    I like quotes and figured we could have a thread on them here:). No comments, just quotes. One of my all time favorites is

    "In Italy, for 30 years under the Borgias, they had warfare, terror, murder and bloodshed, but they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love, they had 500 years of democracy and peace - and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock."

    Orson Welles

    'We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.'
    -Albert Einstein

    i just love einstein's quotes, he has so many good ones.
    and ofc i cannot forget the creator of the most interesting entity i have ever read about, the King in Yellow, my all-time favorite writers:

    'The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far. The sciences, each straining in its own direction, have hitherto harmed us little; but some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the light into the peace and safety of a new dark age.'
    - H.P. Lovecraft

    'Along the shore the cloud waves break,
    The twin suns sink behind the lake,
    The shadows lengthen
    In Carcosa.

    Strange is the night where black stars rise,
    And strange moons circle through the skies,
    But stranger still is
    Lost Carcosa.

    Songs that the Hyades shall sing,
    Where flap the tatters of the King,
    Must die unheard in
    Dim Carcosa.

    Song of my soul, my voice is dead,
    Die thou, unsung, as tears unshed
    Shall dry and die in
    Lost Carcosa.
    .'
    - Robert W. Chambers,​

    We know what we are, but know not what we may be.
    William Shakespeare

    The lineup that was shattered will one day return to dominate once again!

    What do I fear?
    I fear stagnation and lack of progress.
    I fear never reaching my potential and being average.
    I fear being forgotten... The past... Yesterday's news.
    I fear giving up and being passed by, going softly into that good night.
    I fear letting those I love down, letting myself down.
    I fear settling, giving in to the "that's just the way it is" mindset.
    I fear dying without leaving my mark.
    I fear not feeling these fears anymore and just floating along.
    These fears feed me, they nourish my drive.
    I love my fear.

    Its a bodybuilding motivation ... that i really like ...
    Btw ... love my fear ;)
