    every tokio hotel song has a beutiful quote in them! those are my favorite quotes ...

    here are some i made up and some i found ...

    I love standing in the rain because no one knows im crying :'(

    I wish i was as invisible as you make me feel .

    I'm tired of being what you want me to be
    Feeling so faithless lost under the surface
    Don't know what you're expecting of me
    Put under the pressure of walking in your shoes
    Every step that I take is another mistake to you
    I've become so numb I can't feel you there
    I've become so tired so much more aware
    I'm becoming this all I want to do
    Is be more like me and be less like you
    Can't you see that you're smothering me
    Holding too tightly afraid to lose control
    Cause everything that you thought I would be
    Has fallen apart right in front of you
    Every step that I take is another mistake to you
    And every second I waste is more than I can take -LP

    Careful with that light at the end of the tunnel, it might be another train coming

    Love is like a rose in winter, only the strong survive

    Smile, and the world will smile with you. Laugh and they'll all think your on drugs.

    I'm scared to fall in love, scared to fall fast, because everytime i fall in love.....it never seems to last

    Silence is silver, but music is gold

    Eat Right, Exer...

    I Do Whatever My Rice Krispies Tell Me To

    Inside this body lies that of a skinny lady. But I can usually shut her up with chocolate

    No boy is worth crying over and the one who is won't make you cry ..

    Love is like heaven but usually hurts like hell

    They misunderestimated me!" -George W. Bush

    I love him, O yes I do,
    He's for me, not for you,
    And if by chance you take my place,
    I'll take my fist and smash your face!

    "You just couldn't let me go could you? This is what happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object. You truly are incorruptible aren't you? You won't kill me out of some misplaced sense of self-righteousness, and I won't kill you, because you're just too much fun. I think you and I are destined to do this forever."


    THAT ONE oooooorrrrrrrr

    “War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling, which thinks that nothing is worth war, is much worse. The person, who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.”
    -John Stuart Mill-

    Most are from men whose great vision created this nation...




    Any fool can criticize, condemn and complain and most fools do.
    Benjamin Franklin

    Any society that would give up a little liberty to gain a little security will deserve neither and lose both.
    Benjamin Franklin

    By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.
    Benjamin Franklin

    Certainty? In this world nothing is certain but death and taxes.
    Benjamin Franklin

    Content makes poor men rich; discontent makes rich men poor.
    Benjamin Franklin

    Guests, like fish, begin to smell after three days.
    Benjamin Franklin

    Half a truth is often a great lie.
    Benjamin Franklin

    Having been poor is no shame, but being ashamed of it, is.
    Benjamin Franklin

    He does not possess wealth; it possesses him.
    Benjamin Franklin

    He that can have patience can have what he will.
    Benjamin Franklin

    He that composes himself is wiser than he that composes a book.
    Benjamin Franklin

    He that displays too often his wife and his wallet is in danger of having both of them borrowed.
    Benjamin Franklin

    A well regulated militia, composed of the body of the people, trained in arms, is the best most natural defense of a free country.

    James Madison

    A well-instructed people alone can be permanently a free people.
    James Madison

    All men having power ought to be distrusted to a certain degree.
    James Madison

    A popular government without popular information or the means of acquiring it, is but a prologue to a farce, or a tragedy, or perhaps both.
    James Madison

    Americans have the right and advantage of being armed - unlike the citizens of other countries whose governments are afraid to trust the people with arms.
    James Madison

    If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy.
    James Madison


    In Republics, the great danger is, that the majority may not sufficiently respect the rights of the minority.
    James Madison

    The people are the only legitimate fountain of power, and it is from them that the constitutional charter, under which the several branches of government hold their power, is derived.
    James Madison

    A democracy is nothing more than mob rule, where fifty-one percent of the people may take away the rights of the other forty-nine.
    Thomas Jefferson

    A wise and frugal government, which shall leave men free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor and bread it has earned - this is the sum of good government.
    Thomas Jefferson

    As our enemies have found we can reason like men, so now let us show them we can fight like men also.
    Thomas Jefferson

    Banking establishments are more dangerous than standing armies.
    Thomas Jefferson

    Be polite to all, but intimate with few.
    Thomas Jefferson

    Commerce with all nations, alliance with none, should be our motto.
    Thomas Jefferson

    Conquest is not in our principles. It is inconsistent with our government.
    Thomas Jefferson

    Dependence begets subservience and venality, suffocates the germ of virtue, and prepares fit tools for the designs of ambition.
    Thomas Jefferson

    Determine never to be idle. No person will have occasion to complain of the want of time who never loses any. It is wonderful how much may be done if we are always doing.
    Thomas Jefferson

    Do you want to know who you are? Don't ask. Act! Action will delineate and define you.
    Thomas Jefferson

    Don't talk about what you have done or what you are going to do.
    Thomas Jefferson

    Educate and inform the whole mass of the people... They are the only sure reliance for the preservation of our liberty.
    Thomas Jefferson

    Enlighten the people generally, and tyranny and oppressions of body and mind will vanish like evil spirits at the dawn of day.
    Thomas Jefferson

    Errors of opinion may be tolerated where reason is left free to combat it.
    Thomas Jefferson

    Every citizen should be a soldier. This was the case with the Greeks and Romans, and must be that of every free state.
    Thomas Jefferson

    Every generation needs a new revolution.
    Thomas Jefferson

    Every government degenerates when trusted to the rulers of the people alone. The people themselves are its only safe depositories.
    Thomas Jefferson

    Experience demands that man is the only animal which devours his own kind, for I can apply no milder term to the general prey of the rich on the poor.
    Thomas Jefferson

    Experience hath shewn, that even under the best forms of government those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny.
    Thomas Jefferson

    A long habit of not thinking a thing wrong gives it a superficial appearance of being right.
    Thomas Paine

    A thing moderately good is not so good as it ought to be. Moderation in temper is always a virtue; but moderation in principle is always a vice.
    Thomas Paine

    All national institutions of churches, whether Jewish, Christian or Turkish, appear to me no other than human inventions, set up to terrify and enslave mankind, and monopolize power and profit.
    Thomas Paine

    An army of principles can penetrate where an army of soldiers cannot.
    Thomas Paine

    Any system of religion that has anything in it that shocks the mind of a child, cannot be true.
    Thomas Paine

    Arms discourage and keep the invader and plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property... Horrid mischief would ensue were the law-abiding deprived of the use of them.
    Thomas Paine

    Belief in a cruel God makes a cruel man.
    Thomas Paine

    But such is the irresistable nature of truth, that all it asks, and all it wants is the liberty of appearing.
    Thomas Paine

    Character is much easier kept than recovered.
    Thomas Paine

    Every religion is good that teaches man to be good; and I know of none that instructs him to be bad.
    Thomas Paine

    Every science has for its basis a system of principles as fixed and unalterable as those by which the universe is regulated and governed. Man cannot make principles; he can only discover them.
    Thomas Paine

    Government, even in its best state, is but a necessary evil; in its worst state, an intolerable one.
    Thomas Paine

    He that rebels against reason is a real rebel, but he that in defence of reason rebels against tyranny has a better title to Defender of the Faith, than George the Third.
    Thomas Paine

    He that would make his own liberty secure must guard even his enemy from oppression; for if he violates this duty he establishes a precedent that will reach to himself.
    Thomas Paine

    Human nature is not of itself vicious.
    Thomas Paine

    I believe in the equality of man; and I believe that religious duties consist in doing justice, loving mercy, and endeavoring to make our fellow-creatures happy.
    Thomas Paine

    I love the man that can smile in trouble, that can gather strength from distress, and grow brave by reflection. 'Tis the business of little minds to shrink, but he whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves his conduct, will pursue his principles unto death.
    Thomas Paine

    If there must be trouble, let it be in my day, that my child may have peace.
    Thomas Paine

    If we do not hang together, we shall surely hang separately.
    Thomas Paine

    It is an affront to treat falsehood with complaisance.
    Thomas Paine

    It is error only, and not truth, that shrinks from inquiry.
    Thomas Paine

    It is necessary to the happiness of man that he be mentally faithful to himself. Infidelity does not consist in believing, or in disbelieving, it consists in professing to believe what he does not believe.
    Thomas Paine

    It is not a field of a few acres of ground, but a cause, that we are defending, and whether we defeat the enemy in one battle, or by degrees, the consequences will be the same.
    Thomas Paine

    Lead, follow, or get out of the way.
    Thomas Paine

    Of all the tyrannies that affect mankind, tyranny in religion is the worst.
    Thomas Paine

    That government is best which governs least.
    Thomas Paine

    These are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman.
    Thomas Paine

    Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom must, like men, undergo the fatigue of supporting it.
    Thomas Paine

    To say that any people are not fit for freedom, is to make poverty their choice, and to say they had rather be loaded with taxes than not.
    Thomas Paine

    Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.
    Margaret Mead


    And Finally....

    MR. PRESIDENT: No man thinks more highly than I do of the patriotism, as well as abilities, of the very worthy gentlemen who have just addressed the House. But different men often see the same subject in different lights; and, therefore, I hope it will not be thought disrespectful to those gentlemen if, entertaining as I do, opinions of a character very opposite to theirs, I shall speak forth my sentiments freely, and without reserve. This is no time for ceremony. The question before the House is one of awful moment to this country. For my own part, I consider it as nothing less than a question of freedom or slavery; and in proportion to the magnitude of the subject ought to be the freedom of the debate. It is only in this way that we can hope to arrive at truth, and fulfil the great responsibility which we hold to God and our country. Should I keep back my opinions at such a time, through fear of giving offence, I should consider myself as guilty of treason towards my country, and of an act of disloyalty toward the majesty of heaven, which I revere above all earthly kings.
    Mr. President, it is natural to man to indulge in the illusions of hope. We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth, and listen to the song of that siren till she transforms us into beasts. Is this the part of wise men, engaged in a great and arduous struggle for liberty? Are we disposed to be of the number of those who, having eyes, see not, and, having ears, hear not, the things which so nearly concern their temporal salvation? For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst, and to provide for it.

    I have but one lamp by which my feet are guided; and that is the lamp of experience. I know of no way of judging of the future but by the past. And judging by the past, I wish to know what there has been in the conduct of the British ministry for the last ten years, to justify those hopes with which gentlemen have been pleased to solace themselves, and the House? Is it that insidious smile with which our petition has been lately received? Trust it not, sir; it will prove a snare to your feet. Suffer not yourselves to be betrayed with a kiss. Ask yourselves how this gracious reception of our petition comports with these war-like preparations which cover our waters and darken our land. Are fleets and armies necessary to a work of love and reconciliation? Have we shown ourselves so unwilling to be reconciled, that force must be called in to win back our love? Let us not deceive ourselves, sir. These are the implements of war and subjugation; the last arguments to which kings resort. I ask, gentlemen, sir, what means this martial array, if its purpose be not to force us to submission? Can gentlemen assign any other possible motive for it? Has Great Britain any enemy, in this quarter of the world, to call for all this accumulation of navies and armies? No, sir, she has none. They are meant for us; they can be meant for no other. They are sent over to bind and rivet upon us those chains which the British ministry have been so long forging. And what have we to oppose to them? Shall we try argument? Sir, we have been trying that for the last ten years. Have we anything new to offer upon the subject? Nothing. We have held the subject up in every light of which it is capable; but it has been all in vain. Shall we resort to entreaty and humble supplication? What terms shall we find which have not been already exhausted? Let us not, I beseech you, sir, deceive ourselves. Sir, we have done everything that could be done, to avert the storm which is now coming on. We have petitioned; we have remonstrated; we have supplicated; we have prostrated ourselves before the throne, and have implored its interposition to arrest the tyrannical hands of the ministry and Parliament. Our petitions have been slighted; our remonstrances have produced additional violence and insult; our supplications have been disregarded; and we have been spurned, with contempt, from the foot of the throne. In vain, after these things, may we indulge the fond hope of peace and reconciliation. There is no longer any room for hope. If we wish to be free² if we mean to preserve inviolate those inestimable privileges for which we have been so long contending²if we mean not basely to abandon the noble struggle in which we have been so long engaged, and which we have pledged ourselves never to abandon until the glorious object of our contest shall be obtained, we must fight! I repeat it, sir, we must fight! An appeal to arms and to the God of Hosts is all that is left us!

    They tell us, sir, that we are weak; unable to cope with so formidable an adversary. But when shall we be stronger? Will it be the next week, or the next year? Will it be when we are totally disarmed, and when a British guard shall be stationed in every house? Shall we gather strength by irresolution and inaction? Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance, by lying supinely on our backs, and hugging the delusive phantom of hope, until our enemies shall have bound us hand and foot? Sir, we are not weak if we make a proper use of those means which the God of nature hath placed in our power. Three millions of people, armed in the holy cause of liberty, and in such a country as that which we possess, are invincible by any force which our enemy can send against us. Besides, sir, we shall not fight our battles alone. There is a just God who presides over the destinies of nations; and who will raise up friends to fight our battles for us. The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave. Besides, sir, we have no election. If we were base enough to desire it, it is now too late to retire from the contest. There is no retreat but in submission and slavery! Our chains are forged! Their clanking may be heard on the plains of Boston! The war is inevitable²and let it come! I repeat it, sir, let it come.

    It is in vain, sir, to extenuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry, Peace, Peace but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!

    "Because everybody's tooth aches in the same way, everybody loves their mother, everybody loves or hates spinach. And those are the things that really count." - Jacques Brel

    "It is known that there are an infinite number of worlds, simply because there is an infinite amount of space for them to be in. However, not every one of them is inhabited. Therefore, there must be a finite number of inhabited worlds. Any finite number divided by infinity is as near to nothing as makes no odds, so the average population of all the planets in the Universe can be said to be zero. From this it follows that the population of the whole Universe is also zero, and any people you may meet from time to time are merely the products of a deranged imagination." - Douglas Adams

    "Tell a man there are 300 billion stars in the universe and he'll believe you. Tell him a bench has wet paint on it and he'll have to touch it to be sure."
