Ribbon Cutting for Quote War

Okay, it has officially started. Some clarifying rules:
1) All quotes must be left as comments on this post to be counted (please don't leave any non-quote comments)
2) All quotes must be (somewhat) memorized. Absolutely NO looking up a quote online or in a book and copying it down in the tournament. As long as the wording is close to the real quote, you're good, so don't stress too much about remembering the exact thing.
3) All contestants are limited to three quotes at a time. Once you've submitted your three, you must wait for another person to enter in at least one before you can do more. Agreed? Excellent.
Let the Quote War begin!!!

    Where many paths and errands meet
    And whither then I cannot say"
