Re: Favorite quotes

What's that you say? You want to OD on stupid quotes? You've come to the right place. [Yes, I like AFI.]

Jade Puget wrote:

Hmm, maybe instead of jumping off the drum riser you could just step carefully down off of it but make a crazy I'm-going-off-really-hard face while you're doing it so people think you're doing some insane stage move.

Jade Puget wrote:

Tell him to come check me out when I'm shredding some sweet finger tapping solos and then he'll be like, 'Power chords blah blah blah.' And I'll hit the whammy bar and it'll sound like a plane crashing at an air show and then he'll try to say some other stuff like, 'Blah blah blah yadda yadda yadda.' And that's when I fire up the wah-wah pedal and it'll be like 'Wokka wokka wokka wo-wokka wokka.' All up in his freakin' face.

Jade Puget wrote:

If I asked you to have sex with me, would the answer to this question be the same as the answer to the first question?

Jade Puget wrote:

Next time I come to Phoenix we are so going clubbing Chanelle No. 5. I'll wear my pink sleeveless see-through nipple shirt with the Pegasus and rainbow on it.

Maybe you should drop the whole "being in a band" thing and just go crazy while doing something else...you might find it easier to go crazy while working in a library or while you're waiting to see the dentist.

Adam Carson wrote:

Sorry man, I was on the phone with your girlfriend. Next time I'll wrap it up before we meet.

Adam Carson wrote:

I'd prefer 'fuck and smash the state', because when you put the two together, you get crazy violent sex.

Adam Carson wrote:

I once thought I was hilarious tossing room service trays off the twenty-fifth floor balcony of my hotel room until I realized that was just about the most tired and cliche "rock star" thing I could do. People in bands have been trashing hotel rooms for decades and if I really wanted to do something shocking I'd have to like make the bed before I left or something like that.

Adam Carson wrote:

I think if I am a celebrity I'm like a Z list celebrity, right below Rick Moranis...but definately above Harold Ramis.

And, the ultimate religious quote:

Davey: I don't believe in God, but I do believe in Gosh.
Adam: Yeah, Gosh, totally. He's like God only he's way more easy going.

Once you start putting them in quotes, you realize that there aren't as many single-person quotes as there are answering-a-question quotes.

Re: Favorite quotes

"It is not their love for men but the impotence of their love for men which hinders the Christians of today from - burning us."
-Friedrich Nietzsche

And one I heard while driving to work today:
"The Moth don't care when he sees The Flame.
He might get burned, but he's in the game.
And once he's in, he can't go back, he'll
Beat his wings 'til he burns them black...
No, The Moth don't care when he sees The Flame."

A cynic is a man who, when he smells flowers, looks around for a coffin.

There is something terribly morbid in the modern sympathy with pain. One should sympathize with the colour, the beauty, the joy of life. The less said about life's sores the better.
-Oscar Wilde

Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, it is not puffed up: does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
Love never fails. *

Re: Favorite quotes

This is one of my favorite quotes (Which I pulled from my facebook profile:

"Don't ask yourself what the world needs; ask yourself what makes you come alive. And then go and do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive."
~Howard Thurman

And then there's this long, long quote from Oscar Wilde...

"Selfishness is not living as one wishes to live, it is asking others to live as one wishes them to live. And unselfishness is letting other people's lives alone, not interfering with them. Selfishness always aims at creating around it an absolute uniformity of type. Unselfishness recognises infinite variety of type as a delightful thing, accepts it, acquiesces in it, enjoys it. It is not selfish to think for oneself. A man who does not think for himself does not think at all. It is grossly selfish to require of one's neighbour that he should think in the same way, and hold the same opinions. Why should he? If he can think, he will probably think differently. If he cannot think, it is monstrous to require thought of any kind from him."
~ Oscar Wilde

I wholeheartedly love them because they added to the fuel of my burning passion for life emot-smile

Re: Favorite quotes

I am matter...
I am antimatter...
I can see into the past...
I can see into the future...
I consume time...
And I will consume YOU!

Culex, from Super Mario RPG

I must not fear.
Fear is the mind-killer.
Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
I will face my fear.
I will permit to pass over me and through me.
And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
Where the fear has gone there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

Bene Gesserit "Litany Against Fear" (Dune novels)

And shepherds we shall be
For Thee, my Lord, for Thee
Power hath descended forth from Thy hand
That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy command.
So we shall flow a river forth to Thee
And teeming with souls shall it ever be
In nomine Patri, et Filii, et Spiritus Sancti

Boondock Saints -- The Family Prayer

It takes two to be friends
It takes two to fight
It takes two to make amends
Keep this in sight:
Teamwork takes two
To hold a secret, to apologise, to love;
One's not enough
There must be two.
To make a set of twins...
To discover what's within...
It takes two.

Dude, why Phoenix? Now I'm curious.

So many awesome quotes. I'll add a few that have been on my mind.

Paul McCartney wrote:

For well you know that its a fool who plays it cool
By making his world a little colder.

Hermann Hesse wrote:

Each of us has to find out for ourselves what is permitted and what is forbidden--forbidden for him. It's possible for one never to transgress a single law and still be a bastard. And vice versa. Actually, it's only a question of convenience. Those who are too lazy and comfortable to think for themselves and be their own judges obey the rules. Others sense their own laws within them; things are forbidden in them that every honorable man will do in any day of the year, and other things are allowed to them that are generally despised. Each person must stand on his own feet.

SO much love for Hermann Hesse.

Hermann Hesse wrote:

Wisdom is not communicable. The wisdom which a wise man tries to communicate always sounds foolish... Knowledge can be communicated, but not wisdom. One can find it, live it, do wonders through it, but one cannot communicate and teach it.

My dad's friend, probably paraphrased from somebody else wrote:

Fundamentalists desire two things: simplicity and certainty.

Kaji Ryouji wrote:

"You only think you understand. People cannot perfectly understand each other. They can't even understand themselves. Understanding a hundred percent of anything is impossible. So, people endeavour to attempt to learn about themselves and others. That's what makes life interesting."

I'm sure I'll think up more.

One of my favourite quotes from a favourite book. It is quoted by two of my favourite artists.
Adam Freeland's track "Mind Killer" and the variation (Fear) that is used in the final level of Rez: a videogame where sight and sound meet in sublime synathesia. Its exactly how I imagine taking The Spice would feel.

Trench Kamen wrote:

While I'm talking music that references fiction "Close to the Edge" by Yes relates the story of Hesse's Siddhartha in all its 18 minute glory, have a listen for a new angle on the work.


Nietzsche sums up the 'revolution' lesson in Utena and beyond... shells beyond adolescence.

Friedrich Nietzsche wrote:

Beyond Good and Evil

In their young years, people worship and despise still without that art of subtlety which constitutes the greatest gain in life. And it's reasonable enough that they must atone, with some difficulty, for having bombarded men and things in such a way with Yes and No. Everything is arranged so that the worst of all tastes, the taste for the absolute, will be terribly parodied and misused until people learn to put some art into their feelings and to enjoy risking an attempt with artificiality, as the real artists of life do.

The anger and reverence typical of the young do not seem to ease up until they have sufficiently distorted men and things so that they can vent themselves on them. Youth is in itself something fraudulent which deceives. Later, when the young soul, tortured by nothing but disappointments, finally turns back against itself suspiciously, still constantly hot and wild, even in its suspicion and pangs of conscience, how it rages against itself from this point on, how it tears itself apart impatiently, how it takes revenge for its lengthy self-deception, just as if it had been a voluntary blindness!

In this transition people punish themselves through their mistrust of their own feeling; they torment their enthusiasm with doubt; indeed, they already feel good conscience as a danger, as a veiling of the self, so to speak, and a growing exhaustion in their finer honesty. Above all, people take sides, basically the side against "the young." A decade later, they understand that all this was also still youth!

Re: Favorite quotes

Thanks, AbraXas.  I was looking for that quote earlier, but couldn't find it.  One or two of the forum folk were lacerating themselves in exactly the way he described, so I thought I might offer that as advice.  Reading it again though, it comes off as a bit harsh, and more than a little condescending.  So just in case any of our younger forum folk read this and it annoys them, remember, Nietzsche was mostly talking about himself.  It's pretty much true for everyone I suspect, but the hard edge of it comes from his own self-contempt.  I guess the important thing to take away from it is that attacking yourself and tearing yourself apart are normal behaviors for sensitive intelligent people of a certain age.  It doesn't really go away as you get older, but it gets easier to deal with.etc-love

Re: Favorite quotes

Nietzsche's advice exists in the realm of the extreme. I agree about it being harsh, but if you're plunging those depths too it can be sobering. I particularly like that passage because it requires you to future-think your current scenario, make sure you're not behaving in the manner that made you angry in the first place.

I like the version from the NIV a tad better, but same verse:
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

k, that's actually 4-7

As for Song of Solomon... the bible does Karma Sutra. Mmmm pleasant fruit: I can never look at a pomegranate in the same way.

Imagination is more important than knowledge.

And also my favorite Einstein story, even if it is pure fiction:

Einstein visited the physics lab at the University of Chicago.  While there, he asked a grad student what he was working on.  A bit flustered, the student explained the experiment to the esteemed scientist.  Nodding his head, Einstein made a suggestion that might make the experiment more workable.  The student, with some embarrassment, explained to Einstein why that couldn't possibly work.  Einstein shook his head sadly and acknowledged "None of my ideas are any good." emot-tongue

In case there was any doubt, "she" (Oholibah, the younger of two harlot sisters) is roundly condemned by the Lord for her lust, and he turns her paramours (the Assyrians and various others) against her.  It seems to be a metaphor about Jerusalem, but you'd have to ask God.

Who knew Assyrians were so hung, though?  Gonna make the Israelites jealous...
