Your favorite quote.
« on: June 30, 2014, 10:29:27 PM »
I have been collecting quotes and sayings since I was 15.  I currently have a book which is 169 pages and I just added number 1847 the other day.

So I was wondering if anyone wanted to share any of their favorites with me. I would love to add to my book. :)

Here's a few of my newest ones.

I would be unstoppable if it was not for law enforcement and physics.

I don't want you to save me. I want you to stand by me as I save myself

We are a little weird and life's a little weird and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours we join up with them and fall into mutual weirdness and call it love.

Most quotes I care about are political in nature, so this is likely not the best place for them. But if I have to point to a favourite, it's in my signature.

I have a few that really resonate with me.

Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself.
Leo Tolstoy


I sit on a man's back, choking him and making him carry me, and yet assure myself and others that I am very sorry for him and wish to ease his lot by all possible means - except by getting off his back.
Leo Tolstoy


It is amazing how complete is the delusion that beauty is goodness.
Leo Tolstoy


Freedom is the right to tell people what they do not want to hear.
George Orwell


If you want a vision of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face - forever.
George Orwell


Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past.
George Orwell


So much of left-wing thought is a kind of playing with fire by people who don't even know that fire is hot.
George Orwell


“The Fascists of the future will be the anti-fascists.” Winston Churchill.

My manner of thinking, so you say, cannot be approved. Do you suppose I care? A poor fool indeed is he who adopts a manner of thinking for others!
~Marquis de Sade

Happiness lies neither in vice nor in virtue; but in the manner we appreciate the one and the other, and the choice we make pursuant to our individual organization.
~Marquis de Sade

Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned.
~Buddha

No one saves us but ourselves. No one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path.
~Buddha

We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts, we make the world.
~Buddha

I have two.  One is an old Spanish proverb.  "Living well is the best revenge."  The other is by Ivana Trump who was wonderful with the pithy comeback.  "Don't get mad.  Get everything!"

However, this one from the OP really resonates with me.
I don't want you to save me. I want you to stand by me as I save myself
All to often people try to fight a fight that isn't theirs and fail miserably.

Norse sayings are kind of an obsession of mine. May not be that many, but they can be wise, such as:

The foolish man thinks he will live forever if he keeps away from fighting; but old age won't grant him a truce, even if the spears do.

Quotes are such a lovely thing to collect.

Some of my favorites are from Erica Jong -

"You take your life in your own hands, and what happens? A terrible thing: no one to blame."

"Everyone has talent. What is rare is the courage to follow the talent to the dark place where it leads."
