Quotes which you live by.

Post by Trick on Thu Apr 21, 2011 5:59 am

Simple, list a quote (or several) that you agree with strongly.

My main one:


Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.

Experience is simply what we call our past mistakes.

In matters of style, swim with the current; in matters of principle, stand like a rock.

Thomas Jefferson, 3rd President of the United States

Ask not what your country can do for you; rather, ask what you can do for your country.

John F. Kennedy, 35th President of the United States

I think Presidents occassionally come out with gems.

There is no peace unto the wicked.

"Now you shall receive us.
We do not ask for your poor, or your hungry.
We do not want your tired and sick.
It is your corrupt we claim.
It is your evil that shall be sought by us.
With every breath we shall hunt them down.
Each day we shall spill their blood until it rains down from the skies.
Do not kill. Do not rape. Do not steal. These are principles which every man from every faith can embrace.
These are not polite suggestions. These are codes of behavior, and those of you that ignore them will pay the dearest cost.
There are varying degrees of evil, we urge you lesser forms of filth not to push the bounds and cross over into true corruption, into our domain.
For if you do, one day you will look behind you and see we three, and on that day, you will reap it.
And we will send you to whatever god you wish."

From the movie Boondock Saints

This sounded very familiar to me. I think your friend was semi-quoting a quote by Paul Fix.


=================================================================================


Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.
Confucius

If you compare yourself with others,
you may become vain or bitter,
for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.

Section from the poem "Desiderata"

I actually think that quote should be:

"If you want something done your way, do it yourself."
