Just seeing the 999 topics made me start this.
Anyway, here are some interesting quotes,
Or should I say some intersting, some stupid.

Discordian Quotes

--I like these--

"Outside of a dog, a book is a man's best friend.
Inside of a dog it's too dark to read."

"The rarity of genuine feeling in human society sometimes
makes me stop in the street to watch a dog gnawing a bone."

I know this post has generated serious, meaningful quotes, but I must include my all time favorite from the movie Airplane!:


Pilot: "Surely, you must be serious"

Doctor: "I am serious, and don't call me Shirley"

"Life's a bitch and she's back in heat."

"That's it man, game over man, game over, man! Game over!"

"I know I'm human. And if you were all these things, then you'd just attack me right now, so some of you are still human. This thing doesn't want to show itself, it wants to hide inside an imitation. It'll fight if it has to, but it's vulnerable out in the open. If it takes us over, then it has no more enemies, nobody left to kill it. And then it's won."

C.S. Lewis:

quote:
The greatest evil is not done in those sordid dens of evil that Dickens loved to paint but is conceived and ordered in clear, carpeted, warmed, well-lighted offices, by quiet men with white collars and cut fingernails and smooth-shaven cheeks who do not need to raise their voices.



Ghandi:

quote:
I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.



Fight Club/Chuck Palahniuk

quote:
This is your life, and it's ending one minute at a time.



Irvine Welsh"

[quote]
I don't think people do change that much. I think they just become more like themselves. They become more-of, or less-of, more torn down. If they're desperate, they become more-of, and if they've accepted their lot, they're not restless; they become more content, more at ease.[/wipyr]

A liberal is someone who feels a great debt to his
fellow man, which debt he proposes to pay off with
your money.
G. Gordon Liddy

A government which robs Peter to pay Paul can always
depend on the support of Paul.
George Bernard Shaw

Foreign aid might be defined as a transfer from poor
people in rich countries to rich people in poor
countries.
Douglas Casey

Giving money and power to government is like giving
whiskey and car keys to teenage boys.
P.J. O'Rourke

Government is the great fiction, through which
everybody endeavors to live at the expense of
everybody else.

If you think health care is expensive now, wait until
you see what it costs when it's free.
P.J. O'Rourke

No man's life, liberty, or property is safe while the
legislature is in session.
Mark Twain (1866)

Talk is cheap--except when Congress does it. The
government is like a baby's alimentary canal, with a
happy appetite at one end and no responsibility at the
other.
Ronald Reagan

The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing
of the blessings. The inherent blessing of socialism
is the equal sharing of misery.
Winston Churchill

The only difference between a tax man and a
taxidermist is that the taxidermist leaves the skin.

We contend that for a nation to try to tax itself into
prosperity is like a man standing in a bucket and
trying to lift himself up by the handle.
