So I’m ordering new checks. I decided to pay a bit extra for something that fits my personality. Thus, here is the design I will purchase:

Now then, on this check, I can put a quotation of sorts right above the signature line. It can be up to two lines of 4 characters (including spaces).
Given a) The style of check I will be using, and b) the fact it IS a check and c) my personality, I have narrowed the choices down to the following.
“Death is more universal than life;
everyone dies but not everyone lives.”
Every society honors its live
conformists and its dead troublemakers.
“Speak not of my debts unless you mean
to pay them.” - English Proverb
“Why should the devil have all the good
tunes?” - Rowland Hill
“Be yourself, who else is better
qualified?” - Frank J. Giblin
“Music should never be harmless.”
- Robbie Robertson
“Money is better than poverty, if only
for financial reasons.” - Woody Allen
“Money is something you got to make in
case you don’t die.” - Max Asnas
Normal is not something to aspire to,
it’s something to get away from.
“Alas! how deeply painful is all
payment!” - Lord Byron
“I would rather be remembered by a song
than by a victory.” - Alexander Smith
Okay, so I leave it to my fellow Dopers. Which quote of the above do you like best, taking into consideration where it will be used and whom will be using it?
Or do you, maybe, have something better? Please let me know, so I can start confusing and/or amusing my bank for years to come!
