"I look up - many people feel small, because they're small and the universe is big, but I feel big, because my atoms came from those stars." 
 
Oh great. Some sort of cosmic caste system. How lovely. 
 
Seriously though... "I feel like a good person because my parents are good people." What? 
 
Feel-good quotes are okay once in a while, but I prefer substantial ones to inspirational ones (best is when they're both :) )

"First the doctor told me the good news: I was going to have a disease named after me."
This is the best.
My doctors still haven't found out what went wrong and caused the weird rash that I had, so I've been brainstorming potential-disease names. I think Katia has a nice ring to it, two syllables and all. You know, just in case. :)

Quantum: It's not a copout- a copout is when you're arguing with a smart person and you start to lose, so you end with 'whatever'. "Don't argue with idiots" is for when somebody is bent on insulting you more than they are convincing you. I remember a discussion I had on here that turned into a Mormon-bashing party- the purpose was no longer to explain doctrinal differences, it was to show that Mormons like me are the devil's spawn. Reading that Twain quote was what finally made me wise up and stop feeding the trolls- it died out soon after that. (I don't think any of the participants are even on here any more.)

"Oh great. Some sort of cosmic caste system. How lovely."
 
Well done. I literally was completely unaware that it was possible for the failure of understanding to reach such an asinine level. You've just set a new lower limit.
 
No, just... no. I think I just lost a couple IQ points. Here, just go watch the video, maybe you'll be able to make sense of it in context.

First of all, no need to be so sensitive when someone criticizes your choice.
 
Secondly, I still find the quote by itself to be silly and even a bit contemptible. 
 
Thirdly, it made far more sense when he added in connectivity. I hadn't realised that your latter two quotes came from the same video. Don't divorce it of its context next time, otherwise it sounds stupid and it's an insult to him.

"Don't divorce it of its context next time"
 
That's kind of the whole point of a quote, that it stands on its own... basically you're saying don't post quotes in the quote thread. Okay.

Destinee: 
"Oh great. Some sort of cosmic caste system. How lovely."  
  
Responding when someone criticizes your choice in such a sarcastic, nonconstructive manner is kind of typical of humanity. I'd expect you'd do the same.
 

"Seriously though... "I feel like a good person because my parents are good people." What?"
 
This is totally different. I agree that your made-up quote is stupid, but his quote is totally different. He's just marveling at the vastness and interconnectedness of the universe and instead of feeling small he relishes in the fact that he can understand some of it - that he is part of such an amazing thing - what's stupid in that.
 
"even a bit contemptible."
 
What? I'm not the one to tell you what quotes to like or not like, but I don't get your issue with this at all. Or to be honest the sudden streak of unconstructive criticism. You're the last one I would expect to do such a thing. (I guess this is kind of a backhanded compliment) 
 
 
"Feel-good quotes are okay once in a while, but I prefer substantial ones to inspirational ones"
 
 
Coming from someone who cares a lot about the feel good (i.e. religion) this is kind of odd. Plus what's wrong with feel good quotes. Isn't that kind of the point?

Hmm. I don't see the point of the bickering, and the nastiness. Take it elsewhere.

stuntdude:

Stop being a douche.

Destinee:

Apologize for insulting something that means a lot to stuntdude, whether or not you really meant it.

Quantum:

Play League with me!!! Also, religion is about more than the "feel good." I don't think you meant that in a demeaning way, but it's not a very accurate description.
