When I was young, I always lived by my own quote "An enemy of a friend is no friend of mine"... its a pretty simplistic way of looking at it, and I'm not sure if I agree with it so much anymore.

I love quotes :D

"If the world is seeming tough and nothing seems to be going right in your life, just remember: You are a moose."

A knight in shining armor has never seen battle and is no knight, but a tired sweat-covered knight in bloodstained armor who has seen the battles and wars of love but is still willing to fight for you? He's worth fighting for. The demure princess? A whiny over-demanding gold-digging bitch. The girl who has her fair share of knocks and bruises and lost her childhood but wants you to hold her so she can feel it one more time? She's worth fighting for. - me

From these boards actually, I firmly believe it in every way shape and form.

other quotes I live be

"we're six billion mistakes waiting to make one big one" - me

"You want my respect? Earn it." - me to a prof while leaving his class

"Its not that you save orphans and live for the poor, its not even that you TRY to. Its that when you realize something is wrong, you don't do it. You don't have to be actively good, but you shouldn't be passively bad." - me again

And from others

"It has always been the prerogative of children and half-wits to point out that the emperor has no clothes. But the half-wit remains a half-wit, and the emperor remains an emperor." - Neil Gaiman

"The fact that a believer is happier than a skeptic is no more to the point than
the fact that a drunken man is happier than a sober one." - George Bernard Shaw

"The way it works is, you do the thing you’re scared shitless of, and you get the courage AFTER you do it, not before you do it." - Three Kings a truly awesome move

"grabbing what you can get isn’t any less wicked when you grab it with the power of your brains than with the power of your fists"


"I am considered a misanthropist now and then, because I do not socialize with many people. But it’s only my mind that avoids you, my heart is still with you, and seeks the distance so that it can keep on loving you."


This is something my friends all say about me, it is more helpful than you'd think:

An old line I used to throw around now and again, and I'm starting to get re-adjusted to: "If you're not laughing at yourself, you're obviously not very funny!"

Works well for someone who, like me, spends a lot of time and energy on being funny.

I was in Seattle over thanksgiving, and a friend was complaining about the new trend of "bikini baristas" in coffee shops. This gave birth to my phrase, "Hiding razor blades in the eye candy", usually used to refer to slightly immoral shows of boob, ranging from the publicly broadcasted Victoria's Secret Fashion Show to the availablility of porn to minors via the Internet.

I very much hope it catches on.

Oh come on. Don't even try to attribute that to one of your friends. Everyone says that. It's practically a meme. It is a meme. You type in "almost only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades" on google and you get almost 11,000 results. 11 thousand!

EDIT: In retrospect, that sounds a bit harsher than I intended. My point was that it's a common phrase (well, at least among our subculture).

"[Person/Object/Situation] is gay as fruit loops!" May be a theory on a character, or complaining about a bad situation. From me, though I may have picked it up from somewhere lese.

Hmm, not really a quote, but my friends and I always throw around "You should write a book about <action>, because you're so goddamn good at it." It started with "You should write a book about being an asshole, because you're so goddamn good at it."

Most of my personal quotes come from webcomics, or more traditional comics. The ones I can remember now of using the most and following as much as possible are:

'When you gonna do something wrong, you gotta do it right." - My sig
"I only live here." - Calvin's father, from Calvin and Hobbes
"See.... I'm a nerd" - myself, whenever someone question any of my attitudes
"When you gotta do something wrong, you gotta do it right." - Fighter - 8-bit Theatre
"Life is a bitch. But it is my bitch." - Slick - Sinfest
