I think there was a thread for this way back when, but whatever. Quotes that you like or keep you going in life.

“Only optimists commit suicide, optimists who no longer succeed at being optimists. The others, having no reason to live, why would they have any to die?”
-Emil Cioran

I have a few:

- "The best place to find a helping hand is at the end of your own arm."
- "To get over the past, you first have to accept that the past is over."
- "When you find no solution to a problem, it may not be a problem to be solved, but a truth to be accepted."

“Imagine a society that subjects people to conditions that make them terribly unhappy then gives them the drugs to take away their unhappiness. Science fiction? It is already happening to some extent in our own society. Instead of removing the conditions that make people depressed modern society gives them antidepressant drugs. In effect antidepressants are a means of modifying an individual's internal state in such a way as to enable him to tolerate social conditions that he would otherwise find intolerable.” -Ted Kaczynski

“While corporations dominate society and write the laws, each advance in technology is an opening for them to further restrict its users.” -Richard Stallman

"People who think they know everything really annoy those of us who know we don’t.” -Bjarne Stroustrup

“There have been times throughout American history where what is right is not the same as what is legal. Sometimes to do the right thing you have to break the law.” -Edward Snowden

“He who sacrifices freedom for security deserves neither.” -Benjamin Franklin

“Tolerance and apathy are the last virtues of a dying society.” -People argue about the origins of this quote, but I like it regardless of who said it

“You may live to see man-made horrors beyond your comprehension.” -Nikola Tesla

“Disobedience is the true foundation of liberty. The obedient must be slaves.” -Henry David Thoreau

“Whoever fights monsters should see to it that in the process he does not become a monster. And if you gaze long enough into an abyss, the abyss will gaze back into you.” -Friedrich Nietzsche, Beyond Good and Evil

“Freedom is the right to tell people what they do not want to hear.” -George Orwell

“Americans no longer talk to each other, they entertain each other. They do not exchange ideas, they exchange images. They do not argue with propositions; they argue with good looks, celebrities and commercials.” -Neil Postman, Amusing Ourselves to Death

“There are worse crimes than burning books. One of them is not reading them.” -Ray Bradbury

“There is only one corner of the universe you can be certain of improving, and that's your own self.” -Aldous Huxley

“We have to create culture, don't watch TV, don't read magazines, don't even listen to NPR. Create your own roadshow. The nexus of space and time where you are now is the most immediate sector of your universe, and if you're worrying about Michael Jackson or Bill Clinton or somebody else, then you are disempowered, you're giving it all away to icons, icons which are maintained by an electronic media so that you want to dress like X or have lips like Y. This is shit-brained, this kind of thinking. That is all cultural diversion, and what is real is you and your friends and your associations, your highs, your orgasms, your hopes, your plans, your fears. And we are told 'no', we're unimportant, we're peripheral. 'Get a degree, get a job, get a this, get a that.' And then you're a player, you don't want to even play in that game. You want to reclaim your mind and get it out of the hands of the cultural engineers who want to turn you into a half-baked moron consuming all this trash that's being manufactured out of the bones of a dying world.” -Terence McKenna

“Deprived of meaningful work, men and women lose their reason for existence; they go stark, raving mad.” -Fyodor Dostoevsky

“Vashti was seized with the terrors of direct experience. She shrank back into the room, and the wall closed up again.” -E.M. Forster, The Machine Stops

Quotes that makes me depressed. I must be an optimist!

Too long to post. The Lemmings quote of Dr. William Pierce.

“The real hopeless victims of mental illness are to be found among those who appear to be most normal. "Many of them are normal because they are so well adjusted to our mode of existence, because their human voice has been silenced so early in their lives, that they do not even struggle or suffer or develop symptoms as the neurotic does." They are normal not in what may be called the absolute sense of the word; they are normal only in relation to a profoundly abnormal society. Their perfect adjustment to that abnormal society is a measure of their mental sickness. These millions of abnormally normal people, living without fuss in a society to which, if they were fully human beings, they ought not to be adjusted.”
― Aldous Huxley, Brave New World Revisited

“For a man to conquer himself is the first and noblest of all victories.”
- Plato

“Nothing is more unreliable than the populace, nothing more obscure than human intentions, nothing more deceptive than the whole electoral system.”
- Marcus Tullius Cicero

“Propaganda is the executive arm of the invisible government.”
- Edward Bernays

“The most effective way to destroy people is to deny and obliterate their own understanding of their history.”
- George Orwell

I like reading Ted's manifesto.
"In modern industrial society only minimal effort is necessary to satisfy one’s physical needs. It is enough to go through a training program to acquire some petty technical skill, then come to work on time and exert the very modest effort needed to hold a job. The only requirements are a moderate amount of intelligence and, most of all, simple OBEDIENCE."

Here's one from zhuangzi:
“How do I know that loving life is not a delusion? How
do I know that in hating death I am not like a man who,
having left home in his youth, has forgotten the way back?"

“Good Morning!' said Bilbo, and he meant it. The sun was shining, and the grass was very green. But Gandalf looked at him from under long bushy eyebrows that stuck out further than the brim of his shady hat.

'What do you mean?' he said. 'Do you wish me a good morning, or mean that it is a good morning whether I want it or not; or that you feel good this morning; or that it is a morning to be good on?'

'All of them at once,' said Bilbo." -"The Hobbit" J.R.R. Tolkien

I've always loved this quote. It always makes me smile.
