— Harlan Ellison

"The two most common elements in the universe are Hydrogen and stupidity."
— Harlan Ellison

— Harlan Ellison

"Time is like a river flowing endlessly through the universe. And if you poled your flatboat in that river you might fight your way against the current and travel upstream into the past. Or go with the flow and rush into the future.

"

Nothing done with love offends me.

A. A. Attanasio

We are all fugitives. We have always been fugitives from the void. Whatever comfort, whatever power we gain from outside ourselves diminishes us - because comfort and power, unless they are won from the void inside us, are illusions that make us forget the emptiness that carries us. When we forget that, we believe we deserve comfort and power and so we are capable of any evil. We deserve nothing but what we can make of ourselves. We deserve nothing else. And when we understand that, then nothing is enough.

A. A. Attanasio

What if I were to tell you that evil is itself a dispensation of good? And that good has no authority without evil?

A. A. Attanasio

and a quote that had a big impact on me occurred during the election when I was talking to an American early in the election process.

"I would vote for Ron Paul but I don't want to waste my vote"

my response was... Are you insane ?

oh and one I just made up the other day... tell me if you like it

"If the truth is staring you in the face,poke at it allot, and it will go away"

Here are some from Vince Lombardi. I am a sports junkie and always loved his quotes.
