Imagine there's no heaven,
It's easy if you try,
No hell below us,
Above us only sky,
Imagine all the people
living for today...

Imagine there's no countries,
It isnt hard to do,
Nothing to kill or die for,
No religion too,
Imagine all the people
living life in peace...

Imagine no possesions,
I wonder if you can,
No need for greed or hunger,
A brotherhood of man,
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world...

You may say Im a dreamer,
but Im not the only one,
I hope some day you'll join us,
And the world will live as one.

-John Lennon --> Imagine


Another turning point, a fork stuck in the road.
Time grabs you by the wrist, directs you where to go.
So make the best of this test, and don't ask why.
It's not a question, but a lesson learned in time.

It's something unpredictable, but in the end is right.
I hope you had the time of your life.

So take the photographs, and still frames in your mind.
Hang it on a shelf in good health and good time.
Tattoos of memories and dead skin on trial.
For what it's worth, it was worth all the while.

-Green Day --> Good Riddance (Time of Your Life)


"If I had a rocket launcher some son of a bitch would die."
-Bruce Cockburn --> If I had a rocket launcher

That was the last line of the song. the song is about the horrible treatment inflicted by the government of civilians in Central America around 1984.

"Is that the best turing can do?"
(in response to santabruzer)
"Yes, yes it is."

Ender's Game quotes:
"Individual human beings are all tools, that the
others use to help us all survive." (Graff)

There was no doubt in Ender's mind. There was no
help for him. Whatever he faced, now and forever,
no one would save him from it. Peter might be
scum, but Peter had been right, always right; the
power to cause pain is the only power that
matters, the power to kill and destroy, because if
you can't kill you are always subject to those who
can, and nothing no one will ever save you.

"Human beings didn't evolve brains in order to lie
around on lakes. Killing is the first thing we
learned. And a good thing we did, or we'd be dead,
and the tigers would rule the earth." (Valentine)

"There is no teacher but the enemy."
(Mazer Rackham)

"Welcome to the human race. Nobody controls his
own life, Ender. The best you can do is choose to
be controlled by good people, by people who love
you." (Valentine)
