“Chief among our gains must be reckoned this possibility of choice, the recognition of many possible ways of life, where other civilizations give a satisfactory outlet to only one temperamental type, be he mystic or soldier, businessman or artist, a civilization in which there are many standards offers a possibility of satisfactory adjustment to individuals of many different temperamental types, of diverse gifts, and varying interests.”

T.I. to a new recruit who on the first day of Basic was sporting long freshly permed wavy blond locks.

TI: "That's some real purty hair ya got there son. You just get that permed?"
Kid stammers: "Y, y, yes, Sir."
TI, leaning in to tap edge of hat on kids forehead, screams: "Now son, can you tell me why the $&#* did you do something that $&#*ing stupid knowing it was going to get cut off today?!?"
Kid says second dumbest thing he could have: "It was a good deal, sir."

-TSgt Henry B. Hines, and Goldielocks, as the kid was nicknamed the rest of basic.


The rest of us got a real chewing for breaking ranks with our laughing, but it was worth it to see the T.I. almost break his 'training face'.:D

"What a unique device, the human tush. An architectural marvel, one of a kind... actually two of a kind. Designed to support our weight for a lifetime of sitting, it also has the subtlety to do the samba. And when attached to certain members of the female species at a time when light summer dresses are worn can cause some of us to drive our cars straight up a lamp post."

I'd like to share a revelation that I've had during my time here. It came to me when I tried to classify your species. I realized that you're not actually mammals. Every mammal on this planet instinctively develops a natural equilibrium with the surrounding environment, but you humans do not. You move to an area, and you multiply, and multiply, until every natural resource is consumed. The only way you can survive is to spread to another area. There is another organism on this planet that follows the same pattern. A virus. Human beings are a disease, a cancer of this planet, you are a plague, and we are the cure. -Agent Smith

"I'm breaking my attachment to physical power and possessions," Tyler whispered, "because only through destroying myself can I discover the greater power of my spirit."

"The liberator who destroys my property," Tyler said, "is fighting to save my spirit. The teacher who clears all possessions from my path will set me free."

"What's it say, already?"
Tyler looks at Leslie and says, without even picking up the note, "I have passed an amount of urine into at least one of your many elegant fragrances."

Albert smiles. "You ****ed in her perfume?"

"No," Tyler says, "but she doesn't know that."


"We are the middle children of history, raised by television to believe that someday we'll be millionaires and movie stars and rock stars, but we won't. And we're just learning this fact. So don't f**k with us."

I've got quotes I love from two authors, both of which, I believe, are geniuses. :3


Voltaire:

"I have lived eighty years of life and know nothing for it, but to be resigned and tell myself that flies are born to be eaten by spiders and man to be devoured by sorrow."

"Ice-cream is exquisite - what a pity it isn't illegal."

"Life is thickly sown with thorns, and I know no other remedy than to pass quickly through them. The longer we dwell on our misfortunes, the greater is their power to harm us."

"Stand upright, speak thy thoughts, declare;
The truth thou hast, that all may share;
Be bold, proclaim it everywhere:
They only live who dare."

And my personal favorite from him: "I do not agree with what you have to say, but I'll defend to the death your right to say it."



Vonnegut, now:

"I want to stay as close to the edge as I can without going over. Out on the edge you see all kinds of things you can't see from the center."

"One of the few good things about modern times: If you die horribly on television, you will not have died in vain. You will have entertained us."
"Cold Turkey", In These Times, May 10, 2004

"Here is a lesson in creative writing. First rule: Do not use semicolons. They are transvestite hermaphrodites representing absolutely nothing. All they do is show you've been to college."
A Man without a Country

"1492. As children we were taught to memorize this year with pride and joy as the year people began living full and imaginative lives on the continent of North America. Actually, people had been living full and imaginative lives on the continent of North America for hundreds of years before that. 1492 was simply the year sea pirates began to rob, cheat, and kill them."
Breakfast of Champions

"How nice--to feel nothing, and still get full credit for being alive."
Slaughterhouse Five

"Like so many Americans, she was trying to construct a life that made sense from things she found in gift shops."
Slaughterhouse Five

And my personal favorite from Vonnegut: "All time is all time. It does not change. It does not lend itself to warnings or explanations. It simply is. Take it moment by moment, and you will find that we are all, as I've said before, bugs in amber."
Slaughterhouse Five

And we should consider every day lost on which we have not danced at least once. And we should call every truth false which was not accompanied by at least one laugh.

Perhaps I know best why it is man alone who laughs; he alone suffers so deeply that he had to invent laughter.

So, I kinda had to edit that so you could read it... just replace the italics with more vulgar synonyms.


"Guy in Bar:
See, there's three kinds of people: wieners, kitties, and bum-bums.
Kitties think everyone can get along, and wieners just want to fornicate all the time without thinking it through.
But then you got your bum-bums, Chuck. And all the bum-bums want us to poo-poo all over everything!
So, kitties may get mad at wieners once in a while, because kitties get fornicated by wieners.
But wieners also fornicate bum-bums, Chuck.
And if they didn't fornicate the bum-bums, you know what you'd get?
You'd get your wiener and your kittie all covered in poo-poo!"

In light of what recently occured, the sentiment it reached, but the understanding we found I want to share some quotes from a personal hero of mine, Steve Prefontaine (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steve_Prefontaine) (1951-1975).

"To give anything less than your best is to sacrifice the gift."

"A lot of people run a race to see who is fastest. I run to see who has the most guts, who can punish himself into exhausting pace, and then at the end, punish himself even more."

"The only good race pace is suicide pace, and today looks like a good day to die.

"Some people create with words or with music or with a brush and paints. I like to make something beautiful when I run. I like to make people stop and say, 'I've never seen anyone run like that before.' It's more than just a race, it's a style. It's doing something better than anyone else. It's being creative."

"You have to wonder at times what you're doing out there. Over the years, I've given myself a thousand reasons to keep running, but it always comes back to where it started. It comes down to self-satisfaction and a sense of achievement. " [Some deny it if they wish, but there is some truth there. I know thats the reason I host events]

The road to quality has no end. So technically, it's more of a death march.

To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children;

To earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends;

To appreciate beauty, to find the best in others;

To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition;

To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived.

This is to have succeeded.

A common mistake people make when trying to design something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools.

There is a theory which states that if anyone discovers just exactly what the universe is for and why we are here, that it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable.
There is another theory which states that this has already happened.

That was one of my favorites DoctorWhoFan! I nearly choked on my jelly baby when I first heard him say that.

See my sig for the best one though...

THe butler one is from the same episode.

ahh...Tom Baker.

Here's another:

Rose: "How come you sound like you are from the North?"

The Doctor: "Lots of planets have a North!"

-or-

"HERE COME THE DRUMS!"

-the Master

-or-

ROSE: "DOesn't the Universe implode or something, if THe Doctor Dances?"

-or-

"It's bigger on the inside than on the outside"

Slight nitpick, it was actually Harriet Jones who asked about the northern accent, and then Rose said "Lots of planets have a north."

One of my favorites was in the episode "Dalek" (9th Doctor) where he is telling the scientist in Utah that he knows nothing about alien technology.

Scientist: "And you claim greater knowledge?"

Doctor: "I don't need to make claims, I know how good I am."

In correct, THe first Episode "Rose" rose asked him that. When Harriet Jones assked again, it was a flashback to that conversation with Rose. THey were on the bridge.

Because I'm bored trying to get my homework done, and because I have the Analects and my Buddhist proverb book open in front of me;

"Tzu Kung asked about government:

The Master said, 'Enough food, enough weapons, and the confidence of the people.

Tzu Kung said, 'Suppose you had no alternative but to give up one of the three, which would you let go first?'

The Master said, 'Weapons.'

Tzu Kung said, "What if you had to give up one of the remaining two, which would it be?'

The master said, 'Food. From ancient times, death has come to all men, but a people without confidence in it's rulers will not stand."
