The Oxford Vs Cambridge boat race a few years ago.

Princess Ann was presenting the Trophy to the winning team. She presented the award and leaned in to offer a congratulatory kiss to the team coxwain.

As it happened the TV commentator reported....

"Oh, and isn't that a super gesture! The princess is kissing the cox' of the Cambridge team."
Human beings are as significant as a cigarette burn in the sun.

"Ok, I've just about had my FILL of riddle asking, quest assigning, insult throwing, pun hurling, hostage taking, iron mongering, smart arsed fools, freaks, and felons that continually test my will, mettle, strength, intelligence, and most of all, patience! If you've got a straight answer ANYWHERE in that bent little head of yours, I want to hear it pretty damn quick or I'm going to take a large blunt object roughly the size of Elminster AND his hat, and stuff it lengthwise into a crevice of your being so seldom seen that even the denizens of the nine hells themselves wouldn't touch it with a twenty-foot rusty halberd!

I have to take a few from two of my favorite movies. They pretty much sum up my feelings on many things. Indulge me for a moment, please.

"I know nothing of God, or the Devil. I have never seen a vision nor learned a secret that will damn or save my soul." ~Armand, Interview With the Vampire (1994)

"A census taker once tried to test me. I ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice chianti."
~Dr. Hannibal Lecter, The Silence of the Lambs (1991)

I'm a bit late getting to this thread, and I haven't had a chance to read all the posts, so sorry if anyone has already mentioned these two quotes...

"My right I have made for myself, by not what I can do, but by how important it is for others that I be resented, maligned, misunderstood and hated."

"Other men's deaths make the earth a sweeter, finer place for those who have the capacity to relish each moment spent upon it."

Both by Anton Szandor LaVey
"The best thing about any day is its gentle lapse into night, the dark mantle whence all secrets evolve."

I've seen this quotation and really liked it:

"The man who never alters his opinion is like standing water and breeds reptiles of the mind." by William Blake

Oh and I would add this one: "There is no such thing as non-existence." ...this quite interests mind, doesn't it?

Since this thread has been "reactivated":

I like that one Shade. I had a couple on a truck I drove several years ago:

"Don't tell me what kind of day to have!" and
"Warning: I drive like you do!"

Thank you for reviving this. One of my favorites is from the danish science fiction writer Erwin Neutzsky-Wulff. Although over the years I've come to disagree with him on some issues his writings had a big impact on me when I was younger. The quote is from his book "Faust", the translation is my own:

"Seek then not to be like others, for he who is like his fellow man is nothing. What use is he? But if the god has made thee unlike them, seek then to be even more unlike them, that they may come to you and ask: Do for us that which we are incapable of doing ourselves".

This is spoken by his "mad" prophet who has many similarities to Nietzsche, and I've always taken it to heart and based my personal strategy on being the one who could do what others could not.

@ Dr. de Sade: Actually I believe Baudelaire said that first.

"In a world where carpenters get resurrected, everything is possible."
~ Eleanor of Aquitaine, The Lion in Winter

"Did you ever notice how in the Bible, when ever God needed to punish someone, or make an example, or whenever God needed a killing, he sent an angel? Did you ever wonder what a creature like that must be like? A whole existence spent praising your God, but always with one wing dipped in blood. Would you ever really want to see an angel?"
~ Thomas Dagget, The Prophecy

"Whoever said 'laughter is the best medicine' never had gonorrhea."
~ Earl, My Name is Earl

For my sins I will ask no forgiveness. For my sins they are not to forgive.

"In order to say "don't be evil" you must already dwell in that space of evil, and I congratulate you for it" - Slavoj Zizek

(We do not punish criminals for example, or others we judge as wrong doers, because they are evil - we both judge them evil and punish them because we claim a right to do so - and we claim this right because their actions are in discord with what we judge as good, as the best -the mightiest way- for a productive existence of our society for example.
Thus the very judgment of good and evil is an affirmation that the mightiest authority has the right to violently abuse it's surroundings, an affirmation that might is indeed right, no matter how evil it may be.)
"Art is not merely an imitation of the reality of nature, but in truth a metaphysical supplement to the reality of nature, placed alongside thereof for its conquest."
Friedrich Nietzsche
