Oh yes, I love the series! It is quite hefty but it never gets boring. The main character is such a crazy lovable genius. If you are as big of a fan of wit and sarcasm as I am, then you'll like the series too :)

"First they came for the communists, and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a communist.

Then they came for the trade unionists, and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a trade unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a Jew.

Then they came for the Catholics, and I didn't speak out because I was Protestant.

Then they came for me, and there was no one left to speak out for me."

It's only one of the best movies ever made, and one based on a true story at that. It was made in 1993 by Steven Spielberg, and Liam Neeson played the main character, Schindler, a German businessman who was responsible for saving 1,200 Jews from Auschwitz. Here's a trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W74jGQ-CDTE

"Carry my soul into the night
May the stars guide my way
I glory in the sight
As darkness takes the day

Ferte in noctem animam meam
Illustre stelle viam meam.
Aspectu illo glorior
Dum capit nox diem.

Cantate vitae canticum
Sine dolore acte
Dicite eis quos amabam
Numquam obliviscar

Sing a song, a song of life
Made without regret
Tell the ones, the ones I loved
I never will forget,
I never will forget."

-A deleted song from the Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince movie (you should watch the original scene from the movie - it's very moving and a shame that it was deleted - the look on Snape's face was just so painful: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cX08rm5jUwE)

"We could go for a generation without the doctors, and it would get ugly if you were injured or sick, but civilization would continue. We could go for a generation without engineers or mechanics, and things would break down, but civilization would survive. We could even go for a generation without teachers. The next generation would have to play 'catch up ball,' and it would be hard, but civilization as we know it would still survive.

If however, we went 'but a single generation' without the warriors who are willing to confront human agression every day, then within the span of that generation we would truly be 'both damned and doomed.'"

-Lt. Col. Dave Grossman, from his book (written with Loren W. Christensen) On Combat: The Psychology of Deadly Conflict in War and in Peace

36Tavaresden
Feb 11, 2012, 9:20am Top

Hmm, what a thoughtful statement! The problem is that, if everyone thinks like that, wouldn't it just increase human aggression? It's a very interesting cycle.

On the flip side, I got another quote:

"Always being so strong when others can't. That's...well, it's sort of heroic."
It's sort of idiotic," I replied, my voice dry. "Heroism doesn't pay very well. I try to be cold-blooded and money-oriented, but I keep screwing it up."

- Dead Beat

37ErisofDiscord
Feb 11, 2012, 11:29am Top

What Grossman was saying is that civilization could continue without doctors, engineers, etc., although it would be a more aggressive and rough existence. But if you do not have someone there to protect you against evil, you will die, and then civilization will come to a screeching halt, because everyone is dead.

Harry: Right. First we need to find a place to practice where Umbridge won't find out.
Ginny: The Shrieking Shack?
Harry: It's to small.
Hermione: Forbidden Forest?
Ron: Not bloody likely.
Ginny: Harry, what happens if Umbridge does find out?
Hermione: Who cares? I mean, it's sort of exciting, isn't it, breaking the rules.
Ron: Who are you and what have you done with Hermione Granger?

I wanted to share this quote with you guys because I just read this Sarah Dessen book and thought it was pretty good.

“It was terrible and awful when someone left you. You could move on, do the best you could, but like Eli had said, an ending was an ending. No matter how many pages of sentences and paragraphs of great stories led up to it, it would always have to have the last word.”
― Sarah Dessen, Along for the Ride

The lentil is perhaps the world's most versatile, indestructible food. One can eat the lentil unadorned; marry it off to it's first cousin, the oafish "bulgur"; or attempt to drown it in harsh vinegar for a "vegan salad". But the lentil, alas, will always survive. Indeed, at the Packwood house, the tenacious little legume will forcibly resurrect, as free,of anything resembling taste as ever, and insinuate its indefatigable, pelletlike self onto yet another dinner plate, expecting to be eaten. Again, and again, and again.---Lucius Vladescu in Jessica's Guide to Dating on the Dark Side.

“Only twenty-two of the original twenty-five in Drizzt's class remained.  One had been dismissed – and subsequently executed – for a foiled assassination attempt on a high-ranking student, a second had been killed in the practice arena, and a third had died in his bunk of natural causes – for a dagger in the heart quite naturally ends one's life.”

Quotes from the Fault in our stars by John Green
1. “I fell in love the way you fall asleep: slowly, then all at once.”
2. “My thoughts are stars I cannot fathom into constellations.”
3. “That's the thing about pain...it demands to be felt.
4. “Some people don't understand the promises they're making when they make them," I said.
"Right, of course. But you keep the promise anyway. That's what love is. Love is keeping the promise anyway.”
5. “The marks humans leave are too often scars.”
6. “Oh, I wouldn't mind, Hazel Grace. It would be a privilege to have my heart broken by you.”
7. “Grief does not change you, Hazel. It reveals you.”
8. “The world is not a wish-granting factory.”
9. “And I wondered if hurdlers ever thought, you know, 'This would go faster if we just got rid of the hurdles.”
10. “Because you are beautiful. I enjoy looking at beautiful people, and I decided a while ago not to deny myself the simpler pleasures of existence
11. “But it is the nature of stars to cross, and never was Shakespeare more wrong than when he has Cassius note, ‘The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars / But in ourselves.”

I was going through my Discworld books today, looking for quotes to use in an embroidery sampler. Here are a few of my favorites:

"What can the harvest hope for, if not for the care of the reaper man?" -Reaper Man

"People's whole lives do pass in front of their eyes before they die. The process is called 'living'." -not sure which book, one of the Death stories.

"Humans need fantasy to be human. To be the place where the falling angel meets the rising ape." -Hogfather

I think it's funny that most of my favorite lines are from Death.

From Steve Jobs' biography, quoting Jean-Louis Gassée, Apple's manager in France:

“I am a recovering assaholic.  So I could recognize that in Steve.” (pg 185)

Though still young, I can identify.  I may not have been as severe as these men, but I don't mind.  I'm glad I could set foot on path to recovery so sooner.  I'm also glad this fine Frenchman has put a word to it.
