      "We think too much and feel too little. More than machinery we need humanity. More than cleverness we need kindness and gentleness. Without these qualities, life will be violent and all will be lost"

      "you the people have the power to make this life free and beautiful!!, to make this life a wonderful adventure!"

      Charlie Chaplin - the Great Dictator

      “Every time you are tempted to react in the same old way, ask if you want to be a prisoner of the past or a pioneer of the future.”
      ― Deepak Chopra

      “Walk as if you are kissing the Earth with your feet.”
      ― ThÝch Nhất Hạnh, Peace Is Every Step: The Path of Mindfulness in Everyday Life

      “The deepest secret is that life is not a process of discovery, but a process of creation. You are not discovering yourself, but creating yourself anew. Seek therefore, not to find out Who You Are, but seek to determine Who You Want to Be.”
      ― Neale Donald Walsch

      “Often we take personally the slings and arrows of our 'abusers'. But frequently we are merely the interchangeable pawns of their own neurotic dramas. Anyone else in your position would have received the same treatment. There is nothing especially noxious or negatively noteworthy about you.”
      ― Brian L. Weiss, Messages from the Masters: Tapping Into the Power of Love

      "That's all you need in life, a little place for your stuff. That's all your house is- a place to keep your stuff. If you didn't have so much stuff, you wouldn't need a house. . . A house is just a pile of stuff with a cover on it. You can see that when you're taking off in an airplane. You look down; you see everybody's got a little pile of stuff." - George Carlin

      "There's just enough bullshit to hold things together in this country. Bullshit is the glue that binds us as a nation. . . All men are equal. Justice is blind. The press is free. Your vote counts. Business is honest. The good guys win. The police are on your side. God is watching you. Your standard of living will never decline, and everything is gonna be just fine. The official, national bullshit story." - George Carlin

      Of course, I've always liked everything Carlin said since I first read one of his books, so here's a more recent quote I enjoyed from Jimquisition-

      "Games are no longer games. They're territories, carved up and handed over to individual warlords: Gamestop, Amazon, Steam, and whatever proprietary digital service the publisher decided to pull out its own arse. They're all served long before the customer is." - Jim Sterling

      Stand upright, speak thy thoughts, declare The truth thou hast, that all may share; Be bold, proclaim it everywhere: They only live who dare. Voltaire

      Let us go forth, the tellers of tales, and seize whatever prey the heart long for, and have no fear. Everything exists, everything is true, and the earth is only a little dust under our feet. William Butler Yeats

      Don't believe everything you think. ?

      Whenever you think or you believe or you know, you’re a lot of other people: but the moment you feel, you’re nobody-but-yourself. e.e. cummings

      Wouldn't the sentence, 'I want to put a hyphen between the words Fish and And and And and Chips in my Fish-And-Chips sign' have been clearer if quotation marks had been placed before Fish, and between Fish and and, and and and And, and And and and, and and and And, and And and and, and and and Chips, as well as after Chips?"

      So many great quotes to choose from...
      Here's one that might resonate with a lot of people on DV:

      Admit it. You aren't like them. You're not even close. You may occasionally dress yourself up as one of them, watch the same mindless television shows as they do, maybe even eat the same fast food sometimes. But it seems that the more you try to fit in, the more you feel like an outsider, watching the "normal people" as they go about their automatic existences. For every time you say club passwords like "Have a nice day" and "Weather's awful today, eh?", you yearn inside to say forbidden things like "Tell me something that makes you cry" or "What do you think deja vu is for?". Face it, you even want to talk to that girl in the elevator. But what if that girl in the elevator (and the balding man who walks past your cubicle at work) are thinking the same thing? Who knows what you might learn from taking a chance on conversation with a stranger? Everyone carries a piece of the puzzle. Nobody comes into your life by mere coincidence. Trust your instincts. Do the unexpected. Find the others...

      Heh, I just remembered this quote:

      "There are two things that are infinite: The universe and human stupidity. And I am not sure about the former." ~Albert Einstein

      This one is funny because it's true.
      Be free from passion, unmoved by joy or grief,
      and submit without complaint to unavoidable necessity.
      That is the way of the Stoics.

      "Consider the fact that for 3.8 billion years, a period of time older than the Earth's mountains and rivers and oceans, every one of your forebears on both sides has been attractive enough to find a mate, healthy enough to reproduce, and sufficiently blessed by fate and circumstances to live long enough to do so. Not one of your pertinent ancestors was squashed, devoured, drowned, starved, stranded, stuck fast, untimely wounded, or otherwise deflected from its life's quest of delivering a tiny charge of genetic material to the right partner at the right moment in order to perpetuate the only possible sequence of hereditary combinations that could result -- eventually, astoundingly, and all too briefly -- in you."

      Luckily or not I've never done any acid, but that's anyway one of my favorite quotes:

      ôToday a young man on acid realized that all matter is merely energy condensed to a slow vibration, that we are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively, there is no such thing as death, life is only a dream, and we are the imagination of ourselves. Heres Tom with the Weather.ö Bill Hicks
