    It is much better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.

    I'm a geek, so all the following quotes are from sci fi movies I like...


    "Fate, it seems, is not without a sense of irony." -Morpheus, The Matrix

    "Do not try to bend the spoon, that's impossible. Instead, only try to realize the truth."
    "What Truth?"
    "There is no spoon." - Neo and child, Oracle's waiting room, The Matrix

    "Your eyes deceive you, don't trust them. Let go your conscious self, and act on instinct." - Ben Kenobi, Millennium Falcon, Star Wars Ep. IV A New Hope.


    Although these quotes are all theatrically derived, I find them easily applied to reality. I'll get more, I have a buttload of favorite philosophical quotes...

    "Whenever I'm in doubt, I ask myself, 'What would Jesus do?' And then I realize, Jesus got crucified, so maybe his decision-making isn't all that great."
    -Oscar Wilde. Taken from uncyclopedia.

    Yes it could have happened very well the other way round if your views were different before U let it happen.

    Aha! But you couldn't have had different views either, because you too are part of the system. Determinism, you know.
