RE: Great quotes
On the subject of religion, some other Lao Tzu quotes that seem germane to the process of stepping back from it:

"I do not concern myself with gods and spirits either good or evil nor do I serve any."

"The key to growth is the introduction of higher dimensions of consciousness into our awareness."

"When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be."

Phil

RE: Great quotes
here's my favourite quote of all time though:

"It takes a lot of money to look this cheap."

Aw ...V for Vandetta ^^...swoon


Here's a quote that I fucking hate...

"A friend in need is a friend indeed."

Um, no. If someone only hits you up when they're "in need," how is that a friend? You're the friend. Lol Big Grin

Be true to yourself. Heart

RE: Great quotes
The good v for vendetta quote for me is "the people should not be afraid of their government, the government should be afraid of the people". May have come from somewhere else originally though.

I hope that the world turns, and things get better. But what I hope most of all is that you understand what I mean when I tell you that, even though I do not know you, and even though I may never meet you, laugh with you, cry with you, or kiss you, I love you. With all my heart, I love you. - V for Vendetta

It means that if someone is a friend while you're in need they are a real friend as opposed to those who are only friends when things are going well for you.

Probably Thomas Jefferson, possibly Thomas Paine or Sam Adams.

"When government fears the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny."

RE: Great quotes
Chas; I see your Jefferson and raise you a Paine:

"Government, even in its best state, is but a necessary evil; in its worst state, an intolerable one."

The people closely associated with the namesake of female canines are suffering from a nondescript form of lunacy.
