You build up all these defenses, you build up a whole suit of armor, so that nothing can hurt you, then one stupid person, no different from any other stupid person, wanders into your stupid life...You give them a piece of you. They didn't ask for it. They did something dumb one day, like kiss you or smile at you, and then your life isn't your own anymore. Love takes hostages.

"Truthiness" is the featured article of the day on Wikipedia, and I finally took the time to find out what Colbert was using "truthiness" to mean. I'd heard about the word itself, but not the idea behind it. Anyway, here's a quote from the article that I thought was really relevant to some of the discussions here--particularly the God thread--and also to some things that've been twirling around in my head. Said by Colbert in normal mode:
"Truthiness is tearing apart our country. [...] It used to be, everyone was entitled to their own opinion, but not their own facts. But that's not the case anymore. Facts matter not at all. Perception is everything. It's certainty. [...] I really feel a dichotomy in the American populace. What is important? What you want to be true, or what is true?"
Definitely something for the ol' brain files. Something to think on.
Alright this is my collection of random, outragous, funny and useful quotes. They come from varity of places, from chat rooms, smallville and youtube comments to imdb.com. There's quite a few from Hilton, a cool guy from Brazil. Enjoy

Is it okay to post a quote that I don't know who it's from?
My dad had it hanging on the wall at our house:
"My 'get up and go' got up and went" *lol*
I have another question:
Can we put our own thoughts in here? I mean, if we've made up something that might sound like a 'quotable quote' - can we post it here, or should it be posted in the "creative thread"? (Just making sure I'm putting stuff where I should on here)
