"If you're not where you want to be, simply will for it to change and it shall. You must truly believe, truly put your heart & soul into something for it to change. To find the answers to those questions that mask our presence on this earth you must find your inner self; become one with your consciousness and delve into the realm of spirituality. Find your answers on your own, and the reward will be a great achievement" -myself

"Never lie, steal, cheat, or drink. But if you must lie, lie in the arms of the one you love. If you must steal, steal away from bad company. If you must cheat, cheat death. And if you must drink, drink in the moments that take your breath away." -from the movie "Hitch"

And by the way, where the hell is everyone else lately?! I want to see some damn quotes!

I choose to quote the great H.P.Lovecraft

"Religion is still useful among the herd - that it helps their orderly conduct as nothing else could. The crude human animal is in-eradicably superstitious, and there is every biological reason why they should be.
Take away his Christian god and saints, and he will worship something else..."

"The world is indeed comic, but the joke is on mankind."

"The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown"
— H.P. Lovecraft

"I'm not like John Lennon, who thought he was the great Almighty. I just think I'm John Lennon.”
- Noel Gallagher

“Some people think football is a matter of life and death. I assure you, it's much more serious than that.”
- Bill Shankly

“He who's not busy being born is busy dying”
- Bob Dylan

"We are going to die, and that makes us the lucky ones. Most people are never going to die because they are never going to be born. The potential people who could have been here in my place but who will in fact never see the light of day outnumber the sand grains of Arabia. Certainly those unborn ghosts include greater poets than Keats, scientists greater than Newton. We know this because the set of possible people allowed by our DNA so massively exceeds the set of actual people. In the teeth of these stupefying odds it is you and I, in our ordinariness, that are here."
- Richard Dawkins

Death is not the biggest fear we have, our biggest fear is taking the risk to be alive - the risk to be alive and express what we really are.

Ha, nice quotes, thanks for sharing. Keep the thread going, I'd like to see some more from you (and everyone else)!

"The cradle rocks above an abyss, and common sense tells us that our existence is but a brief crack of light between two eternities of darkness." -Vladimir Nabokov

"One man with a gun can control 100 without one." - Vladimir Lenin (haha gotta love it)

"The measure of a man is how far he is willing to go to satisfy his will."

"A successful negotiation is as much a matter of military strength looming to one side of the table as it is of cunning and diplomacy at the table."

"Your foe is well equipped, well-trained, battle-hardened. He believes his gods are on his side. Let him believe what he will. We have the tanks on ours."

— Colonel Joachim Pfeiff, Krieg 14th Armoured Regiment

"The most dangerous weapon this galaxy has ever produced is faith. All other force is merely a shadow of what that terrible power can achieve."

"Speed is life" - Israeli Air Force

"There exists out there in the unbroached void of night and in the deeper darkness beyond, things so terrible and vile they would devour us and destroy everything we have made. And why? Because they fear us and rightly so. For we are humanity and the stars are ours." - Lord Solar Macharius, On the Eve of the Macharius Crusade

"Once we were Gods, but what are we now? Willfully ignorant savages and self-deluded fools, little more than helpless children scattered and lost in the cold dark. But I tell you, we have been Gods and we shall be Gods again."

"The Inquisition is a hundred different schools of thought, divided by a single goal."

“You accuse me of being a madman. What right have you to judge what is sane and what is not? I have fought with the shadows on the edge of your vision. I have seen the faces that laugh at you in your nightmares. I have felt the fetid breath that issues from the mouth of hell itself. I have heard the silent voices that make your spine tingle with dread. I have entered the realms between worlds where there is no time or place. I have clashed with creatures the sight of which would sear your soul to the core. I have bested horrors that chill with a gaze of tempt unreasoning terror. I have faced death eye-to-eye and blade to blade. I have stared into the eyes of insanity and met their all-consuming stare. I have done all this for you; for your protection and guarantee of a future for Mankind. And yet you accuse me of being a madman, you, who have never had your sanity tested so sorely. What right have you to call me a heretic and blasphemer, who have not heard the whisper of dark gods in your ear? You are weak. Vulnerable. Human is your frailty. I am strong, yet you still judge me for my sins, you who art most sinful to the heart. Only the insane have the strength enough to prosper; only those that prosper truly judge what is sane.” – Inquisitor Felroth Gelt

"We need spies that look like their targets, CIA officers who speak the dialects terrorists use, and FBI agents who can speak to Muslim women who might be intimidated by men." - Jane Harman

"We need to strengthen the position of the director of the CIA." - Bob Graham

"The CIA is made up of boys whose families sent them to Princeton but wouldn't let them into the family brokerage business." - Lyndon B. Johnson

"Do we belong there or do we not? It doesn't matter how you would answer that because we are there. We're tired, and we can't see the end. We can't even console ourselves that our enemy is just as tired as we are. Because they're not. It is a fallacy that prolonged war will weaken an occupied enemy. It most likely will make your enemy stronger. They get used to the deprivation, and they adapt and respond accordingly. While here at home with every death reported we have to deal with a public-opinion trajectory that slides rapidly from supportive to negative to downright hostile. People just get sick and tired of a moment's silence at a ball game.They just wanna be told that it's over." - Ed Hoffman

"Our enemy has realized that they are fighting guys from the future. Now, ahem, it is as brilliant as it is infuriating. If you live like it's the past, and you behave like it's the past then guys from the future find it very hard to see you. If you throw away your cell phone, shut down your e-mail pass all your instructions face-to-face, hand-to-hand turn your back on technology and just disappear into the crowd No flags. No uniforms. You got your basic grunts on the ground there. They're looking going, "Who is it we're fighting?" In a situation like this, your friends dress just like your enemies and your enemies dress like your friends. What I need you to fully understand is that these people, they do not wanna negotiate. Not at all. They want the universal caliphate established across the face of the Earth and they want every infidel converted or dead. So, what's changed is that our allegedly unsophisticated enemy has caughten on to the factually unsophisticated truth...we're an easy target. We are an easy target and our world as we know it is a lot simpler to put to an end than you might think." - Ed Hoffman

"People are stupid. Torture doesn't work. Under torture, a man will say almost anything to make the pain stop. You have experience with this, I am sure." - Hani Salaam

"Ed Hoffman is the head of the division but he does not know enough until he steals it from the guy on the ground and that's me." - Roger Ferris

“The unreal is more powerful than the real, because nothing is as perfect as you can imagine it. because its only intangible ideas, concepts, beliefs, fantasies that last. stone crumbles. wood rots. people, well, they die. but things as fragile as a thought, a dream, a legend, they can go on and on." -Chuck Palahniuk

"Character is like a tree and reputation like its shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing." - Abraham Lincoln

"A cynic is not merely one who reads bitter lessons from the past, he is one who is prematurely disappointed in the future."

"Sometimes people carry to such perfection the mask they have assumed that in due course they actually become the person they seem."

"A good friend can tell you what is the matter with you in a minute. He may not seem such a good friend after telling."

"Never explain--your friends do not need it and your enemies will not believe you anyway."

"There is nothing like the razor sharp tongue of a good friend to cut through the lies we tell ourselves."

Some Native American proverbs:

Tell me and I'll forget. Show me, and I may not remember. Involve me, and I'll understand. - Tribe Unknown.

You can't wake a person who is pretending to be asleep. - Navajo
