“Oh sorry, I was taking life seriously.”
― Bill Hicks

“I'm tired of this back-slappin' "isn't humanity neat" bullshit. We're a virus with shoes.”
― Bill Hicks

“We think sometimes we're only drawn to the good, but we're actually drawn to the authentic. We like people who are real more than those who hide their true selves under layers of artificial niceties”
― Elisabeth Kübler-Ross, Life Lessons


“The reason I talk to myself is because I’m the only one whose answers I accept.”
― George Carlin

“We're so self-important. So arrogant. Everybody's going to save something now. Save the trees, save the bees, save the whales, save the snails. And the supreme arrogance? Save the planet! Are these people kidding? Save the planet? We don't even know how to take care of ourselves; we haven't learned how to care for one another. We're gonna save the fuckin' planet? . . . And, by the way, there's nothing wrong with the planet in the first place. The planet is fine. The people are fucked! Compared with the people, the planet is doin' great. It's been here over four billion years . . . The planet isn't goin' anywhere, folks. We are! We're goin' away. Pack your shit, we're goin' away. And we won't leave much of a trace. Thank God for that. Nothing left. Maybe a little Styrofoam. The planet will be here, and we'll be gone. Another failed mutation; another closed-end biological mistake.”
― George Carlin


(also the qoute in my signature)

aaaaaaaaand.......

“Meow” means “woof” in cat.”
― George Carlin

A few i can remember as of now. May add more later

What is essential is invisible to the eye

Every saint has a past, every sinner has a future

Love is an act of self sacrifice

Beauty is nothing when the brain is empty

When I'm weak then I'm strong

"One of the most basic factors in sports is that winning becomes a habit, and losing is the same way. When failure starts to feel normal in your life or your work or even your darkest vices, you won't have to go looking for trouble, because trouble will find you. Count on it." Hunter S Thompson


"I learned a long time ago that reality was much weirder than anyone's imagination." Hunter S. Thompson


"Good news is rare these days, and every glittering ounce of it should be cherished and hoarded and worshipped and fondled like a priceless diamond." Hunter S. Thompson

From the movie Local Hero:
Mac MacIntyre:

How do you do business with a man who has no door?

The ethics are just the same.

I totally blanked out when answering this thread last time. I have a few more quotes I've remembered to add.

"Creative work is not a selfish act or a bid for attention on the part of the actor. It's a gift to the world and every being in it." -Steven Pressfield

"The sweetest thing in all my life has been the longing — to reach the Mountain, to find the place where all the beauty came from — my country, the place where I ought to have been born.

"On our earth we can only love with suffering and through suffering. We cannot love otherwise." -Fyodor Dostoevsky

"To say to another: 'I love you', is to tell them: 'You will never die.' " -Kallistos Ware

FINALLY someone answers my thread!!!!!!! THANK YOU!!!!!!:laughing:
You're welcome. :happy:

 
And then at the bottom of the piece of paper, there's a note: "Hey, I've read a few posts of yours and I've got an invitation to extend. Come into the 'Flirt With An INFP' thread. You'll find me there, it's a great place for fun, games, food and drinks, great conversation and music. That is, if you're really as fearless as your name asserts you are. :wink:" (throws a smoke bomb on the ground and vanishes)
