    ANY kind of quote, even serious ones.
 
  Be not intimidated... nor suffer yourselves to be wheedled out of your liberties by any pretense of politeness, delicacy, or decency. These, as they are often used, are but three different names for hypocrisy, chicanery and cowardice.
-- John Adams

I've always heard the Santayana as:

"Those who refuse to remember the past are condemned to repeat it."

Either way, it's a powerful quote.  When you tour the museum at the Dachau concentration camp just outside Munich, Germany, this quote is on a large display as you leave the museum.  I have remembered it, and the lessons learned, ever since...
If it works, it's a Fluke.
