Wisdom of the Doctor...

"Anybody remotely interesting is mad in some way."

"There's no point being grown-up if you can't be childish sometimes."

"You can't rule the world in hiding. You've got to come out on the balcony sometimes and wave a tentacle."

"The very powerful and the very stupid have one thing in common. They don't alter their views to fit the facts. They alter the facts to fit their views. Which can be uncomfortable if you happen to be one of the facts that needs altering."

"Answers are easy. It's asking the right questions which is hard."

"As a nation, we began by declaring that "All men are created equal." We now practically read it, "All men are created equal, except Negroes." Soon, it will read "All men are created equal, except Negroes, and Foreigners and Catholics." When it comes to this, I should prefer emigrating to some country where they make no pretense of loving liberty. To Russia, for instance, where despotism can be taken pure and without the base alloy of hypocrisy" --Abraham Lincoln

a bit of actual, slightly inspirational wisdom:
If you can't get someone out of your head, perhaps they're supposed to be there.

it's okay to be different; the people that care don't matter and the people that matter don't care.

and some funny ones:
Jesus loves you; everyone else thinks you're an asshole.

Never try to argue with an idiot. they'll only drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.

when life hands you lemons, make orange juice and the world will wonder how you did it.

and my favorite quote from Albert Einstien:
I know not with what weapons WW3 will be fought with, but WW4 will be fought with sticks and stones.

I have seen tragedies that ended in emptiness, Injustices that defy reason, Love that would light the very stars turned cold and hard. I have seen torments that cannot possibly be borne, yet must be... and the newbies shall live and breathe in the depths of such destructions...

The best attack is a surprise attack.  So the best defense is to attack them before they think of attacking you.
