Five quotations

An interesting blogmeme, spotted at Kottke:
Go here and look through random quotes until you find five that you think reflect who you are or what you believe.
Here are mine:

Human beings are perhaps never more frightening than when they are convinced beyond doubt that they are right.
-- Laurens Van der Post, The Lost World of the Kalahari (1958)

I like long walks, especially when they are taken by people who annoy me.
-- Noel Coward (1899 - 1973)

It is only prudent never to place complete confidence in that by which we have even once been deceived.
-- Rene Descartes (1596 - 1650), 'Meditations'

No one has ever had an idea in a dress suit.
-- Sir Frederick G. Banting (1891 - 1941)

Remember, no matter where you go, there you are.
-- Earl Mac Rauch, from "Buckaroo Banzai"
