PostSubject: Aphorisms and quotes   Sun May 19, 2013 4:17 am

This thread is meant to be a place where you can look for inspiration for what you say and write, and where you can note and share quotes and short texts (1) that you found meaningful or essential to your co-members' education.
Within these limits it should be clear that this is a topic for more serious quotes, though for the sake of great ironical sayings and aphorisms I won't draw any borders here, just keep in mind whle posting that there is another thread specifically for these.
You are invited to discuss the posted quotes if you feel like it, think you don't get the meaning of a quote, but would like to, or happen to discover a new depth of meaning in a quote the original poster hasn't noticed, but I'd kindly ask you to move to another thread with the quote as topic if the interest is too high(2).
If possible, give your quotes the following form by adding the author and origin (though you don't need the colors xD).

"All the conitions have been cleared" (- Lelouch Vi Britannia, Code Geass), so now I'm gonna start with a few samples:

"The old believe everything, the middle-aged suspect everything and the young know everything" - Oscar Wilde

Good ol' Ozzie is famous for his aphorisms, so I expect to cross him a few times here I guess xD

"God doesn't play at dice" - Albert Einstein

In case your quotes need explanations for people that aren't familiar with the topic the author refers to, you may add a few words, like, in this case, Einstein criticises the structure of quantum mechanics that is based on limited random movement of particles, while his relativistic theory believes in cause-and-effect as only determining aspect.

"Everything happens for a reason. Someday, this will also have a beautiful outcome." - Fuwa Aika, Zetsuen no Tempest

Exactly what I wish for this thread, and of course you can post any anime quotes that you see fit.

Have fun posting and I hope you find or share inspiration in this thread!



(1)shouldn't be more than a few sentences
(2)shouldn't be more than a few posts, if you see a page only covered with comments and no single quote on it, plz make a thread with this quote



"Look at the world through our eyes
and smile!"

you know she is a tsun-de-re!^^:

Sometimes you have to follow your heart even if everyone is telling you it's wrong. You'll show them in the end that you were right all along. (I've forgotten the name of the person who came up with it)

The difference between literature and journalism is that journalism is unreadable and literature is not read.
Oscar Wilde

ohhh yes Oscar Wilde xD

let's see what I can recite without looking up xD

"The old believe everything,
the middle-aged suspect everything
and the young know everything."

xD

hah lol had that one already xD

Always forgive your enemies - nothing annoys them so much.

Man is least himself when he talks in his own person. Give him a mask, and he will tell you the truth.

If you pretend to be good, the world takes you very seriously. If you pretend to be bad, it doesn't. Such is the astounding stupidity of optimism.
Oscar Wilde

Lol i bet u memorized that! No fair i'm digging through my brain here >.<

xD
I saw the first one on the 50th birthday of a friend of mine, the second one is really common, and i read the third one in Dorian gray I think

“Nowadays most people die of a sort of creeping common sense, and discover when it is too late that the only things one never regrets are one's mistakes.”

this one will always be connected in my mind with some stupidity I did in 8th grade xD
dorian gray as well btw

Ah i didn't see though last 2 hehe Smile

Last 2 i know of Oliver Wilde

An idea that is not dangerous is unworthy of being called an idea at all

To expect the unexpected shows a thoroughly modern intellect

anyone knows my favorite author? Here goes Stanislaw Lem xD

“When smashing monuments, save the pedestals. They always come in handy.” - Solaris I think

“One day Trurl the constructor put together a machine that could build anything beginning with the letter 'n'.” Cyberiad (I admit, here i had to look up the english title xD)

"Your natural state is enlightening. Everything else you've ever been told about yourself is a lie. We are trying to wake ourselves up, because we come from source energy and we are ALL one. We have to realize that our brothers and sisters that we are seeing in the dream, are mere reflections of our inner self. Yin and yang, love and hate. People that we dislike, are mere reflections of our own character defects. People that we like and love are true successful manifestations of our deepest most inner self. We are beings of light. Our mission, is to be creation, and create positive energy on spaceship Earth."
-From the song "(T-T)b" by Anamanaguchi

---

"Relying on someone, helping each other out, and supporting each other. Most would say that's the right thing to do. However, that's just idealistic. In reality, someone always gets the short end of the stick."
-Hikigaya Hachiman (Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Come wa Machigatteiru)

---

"If someone didn't have any pride, wouldn't they also be lacking in self-confidence? If someone was free of greed, wouldn't they have trouble supporting their family? And if people didn't envy one another, wouldn't they stop inventing new things?"
-Chitanda Eru (Hyouka)

---

"Be strong enough to stand alone, smart enough to know when you need help, and brave enough to ask for it."
-Anonymous
