The golden rule: The guy who has the gold, rules.
Democracy encourages the majority to decide things about which the majority is ignorant of.
Have you ever been in love? Horrible, isn't it? It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and opens your heart and it means that someone can get inside you and mess you up. You build up all these defenses. You build up this whole armor, for years, so no one can hurt you, then one stupid person, no different from any other stupid person, wanders into your stupid life.... You give them a piece of you. They don't ask for it. They do something dumb one day, like kiss you or smile at you, and then your life isn't your own anymore. Love takes hostages. It gets inside you. It eats you out and leaves you crying in the darkness, so a simple phrase like 'maybe we should just be friends' turns into a glass splinter working its way into your heart. It hurts. Not just in the mind. It's a soul hurt, a body hurt, a real gets-inside-you-and-rips-you-apart pain. I hate love.
Neil Gaiman
In this world, nothing is certain but death and taxes.
Benjamin Franklin, 1706 - 1790
Of all the animals, man is the only one that is cruel. He is the only one that inflicts pain for the pleasure of doing it.
Mark Twain
We are always too busy for our children; we never give them the time or interest they deserve. We lavish gifts upon them; but the most precious gift--our personal association, which means so much to them--we give grudgingly.
Mark Twain
We are strange beings, we seem to go free, but we go in chains--chains of training, custom, convention, association, environment--in a word, Circumstance--and against these bonds the strongest of us struggle in vain.
Mark Twain
Scars are tattoos with better stories
The one who votes decides nothing. The one who counts the vote decides everything.
Josef Stalin
Whoever controls the media, controls the mind.
Jim Morrison
People have to explain themselves when they feel guilty about it.
Alfonso Monachino
No experience in life is ever wasted--no matter the outcome, good or bad--if you learn from it in the end.
What is the most rigorous law of our being? Growth. No smallest atom of our moral, mental, or physical structure can stand still a year. It grows--it must grow; nothing can prevent it.
Mark Twain
That is just the way with some people. They get down on a thing when they don't know nothing about it.
Mark Twain, Huckleberry Finn
We ignore and never mention the Sole Impulse which dictates and compels a man's every act: the imperious necessity of securing his own approval.... To it we owe all that we are.
Mark Twain
The less time I have to work with, the more I get done.
I take comfort in the fact that I out lived all my enemies.
Last words of a man on death row
The sole purpose of human existence is to kindle a light of meaning in the darkness of mere being.
Carl Jung
It's funny because it's true.
Fat Tony, The Simpsons
