ANUS has been a great place for me to collect great quotes. Plenty of which I use as examples in conversations with people. Post some good ones (preferably from outside ANUS though).
"we are afraid of people smarter than us, so we make fun of them."
"Those who are skilled in combat do not become angered,
those who are skilled at winning do not become afraid.
Thus the wise win before the fight, while the ignorant fight to win."
"Life is a philosophical joke."
"Inaction is as evil as an evil action."
"Be who you are and say what you feel cause people who mind don't matter, and people who
matter don't mind."
"As long as we believe that someone else has the power to make us happy then we are setting ourselves up to be victims"
The main weapon of the police is to apear like they are really strong and organised.
If you think about it, say you were comitting a crime, like, growing dope in your house.
How would a cop know? How does a policeman have any better idea on exactly what is going on
than anyone else?
The police are just normal people, and they slack off at their jobs like you or me.
They just say all of this shit to keep the idea up that they are really strong, and know
exactly what is going on everywhere.
In reality, it is a bunch of guys recieving phone calls, fighting about who is going to go
and check it out, getting up, driving to a house, and telling a drunk man to 'move along'."
"We are sacrificing tomorrow to cater for the needs of today."
"Something to think about!
If Earth's population was shrunk into a village of just 100 people - with all the human
ratios existing in the world still remaining - what would this tiny, diverse village look
like? That's exactly what Phillip M. Harter, a medical doctor at Stanford University
School of Medicine, attempted to figure out. This is what he found:
57 would be Asian
21 would be European
14 would be from the Western Hemisphere
8 would be African
52 would be female
48 would be male
70 would be non-Christian
30 would be Christian
30 would be white
70 would be nonwhite
89 would be heterosexual
11 would be homosexual
6 people would possess 59 percent of the entire worlds wealth, and 5 would be from the
80 would live in substandard housing
70 would be unable to read
50 would suffer from malnutrition
1 would be near death.
3 would be pregnant
1 would have a college education
1 would own a computer"
"The philosophy of charles schultz
The following is the philosophy of Charles Schultz, the creator of the
"Peanuts" comic strip. You don't have to actually answer the questions. Just
read the e-mail straight through, and you'll get the point.
1. Name the five wealthiest people in the world.
2. Name the last five Heisman trophy winners.
3. Name the last five winners of the Miss America.
4. Name ten people who have won the Nobel or Pulitzer Prize.
5. Name the last half dozen Academy Award winner for best actor and actress.
6. Name the last decade's worth of World Series winners.
How did you do?
The point is, none of us remember the headliners of yesterday. These are no
second-rate achievers. They are the best in their fields. But the applause
dies. Awards tarnish. Achievements are forgotten. Accolades and
certificates are buried with their owners.
Here's another quiz. See how you do on this one:
1. List a few teachers who aided your journey through school.
2. Name three friends who have helped you through a difficult time.
3. Name five people who have taught you something worthwhile.
4. Think of a few people who have made you feel appreciated and special.
5. Think of five people you enjoy spending time with.
The lesson: The people who make a difference in your life are not the ones
with the most credentials, the most money, or the most awards. They are the
ones that care.
Pass this on to those people who have made a difference in your life."
