    Re: Favorite Inspiring Quotes

    "It's better to die on your feet than to live on your knees"
    (Robin Proper Sheppard, although apparently a Spanish variant was spoken by Chť Guevara long before but he in his turn was inspired by an even older quote)

    "Freedom is always, and exclusively, freedom for the one who thinks differently." (Rosa Luxemburg)

    "Those who do not move, do not notice their chains." (Rosa Luxemburg)

    "La tristesse durera" (translated "The sadness will go on" or less literally "The world continues and the sadness is here to stay" - the last words of Vincent Van Gogh)

    "The quickest way to end a war is to lose it." (George Orwell)

    "The only thing we have to fear, is fear itself" (Franklin D Roosevelt)

    "The country was founded on the principle that the primary role of government is to protect property from the majority, and so it remains." (Noam Chomsky)

    "A slave begins by demanding justice and ends by wanting to wear a crown." (Albert Camus)

    "A house is a machine for living in" (Le Corbusier)

    "Life can only be understood backwards, but it has to be lived forwards" (SÝren Kierkegaard)

    "Maybe I am not very human - what I wanted to do was to paint sunlight on the side of a house" (Edward Hopper)

    "There is no more democratic government, than a revolutionary government" (Fidel Castro)

    "Happiness is a fata morgana, the only way not to end up very unhappy is not to long for happiness" (Friedrich Nietzsche)

    "Od lo avda tikvateinu" (Hebrew for "Our hope is not yet lost" - paragraph from the Israeli anthem HaTikva, written by Naphtali Herz Imber )

    quoted from unknown:

    "Tomorrow is too late"

    "Man does not invent, he discovers"




    This is without including songlines which I find inspiring (in a way a song lyric is as much a quote as a poem or line from a speech, but for the sake of keeping the list relatively short ...)

    TRUE POPULARITY is measured not by how many hear your loudness,
    but by how many strain closer to hear your whispers.

    Life is very much like surfing: it's up to you to get out there, catch the wave, stand up, and to ride it out best you can.

    First they ignore you;
    Then they ridicule you;
    Then they fight you;
    Then you win.
