    Post your favorite quotes here :D

    What is your favorite quote, and please provide a brief explanation. :)

    "Don't go for looks, they can deceive. Don't go for wealth,
    even that fades away. Go for someone who makes you
    smile because it takes only a smile to make a dark day
    seem bright."
    ~ Unknown


    One of my favorite quotes :D Most of all relationships is missing this fine point. In my opinion this quote defines true love :) What matter most is in a persons inner self, not in their looks nor their wealth...

    "Do not do to others what you do not want done to yourself"
    ~Confucius


    This piece of wisdom is as old as China herself. The Golden Rule of Confucianism, Covers many aspects of respect for others. I always keep that in mind no matter where I go and what i say, coz this quote if very true to me :D

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    So, Please take some time and post the quote that portrays you, the best :) Also provide a brief explanation...

    Forgive your enemy but never forget their names. - John F. Kennedy

    "Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment."
    - Buddha


    One of the best quotes i have ever had the pleasure to read. It tells us to focus on the present and treat the "Now" is the most important part of your life. The future is something you mould today, not by dreaming but with action. The past itself is gone, nothing we do now can change those events ever. So we must move on.


    "Imagination is more important than knowledge."
    - Albert Einstein


    It reminds me that knowledge isnt everything. In the infinite cosmos of Space and Time there may be countless variations and probabilities regarding the laws of physics and the way that they manage to interact with each other. In the end nothing is for certain, everything is subject to change and arguement. There is no satisfaction gained from locking your mind into a set order of rules and monotonous progressions forged by others of different ideals. That is why we need imagination. Not only to broaden our aspects and ambitions but also bcuz its fun. :D

    (I think i overdid that one)

    Well I don't feel like using my brain to recall them all, so I'll just list the best ones by the book character who said the most quotes I like, Lord Henry Wotton:

    [SECRET]"I can believe anything, provided that it is quite incredible."

    "Laughter is not at all a bad beginning for a friendship, and it is far the best ending for one."

    "I like persons better than principles, and I like persons with no principles better than anything else in the world."

    "The terror of society, which is the basis of morals, and the terror of God, which is the secret of religion – these are the two things that govern us."

    "The only way to get rid of a temptation is to yield to it. Resist it, and your soul grows sick with longing for the things it has forbidden to itself, with desire for what its monstrous laws have made monstrous and unlawful."

    "The only difference between a caprice and a life-long passion is that the caprice lasts a little longer."

    "Humanity takes itself too seriously. It is the world’s original sin. If the cave-man had known how to laugh, History would have been different."

    "Nowadays people know the price of everything, and the value of nothing"

    "People are very fond of giving away what they need most themselves. It is what I call the depth of generosity."

    "The basis of optimism is sheer terror."

    "To be good is to be in harmony with one’s self. Discord is to be forced to be in harmony with others."

    "Good resolutions are useless attempts to interfere with scientific laws. Their origin is pure vanity."

    "To become the spectator of one’s own life is to escape the suffering of life."

    "A man can be happy with any woman, as long as he does not love her."

    "Decay fascinates me more than development."

    "To define is to limit."

    "To be popular one must be a mediocrity."

    "If I could get back my youth, I'd do anything in the world except get up early, take exercise or be respectable." [/SECRET]

    Fyodor Dostoyevsky quotes:
    [SECRET]“The greatest happiness is to know the source of unhappiness.”

    “Lying to ourselves is more deeply ingrained than lying to others”

    “Man has such a predilection for systems and abstract deductions that he is ready to distort the truth intentionally, he is ready to deny the evidence of his senses only to justify his logic” [/SECRET]

    I'll post some funny ones tomorrow when my brain is working.

    It is disgusting to notice the increase in the quantity of coffee used by my subjects, and the amount of money that goes out of the country as a consequence. Everybody is using coffee; this must be prevented. His Majesty was brought up on beer, and so were both his ancestors and officers. Many battles have been fought and won by soldiers nourished on beer, and the King does not believe that coffee-drinking soldiers can be relied upon to endure hardships in case of another war. - Frederick the Great

    Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.
    -Ralph Waldo Emerson
    US essayist & poet (1803 - 1882)

    I think this quotation needs to be put into practise by us all, for instance, there are tonnes of fields one can choose to study but have we ever stopped and wondered what it might feel like to be different? A bit original?

    Putting it into Pokemon, well, why should we cry about a pokemon's brokeness or not, why not just choose a pokemon and make it the best counter there is!

    Ralpha Waldo, one of my favourite poets. :)

    I have so many. I'll just put them in /secret tags.


    [secret]"You got enemies? Good. It means you stood up to them." - Eminem

    "I don't care if you're black, white, straight, bisexual, gay, lesbian, short, tall, fat, skinny, rich or poor. If you're nice to me, I'll be nice to you. Simple as that." - Eminem

    "The world will not be destroyed by the ones who do evil, but by those who watch and do nothing." - Albert Einstein

    "The reason people find it so hard to be happy is that they always see the past better than it was, the present worse than it is, and the future less resolved than it will be" – Marcel Pagnol.

    "Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive and go do it. Because what the world needs is more people who have come alive" – Howard Thurman.

    "Too many people spend money they haven’t earned, to buy things they don’t want, to impress people they don’t like" – Will Rogers.

    "In the end, it’s not going to matter how many breaths you took, but how many moments took your breath away" - Shing Xiong.

    "People were created to be loved. Things were created to be used. The reason the world is in chaos, is because things are being loved, and people are being used."

    "Dear Heart, fall in love only when you’re ready, not when you’re lonely" – Anony-mouse.

    "It’s impossible” said pride. “It’s risky” said experience. “It’s pointless” said reason. “Give it a try” whispered the heart

    "It seems when you want someone, they don't want you. And when someone wants you, you don't want them. And when you both want each other, something has to come around and mess it up."

    "There are so many people out there that will tell you that you can't. What you've got to do is turn around and say, 'Watch me.' " [/secret]

    You sure that one goes that way SPS? Seems wordier than how I ever see it.

    The entire Fight Club narrative would make an excellent quote, but I'll just name a few from the movie I enjoy:

    "You are not a beautiful and unique snowflake. You are the same decaying organic matter as everything else. We are all part of the same compost heap."

    Shouldn't really need explaining. I just love this quote.

    "What do you wish you'd done with your life? If you died right now, how would you feel about your life?"

    This one is so effective, to me, because it's asked while drifting into oncoming traffic. It makes me think; have I done with my life what I wanted to achieve by now? Am I happy with how I'm living?

    "I am who I am, I am what I have done." -Marche Radiuju

    Sometimes we let others perceptions of us stain our own views. This is a nice reminder that our actions define who we are, not the other way around.

    Yeah yeah, movies and video games. Philosophers say wonderful things, yes, but they don't have the strength that the context of a story can give. Everyone remembers 'don't cry wolf', and nobody remembers 'To do the same thing over and over again is not only boredom: it is to be controlled by rather than to control what you do.' (Heraclitus).

    "It's said that love is the most powerful force in the universe. I am attempting to harness that power to create weapons of mass destruction...As I understand it, it's a powerful attraction; like a strong nuclear force, is it not?" - Deadeye, RPG Shooter: Starwish - I forget the writer...not sure how to explain it either.

    "If we see only what we know, how does anyone ever see anything new?" - Old dude from "What the Bleep Do We Know?" - If I recall correctly, this was found from a search on multiple dimension theories. I'm bad at explaining things, but i found this to be a quote that inspires creativity.

    "Man is least himself when he speaks in his own person. Give him a mask and he'll tell you the truth." --Oscar Wilde.

    I don't embrace this in the sense that I rape, murder and pillage daily; but I do think that nothing is sacred. Regardless of what something is, if a joke can't be made about it it's not worth my time.
