"No Shit, Sherlock" has to be one of my most frequented lines. I can't remember where I read it first though, one of my dads books when I was just a nipper. No idea what that was now though, or even what it was about lol.
This is my sandvich. There are many others like it, but this one is mine. My sandvich is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. Without me, my sandvich is useless. Without my sandvich, I am useless. I must eat my sandvich true. I must shoot straighter than my enemy, who is trying to kill me. I must shoot him before he shoots me. I will. Before lunch I swear this creed: my sandvich and myself are defenders of my country, we are the masters of our enemy, we are the saviors of my life. So be it, until there is no enemy, but sandvich. Om nom.

While revising political philosophy for my Uni exams, i stumbled upon some of friedrich nietzsche's work and have been dragged into the world of nihilism (he was not a nazi, his sister twisted his work and ideas into an anti semetic ideology)

What, if some day or night a demon were to steal after you into your loneliest loneliness and say to you: 'This life as you now live it and have lived it, you will have to live once more and innumerable times more' ... Would you not throw yourself down and gnash your teeth and curse the demon who spoke thus? Or have you once experienced a tremendous moment when you would have answered him: 'You are a god and never have I heard anything more divine

"Religion is the opium of the people" a well known one by Karl Marx.
Do note: I agree with this quote when it comes to organized religion. One can believe in a higher entity without following a specific religion or a sect.

''Quiet people have the loudest minds.''

- Stephen Hawking

While this might not be true in alot of cases, I picked that quote because it is very true in my case.


"If this is your God, he's not very impressive. He's got so many psychological problems; he's so insecure. He demands worship every seven days. He goes out and creates faulty humans and then blames them for his own mistakes. He's a pretty poor excuse for a supreme being."

- Spock, from the first draft of "Star Trek: the motion picture".
