"This class is not a prison; In prison there's hope." ~poster on the wall in my english class
"What's neccesary in a fight isn't fear. Nothing can be born from that. If you dodge, 'I won't let them cut me.' If you protect someone, 'I won't let them die.' If you attack, 'I'll cut them.'" ~Bleach
Those who danced were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music. Nietzsche
Academic chairs are many, but wise and noble teachers are few; lecture-rooms are numerous and large, but the number of young people who genuinely thirst after truth and justice is small. Albert Einstien
The average human looks without seeing, listens without hearing, touches without feeling, eats without tasting, moves without physical awareness, inhales without awareness of odour or fragrance and talks without thinking. Leonardo Da Vinci
I love quotes. One of my favorites is this: "I unconsciously decided that, even if it wasn't an ideal world, it should be. So I painted only the ideal aspects of it - pictures in which there are no drunken slatterns or self-centered mothers... only foxy grandpas who played baseball with the kids and boys who fished from logs and got up circuses in the backyard."~ Norman Rockwell 1894-1978
I admire Rockwell not only for his incredible talent, but his outlook. He didn't believe on capitalizing on destruction and negativity, like we do in today's world. And we are the worse for it.
The other quote I just saw yesterday follows a similar theme: “The hardest job kids face today is learning good manners without seeing any.”~ Fred Astaire
1. (look in my sig) 2. "Steal the book for ransom, and you'll be rich enough to lounge on an island beach. Steal the book for me, and you can buy the beach..., and the island..., and the world." ~Eris from Sinbad:legend of the seven seas. 3. "above all, it is a matter of loving art, not understanding it."~idk 4. "DON'T YOU HURT MY DAUGHTER YOU BITCH!!!" ~Molly Weasley from Harry Potter 5. "Never underestimate a backwoods cajun!" Nick Gautier from the Chronicles of Nick 6. *strikes the pose*"... I'm Batman!..." Dean Winchester from Supernatural 7. "Hey,... Assbut!" Castiel from Supernatural 8. "Did you just Molotov Michael... with Holy Fire?" Lucifer as Sam Winchester from Supernatural 9. "Idjits." Bobby Singer from supernatural (multiple times) 10. "Driver picks the music, Shotgun shuts his cakehole." Dean Winchester from Supernatural
I GOTS MULTIPLES! "If it's stupid but works, it isn't stupid" - idk "A dream is a goal without a plan" -idk "If you're not failing every now and again, it's a sure sign that you're not trying anything very innovative" -Woody Allen "Start by doing what is necessary, then do what is possible, and suddenly you are doing the impossible." -St. Francis of Assisi "If you tell people where to go, but not how to get there, you'll be amazed at the results" -George S. Patton "It is generally inadvisable to eject directly over the area you just bombed" -US Air Force Manual Old World War II saying: "When the British shoot, the Germans duck, when the Germans shoot, the British duck, when the Americans shoot, everybody ducks."
And i could go on and on and on, but we'll just stop there.
Oh, I think there is a good possibility they were inspired by that line then, seeing how they named several characters partially after US presidents and politicians and stuff. Anyway, thanks for bringing it up as I like these kind parallels. Even though I think the quotes both have a slightly different concepts.
