I decided it would be cool to have a page devoted to cool quotes. I’ll add categories as I go.

"When there’re no doors or windows, God just blows up the whole wall." ~J
"It’s not the words of God that I don’t understand but the ones I do understand that bother me." ~Mark Twain
"The whole modern world has divided itself into Conservatives and Progressives. The business of Progressives is to go on making mistakes. The business of the Conservatives is to prevent the mistakes from being corrected." ~G.K. Chesterton
"“The Christian ideal has not been tried and found wanting. It has been found difficult and left untried." ~G.K. Chesterton
"But as for me, I do not dain to call myself a friend of God; I will call him most holy King and gracious loving Father, and I will call Jesus my Lord and Master, but I will not insult God by bringing him to my sinful level and calling him a friend." ~Yours Truly
"And when God reveals himself, all chasing after other things becomes stupidity." ~Paul Washer
"The further you go with the Lord, the more it thins out. The dropouts start dropping everywhere." ~David Wilkerson

"And there alone in my bedroom as I faced God honestly with what my heart felt, it seemed to me I heard Him say: ‘Yes. Will not the Judge of all the earth do right? The heathen are lost. And they’re going to go to hell not because they haven’t heard the gospel. They’re going to go to hell because they’re sinners. Who love… their… sin. And because they deserve hell.’" ~Paris Reidhead.
"You exist for God, God does not exist for you. He’s God, you’re not, get over it. He created you for himself. Once you miss that, life will always go in the wrong direction. Always. Most people spend their lives trying to get God to endorse what *they* want. He’ll never do it." ~Tony Evans

"About this time, he [Augustus] had the sarcophagus containing Alexander the Great’s mummy removed from its shrine and, after a long look at its features, showed his veneration by crowning the head with a golden diadem and strewing flowers on the trunk. When asked ‘Would you now like to visit the Mausoleum of the Ptolemies?’ he replied: ‘I came to see a King, not a row of corpses.’" ~Suetonius, The Twelve Caesars
"What I am saying is not, I know, of the pleasantest sort; but I cannot help it. Harsh necessity, as well as my own character, compels me to tell the truth, not to flatter you with agreeable lies. I should like to please you, my friends, but I should much prefer to save you, whatever your feelings to me, personally, may be."~Quinctius, Roman consul, The Early History of Rome
"The study of history is the best medicine for a sick mind; for in history you have a record of the infinite variety of human experience plainly set out for all to see; and in that record you can find for yourself and your country both examples and warnings; fine things to take as models, base things, rotten through and through, to avoid." ~Livy, The Early History of Rome
"A serpent passed over a river, and S. Martin said to the serpent: I command thee in the name of God that thou return anon. And the serpent returned by the words of S. Martin, and went to that other side, and then S. Martin said, all weeping: The serpents understand me well, and the men will not hear me." ~The Golden Legend
"The only thing we learn from history is that we don’t learn from history." ~David Wilkerson
~"If we don’t change our direction, we’re likely to end up where we’re headed." ~Ancient Chinese Proverb)
Daniel: This motzerella cheese tastes like cardboard…
Me: Motzerella doesn’t tend to have that much flavor though, right?
Daniel: Well when I had it with the Queen of England, it was quite flavorful.
Me: Well when I had it with the King of France, it was quite bland.
Daniel: There is no King of France.
Me: No, I’m just really old
Daniel: haha, touche.
Speaker: "You are the hope of this generation!!"
J: "We’re all gonna die…"
(After we had been discussing who Demosthenes was [i.e. the guy who put pebbles in his mouth to practice speaking] at dinner, our mother told us about someone’s house in a nearby town that got vaporized by a propane explosion. Luckily the people escaped just before the explosion and only got 2nd degree burns)
Sam: Boy, it’s a good thing they only got second degree burns… or else their souls would be fluttering down to Hades like little butterflies…
Me: No, like little psuche.
Sam: Oh, right, they’d be fluttering down to Hades like little psuche.
Dad: With pebbles in their mouths!
(Sam and I laugh for about 3 minutes straight because of the dumbness of the remark)
Polyphloisboisterous Homer of old
Threw all his augments into the sea,
Although he had often been courteously told
That perfect imperfects begin with an e.
But the poet replied with a dignified air,
"What the Digamma does any one care?"
"If a man hasn’t discovered something that he will die for, he isn’t fit to live." ~Martin Luther King.
