"Words - so innocent and powerless as they are, as standing in a dictionary, how potent for good and evil they become in the hands of one who knows how to combine them." ~ Nathanial Hawthorne 1804-1864
"People do not like to think. If one thinks, one must reach conclusions. Conclusions are not always pleasant." ~ Helen Keller 1880-1968
Below are some of the quotes I have collected from my journeys around the internet. Although in a thread on Abovetopsecret.com titled "Addressing the JFK "Secret Society" Speech...," its important to understand that quotes can be presented out of text and when read in its entire context can apply to something totally different from what is perceived. I have researched most of the quotes here to make sure they don't, however keep it in mind whenever you do read quotes on the internet.
"What is 'real'? How do you define 'real'? If you mean what we can taste, smell, hear and feel then what's 'real' is nothing more than electrical signals interpreted by your brain."
"Strange times are these in which we live
when old and young are taught in falsehoods school.
And the one man that dares to tell the truth
is called at once a lunatic and fool"
"He who asks a question is a fool for five minutes; he who does not ask a question remains a fool forever"
"The americans apetite for bogus revelation Mr Mulder"
"If we don't believe in freedom of expression for people we despise, we don't believe in it at all."
"The best way to control the opposition is to lead it."
"Every time we do something you tell me America will do this and will do that . . . I want to tell you something very clear: Don't worry about American pressure on Israel. We, the Jewish people, control America, and the Americans know it."
"The alternative 'Patriot' news world is thoroughly penetrated and controlled by agents and operatives... from talk shows and net sites, to documentary producers and columnists. Beware."
Anonymous, source unknown, but i could well believe it!
"It is discouraging to think how many people are shocked by honesty and how few by deceit"
"Fascism should rightly be called corporatism, as it is the merger of state and corporate power"
"The Treaty of Rome, which brought the Common Market into being, was nurtured at Bilderberg meetings."
"I don't think it's true to say that we want to keep it [Bilderberg] out [of the public consciousness], we never wanted to get it in. We don't encourage people to mention it in the mainstream press because we don't encourage idle speculation about what we do. ...... We forbid individual attendees from giving press meetings at our conferences, and we do that not because we're secrecy mad, but because we want to control the politicians who come."

"Their motivation is, that the elite shall be able to act in secrecy. It is not because they are evil, but because they believe in what they are doing. International capital wants to remove all obstacles to globalisation - and all obstacles to the right of capital to act freely without constrictions such as regard for the environment, social responsibility or human rights. Demands from local democracies are such obstacles."
"Globalisation is the new Totalitarianism"

"There is an ancient indian saying that somthing lives only as long as the last person who remembers it. My people have come to trust memory over history. Memory, like fire, is radiant and immutable. While history serves only those who seek to control it, those who would douse the flame of memory, in order to put out the dangerouse fire of truth. Beware of these men, for they are dangerouse themselves, and unwise. Their false history is written in the blood of those who might remember, and of those who seek the truth."
"Wild, dark times are rumbling toward us, and the prophet who wishes to write a new apocalypse will have to invent entirely new beasts, and beasts so terrible that the ancient animal symbols of St. John will seem like cooing doves and cupids in comparison."
"Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it"
"Be the change you wish to see in the world."

"The lie is different at every level"
"If sacred places are spared the ravages of war, then make all places sacred. And if holy people are to be kept harmless from war, then make all people Holy.
"That which has been is what will be, That which is done is what will be done, And there is nothing new under the sun. Is there anything of which it may be said, "See, this is new?" It has already been in ancient times before us."
"If a man is offered a fact which goes against his instincts, he will scrutinize it closely, and unless the evidence is overwhelming, he will refuse to believe it. If, on the other hand, he is offered something which affords a reason for acting in accordance with his instincts, he will accept it even on the slenderest evidence. The origin of myths is explained in this way"
"The only way of discovering the limits of the possible is to venture a little way past them into the impossible."
Few people are capable of expressing with equanimity opinions which differ from the prejudices of their social environment. Most people are even incapable of forming such opinions.
"They are not worried about what you know, they are concerned about what you can prove".
"The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he, who in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of the darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And i will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. and you will know my name is the lord when i lay my vengeance upon thee."

"Real vision is the ability to see the invisible"
"In our obsession with antagonisms of the moment, we often forget how much unites all the members of humanity. Perhaps we need some outside, universal threat to make us recognize this common bond. I occasionally think, how quickly our differences worldwide would vanish if we were facing an alien threat from outside this world. And yet, I ask is not an alien force already among us?"
"It is better to be hated for what you are than to be loved for something you are not."
"Americans find out, only when they are outside their country, that the world is different from what they imagine."
"We cannot take the credit for our record advancement in certain scientific fields alone; we have been helped."

"The people of other worlds."
Cryptically stated by Dr. Herman Oberth 1894-1989 (The father of modern rocketry)
"He's a great humanitarian, he's a great philanthropist
He knows just where to touch you, honey, and how you like to be kissed
He'll put both his arms around you
You can feel the tender touch of the beast
You know that sometimes Satan comes as a man of peace"
"Life is tough, it's tougher if you're stupid"
"It is perfectly possible for a man to be out of prison, and yet not free - to be under no physical constraint and yet to be a psychological captive, compelled to think, feel and act as the representatives of the national state, or of some private interest within the nation, wants him to think, feel and act.
The nature of psychological compulsion is such that those who act under constraint remain under the impression that they are acting on their own initiative. The victim of mind-manipulation does not know that he is a victim. To him the walls of his prison are invisible, and he believes himself to be free. That he is not free is apparent only to other people. His servitude is strictly objective."
"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear"
"The governments of the present day have to deal not merely with other governments, with emperors, kings and ministers, but also with the secret societies which have everywhere their unscrupulous agents, and can at the last moment upset all the governments plans."
"Terrorism is the best political weapon for nothing drives people harder than a fear of sudden death."
"The soul is the perceiver and revealer of truth. We know the truth when we see it, let skeptic and scoffer say what they choose. Foolish people ask you, when you have spoken what they do not wish to hear, "How do you know it is truth, and not an error of your own?" We know truth when we see it, from opinion, as we know when we are awake that we are awake."
"In my mind, there is no question that they're out there. My Career is well established. My texts books are required reading in all the major capitals on planet earth. If you want to become a physicist to learn about the unified field theory-you read my books. Therefore, I'm in a position to say: Yes- Most likely they're out there."
"Imagination is more important than Knowledge"
"Ridicule and denial are just as effective as murder and repression, if managed professionally and cleverly enough."
"People of the earth can you hear me,
Came a voice from the sky on that magical night.
And in the colors of a thousand sunsets,
they traveled to the world on a silvery light.
The people of the earth stood waiting,
watching as the ships came one by one.
Setting fire to the sky as they landed,
carrying to the world children of the sun."
"Peace and friendship with all mankind is our wisest policy, and I wish we may be permitted to pursue it. But the temper and folly of our enemies may not leave this in our choice; the price of liberty is constant vigilance."
"A clandestine and highly illegal group exists that has actively suppressed these technologies -even up to the present hour. More than one scientist with whom we are now working has been threatened, had his work sabotaged or confiscated and generally terrorized into a paralyzing silence. This, while we march into one oil war after another. This operation, a hybrid trans-national entity that has shadowy ties to the military, intelligence, laboratory, corporate and institutional communities (and yet is controlled by none) operates like a highly functional organized crime group, and has ruled by terror for decades. Indeed the Big Terror is the one that remains unacknowledged and unchallenged, while we dash around the world chasing the blowback from our failed, decades-long policy of oil dependency."
"The recent terrorists attacks will be a fond memory compared to future events unless we collectively act to correct this situation. Even the Pentagon has recently warned of the possibility of a sudden, catastrophic climate change related to global warming that could plunge the earth into environmental, social and military chaos. Are we to sit by idly while the solution to this crisis sits locked away in illegal 'black' military and corporate projects -projects funded by US taxpayer monies and withheld by an entrenched kleptocracy hell-bent on control - at all costs?"
"This is our world now... the world of the electron and the switch, the beauty of the baud. We make use of a service already existing without paying for what could be dirt-cheap if it wasn't run by profiteering gluttons, and you call us criminals. We explore... and you call us criminals. We seek after knowledge... and you call us criminals. We exist without skin color, without nationality, without religious bias... and you call us criminals. You build atomic bombs, you wage wars, you murder, cheat, and lie to us and try to make us believe it's for our own good, yet we're the criminals."
"What difference does it make to the dead, the orphans and the homeless, whether the mad destruction is wrought under the name of totalitarianism or the holy name of liberty or democracy?"
"All it takes for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing."
"Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only Love can do that."
"At times one has to deal with hidden enemies, intangible influences that slink into dark corners and from this hiding affect people by suggestion. In instances like this, it is necessary to trace these things back to the most secret recesses, in order to determine the nature of the influences to be dealt with. This is the task of priests; removing the influences is the task of the magicians. The very anonymity of such plotting requires an especially vigorous and indefatigable effort, but this is well worth while. For when such elusive influences are brought into the light and branded, they lose their power over people."
"The internet is a reflection of our society and that mirror is going to be reflecting what we see. If we do not like what we see in that mirror the problem is not to fix the mirror, we have to fix society."
"They are using a very primative dialect, but I do believe that they think I am some sort of god."
"The power of the Executive to cast a man into prison without formulating any charge known to the law, and particularly to deny him the judgment of his peers, is in the highest degree odious and is the foundation of all totalitarian government whether Nazi or Communist."
A Native American grandfather was talking to his grandson about how he felt after a tragedy. He said, "I feel as if I have two wolves fighting in my heart One wolf is the vengeful, angry, violent one. The other wolf is the loving, compassionate one." The grandson asked him, "Which wolf will win the fight in your heart?" The grandfather answered, "The one I feed."
"Of course it is possible that UFO's really do contain aliens as many people believe, and the Government is hushing it up."
"Given the millions of billions of Earth-like planets, life elsewhere in the Universe without a doubt, does exist. In the vastness of the Universe we are not alone."
"It is my thesis that flying saucers are real and that they are space ships from another solar system.There is no doubt in my mind that these objects are interplanetary craft of some sort. I and my colleagues are confident that they do not originate in our solar system."
"I can assure you that flying saucers, given that they exist, are not constructed by any power on earth"
"I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched c-beams glitter in the dark near the Tanhauser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. [pause] Time to die"
"When you eliminate the impossible, whatever is left, no matter how improbable, must be the truth."
