What is your favorite quote, and why?

A quote can say a lot about a person. I love to read quotes and try to decipher what I believe the meaning is.

My favorite quote is from the movie "The Fountain" -

"Our bodies are prisons for our souls. Our skin and blood the iron bars of confinement. But fear not. All flesh decays. Death turns all to ash. And thus, death frees every soul."

It's comforting to think this way.
