“Everyone has his own specific vocation or mission in life to carry out; a concrete assignment which demands fulfillment. Therein he cannot be replaced, nor can his life be repeated. Thus, everyone’s task is as unique as his specific opportunity to implement it.” Victor Frankl

This thread was a great idea. There are some great quotes here. Many of my favorite quotes inspired some of my best writing. The quote above, from Victor Frankl, pushed this article out of my distal phalanges. LINK

Being right too soon is socially unacceptable.
Robert A. Heinlein

Don't handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Robert A. Heinlein

I am free because I know that I alone am morally responsible for everything I do. I am free, no matter what rules surround me. If I find them tolerable, I tolerate them; if I find them too obnoxious, I break them. I am free because I know that I alone am morally responsible for everything I do.
Robert A. Heinlein

they'll soon discover just how messed up things still are.People Forget far too easily and that's exactly what
they depend on in order to sustain our alligiance to them.

from your OP:

"The penalty good men pay for indifference to public affairs is to be ruled by evil men." - Plato

Wow! Talk about a simultaneous punch in the throat/kick in the groin combo.

I would like to have 2 dozen t-shirts of assorted colors with that quote printed on front and back. And I would like to see millions of Americans wearing that same shirt. If that doesn't wake up the sleepers we may as well tear up the Constitution and call it a day.

We are all born as molecules in the hearts of a billion stars. Molecules that do not understand politics or policies or differences. Over a billion years we foolish molecules forget who we are and where we came from. In desperate acts of ego we give ourselves names fight over lines on maps and pretend that our light is better than everyone elses.
Delen from Babylon 5

We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.
Oscar Wilde

Nothing is impossible, the word itself says 'I'm possible'!

“The real rulers in Washington are invisible, and exercise power from behind the scenes.”

Supreme Court Justice Felix Frankfurter, 1952

“Fifty men have run America, and that’s a high figure.”- Joseph Kennedy, father of JFK, in the July 26th, l936 issue of The New York Times.

“The real truth of the matter is, as you and I know, that a financial element in the larger centers has owned the Government ever since the days of Andrew Jackson.”

A letter written by FDR to Colonel House, November 21st, l933

“The UN is but a long-range, international banking apparatus clearly set up for financial and economic profit by a small group of powerful One-World revolutionaries, hungry for profit and power.

“The depression was the calculated ’shearing’ of the public by the World Money powers, triggered by the planned sudden shortage of supply of call money in the New York money market….The One World Government leaders and their ever close bankers have now acquired full control of the money and credit machinery of the U.S. via the creation of the privately owned Federal Reserve Bank.”

Curtis Dall, FDR’s son-in-law as quoted in his book, My Exploited Father-in-Law.

“The term Internationalism has been popularized in recent years to cover an interlocking financial, political, and economic world force for the purpose of establishing a World Government. Today Internationalism is heralded from pulpit and platform as a ‘League of Nations’ or a ‘Federated Union’ to which the United States must surrender a definite part of its National Sovereignty. The World Government plan is being advocated under such alluring names as the ‘New International Order,’ ‘The New World Order,’ ‘World Union Now,’ ‘World Commonwealth of Nations,’ ‘World Community,’ etc. All the terms have the same objective; however, the line of approach may be religious or political according to the taste or training of the individual.”

Excerpt from A Memorial to be Addressed to the House of Bishops and the House of Clerical and Lay Deputies of the Protestant Episcopal Church in General Convention (October 1940)

How to Achieve The New World Order — Title of book excerpt by Henry Kissinger, in Time magazine (March 1994)

“Let us never tolerate outrageous conspiracy theories concerning the attacks of September the 11th; malicious lies that attempt to shift the blame away from the terrorists, themselves, away from the guilty.”
George W. Bush

“…if the American people had ever known the truth about what we Bushes have done to this nation, we would be chased down in the streets and lynched.”
George H.W. Bush - interview 1992

Quotes from The Secret movie --

People think about what they don't want and attract more of the same.

Every thought has a frequency. Thoughts send out a magnetic energy.

Thought = creation. If these thoughts are attached to powerful emotions
(good or bad) that speeds the creation.

You attract your dominant thoughts.

Those who speak most of illness have illness, those who speak most of
prosperity have it..etc..

You can't have a universe without the mind entering into it.

It's OK that thoughts don't manifest into reality immediately (if we saw a
picture of an elephant and it instantly appeared, that would be too soon).

Your thoughts cause your feelings.

Whatever it is you are feeling is a perfect reflection of what is in the process
of becoming.

Happy feelings will attract more happy circumstances.

You can change your emotion immediately .. by thinking of something joyful,
or singing a song, or remembering a happy experience.

We are mass energy. Everything is energy. EVERYTHING.

Get rid of your TV and become aware of Media Intervention which only serves to
create your reality for you. - Wisdom 1.0

Quotes from Bryan Kemila of

"Let me assure you, there will be no numbers or language in the awareness state. When these teachers say that knowledge will set us free, understand that this a complete lack of awareness. It is, of course, knowledge that placed us in this circumstance we now find ourselves in. Wisdom knows nothing. Knowledge thinks, it knows something."

"Remember, all thoughts are lies. Lies are thoughts that disconnect us from our awareness and form the 3 dimensional reality we only think is real and it is not. Everything 3 dimensional has a shape, colour and sound, and therefore becomes visible and totally deceiving. Removing these thoughts, staying in the moment, reconnects us with our awareness and eternal state, even as we stand here in our 3 dimensional form. We return instantly to the state of awareness. It’s just that quick and that simple."

The 3 dimensional curtain of deception, otherwise referred to a SINISTER FORM of HYPNOTIC MISDIRECTION, separates us from our natural state of wisdom, through awareness. The 3D perspective, everything we see, is a curtain formed in 3 directions – height, width and depth. Part of this 3 dimensional curtain is our physical body. The body has 5 physical sensors programmed to be receptive to the 3 dimensional illusion around us. The way these sensors pick up the signals from the 3D curtain is through subliminal messages. Subliminals are constructed through such techniques as simple shapes, sounds and colours, and then more complex, multi-layered methods, such as reverse imagery, reverse symbolism, distorted symbolism, reverse speech patterns, neuro-linguistic (brain language) programming techniques, and the elaborate use of the language and number systems, among other devious modes of manipulation.

This site discusses the root source of SUBLIMINAL MESSAGING. Through this messaging the luciferian-based THINKERS control and manipulate an illusory smoke and mirrors reality through indoctrination of the masses in intellectual and religious lunacy. Humanity is in a massive state of hypnosis. HUMANITY IS ITSELF, an illusory form, and the product of HYPNOTIC SUGGESTION. The consideration of this information WILL BREAK the TRANCE STATE.

The 3 dimensional illusion is CREATED BY THE THOUGHT PROCESS. Thinking is not being aware. Thinking is that thing any conscious being APPEARS TO DO to attempt to manipulate the future, or relive the pain/pleasure from the past. Both these time zones, the future and the past, do not exist. Therefore, thinking about them to manipulate them is a deception.

However, to consider what is happening in this moment is not called thinking. Staying in the moment and meeting the needs of the moment is awareness of the 3 dimensional space, albeit, an illusory space. To function within this 3D space requires that needs be met. Reality, and our true eternal wisdom state, extends beyond the 3D illusory forms, and that wisdom state simply knows everything through awareness, ALREADY. Our eternal wisdom state knows the manipulation process of the luciferian egregore group of thinkers.

Wisdom knows that this luciferian group plays god and plays the devil. Both of which are none existent. Wisdom, through awareness, sees how this group mindset bands together to manifest the reality they want all humanity to follow.

Oxymoronic Lincoln Quote

Any people anywhere being inclined and having the power have the right to rise up and shake off the existing government, and form a new one that suits them better. This is a most valuable, a most sacred right — a right which we hope and believe is to liberate the world. Nor is this right confined to cases in which the whole people of an existing government may choose to exercise it. Any portion of such people that can may revolutionize and make their own of so much of the territory as they inhabit. Speech in the United States House of Representatives (January 12, 1848)

"Put a monkey in a cage and it becomes a pig, not because it isn't clever and quick, but because it cannot exercise its natural abilities"

"Anything that takes shape can be countered"

An oxymoronic quote indeedy! Now if only the world would shift
it's frequency away from thoughts of war pillage and destruction,
toward something more peaceful and habitable.

I like the one you added from Schopenhauer, how true.
