I was just reading this post on quotes by @Kchitij2007 and it gave me the idea to write about one of my favorite quotes. This one is from Winston Churchill: “A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on.” I have tons of good quotes listed in my Notepad on my desktop computer. I refer to them quite often. Do you have a compilation of your favorite quotes?

This quote is new to me. I think lies really spread fast, thanks to those reporters who report anything and everything just for the sake of selling newspapers and magazines. Lies spread even faster in our modern era, since online world is active all the time.

You are so right about this modern world of spreading lies faster and faster. @scheng1

I keep most quotes in my head. I have enough trouble finding that, I could never keep track of notes in notepad.

There is no way I have the memory in my head to remember all those wonderful quotes. You are lucky if you can.

That's actually quite a famous one from Churchill! Actually i'll add two of my faves here by Churchill- "We are all worms, but i do believe that i am a glow-worm" "Courage is rightly esteemed the first of all human qualities because it is the quality which guarantees all others. " Thanx for the reference, Keep us inspired

I have my own version of the Rene Descartes quote posted on my profile page here, which I amended to "I do not think, therefore I am not".

I think the first quote I ever kept in a notebook when I was young was the real Rene Descartes. I was very impressed by it.

@marlina I think that my version would have made an excellent epitaph for his tombstone.

That's why I keep my quotes in my Notepad and before that in notebook (physical one).

Your quote got me thinking. May be that's because truth demands proof, a lie has no such constraints? You can pretty much pass it around like confetti. I do have a word doc with all my favorite quotes. I wish to collect more. :) And please do keep sharing, I would love to hear more quotes.
