Holy crap quotes

Here are a lot of things I like:

I am convinced we do not only love ourselves in others but hate ourselves in others too. - Georg C. Lichtenberg

Mind and spirit together make up that which separates us from the rest of the animal world, that which enables a man to know the truth and that which enables him to die for the truth.- Edith Hamilton

People have to talk about something just to keep their voice boxes in working order so they'll have good voice boxes in case there's ever anything really meaningful to say. - Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.
