controversy quotes

And out of that hopeless attempt has come nearly all that we call human history—money, poverty, ambition, war, prostitution, classes, empires, slavery—the long terrible story of man trying to find something other than God which will make him happy
—  C.S Lewis

Great Banksy street art photos and quotes

“The greatest crimes in the world are not committed by people breaking the rules but by people following the rules. It’s people who follow orders that drop bombs and massacre villages”

“If you want to say something and have people listen then you have to
wear a mask. If you want to be honest then you have to live a lie.”

“Become good at cheating and you never need to become good at anything else.”

“People who get up early in the morning cause war, death and famine.”

’‘There are four basic human needs; food, sleep, sex and revenge.”

“Nothing in the world is more common than unsuccessful people with talent, leave the house before you find something worth staying in for. ”

“Think outside the box, collapse the box, and take a fucking sharp knife to it.”

“You’re mind is working at its best when you’re being paranoid. You explore every avenue and possibility of your situation at high speed with total clarity.”

How about we treat every man who wants to buy a gun like every young woman who wants an abortion - mandatory 48-hr waiting period, parental permission, a note from his doctor proving he understands what he’s about to do, a video he has to watch about the effects of gun violence, and an ultrasound wand up the ass (just because). Let’s close down all but one gun shop in every state and make him travel hundreds of miles, take time off work, and stay overnight in a strange town to get a gun. Make him walk through a gauntlet of people holding photos of loved ones who were shot to death, people who call him a murder and beg him not to buy a gun.

It makes more sense to do this with young men and guns than with woman and health care, right? I mean, no woman getting an abortion has killed a whole room full of people in seconds, right?

Falling in love with you wasn’t the first thing to came up in my mind, i didn’t fall in love with you because you told me that i liked you or just because you kissed me, that’s where all started.
I fell in love just because you made me feel in some other type of way and its not all the cheesy things people use to say every day like “the way you kiss me” “when you call me every night just because you can’t sleep” No. I did not fall in love in this way, i fell in love in a different but unhealthy way, crazy but anxious way, tender but so unreasonable. It’s crazy but it makes sense, i just cant describe, it feels different, complete.
You start feeling anxiety, not because you want to make everything fine, you start feeling it because this you’re having in your chest is not normal it doesn’t feel okay or good, it feels awesome there but you get so anxious just because is not usual.
I didn’t fall in love with you just because you never made the conversations at night with your crazy nicknames, No. I fell in love because you just called me at 3:00 am to tell me that you never thought that you would call someone at some random time like you just did, or just because you needed to hear my voice and give you some advice on things you were thinking at that time.
I didn’t fall in love because i wanted, i never did actually. It just happen and that’s the thing; we might some time need to stop searching things we don’t even know, maybe its the time when you stop and say ” ok I’m going to do this just because i want and it’ll be okay, I’m not going to do it because someone else want”. The thing, is that you made me realize that, you made me realize that i don’t need the things i want, its all better by surprises when you don’t know and whoa made your mind blow, you made me realize that i deserve opportunities, second chances, smiles, sad things, problems just to make clear that someone is going to be there, not who you wanted but someone who’s going to teach you another thing you didn’t know.
Maybe I didn’t fall in love before, but i fell for you.
