Favourite idiom/saying/ word/ words of wisdom/ quote

Recommended Posts

Title is self-explanatory, but lets try to not be too crude. They don't have to be from someone famous, the first ones are words of wisdom from my beau (they may not be exact but close enough). Whatever jumble of words are important to you. If there is a line from a song that you think is important to you, that works too.

Okay, so some of my favourites are:

"You have to have a life too, you know?"

"There is another day tomorrow"

When you're telling people the truth, make 'em laugh. Otherwise, they'll kill you.

Dont argue with an idiot, they'll drag you down to your intelligence and beat you with experience

You can bitch because roses have thorns, or you can rejoice because thorns have roses :D

Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift. That's why we call it the present

Shoot for the moon! Even if you miss, you'll never see Earth again!

shenanigans: i love it so much :D It tastes good while your saying it, and it's one of those ones that sounds like the thing it's desribing, if you know what i mean?

there's some examples, now how's about you? :D

For words of wisdom, I like:

"The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step"

and, sadly from the anime Blood+, "Live for today but look forward to tomorrow."

As for a favourite saying, I have to go with this little gem by H.P. Lovecraft, posted yet again by me.

The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far. The sciences, each straining in its own direction, have hitherto harmed us little; but some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the deadly light into the peace and safety of a new dark age.

The first one is very true... and i love the second one :P its like a better spin on "Keep your friends close and your enemies closer"

mine: "In the Darkness, you can always see the Light. But in the Light, you are too blind to see the Darkness"

Hmn, thats very interesting, and its pretty true. When everything is going good, people done usually notice trouble on the way.

heh, aint that the truth :P When you hear that saying, it makes me think of all the journeys a person can be on, and the ones that are coming to a close. For example, Im going into grade 12 this year. Now, I'm taking a victory lap, but if i wasnt, this would be my last year of public schooling, after 12 years. That's certainly a journey of 1000 miles :D

Aw, what's wrong with Blood+? :P I liked that series alot.

Wow, thats a pretty cynical outlook on the ineptness of our minds. You dont think there is a single person who could handle that revelation?

Actually, Keep your friends close and enemies closer has malicious subtext, meant to deceive them so you can understand and destroy them. My saying is to destroy the state of "enemy" with them by making them your friend first. and if they refuse then you can destroy them the more traditional way

Lovecraft was well known to be a cynical dickhead. Writes great horror, but the dude had about as negative of a look on life as humanly possible.

It's more about humanity as a whole not being able to take the knowledge. Maybe here and there someone can handle it, but as a whole, humanity will crumble under the weight of such knowledge. And remember, this is more about how to entire universe works and how everything fits together.

Wouldn't necessarily call him a dickhead myself, I believe he has every reason to be cynical. Humanity and people aren't necessarily very tolerant of things they don't know or understand, and are frightened of it.

I love it when people say he was racist. I am a bit like him, hates everyone. He even hated white people (especially from the American South, though I won't hold that against him). He also married a Jewish woman, even though he was supposedly "anti-semetic." Granted his way of talking of other races and religions is a little offensive, by today's standards, but I believe is status quo ante.

it pretty much is saying like....EX: gang member seen as the evil.....but you know in their hearts they want to do the right thing.....where as say....a politician....they look all good and dandy.....until it turns out they have THEIR own goals

As far as I'm concerned, that's enough to make him a dickhead. He was a negative nancy who hated everything because he felt it made him feel smarter.

The middle quote tells me Hank Hill. I dunno about the other two, though.

My favorites.

"If it bleeds, you can kill it. If it doesn't bleed, you can make it bleed. Then you can kill it."

"No matter how low in life you are, there is always someone worse off than you are."

"No matter how much of a success you are in life, there is always someone better off than you."

"No matter how nice you are to people. No matter how much you are loved by the public, there will always be at least one dude that will hate your guts no matter what happens."

"It's time to kick ass and chew bubble gum.....  And I'm alll outta gum...."

"I'm here to kick ass and drink cups of tea.... And I'm all outta ass."

One that have helped me a lot over the years, and probably have got me in a lot of trouble as well, the classic:

Whatever doesn't kill me, only makes me stronger.

One I came up myself, and which I think could deserve to be among the famous laws of Murphy:

Nothing is truly foolproof, because no-one is as creative and resourceful as fools when it comes to making a mess of things.

And one of my favorites, by the very creator of the topic. (Hope you don't mind.^^)

MUHAHAHA!!! That's because I'm an evil genus!

*Long break.*

...Who obviously don't know how to spell 'genius'...

I'll come with more as they present themself.

I like that one alot :D And it reminded me of another one that i like: "Don't regret the things that you do, regret the things that you don't" I have used that saying to convince myself to do some things i never would have otherwise XD

MUHAHAHA!!! That's because I'm an evil genus!

*Long break.*

Words of wisdom? Okay...

"Intentions mean nothing if a greater tradgety is caused."

"Seeing one elevated often attracts the eyes of others who suffer."

"Giving one what they have not earned is like pouring sand into their hands."

Virtual donut goes to the one who figures out where these quotes came from. (And I mean ALL of them!)

Aha, Ic, i never looked at it that way before. I always figured it was telling you to put extra effort into the people that piss you off? Yea that doesnt really make sense :S

Lovecraft was well known to be a cynical dickhead. Writes great horror, but the dude had about as negative of a look on life as humanly possible.

Alot of writers seem to have that :/ Or maybe just the ones that get quoted alot...

"Evil is a point of view"

I LOVE that! It's so true to!!!

"I am not a stalker....you just happen to always be going in the same direction as I am"

I have said this to girls SO many times lol

0.0 you actually needed to use that one before?

I remembered another one:

"If we can't have fun, we're not gunna do it!" This is a POV that i inherited from my dad :D

Oh, and my pretty sure i completely screwed up the roses quote in my first post, just fyi :) (There's an Ev'l Genus for you right there, Asper XD)
