Hey, if we’re allowed to quote our own signatures, then I’ve got the best:  “I say in speeches that a plausible mission of artists is to make people appreciate being alive at least a little bit. I am then asked if I know of any artists who pulled that off. I reply, ‘The Beatles did’.”
Kurt Vonnegut, Timequake, 1997

Well, it’s obviously a memorable quotation if you bothered to put it in your sig. I quoted mine mainly because I won’t have it forever. 

It verges from the sublime to the ridiculote

I don’t know if here is your “why”, but that’s certainly your “how” @Ahhh Girl. They did it for me when I was sixteen, they still do it now.

I realize black absorbs the heat, but it also protects your body better against the sun. Six of one…

When I wear dark clothing, it is no mystery what color my dog is.

The first time I saw that movie as a kid, it gave me the creeps. Many years later I watched it as an adult. It gave me the creeps again. Great movie.

For a few moments there, I was happier than happy, healthier than healthy, and I saw these words scrawled on the tiles over a wash basin:

“To be is to do” — Socrates.
“To do is to be” — Jean-Paul Sartre.
“Do be do be do” — Frank Sinatra.

Kurt Vonnegut: Deadeye Dick (1982)

(There are many variations on this graffito.)
