BEST QUOTES OF ALL TIME. THE BEST QUOTES EVER.

The best quotes of all time are, ofcourse, hard to compile in one list. Its a highly subjective list. What resonates with one person, might fall flat on the ears of the next, and vice versa. It all depends on your individual life experiences and values. The best quotes can make you think, wonder, laugh, cry or just smile, depending on your current situation. However, the best quote, i suppose, is the quote that you remember. And that you might remember for the rest of your life.

This list of the Best Quotes Of All Time has been compiled from various sources across the internet, and in many cases the quote varies slightly from one source to the other. The meaning and the point should be clear, however, and as good as it gets. If we were not in the room with Abraham Lincoln on that particular day (and im guessing, that not many of us were) then the EXACT frase uttered will always be up for some debate. The internet is a fantastic source of information and an even greater source of misinformation. So dont be upset, if you have read the quote slightly differently somewhere else :)

Please feel free to suggest other Best Quotes Ever in the comment section, so that the list might grow over time. Enjoy!
