    Are there any quotes that hit home with you? any that you live by?
    I am curious because of the trend of people feeling so strongly as to have them tattooed on their bodies.

    Here are a few of my favorite quotes.

    Two possibilities exist: Either we are alone in the Universe or we are not. Both are equally terrifying.
    -Arthur C. Clarke

    "There are those that look at things the way they are, and ask why...I dream of things that never were and say why not?"
    - Robert Kennedy

    The people will believe what the media tells them to believe. - George Orwell

    If we resist our passions, it is more due to their weakness than our strength. - Francois de La Rochefoucauld

    Well this isn't a quote that I live by or anything...it just makes me laugh:

    "Put your trust in the Lord...your ass belongs to me (welcome to Shawshank)." :lol:

    “In a time of deceit telling the truth is a revolutionary act.”
    ― George Orwell

    “Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.”
    ― Martin Luther King Jr

    "In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot."
    -Mark Twain

    "I know one thing, and that is that I know nothing."
    -Socrates

    "When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty."
    -Thomas Jefferson

    “Laws that forbid the carrying of arms...disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes... Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.” (Quoting Cesare Beccaria)

    I've been really into Diogenes lately, if you can't tell from my signature. These aren't super inspirational or anything, but they are hilarious in the context and pretty profound actually.

    When Plato gave Socrates' definition of man as a "featherless biped" and was highly praised for that specific definition, Diogenes plucked a chicken and brought it to Plato's Academy saying, "Behold! I've brought you a man!"

    Also, from my signature:

    "If I were not Diogenes, I should also wish to be Diogenes." Diogenes of Sinope said this to Alexander the Great. Although Diogenes was a homeless, exiled, and considered to be mad philosopher living in a big pot, Alexander looked up to him and asked him if he could do him any favor. Diogenes told him, "Yes," and to stand out of his sunlight. Alexander responded by saying if he were not Alexander, he would wish to be Diogenes to which Diogenes delivered that quote. I thought that was pretty amazing.

    Oh Diogenes, he was quite the character.

    I'll post some more quotable quotes later.

    --

    Since I don't want to post more Diogenes quotes, I'll just put them all in this post:

    Alexander found Diogenes staring attentively at a pile of human bones, Diogenes explained:

    "I am searching for the bones of your father but cannot distinguish them from those of a slave."

    The third paragraph of The Hitch-Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy, by Douglas Adams:

    "This planet has - or rather had - a problem, which was this: most of the people on it were unhappy for pretty much of the time. Many solutions were suggested for this problem, but most of these were largely concerned with the movements of small green pieces of paper, which is odd because on the whole it wasn't the small green pieces of paper that were unhappy."

    Yours not to reason why;
    Yours but to do and die.

    its a small snippet of a larger quote by eugene debs, though most people dont realize that

    and his most famous quote:
    Your Honor, years ago I recognized my kinship with all living beings, and I made up my mind then that I was not one bit better than the meanest on earth. I said then, and I say now, that while there is a lower class, I am in it; and while there is a criminal element, I am of it; and while there is a soul in prison, I am not free.

    that one was used many times of the years by kurt vonnegut in his books and speeches, which is how i first heard of eugene debs. (seriously, look the dude up, he was brilliant)

    Personally I'd say... open a random page from the H2G2 trilogy and there's probably a favourite quote of mine on it. If I had to pick one I'd go with "Isn't it enough to see that a garden is beautiful without having to believe that there are fairies at the bottom of it too?"

    And from the Dirk Gently books, which I should really read again soon: "Let's think the unthinkable, let's do the undoable. Let us prepare to grapple with the ineffable itself, and see if we may not eff it after all."

    I currently have zero tattoos, but when I inevitably end up with some (I really have no idea how I made it to 31 without) the first, in any case, will certainly be Hitchhiker's related. I don't think I'd go with a full quote. Maybe a 42, a "Don't Panic" or a nice bowl of petunias.

    Actually
    This is being quoted, or, as here, paraphrased, all the time. It's hard to get through the day without seeing it, especially since the introduction of the Patriot Act in the U.S. People ignore that Ben was not talking about individual freedom here.

    I actually googled specifically to make sure Benjamin Franklin DID say that quote, curse wikiquotes for failing me!

    And I care less what the context of the quote was, mainly because I like the words themselves - but the history is good to know anyway. The original american dudes frequently did/said shit that surprise us. Or me. Mainly surprise me. Thank you!

    This may not go over so well here, but it's one of my all time funny favorites which still cracks me up every time I think of it... Jack Nicholson's reply to "How do you write women so well?"



    Another funny one I like is:



    There's a bunch I like from Thomas Jefferson and Henry David Thoreau too.
