Through me you pass into the city of woe:
Through me you pass into eternal pain:
Through me among the people lost for aye.

Justice the founder of my fabric mov'd:
To rear me was the task of power divine,
Supremest wisdom, and primeval love.

Before me things create were none, save things
Eternal, and eternal I endure.
All hope abandon ye who enter here.

Such characters in colour dim I mark'd
Over a portal's lofty arch inscrib'd:
Whereat I thus: Master, these words import.

Dante's Divine Comedy

Very wise OHD!

You succinctly put something I've been trying to articulate for ages.

While probably not the most "profound" I've ever heard, this one serves as my mantra for life:

"If you keep on doing what you've always done, you'll keep on getting what you've always got."

Now, four shear profoundness, this one goes a long way:

"The delusion of man is that reality is not an illusion."

"In a single moment, in one stroke, you can become enlightened. It is not a gradual process, because enlightenment is not something that you have to invent. It is something that you have to discover. It is already there. It is not something that you have to manufacture. If you have to manufacture it, of course, it will take time; but it is already there. Close your eyes and see it there. Be silent and have a taste of it. Your very nature is what I call enlightenment. Enlightenment is not something alien, outside you. It is not somewhere else in time and space. It is you, your very core." -Osho

"Everything in this world is the same except for one thing. Interpretation."

"Do unto others as you would have them do unto you."
"Well, just to let you know, I like pain a lot."

"Can't we give ourselves one more chance
Why can't we give love that one more chance
Why can't we give love give love give love give love
give love give love give love give love give love
'Cause love's such an old fashioned word
And love dares you to care for
The people on the edge of the night
And love dares you to change our way of
Caring about ourselves" - Queen

"The physical illusion so unimportant, just as the grass withers and dies while the love and the light of the One Infinite Creator redounds to the very infinite realms of creation forever and ever, creating and creating itself in perpetuity.

Why then be concerned with the grass that blooms, withers and dies in its season only to grow once again due to the infinite love and light of the One Creator? This is the message we bring. Each entity is only superficially that which blooms and dies. In the deeper sense there is no end to being-ness."

Homer: I'll kill you! I'll kill your whole family! Kidding! I'm kidding, we can do that, we have a special friendship. I'm gonna double kill you! Then I'm gonna bury you in a shallow grave, then I'll dig you up and kill you again, that's the beauty of a shallow grave! You sweet little angel. Oh I'm gonna rip your head off and spit down your adorable little neck because I wanna smash your little stupid head. Oh but I'll love you we'll go on a fishing trip. But first I'm gonna put you on a sawmill then punch your little face out. That's what I'm gonna do!
