DailyQuotes 1/3

First of all, HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYBODY! I hope it'll be even better for you than the previous one!

And now, as per our tradition, it's time to initiate the first installment of our DailyQuotes list™. That is, the one that'll continuously get filled throughout the first 1/3 of 2012 with snippets that might or might not inspire others to either have a laugh or go into deep contemplation (as if!) Those will be also featured on the community sidebar, daily.
