Hey guys –
Thought it might be interesting to compare popular Type traits against famous (and not so famous) quotes.
If you recognize the author, try not to let your impressions change your assessment.
Feel free to offer additional quotes alongside your appraisals.
1. “If I have see further than any man, it is because I have stood upon the shoulders of giants.”
2. “What the fuck are you talking about? The chinaman is not the issue here, Dude. I'm talking about drawing a line in the sand, Dude. Across this line, you DO NOT... Also, Dude, chinaman is not the preferred nomenclature. Asian-American, please.”
3. “Life itself is only a dream; a vision. Nothing exists save empty space and you. And you are but a thought…”
4. “There is an idea of a Patrick Bateman; some kind of abstraction. But there is no real me: only an entity, something illusory. And though I can hide my cold gaze, and you can shake my hand and feel flesh gripping yours and maybe you can even sense our lifestyles are probably comparable... I simply am not there…”
5. “No, no, no. A vigilante is just a man lost in the scramble for his own gratification. He can be destroyed, or locked up. But if you make yourself more than just a man, if you devote yourself to an ideal, and if they can't stop you, then you become something else entirely.”
6. “The human being realizes that we are all one – not as an idea, but as a fact. When you go to India, you see the misery of people, running to their petty little gods whom they have created for themselves…”
7. “Ever dance with the devil in the pale moonlight?”
8. “The dreams of youth are the regrets of maturity.”
9. English - Who needs that? I'm never going to England!
