"If you're not remembered, then you never existed." - Serial Experiments Lain

"Death is terrible for anyone. Young or old, good or evil, it's all the same. Death is impartial. There is no especially terrible death. That's why death is so fearsome. Your deeds, your age, your personality, your wealth, your beauty: they are all meaningless in the face of death." - Shiki

"Don't let yourself be blinded by fear or anger. Everything is only as it is." - Mushishi

"The moment people come to know love, they run the risk of carrying hate." - Naruto Shippuden

"Not all those who wander are lost." - LotR
"The world is indeed full of peril, and in it there are many dark places; but still there is much that is fair, and though in all lands love is mingled with grief, it grows perhaps the better." - LotR

"That there's some good in this world Mr. Frodo, and it's worth fighting for." -LotR

"No...anything obtained by killing people can never bring true happiness." - Death Note

"People who are unable to abandon anything, will fail to bring about any change. - SNK/AoT

I got a few from my favorite author

“By now, it is probably very late at night, and you have stayed up to read this book when you should have gone to sleep. If this is the case, then I commend you for falling into my trap. It is a writer's greatest pleasure to hear that someone was kept up until the unholy hours of the morning reading one of his books. It goes back to authors being terrible people who delight in the suffering of others. Plus, we get a kickback from the caffeine industry...”
― Brandon Sanderson

“Authors also create lovable, friendly characters, then proceed to do terrible things to them, like throw them in unsightly librarian-controlled dungeons. This makes readers feel hurt and worried for the characters. The simple truth is that authors like making people squirm. If this weren't the case, all novels would be filled completely with cute bunnies having birthday parties.”
― Brandon Sanderson

“I try to avoid having thoughts. They lead to other thoughts, and—if you’re not careful—those lead to actions. Actions make you tired. I have this on rather good authority from someone who once read it in a book.”
― Brandon Sanderson

I am sure that I will have more to add at a later point, these were just a few that I really enjoyed

EDIT: Came across one more that I felt like I had to add.

“My dear, did you just try to prove the existence of God through the use of your cleavage?”
― Brandon Sanderson, Warbreaker

As an aspiring writer I try to soak up as much as I can from all forms of art for inspiration. In doing so I come across lines that are so good that is makes me green with envy.

So here are lines that I wish I could say are mine but alas are not.

"I'm not going to live there. There's no place for me there... any more than there is for you. Malcolm... I'm a monster. What I do is evil. I have no illusions about it, but it must be done."-Serenity.

"What power would Hell have if those here imprisoned were not able to dream of Heaven?"-Sandman.

"Mr. Madison, what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul." Billy Madison.

"Lie? Me? Never. The TRUTH is far too much fun."- Hook

"Remember children, there are no stupid questions. Just stupid people.” - South Park.

"If you’re not remembered, then you never existed."-Serial Experiments Lain.

“If you only face forward, there is something you will miss seeing.”-Trigun.

And one more for the road.

"You're a team player, a save the day superhero. I hate people like you."-Yu Yu Hakusho

Awesome set of quotes!
Yu Yu Hakusho is my favorite anime series. So I'll add a Yu Yu Hausho quote:
"I admire your elitism."

And some Venture Brothers quotes:
" I dare you to make less sense."
"Evil has struck the House of Venture! The air reeks of an ill wind! Yea, though I have smelt it, that hath dealt it!"
"While you were wasting your time castrating a priceless antique, I was systematically feeding babies.... to hungry mutated puppies!"

Ansem: All worlds begin in darkness, and all so end. The heart is no different. Darkness sprouts within it, grows, consumes it. Such is its nature. In the end, every heart returns to the darkness whence it came. You see, darkness is the heart's true essence.

I have a lot that I save up on my phone.

" When we hit our lowest point, we are open to the greatest change. "
" The eyes are useless when the mind is blind. "
" It's funny how people talk shit about you when the only thing they know is your name. "
" Your mind should be cold and your heart should be on fire. "
" They say home is where the heart is but mine is with someone who will never ever know they have it. "
" Like rain, I fell for you "
" Every move can be quicker. Every drive can be stronger. Every shot can be sharper. "
" It's a metaphor, see: You put the killing thing right between your teeth, but you don't give it the power to do its killing. ”

Hello, Rochelle? No, I do not want to give you my account number and I shall tell you why: because I have already keyed it in three times and given it to several different people including a Beth, a José, and someone who was really rude to me named Kevin. And I think I speak for all Americans when I say that we are SICK of having to call something in and key in the number and then being asked what the number was we keyed in before! Alright? So why don't you get a piece of paper - have you heard of that? And a pen AND WRITE THE DAMN NUMBERS DOWN!

"A fish can swim in a river its entire life, but IT will never know the destiny of the river. IT cannot being to imagine the vast ocean."

"Would you imbalance the entire ocean just to preserve one wave?"

I know they're both water related but they're the only two I can think of, and the two quotes have no connection to each other.
