Q, (quote from Major Ron Reid-Daly, Rhodesia)
- Images Of War
We do not consider ourselves an elite group of men, nor de we think we are of the highest calibre. It could cause the men to imagine themselves better than they really are and this could in turn lead to recklessness. We are simply just trackers out to do a job. We take a chap right down when he first comes here, right to the bottom. And then we build him up again into what we need int the Selous Scouts. Be a man among men!
- Chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE)

- LeBron James Responding to Haters
I'm LeBron James, from Akron, Ohio, from the inner city. I'm not even supposed to be here. That's enough. Every night I walk into the locker room, I see a No. 6 with James on the back, I'm blessed. So what everybody says about me off the court, don't matter. I ain't got no worries.
J. K. Rowling
- Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
A sense of excitement rose like a palpable cloud over the campsite as the afternoon wore on. By dusk, the still summer air itself seemed to be quivering with anticipation, and as darkness spread like a curtain over the thousands of waiting wizards, the last vestiges of pretence disappeared; the Ministry seemed to have bowed to the inevitable, and stopped fighting the signs of blatant magic now breaking out everywhere.
- Autism and the Social Mind
Developing the ability to coordinate attention socially is important in and of itself. For example, every teacher's admonition to students to "pay attention!" is really a request to "pay attention to what I am attending to." Joint attention is vital to social competence at all ages. Adolescents and adults who cannot follow, initiate or join with the rapid-fire changes of shared attention in social interactions may be impaired in their capacity for relatedness and relationships.
We easily forget our wounds. Once we feel the excruciating pain coming from the wound we would always think that it will pass in time, but the second it heals we tend to forget that it was there or where it even came from. We forget our scars, but we remember them once again when it starts hurting or when it leaves a mark. Just like when you remember someone special in your life and the life they lived.
- Jesus did everything you couldn't do
I used to feel depressed. I never knew what the point of life was, and why I was living. And then I watched the Chosen. And I realized that everything in this world has no meaning compared to what Jesus wants for us. He overcame for us, he washed our stains away. It makes me cry every time I think about it, that he would lay down his life for me. I was different, and now I am changed. And the thing that happened in the middle was him. He will set you free. Thanks be to him!

- To my non-Arab friends
Sometimes, we need a refresher on what's happening worldwide these days, especially when news coverage might be restricted. Currently, there's conflict between Israel and Palestine. We, as Arabs, chant for our freedom while they chant for our death. That should tell you all you need about the situation.
You roll with a guy for so many years... you start to think he's always gonna be next to you. Like when you're old on the porch, there'd be another rocking chair. And something happens. And you realize that the other chair is gone, and... you know what I mean?

- Argument With Cap
I said, "we'd lose." You said, "We'll do that together too." And guess what, Cap? We lost. And you weren't there. But that's what we do, right? Our best work after the fact? We're the Avengers, we're the Avengers. Not the Prevengers.
From a very early age in life, I swore that I would never let anyone keep me from reaching my goals or becoming the person I wanted to be. I kept that promise to myself until I became the person that was getting in my way.
Words. We have multiple types of them, some intricate, some general, some definitive. But there are certain things that our limited vocabulary cannot express. Words can be used to describe feelings, but thats all words can do; describe. You see, feelings are hard to express. We often use metaphors, because it is hard to explicitly state ones feelings, we rely on our metaphorical communication to express them, because feelings, feelings are much more than words.

- For the achievement
Don't mind me, I just want the achievement for adding a quote. Hopefully this quote isn't too hard to type. Please rate this quote well, and have a good day.
If Clark wanted to, he could use his superspeed and squish me into the cement. But I know how he thinks. Even more than the Kryptonite, he's got one big weakness. Deep down, Clark's essentially a good person... and deep down, I'm not.
I have come to realize that the most unbiased person in any situation is the most biased person. You can always trust a biased person to be biased in the exact way you know they will be. An unbiased person can never be truly impartial and will always try to sneak their own opinion into matters.
I have recently thought about dying. I thought I might be better off if I spared myself from the pain of life. Then I remembered that I have written many many quotes on here, and some of them have gotten a four star rating. That means they made some people happy, and If I was dead, I could never make anyone happy again, including myself.
- Turbo Encabulator
The original machine had a base plate of pre-famulated amulite surmounted by a malleable logarithmic casing in such a way that the two spurving bearings were in a direct line with the panametric fan. The latter consisted simply of six hydrocoptic marzlevanes, so fitted to the ambifacient lunar waneshaft that side fumbling was effectively prevented.
