Quotes

Ok guys, I just made my screen savers one of those that scrolls a quote across the screen. My problem is, I’m having a hard time thinking of the all time T-boosting quote to use. Lets hear some ideas.

The classic line from Gladiator, “What we do in life, echos in eternity.”

The one true meaning of FEAR is…Fuck Everything And Run…Don’t show your teeth if you can’t bite…The more we prepare during peacetime the less we bleed in battle!

My favorite quotes usually have no relevance to anything, but I like 'em anyway.
“Your best? Losers always whine about their best. Winners go home and fuck the prom queen.” -the Rock
“You ever dance with the devil in the pale moon light?” - The Joker, in Batman
“Action is eloquence” -shakespeare
“Are you gonna bark all day little doggie, or are you gonna bite?” - Reservoir Dogs

“Feels like Deca!” -Bill Phillips

“Those who dare to fail miserably can achieve greatly.” - Robert Kennedy To avoid failure; Say nothing, do nothing, be nothing… - Anonymous.

Here are some of my favorites: “Pain is just weakness leaving the body” “The only easy day was yesterday” “May God have mercy on my enemies, because I won’t” “We must either find a way or make one.”…hope that helps, they always get me pumped and ready to kick ass!

Just go rent/buy “The Outlaw Josey Wales.” Clint Eastwood is of course the star, if you didn’t know that are you really a man? Anyway, here are a few of the movies best quotes:
Josey Wales : “You a bounty hunter?” Bounty Hunter : “A man’s got to do something for a living these days.”
Josey Wales : “Dying ain’t much of a living, boy.” Then of course he blows the guy away…After killing to guys:Boy : “Wish we had time to bury them fellas.”
Josey Wales : “The hell with them fellas. Buzzards gotta eat…same as worms.”…Josey Wales : “Whenever I get to liking some one they ain’t around long.”
Chief : “I noticed when you get to disliking someone they around for long neither.”…“When things look bad, and it looks like you’re not gonna make it, then you gotta get mean. I mean plumb mad dog mean. Cause if you lose your head and you give up, then you neither live nor win, that’s just the way it is.”…“Are you gonna pull those pistols or whistle Dixie?”

The best ever is “Blow it out your ass.”

" there comes a time in every man’s life when he must spit in his hands,hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats"… or something to that effect, search the web for H.L Mencken; he has some of the best, if not most famous quotes going.

I will endure the pain that goes with achievement and glory,
rather than accept the contentment that goes with mediocrity.

there was a quote in a t-mag article that i liked dont remember the article but it something like ‘it is dangerous to be in the right when the recognized authorities are in the wrong’ Voltaire

My two favorites, but they are kind of long for a screen saver: “Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up and knows that if it is to live, it must be faster than the fastest lion. Every morning, a lion wakes up, and knows that if it is to eat, it must be faster than the slowest gazelle. Whether you are a lion or a gazelle, when the sun comes up, you better be running.” - Kenyan Proverb

"We few, we happy few, we band of brothers; For he today that sheds his blood with me shall be my brother" - Shakespeare, King Henry V (IV,iii,60)

and if you are Christian, there’s the one from either Romans or Phillipians that everybody writes on their weight belts. A little help here?

or How about this one: “Gladiator Sucks and Russell Crowe is a big Australian Pussy”

“Those who cling to life die, and those who defy death live” -Uyesugi Kenshin

“Don’t have $100 shoes and a ten cent squat” - LOuie Simmons

don’t let your mouth right a check your ass can’t cash.

“The scars will take me far, they always do.”

“I think about the meaning of pain. Pain is personal. It really belongs to the one feeling it. Probably the only thing that is your own. I like mine.”

“Keep your blood clean, your body lean, and your mind sharp.”

All from the man: Henry Rollins

“Nothing would more contribute to make a man wise than to have always an enemy in view.” (Lord Halifax) “Democracy, I do not conceive that ever God did ordain as a fit government either for church or commonwealth. If the people be governors, who shall be governed?” (John Cotton) “Our ancestors, in their wisdom, considered that all women, because of their innate weakness, should be under the control of guardians.”(Cicero) “…it is appropriate that the noblest race should rule over all the others; the Roman people was the noblest; therefore it was appropriate that they should rule over all the others.” (Dante Alighieri)

Here’s a couple:
“Power is nothing without control.”

“There is no spoon.” from The Matrix

“I’ve seen monkey shit fights at the city zoo more organized than this!” from The Replacements.

Rafael I hope you werent trying to insult Australians with that reply about Russel Crowe. Australians arent pussys
By the way he’s a New Zealander.
