  • Famous and Favorite Quotes!

    What quotes strike your fancy? Which words of wisdom hold tight in your memory?

    "Oh, how I love the Earth and everything in it, life and death. And men. One can think of nothing finer, or nicer, than men their wars, their concentration camps, their justice."
    -- Marcel Ayme

    "It is the customary fate of new truths to begin as heresies and to end as superstitions."
    -- Aldous Leonard Huxley

    Re: Famous and Favorite Quotes!

    I have always been a fan of Carl Sagan's Pale Blue Dot. A little more than just a quote, and it sort of needs the picture too, I'll link it

    http://gtrc911.quaker.org/pale_blue_dot.html

    "Our posturings, our imagined self-importance, the delusion that we have some privileged position in the Universe, are challenged by this point of pale light."

      All three quotes from Friedrich Nietzsche:

      "He who fights with monsters might take care lest he thereby become a monster. And if you gaze for long into an abyss, the abyss gazes also into you."

      "The Christian resolution to find the world ugly and bad has made the world ugly and bad."

      "The advantage of a bad memory is that one enjoys several times the same good things for the first time."

            All the great things are simple, and many can be expressed in a single word: freedom, justice, honor, duty, mercy, hope.

            When I look back on all these worries, I remember the story of the old man who said on his deathbed that he had had a lot of trouble in his life, most of which had never happened.

            All by Winston Churchill

            And my favorite is below.
            "Yes Ma'am, I am drunk, but in the morning I will be sober and you will still be ugly."
            -Winston Churchill
