Lady GaGa once said "In the deepest hour of the night, I confess to myself three things; I would die if i was forbidden to write, forbidden to love, or forbidden to fashion....love each other, and celebrate the art and lifestyle of music".

I think it's a great quote.

"In the deepest hour of the night" :hea: I killed 23 "poets" already for far less worse than this. And I'm sick of going ionto prison for that.
"I confess to myself" - WTF ? *BLAM*
"bla bla bla" - yeah, right, sure. :mad:

That's so awfully cheesy / saucy and made up by their marketing someone it makes me throw up.

Really, you want to like the 'music', the performance / follow the fad - fine.

No need to "believe" in anything they say, it's not like they are anything authentic or wise.
Don't worry, I did it myself - I am not telling you details, because it is too embarrassing who I put "belief" in when I was way younger.

Really, please, please, please. pretty.

We will not tire, we will not falter, and we will not fail - George Bush

He would rather the poor were poorer, provided the rich were less rich - Margaret Thatcher to a socialist liberal politician in 1990

Government does not solve problems; it subsidizes them - Ronald Reagan

I've always liked the phrase from Fight Club: "It's only after you've lost everything that you're free to do anything". It's true in many aspects, be it the material sense the movie meant or even in the emotional and spiritual sense. Sometimes, it's good to empty yourself entirely after something terrible happens and then it's like your soul reboots and you're seeing life at a diferent light.

I'm watching fight at College at the moment. Its my first time watching it as well. Brilliant film, I like how it illustrates so well the problem with modern life and all the alienation it entails. We haven't watched the whole film as a class yet but I'm going to watch the rest tomorrow. :tmb:

Some quotes that I like:

Aristotle: Courage is the first of human qualities because it is the quality which guarantees the others.

Francois de La Rochefoucauld: Hypocrisy is the homage vice pays to virtue.

Immanuel Kant: Seek not the favor of the multitude; it is seldom got by honest and lawful means. But seek the testimony of few; and number not voices, but weigh them.

Admles@TRF: Whats another word for a thesaurus?

Ghandi was practically a dispenser of coffee-mug worthy quotes :p I always liked this one [paraphrased, since I can't seem to find it online]:

"When two raindrops meet, they share the majesty of the ocean from which they came."

and as much as I love Lady Gaga, I find the quote posted on the first page horribly cheesy. :o

- "Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing left to add, but when there is nothing left to take away." Antoine de Saint-Exupery

- "I was dead until the moment I met you. I was a powerless corpse pretending to be alive. Living without power, without the ability to change my course, was akin to a slow death."

"Ignorance Is Bliss."
-I find too often that whenever I don't know everything it's better. People for instance. The nicest girl I work with I admired so much. I hung out with her once outside of work and she wasnt who I thought. I wouldve been happier if I thought she was still the girl from work. Same thing goes for a lot of people or situations. Once I know all the details of a situation or person, I find I'm usually let down.

"Ignorance Is Bliss."

Yet its countered by the quote "The Truth Shall set you free." Just goes to show, that great words are just empty vessels of encouragement. Its action what gives them life.

"Every tradition grows ever more venerable — the more remote its origin, the more confused that origin is. The reverence due to it increases from generation to generation. The tradition finally becomes holy and inspires awe"

"When you see a check, always play it. It might be mate!"

"perception is reality"

"Even if one's head were to be suddenly cut off, he should be able to do one more action with certainty. With martial valor, if one becomes like a revengeful ghost and shows great determination, though his head is cut off, he should not die."

"It is a good viewpoint to see the world as a dream. When you have something like a nightmare, you will wake up and tell yourself that it was only a dream. It is said that the world we live in is not a bit different from this. "

"When you see a check, always play it. It might be mate!"

The very words I live by.

This is going to be a long one:

Humans exist to chase for happiness.
All people are the same,
What everybody is looking for, is just that bit of happiness.
It’s not something special.
The root of all actions, as a person they are very tiny wishes which are obvious in everyone.
These dreams, these words, who can renounce them?
Who has that right?
But, however,
No matter who, no matter what the wish is.
One cannot bind others and the world to himself.
Determine one’s fate.

If, one allows the thoughts of others, to go beyond that of the world.
His existence is merely one which is drifting by the waves.
Crimes and punishment,
Fate and judgment.
What is obstructing us is the past we created, It is the hate between people.
Even then, they should be thanking now.
Yes, At least..It is the fact that humans exist to pursue happiness.
All the wishes. Concealing those yearnings.
They are born from despair.

I had that as my sig once, it's a great quote :D

for me, I particularly like this one by Nelson Mandela, because I love learning languages so much :D

'If you speak to a man in a language that he understands, it goes to his head. If you speak in his language, it goes to his heart.'

Also, one that my friend said that can always make you feel like laughing

'Life's a *****... if it were a slut, it'd be easier.' :vlol:

What you see depends on what you're looking for. I'd rather have a remarkable flaw than forgettable perfection. (Rae - ViolentBlossom) You were not born a winner, and you were not born a loser. You are what you make yourself be. (Lou Holtz) I don't mind living in a man's world as long as I can be a woman in it. (M. Monroe) ...the way I see it, you can either run from it, or learn from it. (The Lion King) This is life, not heaven.. You don't have to be perfect. To dream of the person you would like to be is to waste the person you are. (Tim Menchen) Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. And today? Today is a gift that's why they call it the present. Whoever said that money doesn't buy happiness didn't know where to shop. (Blair Waldorf, Gossip Girl) If you can 't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best. (M. Monroe)

"En dag i sänder."

I have no idea who said it, nevertheless it means that you should take one day at a time and not think ahead too much. Really works on me whenever I think of some hard exam I have to do soon, which really stresses me out.

Life is a journey, not a destination.

He who never risks greatly, never achieves greatly.

He who knows, does not speak. He who speaks, does not know.

Success starts with believing in yourself.
