O, train me not, sweet mermaid, with thy note,
To drown me in thy sister's flood of tears:
Sing, siren, for thyself and I will dote;
Spread o'er the silver waves thy golden hairs,
And as a bed I'll take them and there lie.

--William Shakespeare, Comedy of Errors

In the blue depth of waters,
Where the wave hath no strife,
Where the wind is a stranger,
And the sea-snake hath life,
Where the Mermaid is decking
Her green hair with shells;
Like the storm on the surface
Came the sound of thy spells.

--Lord Byron, "Manfred"

At sea once more we had to pass the Sirens, whose
sweet singing lures sailors to their doom. I had
stopped up the ears of my crew with wax, and I alone
listened while lashed to the mast, powerless to steer
toward shipwreck.

--Homer, The Odyssey

Them sirens loved him up and turned him into a
horny toad!

--O, Brother, Where Art Thou?

Now, on occasion, I like to settle down and watch Buffy (Hey Willow and Xander are kick ass!) And so I'd thought I'd post one of my favorite quotes from B:TVS. And relax... I don't post quote too often here.

"Passion. It lies in all of us. Sleeping ... waiting ... and though unwanted, unbidden, it will stir ... open its jaws and howl. It speaks to us ... guides us. Passion rules us all. And we obey. What other choice do we have? Passion is the source of our finest moments. The joy of love ... the clarity of hatred ... the ecstasy of grief. It hurts sometimes more than we can bear. If we could live without passion, maybe we'd know some kind of peace. But we would be hollow. Empty rooms, shuttered and dank. Without passion, we'd be truly dead."

VC Quotes
My note: They did not include most of the quotes I love most those $#%$##%$#.

Also I've noticed they didnt bother to look back when spelling a few words correctly (or edit their typos)... would it have killed them to look at that word again before typing it in?
