I admit it, I am a fan of quotes :)

 

So just for the hell of it, I'm making a topic where you can posts quotes. Quotes of any kind. They can be thought-provoking, funny, serious, silly, stupid, political, non-political, from a world leader, from the hobo that lives in a cardboard box down your street. I really don't care.

 

Just whatever you feel is worth your time to type or copy and paste, feel free to do so. I just ask that you provide the person that said the quote, if you know that information.

 

Don't hesitate to participate. Participate many times if you want. And feel free to comment on the quotes given. I'll start with a couple...

 

"When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace." -Jimi Hendrix

 

"If it looks good, you'll see it. If it sounds good, you'll hear it. If it's marketed right, you'll buy it. But...if it's real, you'll FEEL it!" -Kid Rock

What should young people do with their lives today? Many things, obviously. But the most daring thing is to create stable communities in which the terrible disease of loneliness can be cured.

Kurt Vonnegut

 

I'm a quote nut as well so I just might be a bit piggish on this thread.

One of my favorite quotes ever:

"As I have said before, the ever more sophisticated weapons piling up in the arsenals of the wealthiest and the mightiest can kill the illiterate, the ill, the poor and the hungry, but they cannot kill ignorance, illness, poverty or hunger."

-Fidel Castro

The difference between a democracy and a dictatorship is that in a democracy you vote first and take orders later; in a dictatorship you don't have to waste your time voting.

I saw this on a T-Shirt recently, don't know who came up with it but it's snappy.

 

I support the right to arm Bears.

Haha. I could imagine that. A hunter goes out in the woods. He tracks a bear and starts to raise his gun. Suddenly the bear pulls out an AK and sticks it in the dude's face. "What now bitch?" :lol:

Hunting armed animals? Awesome reality show idea. I vote Ted Nugent goes first.

 

Everybody's worried about stopping terrorism. Well, there's a really easy way: stop participating in it.

Noam Chomsky

Perfect :)

Wait, are we talking about the animals or the Chicago football team? Cause the latter might not be such a good idea...
