Re: Favourtie Quotes

"The French don't know it but we're at war with America. A permanent war, an economic war, a war without dead. Yes, Americans are tough, voracious. They want absolute power over the world. A war without apparent dead and yet a war to death"

François Mitterrand at the end of his life while eaten away by cancer. He had nothing left to lose when he said this.


"It is only when the white man has destroyed the whole forest, when it has killed all fish and all animals and that all rivers have dried up that he will realize that nobody can eat money."

An Indian Chief. I thought it was Sitting Bull but now I don't think so.

things were created to be used.
The reason why the world is in chaos is because things are being loved, and people are being used."

So now you'd better stop and rebuild all your ruins...
For peace and trust can win the day despite of all your losing.

So sad, but so true. I think my down mood is showing now?

Re: Favourtie Quotes

People who want to improve should take their defeats as lessons, and endeavor to learn what to avoid in the future. You must also have the courage of your convictions. If you think your move is good, make it. - Capablanca

Applies for Chess, applies for real life as well

Good one Of course, Capablanca is mainly known for almost never losing, so he didn't learn as much as he could have

Re: Favourite Quotes

“Facts are but the Play-things of lawyers,-- Tops and Hoops, forever a-spin... Alas, the Historian may indulge no such idle Rotating. History is not Chronology, for that is left to Lawyers,-- nor is it Remembrance, for Remembrance belongs to the People. History can as little pretend to the Veracity of the one, as claim the Power of the other,-- her Practitioners, to survive, must soon learn the arts of the quidnunc, spy, and Taproom Wit,-- that there may ever continue more than one life-line back into a Past we risk, each day, losing our forebears in forever,-- not a Chain of single Links, for one broken Link could lose us All,-- rather, a great disorderly Tangle of Lines, long and short, weak and strong, vanishing into the Mnemonick Deep, with only their Destination in common.”

- Thomas Pynchon "Mason & Dixon"

It's always Night, or we wouldn't need Light. - Thelonius Monk (via Thomas Pynchon)

Re: Favourite Quotes

“To be governed is to be watched, inspected, spied upon, directed, law-driven, numbered, regulated, enrolled, indoctrinated, preached at, controlled, checked, estimated, valued, censured, commanded, by creatures who have neither the right nor the wisdom nor the virtue to do so. To be governed is to be at every operation, at every transaction noted, registered, counted, taxed, stamped, measured, numbered, assessed, licensed, authorized, admonished, prevented, forbidden, reformed, corrected, punished. It is, under pretext of public utility, and in the name of the general interest, to be place under contribution, drilled, fleeced, exploited, monopolized, extorted from, squeezed, hoaxed, robbed; then, at the slightest resistance, the first word of complaint, to be repressed, fined, vilified, harassed, hunted down, abused, clubbed, disarmed, bound, choked, imprisoned, judged, condemned, shot, deported, sacrificed, sold, betrayed; and to crown all, mocked, ridiculed, derided, outraged, dishonored. That is government; that is its justice; that is its morality."

- Pierre -Joseph Proudhon

It's always Night, or we wouldn't need Light. - Thelonius Monk (via Thomas Pynchon)
