"Life is what happens behind your back while you're busy pretending to be someone else on the internet."
~ me copying the post above
"Reading novels and secluding yourself from the world, it's not a life worth reading."
~ I don't remember the original quote and owner
"I dreamt of flying into space, yet i'm staring from afar. I dreamt of riches and the babes, yet i'm too poor to even own a car. I need more money..."
~me, lamenting the injustice of life while completely ignoring my own inadequacies
"Honest work and profit have no relation to one another whatsoever."
~ some wall street broker that stole it from some other guy
"You haven't experienced life if you've never experienced pain. Allow me to help..."
~ psychopath in a movie I can't remember
"Love is when two animals in heat still like each other in the morning after."
~ british comedy with a national geographic narration
"What is love? Love is pain. Pain is life. Ergo, love is life. To live is to love, but ''live" is "evil" spelled backwards, so evol is evil. Where am i going with this, you ask? Nowhere. Just like your life if you don't stop reading this crap and start doing something useful instead."
~adapted from a similar quote
“You only value something if you know it’ll end.”
― David Mitchell, The Bone Clocks
"If you cannot do great things, do small things in a great way"
You [should] not examine legislation in the light of the benefits it will convey if properly administered, but in the light of the wrongs it would do and the harm it would cause if improperly administered.
-- Lyndon Johnson
Government is not reason, it is not eloquence, it is force; like fire, a troublesome servant and a fearful master. Never for a moment should it be left to irresponsible action.
-- George Washington
Experience should teach us to be most on our guard to protect liberty when the government's purposes are beneficent...The greatest dangers to liberty lurk in insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well meaning but without understanding.
-- Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis
Rightful liberty is unobstructed action, according to our will, within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others.
-- Thomas Jefferson
Good intentions will always be pleaded for every assumption of authority. It is hardly too strong to say that the Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters.
-- Daniel Webster
Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did, and it never will. Find out just what people will submit to, and you have found out the exact amount of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them; and these will continue until they are resisted with either words or blows, or with both. The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress.
-- Frederick Douglass
The price of liberty is, always has been, and always will be blood. The person who is not willing to die for his liberty has already lost it to the first scoundrel who is willing to risk dying to violate that person's liberty. Are you free?
-- Andrew Ford
Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.
You need only reflect that one of the best ways to get yourself a reputation as a dangerous citizen these days is to go about repeating the very phrases which our founding fathers used in the great struggle for independence.

What you should know, you will always know. If you do not know now, it is because it is not the time for you to know yet.

Dunno if anyone posted this one by Donald reagen:
And they say if we only avoid any direct confrontation with the enemy, he will forget his evil ways and learn to love us. All who oppose them are indicted as warmongers.
Used in a song
If people think nature is their friend, then they sure don't need an enemy.
"There is no such thing as an unarmed spaceship."
"The best moment of love is when you climb the stairs." - Clémenceau
Now a little explanation, when he was alive, kicking and young, prostitution was legal and very often the rooms were at the first floor.
"Rain shouldn't wash away your motivation; it should soak you with hope for a sunny day. "
"There is a place, far from here, beyond the Indigo Plateau, beyond the civilization we humans have built, where only the most dangerous Pokemon roam, all but the strongest and bravest avoid it, and even some of them rarely return. Their wild and savage nature best all but the mightiest. But it is said that those who survive the journey will come face to face with a mountain, a mountain upon which the peak pierces the sky. A mountain that goes on for what seems like an eternity and at its summit, he waits. He waits for those worthy enough merely to face him. He waits for those who dare believe they are flawless, only to be taught how mistaken they have been. He humbles those who believe that just because they have bested the gyms, they are untouchable. He shows those who have attained the title of champion how empty that title is.
His name is Red.
And he does not lose."

" O people, know that you have committed great sins, and that the great ones among you have committed these sins. If you ask me what proof I have for these words, I say it is because I am the punishment of God. If you had not committed great sins, God would not have sent a punishment like me upon you. "

"We like to stick ourselves in crazy."
If nobody from the future comes to stop you then how bad could it possibly be?
Which is why the holocaust is just fine!
