A list of some of my favorite quotes or lines, presented in no particular order and added to the list as I get or remember them.

*******************************************************************************
“Every now and then, say, “What the fuck.” “What the fuck” gives you freedom. Freedom brings opportunity. Opportunity makes your future.”
(From the 1983 film, “Risky Business”)
*******************************************************************************
“There is no “i” in team but there are 3 “u’s” in “shut the fuck up”!” (Author unknown)
*******************************************************************************
Respect isn’t never given. It often isn’t earned. It has to be demanded.
*******************************************************************************
“A man without tattoos is invisible to the Gods.” ~ Iban Proverb
*******************************************************************************
“If you love someone and they don’t love you back please don’t waste your time. In the end you’re only providing that person with the one thing they want: Attention. It’s better for you to move on and find someone WORTH loving and someone who will give love in return.
*******************************************************************************
“It’s easy to take off your cloths and have sex. People do it all the time! But opening up your soul to someone, letting them into your spirit, thoughts, fears, future, hopes and dreams…..THAT’S being naked!”
*******************************************************************************
From Facebook friend, Louis ‘Azucar Negro’ Farmer:
“History becomes insignificant when those affected by it refuse to remember it or fail to educate the newer generation. This why my page has a plethora of information pertaining to LGBT issues and people of the African Diaspora. “Each one teach one” as my parents used to say to me while introducing me as a child and teenager to people from the Black Panthers, supporters of Marcus Garvey, members of the Southern Christian Leadership, Nation of Islam and so many more. You don’t have to agree with each and every bit of their philosophies but take what resonates with you and KEEP it moving! Of course the LGBT component is due to my own efforts to transfer my racial pride and heritage to feeling equally comfortable with my sexuality!” (Friday, May 25, 2012)
*******************************************************************************
“Extreme situations occasionally require extreme measures, but at the end of the day, one’s methods are seldom questioned when they bring about the necessary results.”
*******************************************************************************
“Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.”
— Siddhartha Gautama (Buddha) 563-483 B.C.
or more succinctly from the Buddha:
“Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it – even if I have said it – unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense.”
*******************************************************************************
“Fickle people know nothing about new experiences, they just keep recycling past events as if they or the situation is still relevant.”
(Brian Slade, R&B/Pop/hip-hop recording artist – 201208:07)
*******************************************************************************
“AMERICA, I never said this journey would be easy, and I won’t promise that now. Yes, our path is harder, but it leads to a better place. Yes, our road is longer but we travel it together. We don’t turn back. We leave no one behind. We pull each other up. We draw strength from our victories. We learn from our mistakes, but we keep our eyes fixed on that distant horizon, knowing that providence is with us, and that we are surely blessed to be CITIZENS of the greatest nation on Earth.”
– President Barack Obama, Thursday, September 6, 2012, upon accepting the nomination for a second term at the Democratic National Convention (DNC) in Charlotte, NC
*******************************************************************************
“Talent is God-given. Be humble. Fame is man-given. Be grateful. Conceit is self-given. Be careful.”
*******************************************************************************
“Read between the lines to understand what people say ’cause blunt folks are an endangered species. ….”
(Bone Intell, Hip-Hop recording artist/Producer/DJ – 201212:19)
*******************************************************************************
“Against stupidity the gods themselves contend in vain.”
In original German: “Mit der Dummheit kämpfen Götter selbst vergers,” (Talbot, from the Schiller play, The Maid of Orleans)
(Friedrich von Schiller, 1801)
