"All my bullets have someone's name on them. To save time, I simply label each one 'Spaz'."

 

 

"Definition: 'Love' is making a shot to the knees of a target 120 kilometers away using an Aratech sniper rifle with a tri-light scope. Statement: This definition, I am told, is subject to interpretation. Obviously, love is a matter of odds. Not many meatbags could make such a shot, and fewer would derive love from it. Yet for me, love is knowing your target, putting them in your targeting reticle, and together, achieving a singular purpose, against statistically long odds." - HK-47

Reminds me of a bit from The Tenth Planet:

 

Polly: Don't you care?!

Cyberman: Care? No, why should I care?

Polly: Because they're people and they're going to die!

Cyberman: I do not understand you, there are people dying all over your world yet you do not care about them.

Kudos for the obscure!

Clearly I'm on the wrong message board... :)

Well I've found variations on the "A Conservative is a Liberal who's been raped" in assorted books (fictional and non) that have been published throughout the 20th century going back to early pulp novels.... So it's probably one of those "universal lines" that's emerged somewhere...

I saw this great quote on fourchon last night. It's my new inspiration in the gym.

 

"I never admitted it to anyone but every time I go to the gym all I think about when I feel like I can't go any longer is "Batman could. Batman WOULD." and then I keep going."

There was a time when I questioned the ability for the schizoid to ever experience genuine happiness, at the very least for a prolonged segment of time. I am no closer to finding the answer, however, it has become apparent that contentment is certainly a realizable goal. I find these results to be adequate, if not pleasing. Unfortunately, connection is another subject entirely. When one has sufficiently examined the mind and their emotional constructs, connection can be easily imitated. More data must be gleaned and further collated before a sufficient judgment can be reached.

Find something you love and stick with it.

He was an inspiration to a young Joe that needed it. It wasn't the sole reason, but it definitely did help me kick my drug habit. He's a former professional BMX rider and now works for Eastern Bikes near Raleigh, NC.

I misread that as 'Find someone to love with a stick'

"When I die, I want to die like my grandfather--who died peacefully in his sleep. Not screaming like all the passengers in his car."

 

 

"Relationships are hard. It's like a full time job, and we should treat it like one. If your boyfriend or girlfriend wants to leave you, they should give you two weeks' notice. There should be severance pay, and the day before they leave you, they should have to find you a temp." --Bob Ettinger

 

 

"Our bombs are smarter than the average high school student! At least they can find Afghanistan ." --A. Whitney Brown

Those heroes that shed their blood and lost their lives, You are now lying in the soil of a friendly country. Therefore rest in peace. There is no difference between the Johnnies and the Mehmets to us where they lie side by side here in this country of ours. You the mothers who sent their sons from far away countries wipe away your tears. Your sons are now living in our bosom and are in peace. Having lost their lives on this land they have become our sons as well.

 

Kemal Ataturk, on the war memorial at Gallipoli, and further evidence were it needed that he was an extraordinary statesman. The Turkish don't venerate him for nothing.

That is certainly an extraordinary and admirable sentiment. I went with a group of British officers to Monte Cassino a few years ago and we made a deliberate trip to lay a wreath at the German cemetery, after our own.

"Myths and legends die hard in America. We love them for the extra dimension they provide, the illusion of near-infinite possibility to erase the narrow confines of most men's reality. Weird heroes and mold-breaking champions exist as living proof to those who need it that the tyranny of 'the rat race' is not yet final." - Dr Hunter S. Thompson, The Great Shark Hunt

I had to copy this out by hand, rather than copy paste, so have a read:

 

The 71st Infantry Division was attacking on all sides the grain stores which were being defended by the Russian soldiers. After three days the defenders sent a radio message to their commanders...

'We have no food'

The answer was 'Fight, then you will forget your hunger.'

Three days later they transmitted again: 'We no longer have anything to drink, what are we to do?' And back came the reply:

'Now is the time to live on your wits and your ammunition'

The defenders waited for two days and then came the last message.

'We no longer have any ammunition'.

Hardly five minutes had passed and they had their reply:

'The Soviet Union thanks you, you have served your purpose.'

 

Quoted in 'Hero or Coward' by Elmar Dinter.

"It wasn't lies. It was just... bull****"."
