No, I'm pretty sure there is a difference.

RE: Great quotes
Meh, I don't need love to have good sex with someone. Everyone's different, I suppose. Love complicates things, just my take.

Be true to yourself. Heart

RE: Great quotes
I like a lot of them from Joseph Campbell.

“Follow your bliss and the universe will open doors for you where there were only walls.”

“Life has no meaning. Each of us has meaning and we bring it to life. It is a waste to be asking the question when you are the answer.”

“Life is without meaning. You bring the meaning to it. The meaning of life is whatever you ascribe it to be. Being alive is the meaning."

“All life stinks and you must embrace that with compassion.”

“How to get rid of ego as dictator and turn it into messenger and servant and scout, to be in your service, is the trick.”

“He who thinks he knows, doesn't know. He who knows that he doesn't know, knows.”

“The psychotic drowns in the same waters in which the mystic swims with delight.”

“God is a metaphor for that which transcends all levels of intellectual thought. It's as simple as that.”

“If you want to change the world, you have to change the metaphor.”

“God is the experience of looking at a tree and saying, 'Ah!”

“God is within you! You yourself are the creator. If you find that place within you from which you brought this thing about, you will be able to live with it and affirm it, perhaps even enjoy it, as your life.”

“All religions are true but none are literal.”

“I don't have to have faith, I have experience.”

“All the gods, all the heavens, all the hells, are within you.”

“The experience of eternity right here and now is the function of life. Heaven is not the place to have the experience; here is the place to have the experience.”

“When you realize that eternity is right here now, that it is within your possibility to experience the eternity of your own truth and being, then you grasp the following: That which you are was never born and will never die.”

And my personal favorite: “Computers are like Old Testament gods; lots of rules and no mercy.”

EDIT: Shit. Meant to post this in Brian's non-famous quotes thread. Ah well, they belong in both.

RE: Great quotes
"If there's a solution to your problems, why worry?
And if there's not one, why worry?"

Generally attributed to Zen and Buddhist tradition (including Dalai Lama).

And on the same topic:

"Worrying is like a rocking chair. It gives you something to do, but it doesn't get you anywhere."

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

RE: Great quotes
It's knowing I'm not shackled by forgotten words and bonds
and the ink stains that have dried upon some line,
that keeps you on the back roads, by the rivers of my memory, ever smiling, ever gentle on my mind.
~ John Hartford.

A new type of thinking is essential if mankind is to survive and move to higher levels. ~ Albert Einstein
