Quotes and counter quotes .

56 posts in this topic

 I thought this would be a neat idea for thread. You can cover most conspiracies and most idealism. Using established quotes you can point out intelligence and ignorance .

 

it amazes me how many thing said Years ago apply today.   I've always found that knowledge is best Learned when you hear it from someone that's already experienced it. 

 

 I'm going to list some of my favorite quotes, I would prefer if you respond to one of these quotes with the counter quote from a historical figure. But I would not be offended in the least if you coin a quote that will be remembered well into the future. 

 
 
 
Making a wrong decision is understandable. Refusing to search continually for learning is not.
 
Phil Crosby
 
 
 We are  all born ignorant but one must work very hard at remaining stupid .
 
Benjamin Franklin
 
 
The stupid neither forgive or forget;  The naïve forgive and forget ;  The wise forgive but never forget . 
 
Szass
 
 
 Life is tough, it's tougher when you're stupid .
 
John Wayne
 
 "The problem with socialism is sooner or later you run out of other peoples money ."
 
 Margaret Thatcher 
 
"Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery."
 
 
 Winston Churchill

"Culture makes people understand each other better. And if they understand each other better in their soul, it is easier to overcome the economic and political barriers. But first they have to understand that their neighbour is, in the end, just like them, with the same problems, the same questions."

And here it becomes evident that the bourgeoisie [capitalist] is unfit any longer to be the ruling class in society and to impose its conditions of existence upon society as an over-riding law. It is unfit to rule because it is incompetent to assure an existence to its slave within his slavery, because it cannot help letting him sink into such a state that it has to feed him instead of being fed by him. Society can no longer live under this bourgeoisie; in other words, its existence is no longer compatible with society.

 Yeah I know that was not an actual quote from him. You'll get used to me I like to crack a lot of jokes. If I offend you let me know I will apologize immediately. But unless I'm being attacked I'm almost completely about enjoying life and seeing the lighter side of  almost everything .

 

 I just find it so much easier to see things clearly if you look at it in a good mood as opposed to considering positions you from an angry mood .

 

 At this point most people would say cheers .

 

I have tried to Americanize that response so beers buddy!!! ✌

Okay, that makes sense.

I think I took your OP too seriously, LOL I thought you only wanted actual quotes, or our own original material.
