Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.

True love is like ghosts, which everyone talks about and few have seen.
Francois de La Rochefoucauld

I like it because it's true. I would also say it's like the aliens. Maybe love is invented...

I like this one:
A diplomat is a man who always remembers a woman's birthday but never remembers her age.

“I laugh, I love, I hope, I try, I hurt, I need, I fear, I cry. And I know you do the same things too, So we're really not that different, me and you.”

you can tell this quote to a girl, when she says you are "so different". Prove her wrong.
If a kid asks where rain comes from, I think a cute thing to tell him is "God is crying." And if he asks why God is crying, another cute thing to tell him is "Probably because of something you did."

Ok, so here it is a famous quote (especially in business):

Greed is good.

Greed works.

Greed clarifies, cuts through, and captures the essence of the evolutionary spirit.

Greed, in all of its forms -- greed for life, for money, for love, knowledge -- has marked the upward surge of mankind. 8-)

I remember these words from a movie, starring Michael Douglas. I forgot how it's called. The movie is about making money in New York.
So you Hakan seem to be very greedy, right?! :x

I cannot agree that greed didn't contribute to the evolution of the humankind, and should be treated only as a bad thing.
The economic competition is based on the greed aspect, and it marked the history with numerous innovations or even new inventions.

"Love truth, pardon error" - Voltaire.

I hate being lied to, and I always value the truth. I have a tendency to get real p***ed if someone lies to me but I need to just forgive and forget. It causes too many problems otherwise.
