All Time Greatest Quotes of All Time!

disclaimer: not sure if this is in the right section of the forum, feel free to move, mods


ok, so i have a presentation in my irish literature class next week on....bono!! now, my lil presentation is going against the likes of oscar wilde, james joyce, michael collins, st. patrick, brian boru.....basically against every irish hero there was. some in my class have openly mocked the idea that bono is an "irish hero" and although i know deep down they're incorrect, i feel i must prove this fact to them.

soooooo, i am asking for deep, philosophical, ranting, raving, inspiring, hopeful, hopeless, fantastic, cacphonous, wondrous, humorous, humbling, bright shiny quotes from the man himself or about him. lyrics, articles, soundbites ANYTHING at all. anything and everything thanks in advance!

People who mocked the idea aren't going to have their minds changed by your presentation, so don't worry about that while doing this.

Also, what defines a "hero?"

Here are some recent ones. I think perhaps some of the most impressive quotes are what others have said about him. Some of those can be found at the bottom of the page.

Bono - Wikiquote

Bono: The world is more malleable than you think and it's waiting for you to hammer it into shape.

Does anyone have a quote by Bono (probably 10 years old, at least) about human responsibility of "giving back everything we can to God"?

The quote was a broader statement about life, but the lyric from Magnificent is founded in the same thought.
