Re: Favourtie Quotes

"When you decide to be something, you can be it. That's what they don't tell you in the church. When I was your age they would say we can become cops, or criminals. Today, what I'm saying to you is this: when you're facing a loaded gun, what's the difference?" - Frank Costello "The Departed"

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

Re: Favourtie Quotes

A well-written life is almost as rare as a well-spent one.

"People were created to be loved
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."

Re: Favourtie Quotes

'We grow great by dreams. All big men are dreamers. They see things in the soft haze of a spring day or in the red fire of a long winter's evening. Some of us let these great dreams die, but others nourish and protect them; nurse them through bad days till they bring them to the sunshine and light which comes always to those who sincerely hope that their dreams will come true.'

- Woodrow Wilson

'A sense of proportion is a great quality invented by a human, however, in fact it's not well spread among people'

- My own

Re: Favourtie Quotes

"You can get just so much from a good thing
You can linger too long in your dreams
Say goodbye to the "Oldies But Goodies"
Cause the good ole days weren't always good
And tomorrow ain't as bad as it seems" - Billy Joel "Keeping the Faith"

Re: Favourtie Quotes

"Her grandmother spoke to her often of men and she spoke with great earnestness and she said that rash men were a great temptation to women and this was simply a misfortune like others and there was little that could be done to remedy it. She said that to be a woman was to live a life of difficulty and heartbreak and those who said otherwise simply had no wish to face the facts. And she said that since this was so nor could it be altered one was better to follow one’s heart in joy and in misery than simply to seek comfort for there was none. To seek it was only to welcome in the misery and to know little else. She said that these were things all women knew yet seldom spoke of. Lastly she said that if women were drawn to rash men it was only that in their secret hearts they knew that a man who would not kill for them was of no use at all.”

Cormac Mccarthy, The Crossing.

All things are subject to interpretation whichever interpretation prevails at a given time is a function of power and not truth.

Re: Favourtie Quotes

"When asked to explain the meaning of a term X to someone who, while more or less fluent in our language , does not know this specific term, we invariably respond with a potentially endless series of synonyms, paraphrases or descriptions of situations in which the use of the term would be appropriate. In this way, through the very failure of our endeavor we circumscribe an empty space, the place for the right word- precisely the word one is trying to explain. So at one point, after our paraphrases fail, all we can do is to conclude in exasperation: "In short, it is X!" Far from functioning as a simple admission of our failure, however this can effectively generate an insight - if, that is through our failed paraphrases we have successfully circumscribed the place of the term to be explained" - Slavoj Žižek

Re: Favourtie Quotes

That was some quote Pfloyd! I can't compete with Pfloyd so I won't try, but I found this quote that I thought was very funny.

"I'm tired of all the nonsense about beauty being only skin-deep. That's deep enough. What do you want--an adorable pancreas?" - Jean Kerr

Re: Favourtie Quotes

I have never been able to figure that out? "Sorry I can't good rep you back, I have to spread too much rep around!" I think we should be able to Rep anyone we want to whenever we want to Rep them
