A Sad Poem of References

by TheRebel2007


"In sooth, I know not why I am
sad," "Nothing is true, everything is permitted."
"Suddenly, I'm not half the man 
I used to be.." "... armed prophets always succeeded."

"All cruelty stems from weakness."
"To have lived without glory... is not to have lived
at all." "... pursuit of happiness."
"You will not get what you want but get what you need."

"To be, or not to be, that is
the question." "there was no good war nor a bad peace."
"Imagine there are no countries..."
"Cowards die a thousand times." "Ignorance is bliss."

"Where the world is not divided
into narrow domestic walls..." "It's vanity, 
all's vanity!" "Only the dead..."
"With great power comes great responsibility."

"We learn it from history that no
one has ever learnt from it." "... in the end, none's won"
"The world's a stage, Gratiano,
where every man plays a part, and mine a sad one."

Let's see who gets all the quotes...

Ooooooh I know some of these!

"Suddenly, I'm not half the man
I used to be.."

This one's from "Yesterday" by The Beatles

"All cruelty stems from weakness."

This one's by Lucius Something Seneca

"... pursuit of happiness."

This is one of those old forming-America documents, I just can't remember which one.

"You will not get what you want but get what you need."

I've heard this one a million times, I just don't know where it's from.

"To be, or not to be, that is
the question."

Shakespeare.

"Cowards die a thousand times." "Ignorance is bliss."

I've heard them both a lot, I dunno who originally said them, though.

"With great power comes great responsibility."

SPIDER-MAN HECK YEAH

Aaaaaaaand this is all I've got.






Wait when did I make this a review what-

Good try there! To be honest, I myself don't know about the "You will not get what you want but get what you need." one, I just heard it once in a Rolling Stones song. The full quote, "we hold these truths to be self-evident that all men are created equal, and they are endowed by their creator with certain inalienable rights, that among these are the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness" was written by Thomas Jefferson and edited by Benjamin Franklin in the Declaration of Independence. And, if I remember correctly, "Cowards die a thousand times" was from Julius Caesar and "Ignorance is Bliss" was from a Roman philosopher named Syrus.





WAIT YEAH I THINK YOU'RE RIGHT

Hmm…I’m guessing the Shakespeare quotes are=

1) In sooth, I know not why I am
sad,
2) To be, or not to be, that is
the question.
3) The world's a stage, Gratiano,
where every man plays a part, and mine a sad one

By the way, this was really cool. Maybe you could arrange the quotes as a collage or something and add some background+visual affects/ scene pics to it?

Tag me if you do that!

That is a nice idea! But I barely have enough graphics knowledge to do that. And thanks! :p

I couldn’t decode where the quotes came from,but I think the one about great power coming with great responsibility is from “The Avengers“ and is said by Thor.I could be wrong,though.Maybe that’s not where the quote originally came from.Maybe Thor didn’t even say it! But,I do think the actual poem is original and intresting.Good job! I hope you have a lovely and beautiful day and night.
