Note: Quite a few from Napoleon there but I like a lot of the quotes i've heard from him. Not the best guy to be quoting but still.

The majority of those quotes I got off one webpage...I'm sure I could find others that are good and maybe I'll add more later but at the moment i'm just too lazy to find some more good ones...you guys can add some as well if you want to.
