Quotations and funny sayings to make any introvert proud

Since Twitter and their 140 character updates I began to enjoy quotations more for their wisdom. You can find wisdom from famous people who many of us know as well as sayings from people who are not so famous. Either way, their words are worth quoting. Here are some of my favorite quotations about aspects of introverts.

Do you have any to add? From the famous or not so famous, the living and the dead?
