The quote is originally by Sun Tzu, Chinese general and author of "The Art of War".

Now for my shizz, I know many more by the way.

"I once saw a picture of a man Pushing a door (the door has the word "pull" on it) and then a text saying:Reading makes life Easier"

This is from a friend of mine who loves reading. ^-^;

"Warning: If you are reading this then this warning is for you. Every word you read of this useless fine print is another second off your life. Don't you have other things to do? Is your life so empty that you honestly can't think of a better way to spend these moments? Or are you so impressed with authority that you give respect and credence to all that claim it? Do you read everything you're supposed to read? Do you think every thing you're supposed to think? Buy what you're told to want? Get out of your apartment. Meet a member of the opposite sex. Stop the excessive shopping and masturbation. Quit your job. Start a fight. Prove you're alive. If you don't claim your humanity you will become a statistic. You have been warned."

...Yeah, I just rewatched Fight Club. So good.

“All that is gold does not glitter, not all those who wander are lost; the old that is strong does not wither, deep roots are not reached by the frost. From the ashes a fire shall be woken, a light from the shadows shall spring; renewed shall be blade that was broken, the crownless again shall be king.”

Funny, I was actually thinking about posting this quote =) Here's an extended version:

This one's a favorite:

Is that from Lord of the Rings?

I recognized that quote, since I saw it on the page for He Who Fights Monsters...

He who fights with monsters should look to it that he himself does not become a monster. And when you gaze long into an abyss, the abyss gazes also into you.
(Wer mit Ungeheuern kämpft, mag zusehn, dass er nicht dabei zum Ungeheuer wird. Und wenn du lange in einen Abgrund blickst, blickt der Abgrund auch in dich hinein.)
--Nietzsche aphorism, taken from Jenseits von Gut und Böse (Beyond Good and Evil)

Reminds me of Baldur's Gate..

"Magic is impressive, but Minsc leads now! Swords for everyone!"
"I won't cry for the dead! I won't! Well, maybe a little... but I will staunch the tears with righteous fury!"
"Give a man a fish and he feeds himself for a day, give a man a sword and he can chow down on the meaty marrow of evil!"

-Minsc

Lovely man.

"Every passing hour brings the Solar System forty-three thousand miles closer to Globular Cluster M13 in Hercules — and still there are some misfits who insist that there is no such thing as progress. "

"There is no reason why good cannot triumph as often as evil. The triumph of anything is a matter of organization. If there are such things as angels, I hope that they are organized along the lines of the Mafia."

"Sometimes I think it is a great mistake to have matter that can think and feel. It complains so. By the same token, though, I suppose that boulders and mountains and moons could be accused of being a little too phlegmatic"

"Take Care of the People, and God Almighty Will Take Care of Himself"

"Hello, babies. Welcome to Earth. It's hot in the summer and cold in the winter. It's round and wet and crowded. At the outside, babies, you've got about a hundred years here. There's only one rule that I know of, babies — "God damn it, you've got to be kind." "

"Pretend to be good always, and even God will be fooled"

"I was on par with the Creator of the Universe there in the dark in the cocktail lounge. I shrunk the Universe to a ball exactly one light-year in diameter. I had it explode. I had it disperse itself again.
Ask me a question, any question. How old is the Universe? It is one half-second old, but the half-second has lasted one quintillion years so far. Who created it? Nobody created it. It has always been here.
What is time? It is a serpent which eats its tail, like this:
This is the snake which uncoiled itself long enough to offer Eve the apple, which looked like this:
What was the apple which Eve and Adam ate? It was the Creator of the Universe.
And so on.
Symbols can be so beautiful, sometimes. "

"I still believe that peace and plenty and happiness can be worked out some way. I am a fool. "

"Who is more to be pitied, a writer bound and gagged by policemen or one living in perfect freedom who has nothing more to say? "

Dammit, I could go on and on and on and on and on and on and on. Those are all quotes from Kurt Vonneguts books.

That quote reminds me of this one:

Build a man a fire and he'll be warm for a night, set a man on fire and he'll be warm the rest of his life.
