DailyQuotes 2/3

Hey, I almost forgot! Well, as per our tradition, it's time to initiate the second installment of our DailyQuotes list™. So this list will keep being updated throughout the second 1/3 of 2012 with lines that might or might not inspire us to either have some lulz or go into deep contemplation (yeah yeah, keep wishing!) As usual, the list will be also featured on the community sidebar, and (hopefully) updated daily.

The Dailyquote list for the 2nd third of 2012 begins/continues right behind the cut (with links):
