I dont know whether any of you guys remember me, but i was an avid member in this forum for a while back in the day, before it got changed around. I must say it's good to be back, I have missed asking questions and acutally getting thought out responses from intelligent people.....anyhoo...

If you could be immortalized with words, what would you want them to be.
For example,
When i think of Oscar Wilde, among other things, I think of his quote "I can resist everything but temptation"

Would you want to be remembered with a funny little saying like Woody Allen, or something meaningful?

OF COURSE we remember you, Rexxy65, and have missed you. Welcome back!

As for being immortalized or remembered with a saying, I suppose we're thinking of "last words" here? This is a really great idea for a thread -- can't wait to see what everyone else comes up with.

I think as my parting thought, I would like to quote Juba from Gladiator:

I will see you again -- but not yet.

Next?

This is an interesting topic. If I am "going to be remembered" for something, I'd like it to be for something I have written. I'm going to read through some of my favorites and see if something strikes me, but I already suspect that I will not find it; I haven't written it yet, so...

The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.
~Robert Frost

"...time is like a fashionable host
That slightly shakes his parting guest by the hand,
And with his arms outstretch'd, as he would fly,
Grasps in the comer: welcome ever smiles,
And farewell goes out sighing."
~Shakespeare (Troilus and Cressida Act III Scene III)

All men are created unequal.
-Lazarus Long

[from "Let the Crabgrass Grow"]
On Monday mornings I am dedicated to the proposition that all men are created jerks.
~H. Allen Smith
http://www.tealdragon.net/humor/quotes/smith_ha.htm
http://www.magicm.com/jokepage15.html

WHEREAS we hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created sober, and are endowed with certain inalienable rights, such as Life, Grievances, and the Pursuit of Other People's Happiness. Whenever any form of amusement becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the Pan-Antis to abolish it. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that beverages long established should not be abolished for light and transient causes. But when it is evident that Nature herself is in conspiracy against the Constitution of the United States, and that millions of so-called human beings have found in forbidden tipples a cause for mirth and merriment, it is time to call a halt to malt, and have no parley with barley.
~from In the Sweet Dry and Dry by Christopher Morley and Bart Haley

If I were to be remember by my words, I'd want "The darkest memories are usually the fondest".
