your favorite quotes?
    #1795695 - 08/09/03 05:10 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

what are your favorite quotes? as in a short phrase or saying that expresses thoughts or ideas that you agree with, whatever.

for me, remember in the matrix, the oracle points to some latin shit that means "know thyself"? well i suppose thats one of mine- know thyself.

also, anyone ever hear that william blake quote about finding a world in a grain of sand, heaven in the middle of a flower. some shit like that. that one says a lot to me, thats how i think of drug use. it lets people see all the beauty of the world, no matter where they are. you could be staring at your carpet in your room and see more beauty in its intricacy than most people see in a lifetime. that quote shows that what you see is all about how you look- everyting is a matter of perspective..

so do any of you have any interesting/deep/funny/famous quotes that strike a chord with you


--------------------
"Listen Bush, i dont have any weapons. are you listening asshole? i dont have any fucking weapons! whats your problem, you fucking prick? Do you, like, WANT to go to war or something?! hey! whats all that laughter? whats so fucking funny?! Bush? BUSH! *click* Hello? HELLO?"

"I laid in a field of green grass for four hours, god rained gifts of forgiveness and joy upon my being, healing me psychically, mentally, physically, and I realized that we are spirit, not body, and that it is only our illusion that we are seperate from god."

-Bill Hicks

What if everything around you
Isn't quite as it seems?
What if all the world you think you know,
Is an elaborate dream?
And if you look at your reflection,
Is it all you want it to be?

"Today a young man on acid realized that all matter is merely energy condensed into a slow vibration; that we are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively. There is no such thing as death, life is only a dream, and we are just an imagination of ourselves. Here's Tom with the weather."

It's Bill Hicks, Tool has various stuff of his in their music.  Ever listen to him?  You should be able to find mp3's of him on any large file sharing network; he's dead, so I don't think he'd mind :smile:

"When you leave off your clothes and kill your senses, you do not please the Lord:
The man who is kind and who practices righteousness, who remains passive amidst the affair of the world, who considers all creatures on earth as his own self,
He attains the Immortal Being, the true God is ever within him".
-Kabir

"Only someone who is ready
To cut off his head and stamp on it
May enter into the City of Love". - Sahjo Bai


"Where there is Love, there is no reason, rules of commonsense.
When the heart is full of the ecstasy of Love,
Who counts days and dates?" - Sahjo Bai


"The Yogi endowed with fait, though long meditation, experiences that Knowledge within his heart and wins over his senses-that man soon attains knowledge and obtains supreme peace. The ignorant, faithless and confused perish. He who doubts his Spirit is miserable and unhappy in both worlds". - Lord Krishna in Gita

I first saw this on a good friends AIM profile...

"For it is the mind which creates the world about us, and, even though we stand side by side in the same meadow, my eyes will never see what is beheld by yours, my heart will never stir to the emotions with which yours is touched"
--George Gissing

i think its incredible

"It is as it should be". -off some X-Box game my friend's were playing, we love to say it

"Kissass!" - Phil, off of Drowning Mona, it is all in the way he says it, also "I'll mow your lawn, I'll trim your hedges, and I'll kiss your ass! Aha hehe haa!" also by Phil, mocking Bobby. Drowning Mona, definitely Top 10 movie of all time.

"Where's your Le Baron, Freddy? I don't see two Le Baron's, Freddy. It is because they love me more, Freddy. I'm the #1 son! I'm the #1 son!" - George off of Freddy Got Fingered, to which Freddy replies "What about me, Mom", and she says "You can be the #1 son, too". Freddy is like "Yeah, but he gets a Le Baron?!.... also one of the funniest movies of all time.

Definitely, and it is one of the greatest truths in the world... our experiences being completely unique, never before experienced and never again replicated, by ourselves or anyone else....

Kind of makes me feel that my time here is sort of special, that maybe I should be using my time to go for what I want to go for.
Peace.

In search of knowledge, everyday something is gained. In search of the Tao, everyday something is lost.

* Grant me the strength to change the things I can, the serenity to accept the things I can't change... and the wisdom to know the difference.

* Whoever dies with the most money still dies.

* The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man. (George Bernard Shaw)

* What you do today will cost you a day of your life.

* If you've been pounding nails with your forehead for years, it may feel strange the first time somebody hands you a hammer. But that doesn't mean that you should strap the hammer to a headband just to give your skull that old familiar jolt.

* If you keep your mind sufficiently open, people will throw a lot of rubbish into it. (William Orton)
