I really tried to get my previous boss to get some of their motivational posters to decorate our, at the time, new office.

When in 1986 Apple bought a Cray X-MP and announced that they would use it to design the next Apple Macintosh, Seymour Cray replied, "This is very interesting because I am using an Apple Macintosh to design the Cray-2 supercomputer."

"We have just enough religion to make us hate, but not enough to make us love one another." - Jonathan Swift

and a few from Bill Cosby:

"Nothing separates the generations more than music. By the time a child is eight or nine, he has developed a passion for his own music that is even stronger than his passions for procrastination and weird clothes."

"There is hope for the future because God has a sense of humor and we are funny to God."

"The essence of childhood, of course, is play, which my friends and I did endlessly on streets that we reluctantly shared with traffic."

"Let us now set forth one of the fundamental truths about marriage: the wife is in charge."

From the 30th Anniversary party on Ian and Amie's dock: By BobKay, describing the memory of the senses; "... We have sight memory, we have olfactory memory, but we don't have oral memory." Recognizing the bewildered expression on the faces of those in the conversation, he stopped talking for a second, closed his eyes, shook his head left and right and slowly clarified, while tugging on his ear lobe, "... A..U..R.. aural memory," with a resounding "oh.. OH! OK, That make more sense" from the crowd.

“People are taking the piss out of you everyday. They butt into your life, take a cheap shot at you and then disappear. They leer at you from tall buildings and make you feel small. They make flippant comments from buses that imply you’re not sexy enough and that all the fun is happening somewhere else. They are on TV making your girlfriend feel inadequate. They have access to the most sophisticated technology the world has ever seen and they bully you with it. They are The Advertisers and they are laughing at you. You, however, are forbidden to touch them. Trademarks, intellectual property rights and copyright law mean advertisers can say what they like wherever they like with total impunity. Fuck that. Any advert in a public space that gives you no choice whether you see it or not is yours. It’s yours to take, re-arrange and re-use. You can do whatever you like with it. Asking for permission is like asking to keep a rock someone just threw at your head. You owe the companies nothing. Less than nothing, you especially don’t owe them any courtesy. They owe you. They have re-arranged the world to put themselves in front of you. They never asked for your permission, don’t even start asking for theirs.” — Banksy

Yeah. While I couldn't see myself going out and destroying advertisements, I totally get where he's coming from.
