one for the vegans

“Factory farming isn't just killing: It is negation, a complete denial of the animal as a living being with his or her own needs and nature. It is not the worst evil we can do, but it is the worst evil we can do to them.”

ooh..good one..
only the wise (and timid?)think things through
(and since wisdom and intillectualism are often bound, the wise can often overthink..which isn't so wise sometimes)

lets' see, your quote brought this one to mind
'Veni, Vedi, Veci' (I came, I saw, I conquered)
-supposedly Julius Ceasar was known for saying this
There needs to be a warrior smiley..one with a feirce face and one of those viking like helmets with horns on it head.

Willie Wonka quotes..
What is this Wonka, some kind of funhouse?
Why? Are you having fun?
A little nonsense now and then is relished by the wisest men.
We are the music makers, we are the dreamers of dreams

"What man is a man who does not make the world better?"

Saw it in an Albertson's bathroom wall.

War is an extension of economics and diplomacy through other means.

Economics and diplomacy are methods of securing resources used by humans.

Securing resources is the one necessary behavior for all living things.

Cool, yeah that's a familiar one.

I think this thread is either gonna fizzle or explode, one or the other...

Here's a quote
Nobutada: [after Algren is defeated in fencing pratice] Please forgive; too many mind.
Algren: [puzzeled] "Too many mind?"
Nobutada: Hai, mind the sword, mind the people watch, mind enemy - -too many mind.
[seriously]
Nobutada: No mind.
Algren: [pretending getting it] No mind.

In chalk I wrote on a bathroom wall once:
the lock is written in chalk.

Then by the next day someone had erased it. Laugh

The Last Samurai is a killer movie, even if it is super silly.

War is an extension of economics and diplomacy through other means.

Azazel
Lend me your wings of twelve
I shall fly into the storm
I, son of fire, in anger become
The lightning bolts that strike the earth

The one in my signature. It's true, and unfortunately relevant for me most of my life. I guess that's why I circulate it. Not the most glamorous of sources, but hey . . .

"That's the problem with drinking ... If something bad happens you drink in attempt to forget; if something good happens you drink in order to celebrate; and if nothing happens you drink to make something happen." -- Charles Bukowski

I can't remember who wrote these two, it wasn't the same person, and these are paraphrased because I can't remember exactly how they go, but I like them.

Men gain more wisdom from failure than they do from success.

and

Damn, I can't remember the other one now. 🙁
I'll come back later when I remember it.

Hey, Adam! I have a couple of cool alcohol quotes:
Winston churhill said something along th elines of: "I have taken more from drinking than it's taken from me"

Another good one from an unknown source is:
"If you can lay on the ground without holding on, you're not drunk enough yet"

"George Bush says he speaks to god every day, and christians love him for it. If George Bush said he spoke to god through his hair dryer, they would think he was mad. I fail to see how the addition of a hair dryer makes it any more absurd."
