RE: Great quotes
"I don't like dying at all. It's the last thing I'm going to do." - Roberto Benigni

The original is: "Morire non mi piace per niente. È l'ultima cosa che farò."

孤独 - The Out Crowd
Life is a flash of light between two eternities of darkness.

Too bad I can't like this twice. Once for the actual quote, and twice for it being in Italian. Cool Grazie.

Be true to yourself. Heart

RE: Great quotes
Got home from my little weekend excursion exhausted so I started listening to Steven Wright. A few quotes:

"When I die, I'm leaving my body to science fiction."

"I intend to live forever. So far, so good."

"If it's a penny for your thoughts and you put in your two cents, then someone, somewhere is making a penny."

"If you are in a spaceship that is traveling at the speed of light, and you turn on the headlights, does anything happen?"

"The things I talk about and explain couldn't happen - yet, they don't seem impossible - you could say I talk about the world in an abstract perspective. But then, the world is basically insane - and it's trying to pass itself off as being a sane place. I show it for what it is."

"I have two pairs of reading glasses. One pair is for reading fiction, the other for non-fiction. I've read the Bible twice wearing each pair, and it's the same."

"Sometimes I wish my first word was 'quote,' so that on my death bed, my last words could be 'end quote.'"

"I have an existential map. It has 'You are here' written all over it."

RE: Great quotes
Chi più sa, meno crede.
(english) The more you know, the less you believe.

Some good quotes here:

http://www.askatheists.com/atheist-quotes

“Truth does not demand belief. Scientists do not join hands every Sunday, singing, yes, gravity is real! I will have faith! I will be strong! I believe in my heart that what goes up, up, up, must come down, down, down. Amen! If they did, we would think they were pretty insecure about it.”

I like that...knowledge = reality...beliefs don't. Although, we can ''believe'' in something that is based in reality, I suppose.

Be true to yourself. Heart

Are you italian?

My quote is:

“Now, now my good man, this is no time to be making enemies."
(Voltaire on his deathbed in response to a priest asking him that he renounce Satan.)
