I'm glad to see Walk On and Pride referances.

I will put up some more U2, but they might already be here.




"So we are told, this is the golden age. But gold is the reason for the wars we wage. I want to be with you be with you night and day. But nothing changes, on new years day"


"These winds and tides
this change of times
won't
drag you away"


"would you deny for others what you demand for yourself?"



The most inspiring and motivating words for me have been in PRIDE. For, they just hold a lot of meaning, and mean a lot more than just the words themselves. Each chorus has a different contextual meaning, and it takes the whole song to get the full effect, but

"In the name of love,
One more in the name of love.
In the name of love,
What more, in the name of Love?


one/what is open to interpretation, and maybe I am not totally accurate, but that is what I hear on the studio version, and that is how I sing it, and how it has the most meaning to me.

Froma a very dear friend:


"Find the one for you"


----------


u2

"True love never can be rent
But only true love can keep beauty innocent"


Dad - - his mother, my grandmother

"Never have sex with someone who you don't want to have children with"

(it was worded better, but I don't remember it poetically)



THis was my personal quote for the longest time, everyday it was there, and it is still on my wall

"If you cannot stand alone, then you cannot stand at all"

(refering to personal responsibilty, independance, respect, and ability)


There are some great FF quotes, but it will take me time to remember them, my memory is shot right now.


i forgot who - "war doesn't decide who is right, war decides who is left"

"No one is more miserable than the person who wills everything and can do nothing" - some roman emperor, Marcus Aurelius I think.


"Were one, but were not the same, we got to carry each other, carry each other".


Oh boy... I forgot about my Zen Speaks book...

"There are people in this world who are forced to do shameless things in order to survive, but there are even more people who do even more despicable things simply to satisfy extravagant and shameless desires." - Zen Speaks, the story of Rashomon


"an answer is mos likely found where the question begins"

"Do it"

"A leader must know how to understand the feelings of others. He must be able to understand and communicate with both the upper and lower classes, for only then can he unite them as a whole society"

Zen something or other.

In return"

WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAA

I just came up with a great one and wanted to write it down before I forgot---

"Love is getting on your knees without being asked"
- For Honor, me


(now...... there are a lot of ways that can be taken, I suppose.. but I like that about it. It shocks you, but it is true.)

May the roads rise to meet you,
May the winds always be at your back,
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
The rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the hollow of His hand.
-Irish blessing

"There is no failure here sweetheart, just when you quit." Bono

"Love forever, love is free." Gorillaz

(I forgot about this thread)



"Life has nothing to do with you"
- personal


"Be careful with whom you associate with"
- my father... (........)




"Bless those who persecute you;
bless, and don't curse.
Rejoice with those who rejoice.
Weep with those who weep.
Be of the same mind one toward another.
Don't set your mind on high things,
but associate with the humble.
Don't be wise in your own conceits.
Repay no one evil for evil.
Respect what is honorable in the sight of all men.
If it is possible, as much as it is up to you,
be at peace with all men.
Don't seek revenge yourselves, beloved,
but give place to God's wrath.
For it is written,
"Vengeance belongs to me;
I will repay, says the Lord."
Therefore
"If your enemy is hungry, feed him.
If he is thirsty, give him a drink.
For in doing so, you will heap
coals of fire on his head."
Don't be overcome by evil,
but overcome evil with good."
Romans 12:14-21

(Respect what is honorable in the sight of all men)
(Victory must be observed like a funeral)



Tao Te Ching
by LAO TSU
Translation by Gia Fu Feng
and Jane English



Thirty-One

Good weapons are instruments of fear; all creatures hate them.
Therefore followers of Tao never use them.
The wise man prefers the left.
The man of war prefers the right.

Weapons are instruments of fear; they are not a wise man's tools.
He uses them only when he has no choice.
Peace and quiet are dear to his heart,
And victory no cause for rejoicing.
If you rejoice in victory, then you delight in killing;
If you delight in killing, you cannot fulfill yourself.

On happy occasions precedence is given to the left,
On sad occasions to the right.
In the army the general stands on the left,
The commander in chief on the right.
That means that war is conducted like a funeral.
When many people are being killed,
They should be mourned in heartfelt sorrow.
That is why a victory must be observed like a funeral.




"The ultimate act for any warrior is to lay down his sword"
- from the movie "HERO" (yimou)

could be a fantastic oversimplification of nietzsche (paraphrase: 'that which does not kill you makes you stronger'). or possibly a bit of a chumbawumba rip off ('i get knocked down but i get up again').

but actually it's batman's dad in the movie batman begins.
