Mark These Quotations

A few of my favorite quotations, and some of my personal mantra:

Silly nonsense:

“My oddity is a commodity.” ~If someone else came up with this, it’s a coincidence that I thought of it too.

“DEFY CONVENTION” ~Clarkson University’s motto

“So, y’know how much cooler the Death Star is than a can opener?… Yeah.” ~My boyfriend, describing me vs. other girls (he may have gotten it from somewhere else).

Profound Quotes: well, I think they’re profound…

“Those who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night.” ~Edgar Allan Poe

“A stroke of the brush does not guarantee art from the bristles.” ~Kosh, from Babylon 5

“…you seek meaning. Then listen to the music, not the song.” ~Kosh, from Babylon 5

“Make it so.” ~Captain Picard, Star Trek (TNG)

Collige, virgo, rosas.
Tempus fugit.
Carpe diem, quam minimum credula postero.
Memento mori.
~Latin: Gather, girl, the roses. / Time flies. / Seize the day, putting as little trust as possible in the future. / Remember your mortality.

“It’s so hard to forget pain, but it’s even harder to remember sweetness. We have no scar to show for happiness. We learn so little from peace.” ~Diary by Chuck Palahniuk
