most of these quotes i picked up somewhere on the 'net and i don't really feel like finding out whose quote belongs to whom , some quotes are my own and some mixed . i don't wish to take any credit for any of this .

the school of life , im a full time student

All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing

i am prepard to cooperate but never to subordinate . the only authority i respond to is my conscience which keeps me from harming other people or myself .

The system needs us in order to function , but we don't need it in order to survive

the world has more than enough for every man's (and woman's) necessities , but far too less for every man's greed

to defend yourself from manipulation attempts you have to understand how these work first

Stop the violence stop the killing stop the war stop the greed stop the hatred stop racism and prejudices

The seat of knowledge is in the head, of wisdom,
in the heart

The first step in the acquisition of wisdom is silence, the second listening, the third memory, the fourth practice, the fifth teaching others

kein mitleid für die mehrheit

Finally caught up with a devil named Tarzan
Swingin on a vine
Suckin on a piece of swine
Jiggaboo come up from behind
Hit him with a coconut
Stab him in the gut
Push him out the tree
he falls right on his nuts

Dirty rotten scoundrel, that's what I'm called, on the street
Could connive and cheat but rarely get beat
Ya see I'm streetwise, a con-game pro
Kickin the Bobby bull#, too smart for Willie Bobo
Not stressin five-o, hot hand in celo

We are not Humans having a Spiritual Experience but Spiritual Beings having a Human Experience

Your mind will try to be your master but it is supposed to be your servant

it begins .

I like the native american one that go's something like: only when the last tree has died and last fish been killed and the last water been poisioned will we realise that we cannot eat money.

ooh yes , that was a very inspirational text as well .
if you're into music with lyrics criticizing the system i would reccomend some rage against the machine or atari teenage riot , sonic youth or system of a down , well i dont know your musical preferences if you're more into hiphop this rapper named afu-ra also puts a lot of beautiful messages into his lyrics
or maybe some reggae ?
max romeo , good ol bob marley or peter tosh

They are all great, rage and system of a down in particular. A lot of older metal bands have individual songs critisizing the system, but I love the hip hop and reggae too.. krs one does a bit of both and critisizes the system just as much as rage.

peace and love right back at ya
