Quote Game

This is where you put up a quote and then you guys have to guess that quote. The person that puts down the Quote have to say if the other people got it right or wrong. If they got it right then they can do their own quote and people can choose whatever quote they want. Since I am starting this I will put up a quote and you guys have to guess it.
"As you go through life you'll see
There is so much that we
Don't understand

And the only thing we know
Is things don't always go
The way we planned

[But you'll see every day]
[That we'll never turn away]
When it seems all your dreams come undone."
Now you guys have to guess this quote. Have fun. Dancer

Robert Burns: "The best-laid schemes o mice an men, Gang aft agley":?:

Actually, I don't think this is the right answer, since I found the right one word for word by googling.

I can guarantee it's not Burns, he never wrote that posh in his life! - I'm referring to the original quote, in post one. Obviously the 'best laid schemes' quote is Burns.

Quotes are too easy a subject to google. If you're going to use quotes in a riddle, then they must be adapted, in some manner, to make them harder.

Ruud got it right it is from The Lion King and it is We are One. So now you could put up your own quote.

I'll make it a little more cryptic:

(Image - G) * 3

That's a G chord, minus the G which leaves only Bs and Ds.
Multiply by 3 gives "Beedeee beedee beedee" by Twiki, the robot in the Motion Picture and 1979–1981 NBC Television Series of Buck Rogers in the 25th Century.

To be more precise: It's a G Major chord.
(G Major - G) * 3 = Major Major Major, a character in "Catch 22", written by - indeed - Joseph Heller.

What...?? I won??! I was so sure that underquark's answer was the right one, as it was more of a quote than my answer... Guess I have to submit a new one then. This is easy, but needs a little dechiphering first:

Bzyzwzyzwll!

Sorry:( it wasn't me. But this shouldn't be hard, maybe if I rewrite it like this:

Bzyzwzyzwll!!!!!!!!!!!!

For a moment I thought you had it there, but now I'm not so sure anymore... Let's just say that the quote can most often be heard in the town of "Yvwilxp".

Is this a single word of 11 letters

Yes. However, I just saw a different spelling for the word, actually as three words... I guess both are good, but this second alternative might actually be the correct one:

Bzyyz wzyyz wll!!!!!!!!!!!!
