I love quotes and am always looking for new, beautiful nuggets of wisdom or insight. Curious to see some of your favorite sentiments from history. Here are three of mine:

“And we should consider every day lost on which we have not danced at least once. And we should call every truth false which was not accompanied by at least one laugh.”

― Friedrich Nietzsche

“I am nothing.
I’ll never be anything.
I couldn’t want to be something.
Apart from that, I have in me all the dreams in the world.”

― Fernando Pessoa

“The Church says: the body is a sin.
Science says: the body is a machine.
Advertising says: The body is a business.
The Body says: I am a fiesta.”

― Eduardo Galeano

“I know one thing, that I know nothing, this is the beginning of wisdom” Socrates.

“An Idea has no power to create the corresponding concrete block” Plato.

Socrates represents Form Nihilism, Plato represents Substance Cynicism, this Duality of philosophical perspective holds a natural divorce and seamless marriage.

Adam Smith changed the world so Plato could stabilise it so Darwin can heal it so Jung can take it to new heights.

I like lots of quotes by the Dalai Lama. But theres a quote I will never forget, from a musician named Serj Tankian. “Pretending that we live doesnt make us alive”

We fell them down and turn them into paper,
That we may record our emptiness.”

The harness of a waterfall is the most economical way to draw energy from the sun.    Nikolai Tesla

Do not walk in front of me: for I will not fallow; do not walk behind me, for I will not lead; Instead walk besides me as a friend. – Albert Camaus                                                                                                                           If I have seen farther then others its by standing on the shoulder’s of giants.             – Issiac Newton.                                                                                                                       By far these few quotes, have brought cogitating epiphany’s. Into my life as well as others and I believe. That when we probe our own minds, have faith in all our beliefs, and surmise our sentient being. We epitomize our Higher existence. Hindsight is always 20-20, thereby, why waste another nanosecond. Get up and balter like the ubitiqious being you are. Departing wisdom, “The ones who saw others dancing in the distance, we thought to be crazied, because I don’t not hear the music”- paraphrase Nitszchi. Namasta

Hey. Could we do that again? I know we haven’t met, but I don’t want to be an ant, you know? I mean, it’s like we go through life with our antennas bouncing off one another, continuously on ant auto-pilot with nothing really human required of us. Stop. Go. Walk here. Drive there. All action basically for survival. All communication simply to keep this ant colony buzzing along in an efficient polite manner. “Here’s your change.” “Paper or plastic?” “Credit or debit?” “You want ketchup with that?” I don’t want a straw, I want real human moments. I want to see you. I want you to see me. I don’t want to give that up. I don’t want to be an ant, you know? ~Waking Life

More and more becomes possible, Because nothing becomes actual. ~Kierkegaard

This one stopped my world in its tracks when I first read it. 

“You are not IN the universe, you ARE the universe, an intrinsic part of it. Ultimately you are not a person, but a focal point where the universe is becoming conscious of itself. What an amazing miracle.”
