Favorite quotes from books, movies and nowhere

Recently while reading through Wikipedia, came accross a list of the top 100 movie quotations in American cinema. Apparently, "Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn." from “Gone With The Wind”, tops the chart followed by "I'm going to make him an offer he can't refuse." from “The Godfather”. I think, if such a list be ever created for Bollywood movies, Gabbar's immortal lines "Kitne Aadmi The" OR "Are O Sambha", will be at the top.

Thought of compiling my own favorite list. So, here it goes:

And, when you really want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.
-: The Alchemist

“It’s a very funny thing about life; if you refuse to accept anything but the best, very often you get it.
-: William Somerset Maugham

Accidents don't happen to people who take accidents as a personal insult.”
-: The Godfather

“Selfishness is a virtue.”
-: Fountainhead

“The Moving Finger writes;
and, having writ, Moves on:
nor all thy Piety nor Wit
Shall lure it back to cancel half a Line,
Nor all thy Tears wash out a Word of it.”
-: Rubaiyat (Omar Khayyam)

“Do not squander time, for that is the stuff life is made of.”
-: Gone With The Wind (The Movie)

“Fear can hold you prisoner. Hope can set you free.”
-: The Shawshank Redemption

Apna kaam to sabhi karte hain, par doosron ka kaam karne me jo anand hai wo aur kisi me nahi.
-: Bawarchi

“Choose thy love, love thy choice.”
-: German Proverb

“Woods are lovely, dark and deep;
But I have promises to keep;
And miles to go before I sleep;
And miles to go before I sleep.”
-: Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening
