The Shine editors have condensed all of that talk down to twenty quotes we think say a lot about this year. They're not all brilliant and certainly can't encapsulate all of 2010. And let's be honest, most of won't inspire you to do good works in the year ahead.

Here are the words we found to be pretty awesome, slightly insane, and kind of hilarious this year.
Talk back! What favorite quotes do you have to add to the bunch?
