    Influential Statements

    Hello AO faithful. There are many ways people conduct their lives, and many philosophies that we go by.

    I come here to ask what statements influenced your life, or way of doing things? or what is a statement that you use as a tagline for yourself?

    Being AO, i want to know why you like the quote, how it fits into your life, where you heard it (if you can remember) and how it influenced you.

    For me, one of my favorites is from 'Rowdy' Roddy Piper. "Just when they think that they have all the answeres, i change the questions." i always interpret this as "When some one thinks they know everything, baffle them with new knowledge." and it always stuck with me. I've met a few know it all people, and to mess their logic up, i throw them a rhetorical, or a philisophical question. Therefore, they have to open their minds a bit to answer a question with no answer.

    how about all of you?
    Why hello there!

    For me, the statement that influences me is "Live for today, look forward to tomorrow." It's from blood plus but I can't who originally said it. It's influential to me because it reminds me that no matter how bad things get, tomorrow is a new day and things could always get better!

    One of mine is "Man is Mortal, doomed to death, loss, and failure"

    Through this I see that no matter what we'll die, and things can always turn up horrible. So I just live life as wanted, expecting the worst at any time.

    "To live is to die"

    This is what makes me shameless, live life to the fullest, until death comes.

    "And my soul from out that shadow that lies floating on the floor
    Shall be lifted — nevermore!"

    Re: Influential Statements

    For me, it is "without courage, all other virtues lose their meaning", and it was used by Sir Winston Churchill
    My definition of that statement is that a person cannot be afraid to take some sort of a risk in her or his life...and who knows what might happen....it may be for the better...and if you do not..then you shall spend the rest of your life killing yourself and saying "why I did not go ahead and do that"..everybody needs courage in their life.and to me..that is one of the most important elements....

    Mine is "i did it for the lulz". The meaning behind this saying is that if you feel guilty after doing something to or tolled some one. If you recite this statement the guilt you have inside goes away because you didn't troll that person for your own benefit, you pretty much did it for the lulz.

    Re: Influential Statements

    mine would be "Science without religion is lame, Religion without science is blind."
    the quote is from Albert Einstien. I love this one because it sums up my approach to academics, as well as my approach to debate with churchmen and scientists (they are generally one extreme or another).

    thanks to zyta for the sick sig and avy!
