Nothing is true. Everything is permitted.

Do not feel envious of the happiness of those who live in a fool's paradise, for only a fool will think that it is happiness.
Even if I can be carefree and get laughter from the most stupidest of things, I have a strange policy on my head for myself to always better myself, to not accept being worse than someone at something. I know my interpretation of the quote above is completely wrong, but it was that quote which made me think of that. I don't like being over-joyed over something I've done when I know someone else is doing it better than me, and when I know that I can get to his level by trying. I always want to come out on top if I'm passionate about something. This has helped but also given consequences in the past.

After I'm dead, I would rather people ask why I have no monument, then why I have one.
I would rather do something great and have less people know me for it rather than be famed for something I didn't do. I guess again I've interpreted the quote differently than most people but you know what, it's what you think that counts. I say that quotes are only there to make you think; how you take the message is up to you.

The quote by Immortal Technique "I see the world beyond the white and the black"

Overlooking colour and race and seeing each other as one, as brothers and sisters.

The world is bleeding as it is we do not need more hate. We do not need black or Latino or Asian women to believe they are not beautiful because they are not white. I've seen this happen a lot of times and countless of times it hurts. So with that said all women are beautiful and deserve to feel beautiful and blessed because they are all unique in their own exquisite ways.

I'd like to add a knew quote to my current list of one (haha).

You know what, it's what you think that counts. I say that quotes are only there to make you think; how you take the message is up to you. - Scyke

It just sums everything up perfectly if you ask me. We shouldn't mindlessly abide the norms it is our own interpretation of things that counts and it is up to us what we do with that interpretation. Long live the philosopher Scyke!

So many good Immortal Technique quotes, so little time.

Some of my favorite quotes of all time are from one single song.

"The mind of a child is where the revolution begins."

"Ignorance is venomous and murders the soul, spreading like a virus running rampant out of control."

"If the solution has never been to look in yourself, how is it that you expect to find in anywhere else?"

"Even though we survived through the struggle that made us, we still look at ourselves through the eyes of people that hate us."

"Maze-treaders, whose vision ahead and behind is severely constricted and fragmented, suffer confusion, whereas maze-viewers, who see the pattern whole, from above or in a diagram, are dazzled by its complex artistry. What you see depends on where you stand, and thus, at one and the same time, labyrinths are single (there is one physical structure) and double; they simultaneously incorporate order and disorder, clarity and confusion, unity and multiplicity, artistry and chaos. They may be perceived as a path (a linear but circuitous passage to a goal) or as a pattern (a complete symmetrical design)..Our perception of labyrinths is thus intrinsically unstable: change your perspective and the labyrinth seems to change."

Kinda long but it encapsulates how I experience and view the world, its problems, and its people- and also my personal issues, fears, opinions, and judgments.

Do not weep; do not wax indignant. Understand.
— Baruch Spinoza
I found myself to embody or at least subscribe to this before I discovered the quote. I have since remembered it due to, perhaps, it being reasonably succinct and as how I might write something. I find the only thing I can do in life which seems meaningful is be wise; having the patience to observe fully and so understand everything within one's experience is, I suppose, an unspeakable joy. Again, the quote hasn't directed me; I've just come across it and find it an adequate descriptor for my life's directive.


One should not utter a word about his own inadequacies. In the Oko it says: "When a man lets out a single word, the long and short of him will be known."
— Takeda Nobushige
Rather difficult to elaborate on, without doing what it says not to. I hate for my sincerity to be devalued by petty folk with sight for nothing but aberrance in me.

i do have some special quotes which is favorite but i don't live by a special one....i find new quotes i make my own quotes i hear other people saying quotes i like..so i end up having lots of quotes i remember with a situation!!

The Most beautiful days are the ones we haven't lived yet and the most beautiful dreams are those we haven't achieve still and the most hurtful pains are that ones we haven't suffer yet....if only i knew what's coming in life next, i would've left for myself some words to remember.....stay strong me!..

Original Quote by Paul Eluard and i added a few words myself to it...first time i saw that was written by my father on his college book..loooong time ago!! it felt like the book was talking to me! (:

Both of the following are both education based and ever since I first heard of them, I've always believed in them and known them to be completely true.

Knowledge Is Power - Sir Francis Bacon
A child educated only at school is an uneducated child - George Santayana

Knowledge of course brings us power and that can never be disproved. It can obviously bring us the kind of power which can bring evil deeds upon the world but it can also foster friendships and loving across the world aswell. If I didn't have knowledge about a certain race/creed/person etc. then I may keep away from it/them as I don't know what could happen. If I gather the relevant knowledge first, I can confront it with the understanding and great things could potentially blossom from that.

Onto the next quote. When I was going through school, my dad always used to make me read encyclopaedias rather than going out and playing with friends. Even though it was a forced education, I don't regret that it happened at all because it taught me so many things about the world and it's cultures/traditions that I would have never have learnt about in school. Even since leaving school, in my spare time I'll often just research things about the past just because I find it all fascinating.

That's the reasons why I've always believed in those quotes and they've never done me wrong.

Growing old is mandatory. Growing up is optional.

Not sure who said it but they are right in many ways. I don't take this to mean we should act childish throughout our whole lives. I take this in the sense that we will get older and life is going to change on us, this is inevitable, but that is no reason to let go of what makes us happy, be it our friends or our hobbies. If you let go of these things you may be alive but you aren't living.

For me it's just one of the most common and generic quotes: "never give up"

I have given up many times in my life and I have always regretted it. Now I keep going no matter what knowing even if I keep failing, at least I am trying.

Also known as Carpe diem. That's really the only quote I need, even though I don't always live by it and even though I've heard tons of other thoughtful things being said through my life.

"Of course you are uncertain, Kalamas. Of course you are in doubt. When there are reasons for doubt, uncertainty is born. So in this case, Kalamas, don't go by reports, by legends, by traditions, by scripture, by logical conjecture, by inference, by analogies, by agreement through pondering views, by probability, or by the thought, 'This contemplative is our teacher.' When you know for yourselves that, 'These qualities are unskillful; these qualities are blameworthy; these qualities are criticized by the wise; these qualities, when adopted & carried out, lead to harm & to suffering' — then you should abandon them."



This mean that traditions are not to be followed simply because they are traditions. Reports such as historical accounts or news are not to be followed simply because the source seems reliable. One's own preferences are not to be followed simply because they seem logical or resonate with one's feelings. Instead, any view or belief must be tested by the results it yields when put into practice; and to guard against the possibility of any bias or limitations in one's understanding of those results they must further be checked against the experience of people who are wise.
