I've recently taken to trying to commit to memory a few lines of my favorite works here and there. It feels it should be a small and rewarding exercise compared to the relatively large number of song lyrics and movie quotations rattling around upstairs.
So, party tricks, battle cries, or tests of your foreign language skills -- I'd like to hear what quotes you have under your belt, and whatever anecdotes you have from knowing them.
