    "Communism... is the genuine resolution of the antagonism between man and nature and between man and man; it is the true resolution of the conflict between existence and essence, objectification and self-affirmation, freedom and necessity, individual and species. It is the riddle of history solved and knows itself as the solution." Карл Маркс

    "Proletarier aller Länder, vereinigt euch!" K. Marx


    "The oppressed are allowed once every few years to decide which particular representatives of the oppressing class are to represent and repress them." K. Marx

    "Go on, get out. Last words are for fools who haven't said enough." K. Marx's last words

    And meet them all alike
    When you are the anvil, bear
    But when the hammer, strike!"

    There names? Where, Why and When
    And How and What and Who?" - Rudyard Kipling

    Wisdom comes from experience and experience comes just after you need it.

    (so in theory a wise person has been through everything and lived to tell the tail, or has an over-active imagination)

    and

    If I hadn't seen such riches I'd still be content with being poor.

    both are kept in mind when understanding things. ;)

    It's a shame he cocked it up - it was supposed to be "small step for a man" (if you think about it, in the cocked up version, man and mankind mean the same thing, so it doesn't really make sense)

    As for quotes, one of my favourites is:

    I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by. - Douglas Adams

    (which was also paraphrased in one of the Pirates of the Caribbean films, I think)

    "Never underestimate the pradictibility of stupidity" - Bullet Tooth Tony in Snatch

    or, some fantastic parliament banter...

    Lady Nancy Astor: Winston, if I were your wife, I'd poison your tea.
    Churchill: Nancy, if I were your husband, I'd drink it.

    or

    Bessie Braddock: Sir, you are drunk.
    Churchill: And you, madam, are ugly. But in the morning, I shall be sober.

    When you can flatten entire cities at a whim, a tendency towards quiet reflection and seeing-things-from-the-other-fellow' s-point- of-view is seldom necessary.
