'How happy are the blameless vessels lost,

The world forgetting by the world forgot,

Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind,

Each prayer excepted each wish resigned...'

I like a lot of Albert Einstein Quotes:

"God does not play dice."

"If God created the world, His primary concern was certainly not to make its understanding easy for us."

"I want to know how God created the world. I am not interested in this or that phenomenon, in the

spectrum of this or that element. I want to know His thoughts, the rest are details."

"Everything is determined, the beginning as well as the end, by forces over which we have no control.

It is determined for the insect as well as for the star. Human beings, vegetables, cosmic dust, we all

dance to a mysterious tune, intoned in the distance by a mysterious player."

These are just a few I'd already typed up on my computer, there are better ones, but I'm just being lazy. I recently just bought a book full of them. :rolleyes:

There's quite a few I like, however they are on a different PC that I can't access right now so I can't post them. I will say that a lot of memorable quotes that I like can be found in Sun Tzu's The Art of War.

I like funny quotes

Mines are the best naturally

"Wisdom is that thing you get after the event you needed it in occurs. If you are sitting there thinking "If only there was an almighty deity who has eternality and so can tell us the wisdom we need before the event occurs, or even better wisdom due to his divinity"...then you are on the right track"

" I hate how motivational speakers talk about "getting out of the box". my answer is to just make your box infinatly huge"

"Alot of christians seem to think love is an action. But when I ask them to show me what this action actually looks like they either 1. stand there confused and rethinking their idea or 2. lets just say my relationship with that person suddenly becomes a whole lot more complicated."

"One should guard against preaching to young people success in the customary form as the main aim in life.The most important motive for work in school and in life is pleasure in work, pleasure in its result, and the knowledge of the value of the result to the community." -Albert Einstein

"Education is what remains after one has forgotten everything he learned in school." -Albert Einstein

"Bravery is being aware of your humanity and acknowledging you're scared and still getting on and making decisions to do things. I've seen first-hand extreme bravery from people from the army and high mountains, and we're all like grapes. If you squeeze us you'll see what we're really made of."- Bear Grylls

“The joy of life consists in the exercise of one's energies, continual growth, constant change, the enjoyment of every new experience. To stop means simply to die. The eternal mistake of mankind is to set up an attainable ideal.”- Aleister Crowley

"You wonder why people choose fields away from the States when young people at home are drifting because no one wants to take time to listen to their problems. Ill tell you why I left. Because those Stateside young people have every opportunity to study, hear, and understand the Word of God in their own language, and these Indians have no opportunity whatsoever. I have had to make a cross of two logs, and lie down on it, to show the Indians what it means to crucify a man. When there is that much ignorance over here and so much knowledge and opportunity over there, I have no question in my mind why God sent me here. Those whimpering Stateside young people will wake up on the Day of Judgment condemned to worse fates than these demon-fearing Indians, because, having a Bible, they were bored with it---while these never heard of such a thing as writing."

"He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose."

"God, I pray Thee, light these idle sticks of my life, that I may burn for Thee. Consume my life, my God, for it is Thine. I seek not a long life, but a full one, like You, Lord Jesus."

These are three of my favs.. There's more but I'll put them up later

"Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgment that something else is more important than fear."

Ambrose Redmoon

"Dance is the hidden language of the soul."
