I think these two will be added

Edited to add: I've just looked Voltaire's quote up and found what preceded it, hope you don't mind me posting it here:

Yes Sheba, I like your signature quote, some of these quotes bring a moment of thoughtfulness when things are getting heated.....
And I don't mind at all, I was hoping for members to reply and post their own quotes...
