No, it's Vinny Jones in Snatch as Bullet Tooth Tony. 

Ah Bullet tooth tony of course! Love that flim.

Yes, since you corrected me I checked Team America - drunk man in bar scene:

"See, there are three kinds of people: dicks, pussies and assholes. Pussies think everyone can get along and dicks just want to fuck all the time without thinking it through. But then you got your assholes. And all the assholes want is to shit all over everything. So pussies may get mad at dicks once in a while because, pussies get fucked by dicks. But dicks also fuck assholes! And if they didn't fuck the assholes, you know what you'd get? You'd get your dick and your pussy all covered in shit!"

Very rude ... you have to see it,... it was funny at the time....

Mate, you've solved the mystery! I thought this was in the big lebowski and was the cowboy to the dude. I love that quote! Nice one for finding that because if you didn't, I'd have done it eventually 😂

“Come to the edge," he said.
"We can't, we're afraid!" they responded.
"Come to the edge," he said.
"We can't, We will fall!" they responded.
"Come to the edge," he said.
And so they came.
And he pushed them.
And they flew.”

As the tide rises, so does the boat.

 

Warren Buffett: “It’s only when the tide goes out that you discover who’s been swimming naked."

It means invest in good companies. swimming naked means you invested in bad companies and you lose all the money.

Yes, that's a great quote too.

 Noam Chomsky

 

“The smart way to keep people passive and obedient is to strictly limit the spectrum of acceptable opinion, but allow very lively debate within that spectrum — even encourage the more critical and dissident views. That gives people the sense that there's free thinking going on, while all the time the presuppositions of the system are being reinforced by the limits put on the range of the debate.”

John Kiriakou, who exposed the illegal CIA torture programmes ...


“The torturers are free, the people who conceived of the torture are free. The attorneys who justified the torture are free. I’m the only one in prison, and I’m the one who refused to torture anybody. ” - John Kiriakou, 2014

“Something hit me very hard once, thinking about what one little man could do.

 

Think of the Queen Mary - the whole ship goes by and then comes the rudder. And there’s a tiny thing at the edge of the rudder called a Trim Tab. It’s a miniature rudder. Just moving the little Trim Tab builds a low pressure that pulls the rudder around. Takes almost no effort at all.

 

So I said that the little individual can be a Trim Tab. Society thinks it’s going right by you, that it’s left you altogether. But if you’re doing dynamic things mentally, the fact is that you can just put your foot out like that and the whole big ship of state is going to go. So I said, call me Trim Tab. ” - R. Buckminster Fuller, Feb 1972
