    List your phrase, that just might change someone's life forever. Try your best not to troll, I know it's tempting but show restraint please.
    Here are a handful of my top picks.

    "Art is a step from what is obvious and well-known toward what is arcane and concealed."

    "Can't find a door, make your own!"

    "Sometimes we need to be productive, and not just busy."

    "When you're not afraid anymore, you don't crave power because you realize you already have it."


    Feel free to add your own.

    These are my favorites:

    "If it was easy, everyone would do it"

    "It is the working man who is the happy man. It is the idle man who is the miserable man."

    "Without a struggle there can be no progress"

    "Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or an hour, or a day, or a year, but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. If I quit, however, it lasts forever."

    Should even one's enemy arrive at the doorstep, he should be attended upon with respect. A tree does not withdraw its cooling shade even from the one who has come to cut it.

    An arrow reaches its destination, only after it is pulled back, So if life pulls you back with difficulties, Note that it is going to launch you into Victory!

    Liberated from the grip of egoism, like the moon (after the eclipse), full, ever blissful, self-luminous, one attains one's essence.

    The whole universe is a projection of the mind; therefore it is a mode of the mind. The true nature of the mind is bliss, and when the mind is stilled, absolute bliss is revealed.

    Emptiness the starting point. — In order to taste my cup of water you must first empty your cup. My friend, drop all your preconceived and fixed ideas and be neutral. Do you know why this cup is useful? Because it is empty.

    If I had never lived, someone else would probably have formulated the principle of determinacy. If Beethoven had never lived, no one would have written Opus 111.

    Better indeed is knowledge than mechanical practice. Better than knowledge is meditation. But better still is surrender of attachment to results, because there follows immediate peace.

    As different as we have been taught to look at each other by colonial society, we are in the same struggle and until we realize that, we'll be fighting for scraps from the table of a system that has kept us subservient instead of being self-determined.

    Modern civilization is a patchwork of activities meant to cover the perpetual miseries of material existence.

    Today I read Reword by the 37Signals guys, and this line caught my attention:

    "The only experience that counts is success."

    I keep these in my notes to remind myself, some are physicist, others are personal:

    Once we accept our limits, we go beyond them.God does not play dice. I want to know his thoughts.
    Politics is for the present, an equation is for eternity.
    Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination anywhere.
    Time is what prevents everything happening at once.
    If you want a thing done well, do it yourself.
    Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known.
    Inspiration is an unlimited source of power.
    Your theory is crazy, but it's not crazy enough to be true.
    History is a set of lies agreed upon by those in power.
    If you want unexpected results you must merge random code.
    You wish for apple pie? Then you must first invent the universe.
    The past, present and future are an illusion for it is the same dimension.
    Revenge is an ability that sharpens our senses and abilities. If used, bite to kill, not to weaken.

    Some of Voltair's quotes are also pretty good.
