    He neither drank, smoked, nor rode a bicycle. Living frugally, saving his money, he died early, surrounded by greedy relatives. It was a great lesson to me.

    The worst thing about some men is that when they are not drunk they are sober.

    You are not drunk if you can lie on the floor without holding on.

    It's a known fact, sonny Jim, that a secret society of the five wealthiest people, known as the Pentavirate run everything in the world, including the newspapers and meet tri-annually at a secret mansion in Colorado known as the Meadows.

    Ugh, who's in this Pentavirate?

    The Queen, the Vatican, the Gettys, the Rothchild's, and Colonel Sanders before he went tits-up. Oh, I hated the Colonel, with his wee beady eyes and that smug look on his face.... OOOOh you're gonna buy my chicken ooohhh!

    Dad, How can you hate the Colonel?

    Because he puts addictive chemicals in his chicken making you crave it fortnightly smartass.

    Interesting, cuckoo!

    I suppose more of a dialogue, but once you start you can't stop.
    Also, BoD is the greatest John Cusack movie ever, suck it Say Anything.

    This thread is full of lame Hollywood quotes that are rather meaningless in real life. I don't think they qualify as truly great quotes.

    This one has a lot of importance for the struggles mountain bikers face when it comes to trail access (especially here in California).

    "It does not take a majority to prevail... but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men."

    Napoleon had some gems...

    Religion is what keeps the poor from murdering the rich.


    Death is nothing, but to live defeated and inglorious is to die daily.

    In politics stupidity is not a handicap.

    Never interrupt your enemy when he is making a mistake.

    To be fair, the opening quote is from a Hollywood movie. If the first example would have been: Party on Dudes!-Abe Lincoln, perhaps the "quality" of the quotes would be more suitable to inspire.
    I don't know why,... it's just MUSS easier to pedal than the other ones.

    Stop this day and night with me, and you shall possess the origin of all poems;
    You shall possess the good of the earth and sun—(there are millions of suns left)
    You shall no longer take things at second or third hand, nor look through the eyes of the dead, nor feed on the spectres in books;
    You shall not look through my eyes either, nor take things from me:
    You shall listen to all sides, and filter them from yourself.

    “For instance, on the planet Earth, man had always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much—the wheel, New York, wars and so on—whilst all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time. But conversely, the dolphins had always believed that they were far more intelligent than man—for precisely the same reasons.” - Douglas Adams

    From a movie, but still profound:


    I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched c-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die . . . .

    Oh, I know the Brewtality drill. Got no problem with it. Just thought you were being a bit Brewtal on one of the most famous movie lines. But, hey, I didn't write the movie. And the line was written by Rutger Hauer. I'm sure he takes no offense either.

    A Few Good Men,

    You don't want the truth because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that wall, you need me on that wall. We use words like honor, code, loyalty. We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punchline. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom that I provide, and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather you just said thank you, and went on your way, Otherwise, I suggest you pick up a weapon, and stand a post. Either way, I don't give a damn what you think you are entitled to. "

    Yea, but its all in how you use them. The quote i dropped early in this thread was used by my self to glorious effect in my early 20's. I had a supervisor who on payday would ALWAYS make the same stupid jokes when we signed for our paychecks.

    "hahaha, sign here to give me your paycheck."

    I looked him dead in the eye and said stone faced and serious "You're a funny guy Pete, that's why im going to kill you last."

    Hell, i even used the Austrian accent. Evidently he had never seen the movie, that man never cracked a joke or even made eye contact with me the rest of the 8 years i worked there.

    Not from a movie..... from a conversation last night with my brother, (who is 35.)

    My brother: "I did an hour's ride up at Woodhill [Forest] by myself last night. It kind of scares me riding by myself at night."

    Me: "Yeah, I know what you mean.... I ride a lot more cautiously when I'm alone at night."

    My brother: "Nah, I'm not scared of hurting myself. I scared of ghosts."

    Definitely for mature audiences only over there.

    You should check it out, great movie. Of all the Vietnam movies that came out in that era this one was a standout as it was not the run of the mill action jungle war movie. Its a Kubrick flick so that should give you an idea of what to expect. Lots of actors in their young days but I'll point out Vincent D'Onofrio as an overweight and incompetent recruit is outstanding.

    It was an unusual take on a war movie and I really liked it as well. It's a Kubrick film so its not too surprising that its a bit off center. Also great soundtrack.

    I've been thinking about this, Mr. Hand. If I'm here and you're here, doesn't that make it our time? Certainly, there's nothing wrong with a little feast on our time.

    Feasting on time means it will pass more quickly.

    Re: Great "Quotes"

    Well, if Hollywood quotes are out, then i guess . . . Thoreau?

    Men of one idea, like a hen with one chicken, and that a duckling; men of a thousand ideas, and unkempt heads, like those hens which are made to take charge of a hundred chickens, all in pursuit of one bug, a score of them lost in every morning's dew- and become frizzled and mangy in consequence; . .. Men who did not know when their visit had terminated, though I went about my business again, answering them from greater and greater remoteness. ... Men of ideas instead of legs, a sort of intellectual centipede that made you crawl all over. ... Men of business, even farmers, thought only of solitude and employment, and of the great distance at which I dwelt from something or other; ... Restless committed men, whose time was an taken up in getting a living or keeping it; ministers who spoke of God as if they enjoyed a monopoly of the subject, who could not bear all kinds of opinions; . . . young men who had ceased to be young, . . .Finally, there were the self-styled reformers, the greatest bores of all.

    I can't claim to have a %100 completion rate, but years ago during the winter I was at a bar and I was talking about a guy about skateboarding, he mentioned that he had a 15' x 60' unfinished basement with a 9' tall ceiling and he wanted to build a mini skatepark in it. I said I had all the wood needed which I had scrounged from the dump, a plan was made to do it the next morning. I showed up with my trailer full of wood and all my tools in my car at 10:00 AM, he was shocked, though it was all drunk talk, WRONG! 2 days later we had a sweet skatespot for the winter!

    Nope! But when ollieing over the fun box I did smack my hand on the floor joists and lost a bunch of skin off my knuckles. I have hit my head at other times though, just not there :-P

    Sorry I couldn't help myself but building a skate park in a basement with 9' ceiling's. I immediately
    thought of the average guy being 5'10 - 6' tall. Add
    a 3' ramp and add some air time, well the result is obvious. By the way read the last sentence in my signature below.

    We had a 6' tall bowled corner!

    But it had 3' of vert, the fun box was 18" tall, and you could ollie about 2' high over it, but at the top if your ollie you'd of course be hunched way over, it all worked out really well.

    A brilliant fellow he was and my favorite fiction author by far. He wrote over 350 books and most were non-fiction.
    That last phrase in the second quote is brilliantly stated and so true.
    He points to one of the most destructive fallacies of our time.

    Hey now, in a democratic republic you vote for other people to be ignorant in your stead. Who wants to go through all the work of being ignorant themselves?

    First quote is great as well--rather logically and illogically humorous to me...

    Time is not a substantial thing.
    It is a context within which events take place.
    You don't use it up as you pass from one event to the next.

    As an illustration: think of time for a moment like a large body of water where you travel over its surface from one point to another.
    You don't use up the water and the only evidence is a fast disappearing disturbance.
    The illustration has obvious limits, but the only real evidence is the fact that you 'know' that you were once 'there' and now you are 'here'. The water is irrelevant.

    That is a great point and brings up all kind of often discussed imaginings.

    Ears facilitate waves--brain interprets
    Tactile surfaces facilitate heat, pressure and texture--brain interprets

    Is there an organ that facilitates time?

    But--it indicates a few things. It grew from length to length and sits in the sink giving some measure of proof of a past event.

Using the same twenty seven words interspersed with filler noises such as "like" and "you know" is an unacceptable and inefficient form of communication. Look up interspersed. There will be no more 'bleeps' in the Jerry Springer show. If you're not old enough to cope with bad language then you shouldn't have chat shows. When you learn to develop your vocabulary then you won't have to use bad language as often."

    To be or not to be, that is the question —
    Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer
    The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
    Or to take arms against a sea of troubles,
    And by opposing, end them. To die, to sleep —
    No more; and by a sleep to say we end
    The heart-ache and the thousand natural shocks
    That flesh is heir to — ’tis a consummation
    Devoutly to be wish’d. To die, to sleep —
    To sleep, perchance to dream. Ay, there’s the rub,
    For in that sleep of death what dreams may come,
    When we have shuffled off this mortal coil,
    Must give us pause. There’s the respect
    That makes calamity of so long life,
    For who would bear the whips and scorns of time,
    Th’oppressor’s wrong, the proud man’s contumely,
    The pangs of despised love, the law’s delay,
    The insolence of office, and the spurns
    That patient merit of th’unworthy takes,
    When he himself might his quietus make
    With a bare bodkin? who would fardels bear,
    To grunt and sweat under a weary life,
    But that the dread of something after death,
    The undiscovered country from whose bourn
    No traveller returns, puzzles the will,
    And makes us rather bear those ills we have
    Than fly to others that we know not of?
    Thus conscience does make cowards of us all,
    And thus the native hue of resolution
    Is sicklied o’er with the pale cast of thought,
    And enterprises of great pitch and moment
    With this regard their currents turn awry,
    And lose the name of action.
    William Shakespeare
    — Hamlet, act 3, scene 1, Hamlet

    I prefer not to think. It's why I like riding. No time to think, just act and react. You have to be in the now to keep rolling.

    IMO the primary things to come from the future and past are worry and regret
    Chasing bears through the woods drunk with a dull hatchet is strongly not advised

    Great stuff! Its our inherent limitations that give rise to appreciation of what is.
    Without limitations there is no context for striving.

    Settertude, old Hamlet should have spent more time living in the now 'stead of studying a sink full of cut hair.

    I've never met old Hamlet, but I've heard he was quite a chap.

    ^^Reminds me of the classic Dylan quote:
    "Steal a little, and they put you in jail. Steal a lot, and they make you king."

    Chris: Didn't even notice I screwed it up till you quoted it. Another of my favorites:

    “The human race is a monotonous affair. Most people spend the greatest part of their time working in order to live, and what little freedom remains so fills them with fear that they seek out any and every means to be rid of it.”

    Hitler was an impassioned communicator. He was also batshit crazy evil.
