Two of my favourite quotes:

"The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter."
-- Mark Twain.

Not that I had something to say against democracy, but this quote just hits the point. You could really lose your faith in people if you'd ask them why they vote for whom sometimes.
I'd have a whole bunch of other Mark Twain quotes but I think, I'll just leave it like it is.

"I love deadlines! I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by."
-- Douglas Adams

I just looove this quote. :D

Shakleton- that guy in your avatar looks way too much like Richard Dean Anderson. I've seen a few of your posts and thought, "Oh, an SG1 fan." or, "Oh, a MacGyver fan."

A few quotes I wish I could live up to:

"A designer knows he has achieved perfection not when there is nothing left to add, but when there is nothing left to take away."
-Antoine de Saint-Exupry

"When I get a little money, I buy books; and if any is left, I buy food and clothes."
-Desiderius Erasmus

And few I just like:

"A logician trying to explain logic to a programmer is like a cat trying to explain to a fish what it’s like to get wet."

"Prediction is very difficult, especially about the future."
-Niels Bohr

"Imagine, if you will, that there were no hypothetical situations"

A few of my favorites. Shit i wanted to be productive today, now im gonna be looking through quote websites.

Those who believe in telekinetics, raise my hand
Kurt Vonnegut (1922 - 2007)

Pain is inevitable; suffering is optional.
Unknown

One thing is clear to me. You can't know everything you'd like to know. You can't do everything you'd like to do. You can't read everything you'd like to read. You must hold onto some things and let go of others. Learning to make that choice is one of the big lessons of this life.
Real Live Preacher, Real Live Preacher.com weblog, September 9, 2003

Stoop and you'll be stepped on; stand tall and you'll be shot at.
Carlos A. Urbizo

The question should be, is it worth trying to do, not can it be done.
Allard Lowenstein, O Magazine, September 2002

You live and learn. At any rate, you live.
Douglas Adams (1952 - 2001)

It is a mistake to think you can solve any major problems just with potatoes.
Douglas Adams (1952 - 2001)

I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.
Douglas Adams (1952 - 2001)

He attacked everything in life with a mix of extraordinary genius and naive incompetence, and it was often difficult to tell which was which.
Douglas Adams (1952 - 2001)
"I just want to say before I do this that I have no idea what I'm doing and I love you all very dearly. Ok lets light this bitch and hope for the best"

Never judge a book by its movies.

The first is one of my favorite quotes as well; that is such a marvelous film.

-Ferris Bueller's Day Off
"Genocide is one of the most exhausting physical activities there is, besides soccer"
-Dogma
What's bizarre? We're all pretty bizarre sometimes. Some of us are just better at hiding it. That's all"
-The Breakfast Club
"It's called a sense of humor. Your should get one. They're nice"
-Pretty in Pink
"There's a fine line between stupid and clever"
-This is Spinal Tap

"Poets say science takes away from the beauty of the stars — mere globs of gas atoms. Nothing is "mere". I too can see the stars on a desert night, and feel them. But do I see less or more? The vastness of the heavens stretches my imagination — stuck on this carousel my little eye can catch one-million-year-old light. A vast pattern — of which I am a part... What is the pattern or the meaning or the why? It does not do harm to the mystery to know a little more about it. For far more marvelous is the truth than any artists of the past imagined it. Why do the poets of the present not speak of it? What men are poets who can speak of Jupiter if he were a man, but if he is an immense spinning sphere of methane and ammonia must be silent?"

What's your Personal Secret to Life?

Postby dA ShAzAm » Fri Feb 06, 2009 5:04 am UTC

I've always enjoyed those little "words to live by" that people put up everywhere...

...the poetic thoughts...
“Your sacred space is where you find yourself again and again.”—Joseph Campbell
“What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.”—Oliver Wendell Holmes

...the religious sayings...
“Be the change that you want to see in the world.”—Mohandos Gandhi
“Take the first step in faith. You don't have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.”—Martin Luther King

..the artistic insights...
“Every age can be enchanting, provided you live within it.”—Brigitte Bardot
“It is not in the stars to hold our destiny but in ourselves.”—William Shakespeare

...and the words that will stay with you forever...
"Well let me just quote the late-great Colonel Sanders, who said..."I'm too drunk to taste this chicken.""-Will Farell
"Look, you stupid bastard. You've got no arms left."-Graham Chapman
"Rarely is the questioned asked: Is our children learning?"-George W. Bush

Now I'm constantly trying to make up meaningful phrases. The best I think the best I've made so far was "Focus on your future, remember your past, and appreciate what's present".

I thirst for more knowledge and wisdom!
What are the words that you all live by?
~Solomon Hercules Atlas Zeus Achilles Mercury~
"When he types the name of the ancient wizard, he is magically transformed from a man into an idea--societies most doughty design!"

Queen Victoria generally has some good quotes.

"We are not interested in the polssibilities of defeat. They do not exist."

"The important thing is not what they think of me, but what I think of them."

“I would venture to warn against too great intimacy with artists as it is very seductive and a little dangerous.”
"A ship is safe in harbor, but that's not what ships are for."

Well, most of the words I live by are my own creations.
I call them Colinisms. I THINK they are all for the most part original, but i have a memory defect where I remember far more then I can efficiently catalog, so I always fear that bits and pieces of things I've heard elsewhere ooze through my creative processes. Here are a few, anyway...

It is far better to fail in valour then to succeed in meaninglessness.

If you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen. Don't sue the chef.

Many who read books of the great thoughts of great men do so simply because they have none of their own.

I'm not worried about the future, but I do wish it would hurry up.

If you can't be thankful for what something is, be thankful for what it isn't.

Love is like living in a garden of roses.
Its a beautiful thing, but you have to tread carefully.

Sometimes I think that the only thing standing between me and
greatness is sanity.

all Stephen King:

God is cruel. Sometimes he makes you live.

The most important things are the hardest things to say. They are the things you get ashamed of because words diminish your feelings - words shrink things that seem timeless when they are in your head to no more than living size when they are brought out.

Chud, this Chud, stand, be brave, be true, stand for your brother, your friends: believe, believe in all the things you have believed in... believe that courage is possible and words will come smoothly every time; no more losers... believe in yourself, believe in the heat of that desire.
