Socrates quotes

"By all means, marry. If you get a good wife, you'll become happy; if you get a bad one, you'll become a philosopher."

"Employ your time in improving yourself by other men's writings, so that you shall gain easily what others have labored hard for."

"Death may be the greatest of all human blessings."

"From the deepest desires often come the deadliest hate."

"Let him that would move the world first move himself."

"Once made equal to man, woman becomes his superior."

"Ordinary people seem not to realize that those who really apply themselves in the right way to philosophy are directly and of their own accord preparing themselves for dying and death."

"Worthless people live only to eat and drink; people of worth eat and drink only to live."

"Where there is reverence there is fear, but there is not reverence everywhere that there is fear, because fear presumably has a wider extension than reverence."

"True wisdom comes to each of us when we realize how little we understand about life, ourselves, and the world around us."

Stephen King quotes

"When his life was ruined, his family killed, his farm destroyed, Job knelt down on the ground and yelled up to the heavens, "Why god? Why me?" and the thundering voice of God answered, There's just something about you that pisses me off."

"If you don't have time to read, you don't have the time (or the tools) to write. Simple as that."

"Get busy living or get busy dying."

"Good books don't give up all their secrets at once."

"Fiction is the truth inside the lie."

"If you liked being a teenager, there's something really wrong with you."

"Both Rowling and Meyer, they’re speaking directly to young people. … The real difference is that Jo Rowling is a terrific writer and Stephenie Meyer can’t write worth a darn. She’s not very good."

"Speaking personally, you can have my gun, but you'll take my book when you pry my cold, dead fingers off of the binding."

"Life isn't a support system for art. It's the other way around."

"Writing isn't about making money, getting famous, getting dates, getting laid, or making friends. In the end, it's about enriching the lives of those who will read your work, and enriching your own life, as well. It's about getting up, getting well, and getting over. Getting happy, okay? Getting happy."

"You are the grim, goal-oriented ones who will not believe that the joy is in the journey rather than the destination no matter how many times it has been proven to you."

"No one ever does live happily ever after, but we leave the children to find that out for themselves."

"First comes smiles, then lies. Last is gunfire.-Roland Deschain, of Gilead"

My all time favorite book series is the Dark Tower series written by Stephen King. Over the two months I read those seven books I probably learned more about life then I had in the past sixteen years of my life.
