After having it for a long time, I have decided to replace my Seinfeld quote with a quote from another book I just finished reading. It sounds weird out of context, but that's what makes it funny! Anyways, here's my old quote:
Quote:
"Would you prefer it if she had no hands at all?"
"Would she have hooks?"
"Do hooks make it more attractive, Jerry?"
"Kinda cool looking."
Elaine Benes and Jerry Seinfeld
Enjoy the new one!

Recently, I've left behind my much-beloved sig of seven months:

Quote:
Light lay the earth on the lonely dead
Heavy lay the woe on the heart that lived
I didn't attribute it, because it's Tolkien, but it's from the Lay of the Children of Hurin and refers to the burial of Beleg. There ought to be a space in each of the lines (between "earth" and "on" and "woe" and "on"), but I can't figure out how to do it.

If anyone would like a translation of my current sig, please pm me.

All the ones I have had so far will now be laid to rest. Well, actually I already killed my one of Orlando Bloom quotes and buried it here....toher than that, before I got the one I have now, I only had one. It was a funny quote from the Simpsons. I had it for about 2 days. [img]smilies/redface.gif[/img] Now I have a piece from a rather depressing poem in Russian. It is LotR related, but you couldn't tell just from those two lines. It's a poem from the perspective of a goblin. I'm changing it tomorrow or the day after, because so few people understand it. I love the poem, but the whole thing won't fit in the sig. I had wanted to use a (Russian) poem from the perspective of Aragorn, which is also sad. Now I've decided- today, right now, I'm changing my sig to the Denethor line when Faramir is brought back. Usually, I like sigs that are either funny or sad. Can you tell? [img]smilies/tongue.gif[/img]

Well, I loved this quote, but I'm going to try out a new one for a while. I may change it back, but this is a great quote. Oh, and for anybody who missed it, Falante pelos Mortos is Portuguese for Speaker for the Dead, an Orson Scott Card reference.

I liked these lines from John Donne's "Death, Be Not Proud" very much, and I got several comments on it.

Quote:
Death, be not proud, though some have called thee
Mighty and dreadful, for thou art not so;...
One short sleep past, we wake eternally,
And death shall be no more; death, thou shalt die.
But I have been inspired anew - nothing like watching Henry V with your family the day before Easter! [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

It is time for me to leave behind my brand newish quote

so that I may begin a 'Useless fact of the week' in my sig. This week's is

Changed my sig again. Formerly:

"If it would help you and if it were possible I would go down with you into hell; but you cannot bring Hell into me."
CS Lewis, "The Great Divorce." I have an unhealthy affinity for his books. (Yet, then again, all of us have an unhealthy affinity to books... that's why we're here.)

Even though it came from an absolutely great book, my sig quote has changed AGAIN. Here is my old one:
Quote:
"When Qwilleran rushed into 14-A and found the bathroom flooded and the culprit sitting on the toilet tank, he had no time to analyze motives." From the book The Cat Who Lived High.
Hehe, it's funny, but unfortunately, it would make more sense if you had read the book, so therefore, READ THE BOOK!!!
Anyways, I changed my sig to the lyrics of a beautiful song we sang in choir. I chose that song because not only is it gorgeous, but we also got a superior ranking everytime we sang it at competition, so I guess I'm honoring it by putting it in my sig.

I am just now laying down this part of mine in preference of something new.

I suppose I have a few to bury:

"Jamais Errant": never wandering.

and "Un troubadour errant, ddaign par tous." : a wandering troubadour, scorned by all.

and my first, always my favorite quote from LotR: "'Unless the king should come again?' said Gandalf. 'Well, my lord Steward, it is your task to keep some kingdom still against that event, which few now look to see. In that task you shall have all the aid that you are pleased to ask for. But I will say this: the rule of no realm is mine, neither of Gondor nor any other, great or small. But all worthy things that are in peril as the world now stands, those are my care. And for my part, I shall not wholly fail of my task, though Gondor should perish, if anything passes through this night that can still grow fair or bear fruit and flower again in days to come. For I also am a steward. Did you not know?' And with that he turned and strode from the hall with Pippin running at his side." Quite lengthy, that was probably one of the reasons I changed it.

"I used to think it was awful that life was so unfair. Then I thought, what if life was fair, and all the awful things that happened to us happened because we actually deserved them? Now I take comfort in the general unfairness and hostility of the universe." --Marcus

Far too lengthy, so I ditched it. Let's give Marcus Cole from Babylon 5 a hand, though, for such a great quote.

4th of March 1791 is the estimated date of Louis' immortal birth...the last day he saw sunlight. And for that, we remember the mortal who fell to earth to eternal damnation. Would any of God's angels find him? Shall we light a candle for him?
Now it comes to it, I don't feel like parting with it. After all, why not, why shouldn't I keep it?
I have a feeling it will return....

I've had too many! I should have been coming to this thread for months.

Let me see...there was one about Juan Pablo when he FINALLY won Grand Prix no.2, one about Mark Butcher's AMAZING First Test against Zimbabwe, Darius is gorgeous [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img] , Orlando Bloom's greatest quotes, Paul McCartney 40 years ago, a quote from Yellow Submarine, various Wheel of Time quotes...far too many related to guys. And of course the classic (well to me anyway):
Quote:
Oh sheep swallop! Sheep swallop and bloody buttered onions!
Oh and I hereby lay to rest
Quote:
It may not be cool...Heck, it may not even be normal...But I'll stand up and admit it:
I LIKE WESTLIFE!
~Apologies to all with "Good Taste"- and Americans! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]
Not because I'm ashamed. I got bored!

I liked it, but it was time for a change. Soon will be time for another change, methinks [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img].

My Matrix quotes are swiftly exchanging for... other Matrix quotes [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img], so I would like to bury the one I just hearlessly murdered:
Quote:
Guns. Lots of Guns.
The rest of them have been left to live for now, but the gun quote has been "traded in" for a quote from the trailer for Matrix Revolutions.

1420!

Let's see...I'm not sure if I can remember the early signatures, but here are the ones I do:

Quote:
For a fleeting moment, could one of the sleepers have seen him, they would have thought they beheld an old weary hobbit, shrunken by the years that had carried him far beyond his time, beyond friends and kin, and the fields and streams of youth, an old starved pitiable thing.
This is my favorite passage in all of LotR. I believe that this shows that Gollum actually would have given up the ring. I'll always believe that, RiP.

Quote:
Who says I need a signature?
Ahh, that was a classic in my eyes, rest (peacefully) in peace.

The next sig I had was something that came off the top of my head. I got rid of it after a while because it looked stupider and stupider each time I saw it. I'm sort of glad I can't remember it.

Quote:
"If I were elected mayor the first thing I would do is I'd kill the whole lot of you!"
"pssst, the mic is on"
"Ah know it's on!"
There's hilarious one from Grounds-keeper Willie, from The Simpsons, which is (in my opinion of course) the best show ever.

I might change mine again soon, but I'll let it live for a while. It deserves to.

I decided to finally dispose of

a sig I actually had for a long time. RIP...

Here's my old quote:

Dude look! I'm a wight now! Cool!

It's creepy and it's kooky, mysterious and spooky, there's just one thing to do-ee...the ring must be destroyed!

And, now I retire my lovely Slipknot siggy.

Quote:
I keep my scars from prying eyes, / Incapable of ever knowing why. / Somebody breathe, I've got to have an answer... (Diluted, Slipknot)
Why'm I so fascinated with / Bigger pictures, better things? / I don't care what you think, you'll never understand me!

Mmhmm. It's been replaced with the happier BNL song, Light Up My Room. But just for the Downs. ~_^ Other 'Knot songs pop up frequently on other boards.
