      Favorite Quotations

      So what are they? I have a great many favorite quotations from a plethora of places; actors, poets, singers, business people, scientists, philosophers, spiritual figures, and then some.

      Who are some of your favorite people and their famous quotes? In what way have they inspired your life, if at all? Here are a few of mine:


      "Love begets love. This torment is my joy."
      --Theodore Roethke
      "I have always believed, and I still believe, that whatever good or bad fortune may come our way we can always give it meaning and transform it into something of value."
      --Hermann Hesse
      "It is better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles. Then the victory is yours. It cannot be taken from you, not by angels or by demons, heaven or hell."
      --Buddha
      "There is no need for temples, no need for complicated philosophies. My brain and my heart are my temples; my philosophy is kindness."
      --Dalai Lama
      "The only true wisdom is knowing that you know nothing."
      --Socrates
      "A year from now you will wish you had started today."
      --Karen Lamb
      "An investment in knowledge pays the best interest."
      --Benjamin Franklin
      "I can live with doubt, and uncertainty, and not knowing. I think it's much more interesting to live not knowing than to have answers which might be wrong.
      --Richard Feynman

      ...because sometimes, the truth isn't good enough. Sometimes, people deserve more. Sometimes, people deserve to have their faith rewarded.
      -Batman/Scriptwriter
      in other words, lying is good(well... maybe sometimes)

      as soon as man awakens for a moment and opens his eyes, all the forces that caused him to fall asleep begin to act upon him with tenfold energy and he immediately falls asleep again, very often dreaming that he is awake or is awakening. - george gurdjieff

      I AM is the only thing anyone has ever known or will ever know. everything else, all religion, philosophy, and science, can never be more than dream interpretations. there is no other fact than I AM. - jed mckenna

      it is not that you must be free from fear. the moment you try to free yourself from fear, you create a resistance against fear. resistance in any form doesn't end fear. what is needed rather than running away or controlling, or suppressing or any other resistance is understanding fear. that means watch it, learn about it, come directly into contact with it. - j. krishnamurti

      "if you really want to know who i am, you have to be as absolutely empty as i am. then two mirrors will be facing each other and only emptiness will be mirrored. infinite emptiness will be mirrored. but if you have some idea, then you will see your own idea in me." - Osho

      Half the night I waste in sighs,
      Half in dreams I sorrow after
      The delight of early skies;
      In wakeful dose I sorrow
      For the hand, the lips, the eyes,
      For the meeting of the morrow,
      The delight of happy laughter,
      The delight of low replies.
      -Alfred Lord Tennyson

      Wine comes in at the mouth
      And love comes in at the eye;
      That’s all we shall know for truth
      Before we grow old and die.
      I lift the glass to my mouth,
      I look at you, and I sigh.
      -W.B. Yeats

      I've decided the act that cannot
      wait
      Is the important will to
      create
      But, ah, if my belly is ignored
      The pantry door shall implore
      But I've been known to reach the bed
      Ideas still famished in my head.

      Don't bend; don't water
      it down; don't try to
      make it logical; don't
      edit your own soul
      according to the fashion.
      Rather, follow your most intense obsessions
      mercilessly.
      -Franz Kafka

      ~ Bertrand Russell

      She never told her love,
      But let concealment, like a worm i' the bud,
      Feed on her damask cheek: she pined in thought,
      And with a green and yellow melancholy
      She sat, like patience on a monument,
      Smiling at grief. Was not this love indeed?
      -Shakespeare

      Here is the difference between Dante, Milton, and me. They wrote about hell and never saw the place. I wrote about Chicago after looking the town over for years and years.

      If you don't believe we evolved as a species because we are naturally inclined
      to support one another then what do you believe stops us killing one another?
