Some of my favorite quotes: 

"We live in a world which is full of misery and ignorance, and the plain duty of each and all of us is to try to make the little corner he can influence somewhat less miserable and somewhat less ignorant than it was before he entered it."
- Thomas Huxley

"The bedroom is like a wedding gown- it is bad luck to let the fellow see in it before you are married." . . . 
"It's respect, that's what a girl wants from a boy. If the girl gives in too easily- the boy will never take her seriously."
- Quotes from the movie COME SEPTEMBER by actor Rock Hudson to his co-star Sandra Dee in the 1961 film.

"My dear girl, the Yankees aren't fiends. They haven't horns and hoofs, as you seem to think. They are pretty much like Southerners- except with worse manners, of course, and terrible accents."  Rhett Butler in the movie GONE WITH THE WIND (1939).

“I want to make you faint. I will make you faint. You’ve had this coming to you for years. None of the fools you’ve known have kissed you like this—have they? Your precious Charles or Frank or your stupid Ashley—I said your stupid Ashley. Gentlemen all—what do they know about women? What do they know about you? I know you.” – Rhett Butler to Scarlett in GONE WITH THE WIND
