  12. So many good ones by Bill Hicks, he truely was a god among men :smoke:

    So here is a good one from a movie:

    Man, I see in fight club the strongest and smartest men who've ever lived. I see all this potential, and I see squandering. God damn it, an entire generation pumping gas, waiting tables; slaves with white collars. Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we don't need. We're the middle children of history, man. No purpose or place. We have no Great War. No Great Depression. Our Great War's a spiritual war... our Great Depression is our lives. We've all been raised on television to believe that one day we'd all be millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars. But we won't. And we're slowly learning that fact. And we're very, very pissed off.
  13. "Be mindful and present" - My teacher

  16. "The notion of the Absurd contains the idea that there is no meaning to be found in the world beyond what meaning we give to it. This meaninglessness also encompasses the amorality or "unfairness" of the world. This contrasts with "karmic" ways of thinking in which "bad things don't happen to good people"; to the world, metaphorically speaking, there is no such thing as a good person or a bad thing; what happens happens, and it may just as well happen to a "good" person as to a "bad" person." Absurdism
  17. "We are nothing but what we derive from the air we breathe…."
  18. "I know one thing, that I know nothing"
  19. “Light thinks it travels faster than anything but it is wrong. No matter how fast light travels, it finds the darkness has always got there first, and is waiting for it.”
    ― Terry Pratchett

    “Look at how a single candle can both defy and define the darkness.”
    ― Anne Frank
  20. "He who makes a beast out of himself gets rid of the pain of being a man"

    "Come take a trip with me, but don't be suprised when things aren't what they seem"

    I've got more but it'll have to wait till I listen to a little more music.
