Famous quotes

I shall begin with a quote of Sir Winston Churchill.



What is the use of living, if it be not to strive for noble causes and to make this muddled world a better place for those who will live in it after we are gone? How else can we put ourselves in harmonious relation with the great verities and consolations of the infinite and the eternal? And I avow my faith that we are marching towards better days. Humanity will not be cast down. We are going on swinging bravely forward along the grand high road and already behind the distant mountains is the promise of the sun.

Speech in Dundee, Scotland (1908-10-10)
Conselheiro do Fórum Realidade.

"Sunrise in Sodoma, people wake with the fear in their eyes.
There's no time to run because the Lord is casting fire in the sky.
When you make sin, hope you realize all the sinners gotta die.
Sunrise in Sodoma, all the people see the Truth and Final Light."

Not exactly famous, but I like it.

"And Lot's wife, of course, was told not to look back where all those people and their homes had been.
But she did look back, and I love her for that, because it was so human.

So she was turned to a pillar of salt. So it goes."

Kurt Vonnegut Jr., Slaughterhouse - Five.

It's a latim quote that says that you are the responsible for the production of the fortunes of your existence.

There is a quote I like, altough it is very radical and it is not something I would say or defend, but I do think somewhat like that and I also think its really funny.

It had to be by Nietzsche:
(I did look for it in english, but I coulnd't find it)

"Enquanto o padre, esse negador, caluniador e envenenador da vida por profissão for aceito como uma variedade de homem superior, não poderá haver resposta à pergunta: Que é a verdade? A verdade já foi posta de cabeça para baixo quando o advogado do nada foi confundido com o representante da verdade."

Just so it isn't that bad I'll also post a quote in english:

"The fact that man produces a concept "I" besides the totality of his mental and emotional experiences or perceptions does not prove that there must be any specific existence behind such a concept. We are succumbing to illusions produced by our self-created language, without reaching a better understanding of anything. Most of so-called philosophy is due to this kind of fallacy."

The following one is just great:

"Until a man is twenty-five, he still thinks, every so often, that
under the right circumstances he could be the baddest motherfucker in
the world.  If I moved to a martial arts monastery in China and
studied real hard for ten years.  If my family was wiped out by
Colombian drug dealers and I swore myself to revenge.  If I got a
fatal disease, had one year to live, devoted it to wiping out street
crime.  If I just dropped out and devoted my life to being bad.

Hiro used to feel that way, too, but then he ran into Raven. In a way,
this is liberating.  He no longer has to worry about trying to be the
baddest motherfucker in the world. The position is taken."

Neal Stephenson, Snow Crash

There is one that I like from Churchill, I'll look for it, it's the introduction in Aces High song from Iron Maiden.

It's a very nice speech. I will listen to it on São Paulo at their greatest gig!
