"When a tree falls in a forest without anyone to watch it, a hipster buy his disc"
A quote from a friend of mine ^^
I love that C. S. Lewis Quote
Too bad I'll never find out who said this.
"The fact that others are bad does not imply that you are good."
“A room without books is like a body without a soul.”
― Marcus Tullius Cicero
"I decide to keep you all on your toes, but have any of my plans actually payed off? Without me you'd all be lazy and when someone serious comes along you'd all die and I'd actually have to do something with my power. So you see, I'm the greatest hero of you all."
“Listen to them. Children of the night. What music they make.” Dracula, 1931
"Yes I stabbed your <censored> but that doesn't make me a bad dude."-Seananners
Your quote reminded me of The Phantom of the Opera
I actually have Dracula. Need to finish it though...
The one in my sig, by Max Planck.
The full, more specific version "A new scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light, but rather because its opponents eventually die, and a new generation grows up that is familiar with it."
"Truth is like a saber that people dull to fit them"
"The pen is mightier than the sword. Yet actions speak louder than words. All we can agree on is that the pen isn't mightier than all swords and that you should bring a gunsword."
Hermann Göring: Why, of course, the people don't want war. Why would some poor slob on a farm want to risk his life in a war when the best that he can get out of it is to come back to his farm in one piece? Naturally, the common people don't want war; neither in Russia nor in England nor in America, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But, after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy or a fascist dictatorship or a Parliament or a Communist dictatorship.
Gilbert: There is one difference. In a democracy, the people have some say in the matter through their elected representatives, and in the United States only Congress can declare wars.
Göring: Oh, that is all well and good, but, voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country.
More of a debate than a singular quote. Irony aside, it's likely one of the most true quotes you will ever come across, and uttered by one of histories most infamous men. Hence why I find it so relevant.
“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime.” -Mark Twain
"Use what talents you possess; the woods would be very silent if no birds sang there except those that sang best." (google tells me it was said by Henry Van Dyke)
“Keep moving forward” ~Monty Oum
This is a good one.
"Goodnight, sweet prince."- Horatio, Shakespeare's 'Hamlet'
