An Abundance of Quotes Part 17

The majority of today's quotes stolen from Thief of Words' tumblr.

"All progress is experimental." - John Jay Chapman

"Always read something that will make you look good if you die in the middle of it." - P.J. O'Rourke

“The greatest crimes in the world are not committed by people breaking the rules but by people following the rules. It’s people who follow orders that drop bombs and massacre villages” - Banksy (his art is awesome. Go find one of his books.)

“The first time someone shows you who they are, believe them.” - Maya Angelou

“The beauty of truth: whether it is bad or good, it is liberating.” - Paul Coelho

“You want weapons? We’re in a library. Books! Best weapons in the world. This room’s the greatest arsenal we could have. Arm yourself!” - The Doctor

“Compassion hurts. When you feel connected to everything, you also feel responsible for everything. And you cannot turn away. Your destiny is bound with the destinies of others. You must either learn to carry the Universe or be crushed by it. You must grow strong enough to love the world, yet empty enough to sit down at the same table with its worst horrors.” - Andrew Boy

As you read this, I am probably sitting in a car. Be glad you are not with me, because I have been in a car for a long time and have a long way yet to go.
