I've always liked that quote.
Nice. Honestly you are the first person that I've ever met who has heard it before.

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

Someone mentioned it to me when I was "stuck" in a bad job. It always remained with me and now I share it with others.

"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)

The only thing we learn from history is that we learn nothing from history. ~Friedrich Hegel

“I am quite sure now that often, very often, in matters concerning religion and politics a man’s reasoning powers are not above the monkey’s.”~Mark Twain
“Ocean: A body of water occupying about two-thirds of a world made for man - who has no gills.”~ Ambrose Bierce

@ minimalist...I love that quote!


What else is religion for, dear?

Atheism is NOT a Religion. It's A Personal Relationship With Reality!

That quote is not actually true, though.

RE: Great quotes
Political Correctness is the worse possible form of censorship. It barricades the truth until there is nothing left for it to mean anything, then it makes everyone blind. - Me.

Wow, I can't believe I didn't spot that. I've been told by friends I am a grammar Nazi too, so that's a shocker!

Yeah, I considered that it may not be. But the message still is great!
