“Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known.” 

 

“The nitrogen in our DNA, the calcium in our teeth, the iron in our blood, the carbon in our apple pies were made in the interiors of collapsing stars. We are made of starstuff.” 

 

“For me, it is far better to grasp the Universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring.” 

 

“In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion.” 

 

All of these, from the great mind of Carl Sagan. I love this man, he gave me a purpose, though I don't know the direction, and allowed me to see the beauty in this world.

"War, War never changes" - Fallout 3 narrator.

 

"..The good thing is that humanity still exists. The human race is stubborn like that" - The Overseer, Fallout 3.

 

I've always found these two quotes impressive for some reason. I don't know but there's just some kind of special meaning in them that I can't explain.

In actuality, war is one of the most rapidly changing concepts on the planet. Each advancement in metallurgy, combustion, aerodynamics leads to a new generation of warfare. It is a far cry now from 200,000 troops meeting in battle with spear and chariot. Case in point, drone warfare, covert operations. I can't think of anything that has changed as much as warfare has.  I think if Xerxes or Darius were here today they would agree with me.

I did this elsewhere today, but this thread needs it too;
 
“Six mistakes mankind keeps making century after century:
Believing that personal gain is made by crushing others;
Worrying about things that cannot be changed or corrected;
Insisting that a thing is impossible because we cannot accomplish it;
Refusing to set aside trivial preferences;
Neglecting development and refinement of the mind;
Attempting to compel others to believe and live as we do.”
Marcus Tullius Cicero

Here's just some of my favourite quotes from video games, movies, and books:
 
Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne:
 
- We are willing to suffer, to die for the things we care about. For love, for the right choices, because of her, I had solved the case. My case. All of it. Who I am. Is it worth it? Saying that it never is would be a lie. Sometimes you get lucky. Sometimes, something good comes out of it. Something you know you wouldn't deserve in a million years. Something that gives you a reason to go on.
 
- This is love. When someone drags you from the wreckage when you have given in, ready to just lie there and die. This is love. When someone, no matter what the cost, shows you there is hope, a choice, that you can put down your gun. This is love. Love hurts.
 
- The past is a puzzle, like a broken mirror. As you piece it together, you cut yourself, your image keeps shifting. And you change with it. It could destroy you, drive you mad. It could set you free.
 
The Majic Moostapholees (Bully):
 
- Don't blow out another's candle to make yours shine brighter.
 
- Forgive your enemies. It really annoys them.
 
- Stand up to be seen. Speak up to be heard. Shut up to be appreciated.
 
American Beauty:
 
- Today is the first day of the rest of your life.
 
- It's hard to stay mad when there's so much beauty in the world.
 
- It's a great thing when you realize you still have the ability to surprise yourself. Makes you wonder what else you can do that you've forgotten about.
 
The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy:
 
- So long, and thanks for all the fish.
 
- Once you do know what the question actually is, you'll know what the answer means.
 
- Life is paradoxically coincidental to the ironical tyranny applicable to the unparelleled definition of reverse entropy.
 
Jack Kerouac:
 
- The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars.
 
- I like too many things and get all confused and hung-up running from one falling star to another till i drop. This is the night, what it does to you. I had nothing to offer anybody except my own confusion.
 
- One day I will find the right words, and they will be simple.
 
Oscar Wilde:
 
- Man is least himself when he talks in his own person. Give him a mask, and he will tell you the truth.
 
- Yet each man kills the thing he loves,
by each let this be heard,
some do it with a bitter look,
some with a flattering word,
the coward does it with a kiss,
the brave man with a sword!
Some kill their love when they are young,
and some when they are old;
some strangle with the hands of Lust,
some with the hands of Gold:
the kindest use a knife, because
the dead so soon grow cold.
Some love too little, some too long,
some sell, and others buy;
some do the deed with many tears,
and some without a sigh:
for each man kills the thing he loves,
yet each man does not die.

Well when me and my girlfriend broke up (well actually before it happened, but I already knew it was gonna end up happening very soon, so I was bummed), my friend said something along the lines of "It's gonna hurt man, it's gonna hurt alot. Believe me I've had my heart broken. It will feel like creepy Alex (this creepy guy in our english class that we always joked about) twisting your balls, and he just keeps twisting them and twisting them. But if you guys don't last a long time, at least you had fun while you could. Don't worry, there's plenty of more b*tches to f*ck out there...You'll find them"

 

Not in those exact words, but close enough. It's kinda sh*tty advice, but at the time at least it made me laugh a bit   :lol:

Sure, I have many.

 

''Stuff a fool brags about, a smart man is ashamed of.''

 

''A dumb person remembers, a smart person writes it down.''

 

''We have less friends than we think and more friends than we know.''

 

''It is easier to be smart for others than for ourselves.''

 

''The most important thing in life is to be happy.''

 

''You miss 100% of the shots you don't take.''

 

''Don't make promises you can't keep.''

 

 

Every single word from these two videos:

 

 

 

 

I could literally go on and on. If I'd have to choose only one. It would be EC's speech.

"Wenn Fliegen hinter Fliegen fliegen, fliegen Fliegen Fliegen nach."

In the same word order: "When flies behind flies flies, flies flies flies after." or "When fly behind fly fly, fly fly fly after." Same word for flies and fly(ing).

Correctly translated: "When flies fly behind flies, flies are flying after flies."
