RE: Great quotes
A quote I heard in the Anime "Psycho Pass" yesterday.
"The fool learns from experience while the wise learns from history."

Edit: I went and got a more exact version of the quote by searching google:
"They say that fools learn from their experiences while the wise learn from history. I hope you're not a fool.” – Ginoza Nobuchika (Psycho-Pass)

I prefer fantasy, but I have to live in reality.

What's the difference?

RE: Great quotes
The quote I used for my senior quote in HS:

"If you put a frog into a pot of boiling water, it will immediately jump out. If you put a frog into cool water, and slowly raise it to a boil, it will stay in the water and slowly die."

I prefer fantasy, but I have to live in reality.

I don't 100% agree with the quote, but I think it's talking about pre-empting a bad situation before it happens based on reviewing historically similar scenarios...rather than actually going through the bad situation and learning from that first-hand experience how to avoid it in the future.

EDIT: Actually it could be applied to situations that are not bad as well, now that I think about it..
