Yesterday, director and planet-eater James Cameron announced his intentions to make not one, not two, but FOUR sequels to 2009's Avatar, the second-highest-grossing film of all time. In the wake of that announcement, there was a fake quote passed around, with Cameron stating that one of the reasons for the sequelkakke was because he got pissed at this old tweet from Mental Floss staff writer Dana Schwartz:

Cameron’s reaction is a gag, but the sting of that tweet is all too real. I take issue with Dana. Here now are 32 quotes from Cameron’s opus that I can recite from memory:
