These are mine.

"Most people are unable to tolerate free speech because they are unable to tolerate correct facts that offend them. For example, if you correctly prove that something is bullshit, then someone with that belief will infringe on your free speech by labeling your proof as hate speech"

"No amount of human ingenuity and technology can possibly overturn the laws of nature. The laws that govern this planet. Those laws are immutable, real and science has never been able to overturn them. I believe the greatest arrogance of mankind is his belief that he can use technology to overturn the laws of nature and somehow become gods"

"Not even God is omnipotent because not even He can help cure stupidity"

"The only sin I can't forgive is if you kill my sister, mother or father. As long as you don't kill or harm my family members, I'm fine with you. You can do anything to me, and I can eventually forgive you".

"Rational people believe in irrational things. Just because someone believes in irrational nonsense like Christianity or Islam doesn't make them irrational. In fact, they could be very rational. Pretty much everyone has irrational beliefs, but that doesn't necessarily make irrational. "

"Praying to God doesn't work because He either doesn't exist, or he doesn't give a damn about an insignificant mere human like you"

"Human beings incorrectly think that it was either capitalism or human ingenuity that created the modern world, but what really created the modern world is oil and other fossil fuels. If you take the oil away, the modern world quite literally collapses because oil is the irreplaceable edifice the modern world is founded upon. Prove me wrong."

"Capitalism is a joke because it cares more about money than anything else. That's why they outsourced jobs from the USA to China. The workers in the China have lower wages, and therefore capitalists can make more profit from making their shit from China than the USA where workers have higher wages. "

"Most moderators on forums are idiots who have no idea what's the difference between trolling and having an offensive opinion many people disagree with. They will ban you for "trolling" if your opinion is too politically incorrect even if it is factually correct. In short, moderators are pussies with too much power at their finger tips because they can ban whomever they like for whatever reason."

"Anarchism and libertarianism sure beats the crap out of the big-brother-esque bullshit we have as our phoney "democratic" and "free" government."

So what are your favorite person quotes? I hope I didn't offend anyone with these quotes. But I don't care too much about offending a few people, because I have the free speech to say things that might unintentionally offend some people.

Empty pockets never make the grade.
Explore the depths of your depravity.
Never trust what is afraid to trust you back.
It wasn't the people who sold candles that invented the light bulb.
I use to care, now I take a pill for that.
I reject your reality and substitute my own.

Everyone says it's better not to know. It's because awareness became a sickness in this world. - Tablo

Everyone says that time is the remedy. It's because the present time is a sickness in this world. - Tablo

I cheated. They're lyrics, not quotes, but lyrics are quotes in music, right?

Otherwise, I don't really recall any quotes I've favored.

"Character" is how you treat people who can do absolutely nothing for you.



I thought the strong were supposed to protect the weak, isn't that how it is in a man's world?

"The windows went dark first with rain and then snow, and then the days then the years ran together, and not one mattered more than another, and not one mattered."

"Before enlightenment, carry water and chop wood. After enlightenment, carry water and chop wood."

"All I know is that I know nothing."

"Whiskey, like a beautiful woman, demands appreciation. You gaze first, then it's time to drink."

"A book is made from a tree. It is an assemblage of flat, flexible parts (still called "leaves") imprinted with dark pigmented squiggles. One glance at it and you hear the voice of another person, perhaps someone dead for thousands of years. Across the millennia, the author is speaking, clearly and silently, inside your head, directly to you. Writing is perhaps the greatest of human inventions, binding together people, citizens of distant epochs, who never knew one another. Books break the shackles of time ― proof that humans can work magic."

"Eat, drink, move your bowels, pass water and when you're tired, go and lie down. The ignorant will laugh but the wise will understand."

"There is beauty even in the breakdown."

"Conjuring up the past is not remembering. It is replacing."

"The dose makes the poison."

"After the third offense, even the Buddha himself grows angry."

"Give them nothing, but take from them everything."

"A lion does not concern himself with the opinion of a sheep."

"If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together."

"Two things define you: your patience when you have nothing and your attitude when you have everything."

"When you make it to the top, send down the elevator."

Most, but that's still helpful in understanding the person.

“A donkey laden with books is neither an intellectual nor a wise man. Empty of essence, what learning has he whether upon him is firewood or book?” - Abū-Muhammad Muslih al-Dīn bin Abdallāh Shīrāzī

"Of what use is a philosopher who doesn't hurt anyone's feelings?" - Diogenes

"We have two ears and one tongue so that we would listen more and talk less" Diogenes

"I love the man that can smile in trouble, can gather strength from distress, and grow brave by reflection." - Thomas Paine

“One ever feels his twoness, -- an American, a Negro; two souls, two thoughts, two unreconciled strivings; two warring ideals in one dark body, whose strenth alone keeps it from being torn asunder.” W.E.B Du Bois

"Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect" - Samuel "Mark Twain" Clemens

Here are a few more quotes.

"Being open-minded is different from being gullible in that open-minded people only accept facts that are supported by overwhelming evidence whereas gullible people accept "facts" that aren't even supported by overwhelming evidence. Gullible people believe in whatever feels good and happy, and engage in wishful thinking, naivety and delusion. These people may even believe in nonsense despite the fact that their beliefs have been refuted over and over again. Gullible people are unable to accept bad news even though the evidence for the bad news is overwhelming"

"There is nothing in any combination, anywhere, that can replace the edifice built by fossil fuels" by Michael Ruppert

"All of these people exist on this planet only because of oil. That's it. So it is axiomatic if you take the oil away, the population must also go away. Mother nature is very cruel and unforgiving. Whenever there is an excess in population, mother nature will swiftly deal with it by removing the excess population in the most inhumane ways"

"The truth will set you free, but it will also make you sick".

"If you don't understand peak oil and its consequences, then you can't say you understand anything about politics, economics and how the world functions"

"Never argue with a fool because you will have to snoop down to the same level as the fool"

"Mainstream media is a joke. Mainstream media is nothing more than the propaganda machine of the state, government and big corporations."

"Most people are scientifically illiterate fools. Most people in politics are also scientifically illiterate fools. Most politicians are just shills of big corporations, and their only purpose is to make as much money as possible for big corporations"

"The attacks of 911 are directly related to peak oil because the attacks allowed the US government to come up with an excuse for invading the oil-rich Middle East. The USA already had plans for invading the Middle East for oil several years before 911. That' s because they needed to invade the Middle East to secure the last greatest reserves of oil left on the planet. Oil is power on this planet because everything in your economy and agriculture revolves around oil. Without oil, your society will quite literally collapse"
