Favorite Lotr Quotes

1. "Man's mind is his basic tool of survival. Life is given to him, survival is not. His body is given to him, its sustenance is not. His mind is given to him, its content is not. To remain alive, he must act, and before he can act he must know the nature and purpose of his action. He cannot obtain his food without a knowledge of food and of the way to obtain it. He cannot dig a ditch-or build a cyclotron-without a knowledge of his aim and of the means to achieve it. To remain alive, he must think"
Author: Ayn Rand
2. "Moderation is a wiser policy than zealotry"
Author: Christopher Paolini
3. "Imagine the spirit as a mansion. You'll guess we don't use many rooms. Apart from a few moments in childhood we don't dance around it in sunlight. But there's a traffic of things in and out, and what happens is that unwanted bulks can gather inside. Gather and gather, menacing us. Unable to shift them, we hide in ever-smaller spaces. And in our last hole, life offers a choice: to play out our demise in parallel theatres - psychosis, zealotry, religion, cancer, addiction - or to bow quietly out. But beware: life doesn't ask these high questions when we're confident and fresh - it waits for hopelessness."
Author: D.B.C. Pierre
4. "The coyly nicknamed explosive Key4 had been developed by Special Forces specifically for opening locked doors with minimal collateral damage. Consisting primarily of cyclotrimethylenetrinitramine with a diethylhexyl plasticizer, it was essentially a piece of C-4 rolled into paper-thin sheets for insertion into doorjambs. In the case of the library's reading room, the explosive had worked perfectly."
Author: Dan Brown
5. "Too many of us die without knowing transcendent joy, in part because we pursue one form or another of materialism. We seek meaning in possessions, in pursuit of cosmic justice for earthly grievances, in the acquisition of power over others. But one day Death reveals that life is wasted in these cold passions, because zealotry of any kind precludes love except of the thing that is idolized."
Author: Dean Koontz
6. "Socialism, Puritanism, Philistinism, Christianity-he saw the all as allotropic forms of democracy, as variations upon the endless struggle of quantity against quality, of the weak and timorous against the strong and enterprising, of the botched against the fit."
Author: H.L. Mencken
7. "The enemy of idealism is zealotry."
Author: Neil Kinnock
8. "Conversion and zealotry, just like revelation and apostasy, are flip sides of the same coin, the currency of a political culture having more in common with religion than rational discourse."
Author: Norman G. Finkelstein
9. "I'm for open-mindedness and tolerance. I'm against any form of fanaticism, fundamentalism or zealotry, and this certainty of 'We have the truth.' The truth is far too large and complex. Nobody has the truth."
Author: Philip Pullman
10. "To the American people I say, awaken to what is happening. It is the duty of each citizen to be vigilant, to protect liberty, to speak out, left and right and disagree lest be trampled underfoot by misguided zealotry and extreme partisanship."
Author: Robert Byrd
11. "The key experiential approach I now use to induce non-ordinary states of consciousness and gain access to the unconscious and superconscious psyche is Holotropic Breathwork, which I have developed jointly with Christina over the last fifteen years. This seemingly simple process, combining breathing, evocative music and other forms of sound, body work, and artistic expression, has an extraordinary potential for opening the way for exploring the entire spectrum of the inner world."
Author: Stanislav Grof

BatteA fatica per me, non può batter per dueScegli bene le parole tueUna sola e si potrebbe spezzareNon voglio più amare, ricordaloTroppo amore ho voluto sprecareMi è caduto a terra, si è rottoParla pure, ripara ed incollaIl mio fauno non corre, barcollaPrega le ninfe che gli stanno intorno:"Non scappate da me così in fretta"Ma le ninfe ridono e fuggonoEd è giusto. E' la loro vendetta."
Author: Stefano Benni
13. "Never trust a Troglotroll"
Author: Walter Moers

Author: William Shakespeare
