Few interesting ones:
“Lives of great men all remind us, we can make our lives sublime, and, departing, leave behind us, footprints on the sands of time.” - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

“In prosperity you may count on many friends; if the sky becomes overcast you will be alone.” - Ovid

“The fact that some geniuses were laughed at does not imply that all who are laughed at are geniuses. They laughed at Columbus, they laughed at Fulton, they laughed at the Wright brothers. But they also laughed at Bozo the Clown.” - Carl Sagan

“The only difference between doctors and lawyers is that lawyers merely rob you, whereas doctors rob you and kill you, too.” - Anton Chekhov

I did a little research using Google Books and the earliest attribution I found was to Gandhi in "Continuum, Volumes 7-8" (1969). But since this attribution came more than 20 years after his death, I don't think he really said this.
