I once read a quote that goes something like,

I think it's by Proust, but Google doesn't seem to agree. Anyone know this or can find it?

I'll take any quote with a similar sentiment, really. The basic idea of it is that grammar may be annoying and nitpicky now, but one day you'll find yourself in a situation where being grammatically precise will be crucial.
