Here's a thread for posting quotations you like. It doesn't matter what the context is, who or what the source is, as long as it isn't you. :P

Quote:
"You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something in your life."

Quote:
"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience."
-C.S. Lewis, God in the Dock: Essays on Theology and Ethics

Quote:
"[Property] ... in its larger and juster meaning ... embraces every thing to which a man may attach a value and have a right; and which leaves to every one else the like advantage. In the former sense, a man's land, or merchandize, or money is called his property. In the latter sense, a man has a property in his opinions and the free communication of them. He has a property of peculiar value in his religious opinions, and in the profession and practice dictated by them. He has a property very dear to him in the safety and liberty of his person. He has an equal property in the free use of his faculties and free choice of the objects on which to employ them. In a word, as a man is said to have a right to his property, he may be equally said to have a property in his rights. ... Government is instituted to protect property of every sort; as well that which lies in the various rights of individuals, as that which the term particularly expresses. This being the end of government, that alone is a just government, which impartially secures to every man, whatever is his own. ... That is not a just government, nor is property secure under it, where the property which a man has in his personal safety and personal liberty, is violated by arbitrary seizures of one class of citizens for the service of the rest. ... That is not a just government, nor is property secure under it, where arbitrary restrictions, exemptions, and monopolies deny to part of its citizens the free use of their faculties, and free choice of their occupations, which not only constitute their property in the general sense of the word; but are the means of acquiring property strictly so called...."
-James Madison, 1792

If sex and creativity are often seen by dictators as subversive
activities, it’s because they lead to the knowledge that you own
your own body (and with it your own voice), and that’s the most
revolutionary insight of all.

[Reveal] Spoiler: Need to see X-Men: First Class for this to make sense
Quote:
I'm going to count to three. And I'm going to move the coin.


- Erik Lensherr (Magneto), X-Men: First Class.


This is probably one of the most powerful lines I've ever heard delivered in a film. Michael Fassbender is just an amazing actor.

Hell yeah. I went back and watched that movie again last week, and was even more impressed with it than when I first saw it (back in 2011).

Quote:
The man of system ... is apt to be very wise in his own conceit; and is often so enamoured with the supposed beauty of his own ideal plan of government, that he cannot suffer the smallest deviation from any part of it. He goes on to establish it completely and in all its parts, without any regard either to the great interests or to the strong prejudices which may oppose it. He seems to imagine that he can arrange the different members of a great society with as much ease as the hand arranges the different pieces upon a chess-board...
-Adam Smith, The Theory of Moral Sentiments, 1759

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do, so throw off the bowlines, sail away from safe harbor, catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore, Dream, Discover. —Mark Twain

"I've...seen things, you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire, off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark, near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those...moments...will be lost, in time, like tears in rain."
-Roy Batty, Blade Runner
