Fear and Rage - Quotes

If I live by illusions, you live by excuses.

Spanish anarchist proverb

I'm the one who's got to die when it's time for me to die, so let me live my life the way I want to.

Jimi Hendrix
If 6 Was 9

Convictions are more dangerous enemies of truth than lies.

Friedrich Nietzsche

Some say that it is pathetic that we work for money, use this money to survive, and survive to have children that will go through the same pattern... I think it only makes death less of a dramatic event in one's life.

Philippe-Olivier Contant

Q: Do you think there's a God, some kind of supreme being or force in our universe?
A: I don't know. I don't believe in any religion. I think religions are among the greatest curses that ever afflicted mankind - look at all the wars and miseries they've caused. Perhaps the universe was here forever. Perhaps one day we may know the answer.

Sir Arthur C. Clarke
BBC World Service

Q: But when you look at the design and the order in the universe, do you think it's logical to suppose that there's somekind of rational force behind it all?
A: Yes, the old argument for design has been around for a long time. The people who try to claim there must be a designer behind the universe only point at the good things that this designer has done. Our world is full of utterly horrible, atrocious things.

Sir Arthur C. Clarke
BBC World Service

Q: But when you look at the univers - its scale and its beauty - are you not filled with a profound sense of awe?
A: It's wonderful and incomprehensible. It's beyond imagination, how huge and complex it is.

Sir Arthur C. Clarke

Do you think in many ways, sir, you're the victim of circumstance now?

Peter Jennings, to Vice President Al Gore

What the church has to offer: a teaching in the belief of Christ under a "no-questions-asked" policy, the ability to be loved by a million ignorants and the opportunity to open a savings account in the bank of the Vatican.


If heaven is perfect, then the Christian god is an anarchist. Anarchy has always been seen as the anti-goverment, and it really is, it is based on the morals of the masses than the corruptness of a minority.

Hell is a very big place, big enough for me to send his entire army there.


Pondering is the quintessential essence of the intelligent man, for without the art of thinking, man would be nothing but a disheveled mass of flesh and bone. Unfortunately, the art of thinking in logical terms has become somewhat extinct, the face of this planet is covered with idiots. The smart ones are always crazy, the one's that can think for themselves are punished by society for being an outcasts... nothing will ever be done about it, how can one have faith in a world that put George W. Bush in a position of power.

Jordan Allen Wagner

For today, we celebrate the first glorious anniversary of the Information Purification Directives. We have created, for the first time in all history, a garden of pure ideology. Where each worker may bloom secure from the pests of contradictory and confusing truths. Our Unification of Thought is more powerful a weapon than any fleet or army on earth. We are one people. With one will. One resolve. One cause. Our enemies shall talk themselves to death. And we will bury them with their own confusion. We shall prevail!

1984, Macintosh Commercial

There is nothing so revered yet so reviled as war; for even as it brings out the worst in men, it also brings out the best in them.

Neil Lowe

Everything about human nature reduces life to a routine.

Manic Street Preachers

According to the bible, Heaven is completely perfect and Hell is completely evil. In Heaven, in order to keep everything completely perfect, everyone in it would have to follow a long, specific set of rules for it to be perfect. Heaven is prison. In Hell, everyone is already evil there, so no rules need to be set to make it completely evil. Hell is freedom.

William Carroll

Escape is not the answer to freedom. Not sex, not drugs, not your little fairy-tale land in the clouds, not even death. You wanna be free? You better be fucking ready to fight. Tooth and nail.

Jacqualynn Sommer

As Hitler showed us, a press suppressed does not make a recovery. As Lenin indicated, a press controlled does not revert to a critic's role. As history reminds us, free speech surrendered is rarely recovered.

William J. Small - former president of United Press International

Per me si va nella citta dolente,
Per me si va nell'eterno dolore,
Per me si va tra la perduta gente.
Lasciate ogni speranza voi ch'entrate!

(This way for the sorowful city,
This way for eternal suffering,
This way to join the lost people.
All hope abandon, ye who enter here!)

Dante Alighieri

Nothing can resist the will of that which will stake its existence upon its fulfilment.

Benjamin Disraeli

Frank Herbert
Dune Messiah

Manic Street Preachers
Motown Junk

If something good happens, he (God) is love. If something bad happens, he moves in mysterious ways.

The End of Days

If god doesn't like the way I live, Let him tell me, not you.

What you hold in your hand is proof of man's power - against which our strength means nothing. It has the force of 100 spears. I warn you, man's ingenuity goes hand-in-hand with their cruelty. No creature is as devious or violent.

Charlton Heston
Planet of the Apes

At Auschwitz, Hitler declared, "I freed germany form the stupid and degrading fallacies of conscience and morality... We will train young people before whome the world will tremble."

Kelly Monroe
Finding God at Harvard

I saw him open his mouth wide -- it gave him a weirdly voracious aspect, as though he had wanted to swallow all the air, all the earth, all the men before him.

Joseph Conrad
Heart of Darkness

Violence in the media making people shoot other people? Any pile of stunted growth who isn't aware that entertainment is just that and nothing more deserves to doom themselves to some dark cell somewhere for having been so stupid.

Johnny, the Homicidal Maniac

Woe to the people that fails to honor its heroes! It will cease producing them, cease knowing them. Heroes spring from the essence of their people. A people without heroes is a people without leaders, for only a heroic leader is a true leader able to withstand the challenge of difficult times.

Rudolf Hess

Today, communication itself is the problem. We have become the world's first overcommunicated society. Each year we send more and receive less.

Al Reis

The sleep of reason breeds monsters.

Francisco de Goya
Francisco de Goya

We all have inner demons to fight, we call these demons, fear and hatred and anger. If you do not conquer them then a life of one hundred years is a tragedy. If you do, then a life of a single day can be a triumph.

Yip Mann, Bruce Lee's first kung fu teacher

Nothing is bigger than life. There's nothing noble in death. What's noble about never seeing the sunshine again? What's noble about having your legs and arms blown off? What's noble about being an idiot? What's noble about being blind and deaf and dumb? What's noble about being dead?

Dalton Trumbo
Johnny got his Gun

I was drowning my sorrows, but my sorrows, they learned to swim.

Until The End Of The World, Actung Baby

Lies are the mortar that binds the savage individual man into the social masonry.

H. G. Wells

The 3 types of terror: The Gross-out: the sight of a severed head tumbling down a flight of stairs, it's when the lights go out and something green and slimy splatters against your arm. The Horror: the unnatural, spiders the size of bears, the dead waking up and walking around, it's when the lights go out and something with claws grabs you by the arm. And the last and worse one: Terror, when you come home and notice everything you own had been taken away and replaced by an exact substitute. It's when the lights go out and you feel something behind you, you hear it, you feel its breath against your ear, but when you turn around, there's nothing there...

Stephen King, paraphrasing Stephen Wright
Dance Macabre

He who does not believe in hell is in the greatest danger of landing there.

Edward Schwank

We have all become god's madmen.

Van Helsing

Imagine the ego of mankind, to deem themselves so grand as to warrant a creator worthy of praise.

Robert Brunswick Jr.

There are heroes in this world. They're called district attorneys. They don't get to have clients, people who smile at them at the end of the trial, who look them in the eye and say, 'Thank you.' Nobody's there to appreciate the district attorney because we work for the state, and our gratitude comes only from knowing there's a tide out there - a tide the size of a tsunami coming out of a bottomless cesspool, a tide called crime, which, if left unchecked, will rob every American of his freedom, a tide which strips individuals of the privilege of being able to walk down a dark street or take $20 out of an ATM machine without fear of being mugged. All Congress does is talk, but it's the district attorney who grabs his sword, who digs into the trenches and fights the fight, who dogs justice day after day after day without thanks, without so much as a simple pat on the back, but we do it. We do it. We do it because we are the crusaders, the last frontier of American justice, knowing that if a man cannot feel safe, he can never, never feel free.

Richard Bay (Jason Kravits)
The Practice

Everyone is afraid of dying, why? If you are completely happy with life, then when you die, you are only moving onto the next phase of life. It doesn't matter if there is life after death because no one has ever died and come back. Also, if there is a heaven, it would have to be made up of everyone's perspective of heaven. If not then there is no such thing as heaven and religion is nothing but bullshit.

Books won't stay banned. They won't burn. Ideas won't go to jail. In the long run of history, the censor and the inquisitor have always lost. The only sure weapon against bad ideas is better ideas. The source of better ideas is wisdom. The surest path to wisdom is a liberal education.
