Default Favorite Quotes

A thread for favorite quotes of all types - philosophical, inspirational, humorous, whatever....

Since we are a poly forum, here's one to start it off.

"Love is that condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to your own... Jealousy is a disease, love is a healthy condition. The immature mind often mistakes one for the other, or assumes that the greater the love, the greater the jealousy."

Robert A. Heinlein
(Stranger in a Strange Land)

"To see ourselves as we are, we must begin by acknowledging that of all Earth's creatures, none is as urgently, creatively, and constantly sexual as Homo sapiens."

Kevin - I just finished this book, and found it to be a very engaging and interesting read. I would highly recommend it for those who are perhaps reconsidering the nature of monogamy, a position that I found myself in a couple of years back - wish I had read it sooner! I've been considering writing a more extended post about this book so will just leave it at that for the moment. Al

“Some humans would do anything to see if it was possible to do it. If you put a large switch in some cave somewhere, with a sign on it saying 'End-of-the-World Switch. PLEASE DO NOT TOUCH', the paint wouldn't even have time to dry.”

Hi, I really like the quote Timur Artemyev : "I want to live young for more than 120 years." At first, I did not attach much importance to her, but then I read an article that says that Timur Artemyev is a charitable organization that supports research on aging, to solve the problems of a rapidly aging population, reduce the suffering of older people and reduce the impact of disease on future generations. . After this article, I realized that there is an opportunity to extend our lives. Therefore, this quote is now my favorite.

“Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing
and rightdoing there is a field.
I’ll meet you there.
When the soul lies down in that grass
the world is too full to talk about.”
~Rumi
