"I know of no greater sin than to oppress the innocent in the name of God." - Mohandas Gandhi
"My goal is friendship with the whole word and I can combine the greatest love with the greatest opposition to wrong." - ibid.
"Real education consists in drawing the best out of yourself. What better book can there be than the book of humanity?" - idib.
And, as a politically relevant counterpoint (to anyone living in the US, at least...)
"What good fortune for those in power that people do not think." - Adolph Hitler.
"Why of course the people don't want war ... But after all it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship ...Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger." - Hermann Goering.
To Gandhi is where we should be going, and to Goering is where we are being led.
**he [God, i'm guessing] said: pain is the mother of change; the rain must flow, so the seeds of joy might grow don't be afraid find shelter in me the road to greatness through the valley of adversity i felt the light: as he proceeded to drop the gem, these little children, the world we must recieve like them i just smiled and thanked him for the cards he dealt and since then the rain i never felt.
**will smith: the rain (half the last verse)** i know i know - my favourite quote is from a will smith song, but hey - its nice innit?
it might sound silly, but hey, I love japanese comics, and the songs that come with them are just the best as well so my favorite beyond favorite quotes come from two of those songs (one of them is my signature). The first one is from the opening song of Diginom (though I don't really like the anime): Stay shigachi na imeeji darake no tayorinai tsubasa demo Kitto toberu sa on my love (Even with these unreliable wings, stained with images that tend to stay, I am sure we can fly, on my love)
And the second one is from Kamikaze Kaitou Jeanne (which I love both the manga and the anime): Dive into Shine Fukai yami mo Hikari ni kawaru, sono shunkan, shinjiteru kara (Dive into shine, even a deep darkness changes into shine, because I am believing the moment)

i cant think of many right of my head but i like:
"Luke, you're going to find that many of the truth's we cling to, depend greatly on out own point of veiw" --Star War's The Return of the Jedi.
"In an age of nothing, at a time when we stand at the brink of out own destruction - strengthen your belief in yourslf, in the furure of humanity, in the things of this world which cannot easily be perseived. Awaken that which lies dormant now within your soul. re-ignite the flame of youre consciousness, and measure the strength of your conviction. Reveal the lie. Renounce your hatred. Seek, find, and embrace the truth's you are fortunate enough to discover. Cherish them, use them to anchor you in the sea of chaos that is the world we live in. When twilight draws near, when you are pushed to the very limits of your soul. When it seems that all you have left are the dead remnants of the fabric of your life-Believe" --Disturbed
"As memory may be a paradise from which we cannot be driven, it may also be a hell from which we cannot escape."
"What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us."
"All of us, at certain moments of our lives, need to take advice and to receive help from other people."
"Laughter cannot mask a heavy heart. When the laughter ends the grief remains."
Life and death. Energy and peace. If I stopped today, it was still worth it. Even the terrible mistakes that I have made, and would have unmade if I could. The pains that have burned me and scarred my soul. It was worth it for having been allowed to walk where I've walked, which was to hell on earth, heaven on earth, back again, into, under, far in between, though it, in it and above..." - Gia -
If I make a fool of myself, who cares? I'm not frightened by anyone's perception of me." - Angelina Jolie-
I am doing things that are true to me. The only thing I have a problem with is being labeled-Angelina Jolie-
