I wish I'd said it first:
"The world is a stage but the play is badly cast"
"In the end, it's not going to matter how many breaths you took, but how many moments took your breath away."
"Life is hard; it's harder if you're stupid."
"Life is a great, big canvas and you should throw all the paint you can on it."

Okay... Now this is creative. It also is real, real creepy.
Man Builds Guillotine to Kill Himself
ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) — The body of a 41-year-old man was found in a wooded area next to a guillotine he built and used to kill himself, police said. The man, from the Detroit suburb of Melvindale, was discovered Monday by workers from a shopping center near his home.
Allen Park Deputy Police Chief Dale Covert said the roughly six-foot tall guillotine was bolted to a tree and included a swing arm. Covert said police also found several store receipts detailing the materials used to assemble the device.
"I can't even tell you how long it must have taken him to construct," he said. "This man obviously was very determined to end his life."
