I`ve been collecting quotes that I like for about a year. Some are positive and uplifting, others are brutally honest and some are clever and witty.
I may come back later and update this with more quotes.

I decided to post this as a journal since it fits my criteria for a journal better than an editorial.
If I`ve put the wrong name under a quote let me know and I`ll come back later and edit it.

Gandhi's Seven Sins: Wealth without work; Pleasure without conscience; Knowledge without character; Commerce without morality; Science without humanity; Worship without sacrifice; Politics without principle

"Feminism is the radical notion that women are people."
―Cheris Kramarae and Paula Treichler

"The only thing we have to fear is fear itself."
"The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much; it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little."
―Franklin D Roosevelt

"Be pretty if you can, be witty if you must, but be gracious if it kills you."
―Elsie de Wolfe

"Men never do evil so completely and cheerfully as when they do it from religious conviction"
―Blaise Pascal

"The good thing about science is that it's true whether or not you believe in it."
― Neil DeGrasse Tyson

"Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored."
― Aldous Huxley

"I would like to get rid of the homophobes, sexists, and racists in our audience. I know they're out there and it really bothers me."
― Kurt Cobain

"You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something, sometime in your life."
― Winston Churchill

"To succeed in life, you need two things: ignorance and confidence."
"Loyalty to a petrified opinion never yet broke a chain or freed a human soul."
― Mark Twain

"Intelligence without ambition is a bird without wings."
—Salvador Dali

"Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will."
"First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win."
―Mahatma Gandhi

"Corporations have no consciences, no beliefs, no feelings, no thoughts, no desires. Corporations help structure and facilitate the activities of human beings, to be sure, and their 'personhood' often serves as a useful legal fiction. But they are not themselves members of “We the People” by whom and for whom our Constitution was established."
―Supreme Court Justice Stevens, January 2010 (Citizens United Dissent)

"In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist."
"A people that values it`s privileges above it`s principles soon loses both."
―Dwight D. Eisenhower

"I used to think that the worst thing in life was to end up all alone.
It`s not.
The worst thing in life is to end up with people who make you feel all alone."
―Robin Williams

"It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society."
―Jiddu Krishnamurti

"You are entitled to your informed opinion. No one is entitled to be ignorant."
―Harlan Ellison

"Take the 1st job you can in the industry you want to get into. The job doesn't matter, getting your foot in the door does."
"The first monster you have to scare the audience with is yourself.”
―Wes Craven

"Learn from the mistakes of others. You can’t live long enough to make them all yourself."
―Eleanor Roosevelt

"Sympathy is the strongest instinct in human nature."
― Charles Darwin

"Getting a movie made in Hollywood is like trying to grill a steak by having a succession of people coming into the room and breathing on it."
―Douglas Adams

"Being a good writer is 3% talent, 97% not being distracted by the internet."

"If we don`t believe in freedom of expression for people we despise, we don`t believe in it at all."
―Virginia Wolf

"Life isn't divided into genres. It's a horrifying, romantic, tragic, comical, science-fiction cowboy detective novel. You know, with a bit of pornography if you're lucky."
"To me, all creativity is magic. Ideas start out in the empty void of your head - and they end up as a material thing, like a book you can hold in your hand. That is the magical process. It's an alchemical thing. Yes, we do get the gold out of it but that's not the most important thing. It's the work itself. That's the reward. That's better than money."
―Alan Moore

"As my father used to tell me, the only true sign of success in life is being able to do for a living that which makes you happy."
―"Weird Al" Yankovic

"Isn`t it interesting how one singing voice is (while subjective) good or bad but a CROWD singing is ALWAYS beautiful"
―Lady Gaga

"If your regime is not strong enough to handle a joke, then you don't have a regime."
―Jon Stewart

"You don't have to be the bad guy. You are the most talented, most interesting, and most extraordinary person in the universe. And you are capable of amazing things. Because you are the Special. And so am I. And so is everyone. The prophecy is made up, but it's also true. It's about all of us. Right now, it's about you. And you... still... can change everything."
―Emmet Brickowoski- The Lego movie

"You're not stupid. Okay? You're not stupid. Don't ever tell yourself that you are. You're important. What you have in your head may not mean a lot to a lot of people, but it's what makes you special. You are important. You mean something. And you're gonna go out there, and you're gonna do some wonderful things. But first and foremost, you're not stupid. You're not an idiot. Don't ever tell yourself that you are. And if nobody else ever tells you this, I will tell you this, I care about you."
―Justin "JewWario" Carmical

I´m a film and comicbook loving cartoonist who hopes to one day be known for my comics and drawings.
I figured Deviantart would be a good place to start.

I don´t drink or smoke.

You can also find me at

If it´s the first time you fav something of mine I´ll send a thank you message.

If I send a thank you message to some one I´ve already thanked it´s because I´ve either forgotten that you´ve already fav´d me, or you have too many messages on your favourites pages and I´m too lazy to check all of them to see if I´ve thanked you already.
