"They always talk about, you know, the arc of the moral universe is long but bends towards justice - but it doesn't bend toward justice by gravity; you have to bend it. And there's a bunch of people trying to bend it back..."

"So maybe it's not the politicians who suck; maybe it's something else. Like the public. That would be a nice realistic campaign slogan for somebody: "The public sucks. Elect me." Put the blame where it belongs: on the people. Because if everything is really the fault of politicians, where are all the bright, honest, intelligent Americans who are ready to step in and replace them? Where are these people hiding? The truth is, we don't have people like that. Everyone's at the mall, scratching his balls and buying sneakers with lights in them. And complaining about the politicians.“ - George Carlin

In the novel Matter, by Iain M. Banks, an alien spacecraft called The 100th Idiot explains to two humans that its name comes from an old fable...

“One hundred idiots make idiotic plans and carry them out. All but one justly fail. The hundredth idiot, whose plan succeeded through pure luck, is immediately convinced he’s a genius.”​



Hi all,

Someone commented on the quote in my sig and I just thought it would be nice to see what peoples favourite quotes are. They can be funny or inspiring, prophetic or poignant - just whatever has stuck with you.

Here's the full quote from my sig by Alice Morse Earle

"The clock is running. Make the most of today. Time waits for no man. Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift. That's why it is called the present."

Another one that always stuck with me was political graffiti I saw on a wall in Israel about 15 years ago.

"Fighting for peace is like fucking for virginity"

I know it's crude but it delivers it's message with a punch and really made me think while I had the sound of machine gun fire and tank shells going off in the back ground.
We used that in the 60’s during the Vietnam - USA war.

“Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds. The mediocre mind is incapable of understanding the man who refuses to bow blindly to conventional prejudices and chooses instead to express his opinions courageously and honestly.”
