Whatever Quotes Your Boat

66 posts in this topic

Just post your favorite quotes, from real people, or movies, or books, whatever!

The coolest, the most inspiring, the funniest, whatever. Naming who said it is up to you.

 

I'll start off, credit to my Media Arts and Communication Technology for saying, in class, and I quote: "Just don't walk down the hallway with a black and a white."

"I must not fear.
Fear is the mind-killer.
Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain."

Bene Gesserit Litany Against Fear from Frank Herbert's Dune.

"I try to avoid having thoughts. They lead to other thoughts, and—if you’re not careful—those lead to actions. Actions make you tired. I have this on rather good authority from someone who once read it in a book."

Last week, someone told me something that stuck with me.

"Fear is only temporary; regret lasts forever."

 

If you're too afraid to try or pursue anything, what kind of life are you leading?

Don't walk behind me; I may not lead. Don't walk in front of me; I may not follow. Just walk beside me and be my friend.

The trouble with fighting for human freedom is that one spends most of one's time defending scoundrels. For it is against scoundrels that oppressive laws are first aimed, and oppression must be stopped at the beginning if it is to be stopped at all.

-H.L. Mencken.

 

He has a lot of good quotes, actually.

Quote

Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want and deserve to get it good and hard.

Quote

Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin to slit throats.

Quote

Man is never honestly the fatalist, nor even the stoic. He fights his fate, often desperately. He is forever entering bold exceptions to the rulings of the bench of gods. This fighting, no doubt, makes for human progress, for it favors the strong and the brave. It also makes for beauty, for lesser men try to escape from a hopeless and intolerable world by creating a more lovely one of their own.

I am not what I ought to be, I am not what I want to be, I am not what I hope to be in another world; but still I am not what I once used to be, and by the grace of God I am what I am.
