May personal favourite one is..

""Homo sapiens, the first truly free species, is about to decommission natural selection, the force that made us.... Soon we must look deep within ourselves and decide what we wish to become."
-Edward O. Wilson

Followed by...

"You cant always get what you want. You cant always get what you want. You cant always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, you might find you get what you need."
-Jagger.

My personal and original motto..

"Everyone is scum until proven decent."

"We are turning into a nation of whimpering slaves to Fear—fear of war, fear of poverty, fear of random terrorism, fear of getting down-sized or fired because of the plunging economy, fear of getting evicted for bad debts or suddenly getting locked up in a military detention camp on vague charges of being a Terrorist sympathizer."

-Hunter S. Thompson-

“The great enemy of clear language is insincerity. When there is a gap between one's real and one's declared aims, one turns, as it were, instinctively to long words and exhausted idioms, like a cuttlefish squirting out ink.”

George Orwell

Funny, Orwell knew who would be president in 2008 and had this to say about him.

The Great Invocation (adapted)

From the point of Light within the mind of God
Let light stream forth into human minds
Let Light descend on Earth.

From the point of Love within the Heart of God
Let love stream forth into human hearts
May the Coming One return to Earth.

From the centre where the Will of God is known
Let purpose guide all little human wills
The purpose which the Masters know and serve.

From the centre which we call the human race
Let the Plan of Love and Light work out
And may it seal the door where evil dwells.

Let Light and Love and Power restore the Plan on Earth.

This is a slightly adapted wording of the great invocation. Men and women of goodwill throughout the world are using this invocation in their own language. Will you join them in using the invocation every day - with thought and dedication?

Man that dude has a few components of his brain in the wrong order...

Did you know he was once a scientologist, but he decided that it was too nuts for him so he went on a killing spree instead? True story.
