Not sure if this thread already exits but here it is. Post your favorite quotes by your favorite authors or an author you like. I would love to read some original quotes from you guys too. Here's mine;

The trees entangle their arms and stretch upward into the sky, the budding leaves devour the light, adding depth to the forest's and the hunter does not notice the glare nor the claws of the beast biding in the darkness. Tonight is the night when the hunter will be hunted. This is the Sleeping Forest.

 

New rule: NO IMAGES!

Newer rule: If possible, give citations.


There is one quality which one must possess to win, and that is definiteness of purpose, the knowledge of what one wants, and a burning desire to possess it.

Prayer from Boondock Saints:

And shepherds we shall be. For thee,
my Lord, for thee. Power hath
descended forth from thy hand that
our feet may swiftly carry out thy
command. So we shall flow a river
forth to thee and teeming with souls
shall it ever be. E nomini patri, et
Fili e spiritu sancti.

God I love this movie!

I don't think i've seen that movie before.

Here's another one -

"The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well."
~Ralph Waldo Emerson.

Lol, i like that one.

"We were given: Two hands to hold. Two legs to walk. Two eyes to see. Two ears to listen. But why only one heart? Because the other was given to someone else. For us to find."

This is about Tomic's father refusing a practice match with hewitt on his behalf. : D

''Then we [Team Hewitt] told Juan Carlos what had happened and his coach said that if a leading player in Spain asked a junior to practise and the junior said no, that he would never get to hit with a senior player again, they would make sure he had all his funding and support from the national federation cut and that he would be, in the coach's words, 'strung up from a tree by his balls'.'

righteous anger *_*

I'll share some of my favourite ones.

"I wasn't drunk when I did viability calculations of Batoto." -Grumpy

"Man is least himself when he talks in his own person. Give him a mask, and he will tell you the truth." -Oscar Wilde

"Genius by birth, slacker by choice." -Anonymous (I think.)

"When your best case scenario is five kilometres of nuclear contamination, you know someone fucked up"
- godknows what source

Or the The Seventy Maxims of Maximally Effective Mercenaries are always good:
1. Pillage, then burn.
2. A Sergeant in motion outranks a Lieutenant who doesn't know what's going on.
3. An ordnance technician at a dead run outranks everybody.
4. Close air support covereth a multitude of sins.
5. Close air support and friendly fire should be easier to tell apart.
6. If violence wasn’t your last resort, you failed to resort to enough of it.
8. Mockery and derision have their place. Usually, it's on the far side of the airlock.
9. Never turn your back on an enemy.
10. Sometimes the only way out is through. . . through the hull.
11. Everything is air-droppable at least once.
12. A soft answer turneth away wrath. Once wrath is looking the other way, shoot it in the head.
13. Do unto others.
14. "Mad Science" means never stopping to ask "what's the worst thing that could happen?"
15. Only you can prevent friendly fire.
16. Your name is in the mouth of others: be sure it has teeth.
21. Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Take his fish away and tell him he's lucky just to be alive, and he'll figure out how to catch another one for you to take tomorrow.
27. Don't be afraid to be the first to resort to violence.
29. The enemy of my enemy is my enemy's enemy. No more. No less.
30. A little trust goes a long way. The less you use, the further you'll go.
31. Only cheaters prosper.
34. If you’re leaving scorch-marks, you need a bigger gun.
35. That which does not kill you has made a tactical error.
36. When the going gets tough, the tough call for close air support.
37. There is no 'overkill.' There is only 'open fire' and 'I need to reload.'
38. Just because it's easy for you doesn't mean it can't be hard on your clients.

Yes I know it's not 70, the rest have yet to have been revealed/thought of

Great quotes everyone! I love how much this thread has flourished.

~"All I have to do is keep my spirit, feelings and conscience like a sheet of blank paper, and let the Spirit and power of God write upon it what He pleases. When He writes, I will read; but if I read before He writes, I am very likely to be wrong."
