We all enjoy and know a great deal of "famous" quotes from prominent members of society and they are quoted regularly here on ATS...however I would like to spend some time honoring the less "known" or "popular" quotes from the great members here on ATS.

It seems like almost every post in almost every thread there is a simplified comment by a member that sums their opinion up nicely. I think members deserve some credit for these inspiring one(two) liners.

This thread is dedicated to highlight some of your own quotes as well as some quotes of others that you liked during your time here at ATS.

I encourage everyone to post their own quotes and quotes they liked from other members during their time here on ATS.

Please ORIGINAL quotes only...if you can include the post/thread that included the quote you liked from other members that would improve the quality of this thread! If you can't find the post/thread the quote was located in that is fine just make sure you credit the quote appropriately.

I'll kick it off:

***My own quotes:***


"It is a contribution to ignorance that one puts value in the messenger and not the message."
-Albert Einstein

"I once had an original thought, that upon further investigation was reduced to a plagiarism"
-Nothing New Under The Sun

“We all live in a cage, some are just bigger than others.”
-Sly1one

"Before you chose to "believe" something...try and look at it from the fence, not only is it a better view but you won't be making a choice out of ignorance"
– Sly1one

"Reality is an illusion perpetuated by a limited perspective."
–Sly1one

When the process of fighting crime does more damage and harm than the crimes said process is trying to prevent...then the justification for the process is lost.
-Sly1one

"If you you think the problems we cause are bad...wait till you see our "solutions"
-Government




***MEMBER QUOTES:***


“If energy is given to small mind, small mind grows.
If energy is given to big mind, big mind is realized.”

-Aqualung2012

“It's pointless to try injecting reason into this egotistical masturbation fest.”
-watchitburn

”Laws are made to be broken, then a new set of laws will be written, only to be broken.
-Wifibrains

“Typically, people calling other people trolls are the trolls themselves...or just idiots.”
-SaturnFX
www.abovetopsecret.com...

” If anyone genuinely cared about equality, they would stop using terms such as 'womens rights' or 'mens rights' or 'minority rights' or whatever. There's only one kind of 'rights': Individual rights”
-CaptainIraq

More of my favorite member quotes come!! I wanted to get this post off the ground and leave some room for others to post their own quotes as well as quotes of other members that they liked.

“Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.” - Albert Einstein

"Only those who attempt the absurd can achieve the impossible." - Albert Einstein

"Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius -- and a lot of courage -- to move in the opposite direction." - Albert Einstein

"Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the the universe." - Albert Einstein

“If you can't explain it to a six year old, you don't understand it yourself.” - Albert Einstein

And the ones in my sig.

Hmm this is very interesting. I've got one I actually wrote down in my journal.

" I'm not a conspiracy theorist, I'm a human being. Truthers, birthers, no planers, liberals, conservatives, hippies, rednecks....who the h*ll is any of those things. It's a stereotype, one you've been handed by people who have vested interest in making sure no one listens to your questions." -twitchy

As far as my OP Einstein quote...its really my quote but I gave Einstein credit to illustrate the point the quote was addressing.

And this is one reason why ATS needs a private notes section in the member profiles.

I actually replied to someone in a thread that the next time one of these threads came up I was gonna include their post.
