Favorite Quotes(NON U2)

If this is in the wrong place then please move thanks!!


We are not makers of history. We are made by history

There can be no deep disappointment where there is no deep love

Nothing in all the world is more dangerous then sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity

A riot is the language of the unheard


Neither fire or wind, birth nor death can erase our good deeds

I think about Ketchup,
Because I know that the truth is that

I think about being alone,
In a bottle.
Standing next to the mustard all day.

Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country - JFK

For of those to whom much is given, much is required -JFK

But peace does not rest in the charters and covenants alone. It lies in the hearts and minds of all people. So let us not rest all our hopes on parchment and on paper, let us strive to build peace, a desire for peace, a willingness to work for peace in the hearts and minds of all of our people. I believe that we can. I believe the problems of human destiny are not beyond the reach of human beings. JFK

Forgive your enemies, but never forget their names - JFK

"what happens to a dream deferred? does it dry up like a raisin in the sun? or fester like a sore and then run? does it stink like rotten meat? or crust and sugar over like a syrupy sweet? does it sag like a heavy load? or does it explode? - langstong hughes

I promise that one day everything will be better for you. - donnie darko

"you're not your job. you're not how much money you have in the bank. you're not the car you drive. you're not the contents of your wallet. you're not your fucking khakis. you're the all-singing, all-dancing crap of the world." - tyler durden (brad pitt) from fight club

When the child was a child, It was the time for these questions: Why am I me, and why not you?
Why am I here, and why not there? When did time begin, and where does space end? Is life under the sun not just a dream? Is what I see and hear and smell not just an illusion of a world before the world? Given the facts of evil and people. does evil really exist? How can it be that I, who I am, didn’t exist before I came to be, and that, someday, I, who I am, will no longer be who I am? - Peter Handke

Stop crying now here comes the sun
I didn't mean to hurt you

So I wean myself off slowly
And now it seems that we're falling apart, but I hope I see the good in you come back again. I just believed in you.
- Blur, Sweet song

"Let us go get the shit kicked out of us by love." - Sam (actor?) from Love Actually

Dr. Lilian Thurman: If the sky were to suddenly open up, there would be no law, there would be no rule. There would only be you and your memories.
