    Re: Favourite quotes

    "It has been said, 'the truth will make men free.' The truth alone has never made anyone free. It is only doubt which will bring mental emancipation." - Anton Szandor LaVey

    "Ignorance is one thing, but our society thrives increasingly on stupidity. It depends on people going along with whatever they are told. The media promotes a cultivated stupidity as a posture that is not only acceptable but laudable." - Anton Szandor LaVey

    "There is a beast in man that needs to be exercised, not exorcised." - Anton Szandor LaVey

    "There are many who would like my time. I shun them. There are some who share my time. I am entertained by them. There are precious few who contribute to my time. I cherish them." - Anton Szandor LaVey

    "Most of the interesting people I've ever met have been deviant in one form or another." - Anton Szandor LaVey

    "I dont crave companionship. It stands in my way. I live for pleasure. There are few persons who can give me as much pleasure as those acts I perform myself. I would rather create pleasure according to my own whim than be subjected to the whims of others." - Anton Szandor LaVey

    "What good are friends if they cant do you any good?" - Anton Szandor LaVey

    "What is there to see if I go outside? Don't tell me. I know. I can see other people. I don't want to see other people." - Anton Szandor LaVey

    "I find no stimulation in watching ordinary people trying to put the make on other uninteresting people." - Anton Szandor LaVey

    "If a guest in your lair annoys you, treat him cruelly and without mercy." - Anton Szandor LaVey

    "If a person wants to be hurt and enjoys suffering, then there is no reason not to indulge him in his wont." - Anton Szandor LaVey

    "There are many who would take my time, I shun them. There are some who share my time, I am entertained by them. There are precious few who contribute to my time, I cherish them." - Anton Szandor LaVey

    "To the Maker the archetype, the self-sustainer, human interaction is usually a waste of the most precious thing in his vital existance: time." - Anton Szandor LaVey

    "Why should I not hate mine enemies―if I "love" them does that not place me at their mercy?" - Anton Szandor LaVey

    "When ghettos become the mainstream of society, islands of individuality cannot help but harbor an elite." - Anton Szandor LaVey

    "When a Satanist commits a wrong, he realizes that is it natural to make a mistake―and if he is truly sorry about what he has done, he will learn from it and take care not to do the same thing again. If he is not honestly sorry about what he has done, and knows he will do the same thing over and over, he has no business confessing and asking forgiveness in the first place." - Anton Szandor LaVey

    "There is nothing inherently sacred about moral codes. Like the wooden idols of long ago, they are the work of human hands, and what man has made, man can destroy!" - Anton Szandor LaVey

    "Forcing yourself to feel indiscriminate love is very unnatural. If you try to love everyone you only lessen your feelings for those who deserve your love. Repressed hatred can lead to many physical and emotional aliments. By learning to release your hatred towards those who deserve it, you cleanse yourself of these malignant emotions and need not take your pent-up hatred out on your loved ones." - Anton Szandor LaVey

    Re: Your Favorite Quotes: Quotable Quotes! (Post it here)

    “And so now I’d like to say – people can change anything they want to. And that means everything in the world. People are running about following their little tracks – I am one of them. But we’ve all got to stop just following our own little mouse trail. People can do anything – this is something that I’m beginning to learn. People are out there doing bad things to each other. That’s because they’ve been dehumanised. It’s time to take the humanity back into the center of the ring and follow that for a time. Greed, it ain’t going anywhere. They should have that in a big billboard across Times Square. Without people you’re nothing. That’s my spiel.”
    — Joe Strummer

    Re: Favourite quotes

    "I am an anarch in space, a metahistorian in time. Hence I am committed to neither the political present nor tradition; I am blank and also open and potent in any direction." - Ernst Junger

    "Today only the person who no longer believes in a happy ending, only he who has consciously renounced it, is able to live. A happy century does not exist; but there are moments of happiness, and there is freedom in the moment." - Ernst Junger

    "The anarch knows the rules. He has studied them as a historian and goes along with them as a contemporary. Wherever possible, he plays his own game within their framework; this makes the fewest waves." - Ernst Junger

    "The partisan wants to change the law, the criminal break it; the anarch wants neither. He is not for or against the law. While not acknowledging the law, he does try to recognize it like the laws of nature, and he adjusts accordingly." - Ernst Junger

    "We do not escape our boundaries or our innermost being. We do not change. It is true we may be transformed, but we always walk within our boundaries, within the marked-off circle." - Ernst Junger

    "I wish to defy society not in order to improve it, but to hold it at bay no matter what." - Ernst Junger

    "For the anarch, little is changed when he strips off a uniform that he wore partly as fool’s motley, partly as camouflage. It covers his spiritual freedom, which he will objectivate during such transitions. This distinguishes him from the anarchist, who, objectively unfree, starts raging until he is thrust into a more rigorous straitjacket." - Ernst Junger

    "Compulsory schooling is essentially a means of curtailing natural strength and exploiting people. The same is true of military conscription, which developed within the same context. The anarch rejects both of them - just like obligatory vaccination and insurance of all kinds." - Ernst Junger

    "A basic theme for the anarch is how man, left to his own devices, can defy superior forces – whether state, society, or the elements – by making use of their rules without submitting to them." - Ernst Junger

    "As an anarch, who acknowledges neither law nor custom, I owe it to myself to get at the very heart of things. I then probe them in terms of their contradictions, like image and mirror image." - Ernst Junger

    "The anarchist, as the born foe of authority, will be destroyed by it after damaging it more or less. The anarch, on the other hand, has appropriated authority; he is sovereign. He therefore behaves as a neutral power vis-à-vis state and society. He may like, dislike, or be indifferent to whatever occurs in them. That is what determines his conduct; he invests no emotional values." - Ernst Junger

    "I am an anarch – not because I despise authority, but because I need it. Likewise, I am not a nonbeliever, but a man who demands something worth believing in." - Ernst Junger

    "The special trait making me an anarch is that I live in a world which I ‘ultimately’ do not take seriously. This increases my freedom; I serve as a temporary volunteer." - Ernst Junger

    "The anarch wages his own wars, even when marching in rank and file." - Ernst Junger

    "My unlucky star had destined me to be born when there was much talk about morality and, at the same time, more murders than in any other period. There is, undoubtedly, some connection between these phenomena." - Ernst Junger

    "When society involves the anarch in a conflict which in which he does not participate inwardly, it challenges him to launch an opposition. He will try to turn the lever with which society moves him. Society is then at his disposal, say, as a stage for grand spectacles that are devised for him. Everything changes; the fetter becomes fascinating, danger an adventure, a suspenseful task." - Ernst Junger

    "The anarch is oriented to facts, not ideas. He fights alone, as a free man, and would never dream of sacrificing himself to having one inadequacy supplant another and a new regime triumph over the old one. In this sense, he is closer to the philistine; the baker whose chief concern is to bake good bread; the peasant, who works his plow while armies march across his fields." - Ernst Junger

    "Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law." - Aleister Crowley

    "I have never grown out of the infantile belief that the universe was made for me to suck." - Aleister Crowley

    "I was asked to memorise what I did not understand; and, my memory being so good, it refused to be insulted in that manner." - Aleister Crowley

    "In the absence of willpower the most complete collection of virtues and talents is wholly worthless." - Aleister Crowley

    "Modern morality and manners suppress all natural instincts, keep people ignorant of the facts of nature and make them fighting drunk on bogey tales." - Aleister Crowley

    "Ordinary morality is only for ordinary people." - Aleister Crowley

    "Paganism is wholesome because it faces the facts of life." - Aleister Crowley

    "The joy of life consists in the exercise of one's energies, continual growth, constant change, the enjoyment of every new experience. To stop means simply to die. The eternal mistake of mankind is to set up an attainable ideal." - Aleister Crowley

    "The ordinary man looking at a mountain is like an illiterate person confronted with a Greek manuscript." - Aleister Crowley

    "The pious pretense that evil does not exist only makes it vague, enormous and menacing." - Aleister Crowley

    "The supreme satisfaction is to be able to despise one's neighbor and this fact goes far to account for religious intolerance. It is evidently consoling to reflect that the people next door are headed for hell." - Aleister Crowley

    "To read a newspaper is to refrain from reading something worth while. The first discipline of education must therefore be to refuse resolutely to feed the mind with canned chatter." - Aleister Crowley

    "A person should not be too honest. Straight trees are cut first and honest people are screwed first." - Kautilya

    "As soon as the fear approaches near, attack and destroy it." - Kautilya

    "Before you start some work, always ask yourself three questions - Why am I doing it, What the results might be and Will I be successful." - Kautilya

    "Books are as useful to a stupid person as a mirror is useful to a blind person." - Kautilya

    "Even if a snake is not poisonous, it should pretend to be venomous." - Kautilya

    "Give your wealth only to the worthy and never to others. The water of the sea received by the clouds is always sweet." - Kautilya

    "One whose knowledge is confined to books and whose wealth is in the possession of others, can use neither his knowledge nor wealth when the need for them arises." - Kautilya

    "The biggest guru-mantra is: never share your secrets with anybody. It will destroy you." - Kautilya

    "The life of an uneducated man is as useless as the tail of a dog which neither covers its rear end, nor protects it from the bites of insects." - Kautilya

    "There is poison in the fang of the serpent, in the mouth of the fly and in the sting of a scorpion; but the wicked man is saturated with it." - Kautilya

    "For God's sake, I hope there's no Goddess... (HK)"

    "Priscilla sure made a MAN out of Raki (HK)". You have to be a Claymore reader-watcher-fan, hehe, to understand

    -------------

    "O Merlin in your crystal cave
    Deep in the diamond of the day,
    Will there ever be a singer
    Whose music will smooth away
    The furrow drawn by Adam's finger
    Across the meadow and the wave?
    Or a runner who'll outrun
    Man's long shadow driving on,
    Burst through the gates of history,
    And hang the apple on the tree?
    Will your sorcery ever show
    The sleeping bride shut in her bower,
    The day wreathed in its mound of snow,
    And Time locked in his tower?"

    -Edwin Muir (used in The Crystal Cave by Mary Stewart, as my source of Muir's quote)

    "The internet’s perfect for all manner of things, but productive discussion ain’t one of them. It provides scant room for debate and infinite opportunities for fruitless point-scoring: the heady combination of perceived anonymity, gestated responses, random heckling and a notional “live audience” quickly conspire to create a “perfect storm” of perpetual bickering." - Charlie Brooker

    "I hold the wolf by the ears, I am in a dangerous situation and dare not let go" -an old saying in Latin

    "Your greatest hour will come right after your worst hour of despair. That is when you'll find out who you truly are."

    "The pump, you gotta experience it, It's one of the better highs in life. You don't need to shoot up for it, you don't need to snort it, all you gotta do is sweat for it"

    "Half of these personal trainers look like they need a personal trainer."

    "My philosophy is to fall in love with the workout and not the results of the workout."

    " Fitness is not about the vanity of what you see in the mirror, but the transformation of how you feel on the inside. It is a lifestyle and process that excels oneself in all theaters of life through a mind and body connection. When you are physically fit and feel in shape, everything else in life is easier."

    "At a party, someone asks if Tom’s here yet, and people are like “I dunno”, and no one knows if he’s here. Tom’s been at the party for 4 fukin hours. You know why Tom isn’t noticed, because Tom looks out of shape and not noticeable. If Tom was jacked, it’d be like, “Ye Tom’s right over there”."
