-Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

For me, the best thing about Cyberpunk is that it taught me how to enjoy shopping malls, which used to terrify me. Now I just imagine the whole thing is two miles below the moon's surface, and that half the people's right-brains have been eaten by roboticized steel rats. And suddenly it's interesting again.
-Rudy Rucker

I love women. They're the best thing ever created. If they want to be like men and come down to our level, that's fine.

I've done my best, and I begin to understand what is meant by 'the joy of strife'. Next to trying and winning, the best thing is trying and failing.
-Lucy Maud Montgomery

I've learned that many of the worst things lead to the best things, that no great thing is achieved without a couple of bad, bad things on the way to them, and that the bad things that happen to you bring, in some cases, the good things.
-Mike Nichols

If you want to be a psychological novelist and write about human beings, the best thing you can do is to keep a pair of cats.

-Audrey Hepburn

The best things and best people rise out of their separateness. I'm against a homogenized society because I want the cream to rise.
-Robert Frost

The best things in life are free. And the cheesiest things in life are free with a paid subscription to Sports Illustrated.

The three best things in life are a good landing, a good orgasm, and a good bowel movement. The night carrier landing is one of the few opportunities in life where you get to experience all three at the same time.
-Variously attributed

There's only one thing in this world that's worth having. Love. L-o-v-e. You love somebody, somebody loves you. That's all there is to it. But if you don't get that, you've got nothing. So you take the next best thing. You take power or money or fame or whatever little morsel you can pick up for yourself as second best.
-Charles Mergendahl

True love is the best thing in the world, except for cough drops.
-William Goldman

We love America just as much as they do. But in a different way. You see, they love America like a four-year-old loves his mommy. Liberals love America like grown-ups. To a four-year-old, everything Mommy does is wonderful and anyone who criticizes Mommy is bad. Grown-up love means actually understanding what you love, taking the good with the bad and helping your loved one grow. Love takes attention and work and is the best thing in the world.
-Al Franken

What was the best thing before sliced bread?

You do what you can for as long as you can, and when you finally can't, you do the next best thing. You back up but you don't give up.
-Chuck Yeager

You may not realize it when it happens, but a kick in the teeth may be the best thing in the world for you.
-Walt Disney
