“They lie about marijuana. Tell you pot-smoking makes you unmotivated. Lie! When you're high, you can do everything you normally do just as well — you just realize that it's not worth the fucking effort. There's a difference.”
Bill Hicks
 
"Don't sweat the petty things and don't pet the sweaty things"
-- George Carlin
 
"Being on the edge isn’t as safe, but the view is better."
Ricky Gervais
 

“If you talk to the animals they will talk with you and you will know each other. If you do not talk to them you will not know them and what you do not know, you will fear. What one fears, one destroys.” – Chief Dan George, Tsleil-Waututh Nation, British Columbia, Canada

 
Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that.

“All morons hate it when you call them a moron.” 

 

“If you do something too good, then, after a while, if you don't watch it, you start showing off. And then you're not as good any more.” 

 

“even if you did go around saving guys' lives and all, how would you know if you did it because you really wanted to save guys' lives, or you did it because what you really wanted was everybody slapping you on the back and congratulating you.  How would you know you weren't being a phony? The trouble is you wouldn't.” 

 

“It's partly true, too, but it isn't all true. People always think something's all true.”

 

“If you sat around there long enough and heard all the phonies applauding and all, you got to hate everybody in the world, I swear you did.”

 

“People never think anything is anything really. I'm getting goddam sick of it.” 

 

“I mean most girls are so dumb and all.  After you neck them for awhile, you can really watch them losing their brains.  You take a girl when she really gets passionate, she just hasn’t any brains.“

 

“It’s funny.  All you have to do is say something nobody understands and they’ll do practically anything you want them to do.”

 

- Holden Caulfield

Oscar Wilde is a hero of mine mostly because of his wonderful quotes.

Here's some of my favourites:

 

“Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.”

 

“Some cause happiness wherever they go; others whenever they go.”

 

“All women become like their mothers. That is their tragedy. No man does, and that is his.”

 

“In this world there are only two tragedies. One is not getting what one wants, and the other is getting it.”

 

“Nothing that is worth knowing can be taught”

 

"Everybody has the face they deserve by the time they are 50"

Love most of George Orwell’s quotes, he was just so ahead of his time, so insightful, he just knew! A few of my favs..

 

“Four legs good, two legs bad“


”The most effective way to destroy people is to deny and obliterate their own understanding of their history”

 

”Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past”

 

”Power is tearing human minds to pieces and putting them together again in new shapes of your own choosing”

 

“A people that elect corrupt politicians, imposters, thieves and traitors are not victims, but accomplices”

 

Thank you George, you really tried to educate and warn us. Unfortunately most people are far more interested in Soaps, Love Island, football, the latest phone/TV/gadgets and taking photos of themselves a hundred times a day, to care what is actually happening to us, let alone fight it.

 Not forgetting his best one from 1984:

 

“If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face—for ever.”

An old Cherokee told his grandson:

 

"My son, there is battle between two wolves inside us all.

One is Evil. it is anger, jealousy, greed, resentment, inferiority, lies and ego

The other is Good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, humility, kindness, empathy and truth."

 

The boy thought about it and asked,

"Grandfather, which wolf wins?"

 

The old man replied,

"The one you feed"

“You are nothing but the body, and when the body dies you will die. Only once in a while does a person survive – one who has created soul in his life survives death – not all. A Buddha survives; a Jesus survives, but not you! You will simply die, not even a trace will be left.”

 

“You are not already a soul, but only an opportunity. You can use it, you can miss it.”

 

"A considerable percentage of the people we meet on the street are people who are empty inside, that is, they are actually already dead. It is fortunate for us that we do not see and do not know it. If we knew what a number of people are actually dead and what a number of these dead people govern our lives, we should go mad with horror."
