Post random quotes you like.
Doesn't matter where it's from or if you know who originally said it. I'll start:

"People are always creeping towards death. so don't you think that we should celebrate our life as much as we can? But no matter what they do, the fact that they'll eventually die doesn't change. In the end, everyone dies…just like machines and other things. But they struggle through their lives. What would they be fine with leaving behind? The proof that they were here? But why would anyone want to leave behind that sort of thing? Isn't that just for self-satisfaction?"

Something interesting to note is this was said by an android.

"Whether you think you can or you don't, you're right."

Waaaaaay too many to choose from, so I will probably post in this thread sometime again when I think of others I really like the post.

"We are going to become Gods, period. {Through advancing technology.} If you don’t like it, get off. You don’t have to contribute, you don’t have to participate, but if you are going to interfere with me becoming a God, you’re going to have trouble. There’ll be warfare." -Richard Seed- TechnoCalyps – Part II – Preparing for the Singularity (2008-11-14)

He was pushing to try and clone himself before human cloning was made illegal and even work on human genetic engineering, doing this through a fertility clinic that him and his brother owned. He's basically a super villain, not only is his motive and approach behind it very super villainy, and his last name "Seed" even lines up perfectly with what he's trying to do, he also looks like a Bond villain. He is dead now and his attempts to clone himself all failed… Or so they say… I believe the clone of Richard Seed is out there somewhere.

Here are some of my favorites from books and tv shows and stuff, but my favorite quotes often come from the people I've met in life. Those are usually the ones that stick with me the most.

"I'd rather have bad times with you, than good times with someone else/ I'd rather be beside you in a storm than safe and warm by myself. I'd rather have hard times together, than to have it easy apart. I'd rather have the one who holds my heart."

"We need to find our own inspiration. Sometimes, it's not easy."

"I've decided to make myself strong. As far as I can tell, that's all I can do."

"I finally get a bouquet and it's a goodbye present. That's depressing."

"Okay, so he doesn't like me like me. But he does like me. And that means I'm halfway there."

"'Why do you always have to look on the bright side?'

'Somebody has to.'"

"Holding this soft, small living creature in my lap this way, though, and seeing how it slept with complete trust in me, I felt a warm rush in my chest. I put my hand on the cat's chest and felt his heart beating. The pulse was faint and fast, but his heart, like mine, was ticking off the time allotted to his small body with all the restless earnestness of my own."

Quote from Lord of the Rings:"Not all those who wander are lost."

Disney movie Treasure Planet: "You got the makings of greatness in you, but you gotta take the helm and chart your own course! Stick to it, no matter the squalls! And when the time comes, you'll get the chance to really test the cut of your sails and show what you're made of! And… well, I hope I'm there, catching some of the light coming off you that day."

Rpg horror game, Spectrum: "But what if you suddenly stopped feeling at home in your own head?"

"Then the angel carried me away in the Spirit into a wilderness. There I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast that was covered with blasphemous names and had seven heads and ten horns."
-Revelation 17:3

CIRNOGET and my quote


ZUN was a mistake.


It doesn't matter if your chains are made of silver or gold.
If you don't want to free yourself, they could also been made of paper.


Sometimes we have to soak ourselves in the tears and fears of the past to water our future gardens.

__Suzy Kassem__


The virtue of life IS struggle, though. It IS just as simple as leaving your mark, creating offspring to carry on your blood, tussling blindly and furiously with entropy and futility. To seek self-satisfaction and the gratification of the ego is a defining characteristic of intelligent life, and it isn't a bad thing.

This reminds me of why I thought the ending of Texhnolyze was such a letdown.


And now so as not to derail it too much, have a very, very /n/ quote:
“The worst part is wondering how you’ll find the strength tomorrow
to go on doing what you did today and have been doing for much
too long, where you’ll find the strength for all that stupid running around, those projects that come to nothing, those attempts to escape from crushing necessity, which always founder and serve only to convince you one more time that destiny is implacable, that every night will find you down and out, crushed by the dread of more and more sordid and insecure tomorrows. And maybe it’s treacherous old age coming on, threatening the worst. Not much music left inside us for life to dance to. Our youth has gone to the ends of the earth to die in the silence of the truth. And where, I ask you, can a man escape to, when he hasn’t enough madness left inside him? The truth is an endless death agony. The truth is death. You have to choose: death or lies. I’ve never been able to kill myself.”

>tussling blindly and furiously with entropy and futility
Are you against measuring the way different matter states in a thermodynamic system try to reach equilibrium?
Why do you oppress mass? What did the second and third law of thermodynamics ever did to you? You… you heartless monster.


They killed all my ancestors.

If that's the case, why don't you fight the meter system and while we're at it the kelvin scale too? I'm pretty sure they've killed more people than entropy stating that water is liquid and iron is solid when the temperature is 25°C.

Gravity helped him, no evidence for a trial my ass.


On the one hand I kind of wish I used different wording because I think I have a valid point. Self-satisfaction and doing your best to spit in the face of futility is a totally valid reason for being and for wanting to leave something behind. It's actually a beautiful reason.

On the other hand it's fucking /ot/ and that made me laugh.

Kinetic force killed Lincoln y'know, physics is a bastard.
I mean fuck, there's such a thing as explosive decompression.
Explosive decompression!? Fucking nature is a terrorist.


"May the bridges we burn light the way"


These were my candidates for my senior quote. I picked the first one

"The most dangerous way to lose time is not to spend it having fun, but to spend it doing fake work" - Paul Graham

"The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown." – H. P. Lovecraft

"Time's Up. Let's do this." - Leeroy Jenkins

"Aut Viam Inveniam Aut Faciam" "I shall either find a way or make one"

"A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects." - Robert A. Heinlein

"Problems cannot be solved by the same level of thinking that created them." - Albert Einstein

"Ball so hard" - Austin Do

"The more you sweat in times of peace, the less you bleed in war."


Did you pick that one because of the meaning intended on the original essay or because of some other way of viewing it? Either way, nice pick.

The last one looks to be from a good novel. Never thought about that situation in such emotional lens.

"Every society gets the kind of criminal it deserves."


"Nobody makes a greater mistake than he who does nothing because he could only do a little."


"sometimes you gotta die first, before you start living" -Crackho

Here goes:

"Find what you love and let it kill you."

"Laugh, and the world laughs with you - weep, and you weep alone."

"Only fools engage in any sort of 'fair' combat."

"Time is a great teacher, but unfortunately it kills all of its pupils."

"There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, Than are dreamt of in your philosophy."

"He who has a why to live for can bear almost any how."
