"The richest one percent of this country owns half our country's wealth, five trillion dollars. One third of that comes from hard work, two thirds comes from inheritance, interest on interest accumulating to widows and idiot sons – and what I do, stock and real estate speculation. It's bullshit. You got ninety percent of the American public out there with little or no net worth. I create nothing. I own. We make the rules, pal. The news, war, peace, famine, upheaval, the price per paper clip. We pick that rabbit out of the hat while everybody sits out there wondering how the hell we did it. Now, you're not naive enough to think we're living in a democracy, are you, buddy? It's the free market. And you're a part of it. You've got that killer instinct. Stick around, pal, I've still got a lot to teach you."

"Many Buddhists understand the round of birth-and-death quite literally as a process of reincarnation, wherein the karma which shapes the individual does so again and again in life after life until, through insight and awakening, it is laid to rest.

"Many Buddhists understand the round of birth-and-death quite literally as a process of reincarnation, wherein the karma which shapes the individual does so again and again in life after life until, through insight and awakening, it is laid to rest. But in Zen, and in other schools of the Mahayana, it is often taken in a more figurative way, as that the process of rebirth is from moment to moment, so that one is being reborn so long as one identifies himself with a continuing ego which reincarnates itself afresh at each moment of time."

it just sucked up the whole opinionated din
and there were no people on the payroll
and there were no monkeys on our backs

"Ordinary people seem not to realize that those who really apply themselves in the right way to philosophy are directly and of their own accord preparing themselves for dying and death. If this is true, and they have actually been looking forward to death all their lives, it would of course be absurd to be troubled when the thing comes for which they have so long been preparing and looking forward."

"Anyone who manages to experience the history of humanity as a whole as his own history will feel in an enormously generalized way all the grief of an invalid who thinks of health, of an old man who thinks of the dream of his youth, of a lover deprived of his beloved, of the martyr whose ideal is perishing, of the hero on the evening after a battle that has decided nothing but brought him wounds and the loss of his friend. But if one endured, if one could endure this immense sum of grief of all kinds while yet being the hero who, as the second day of battle breaks, welcomes the dawn and his fortune, being a person whose horizon encompasses thousands of years, past and future, being the heir of all the nobility of all past spirit - an heir with a sense of obligation, the most aristocratic of old nobles and at the same time the first of a new nobility - the like of which no age has yet seen or dreamed of; if one could burden one’s soul with all of this - the oldest, the newest, losses, hopes, conquests, and the victories of humanity; if one could finally contain all this in one soul and crowd it into a single feeling - this would surely have to result in a happiness that humanity has not known so far: the happiness of a god full of power and love, full of tears and laughter, a happiness that, like the sun in the evening, continually bestows its inexhaustible riches, pouring them into the sea, feeling richest, as the sun does, only when even the poorest fishermen is still rowing with golden oars! This godlike feeling would then be called - humaneness."

"I'm not going to say it until a wider range of people see it. It's a universal thought; it's not a black or white thing, or a green and gold thing…There are a few chosen people that are here to help to get these people out of this certain sleepiness that they're in…All they're doing is making themselves weaker and weaker until their negatives come and just take them away, and that's what's gonna happen, then you're going to have no world to live on. The establishment's going to crumble away…The solar system is going through a change soon and it's going to affect the Earth itself. This room is just a crumb from the crust of the pie, and like there's no moving from any one land to another to save yourself in that respect… There's a physical change coming soon, it's neither bad or good - it's just true. The world's gonna go like topsy-turvy soon, because humans forget that they're part of earth-matter too, and so they have bad vibrations floatin' around now, so there's gonna be a big physical change…since the people are part of Earth, they're going to feel it too. In many ways they're a lot of the reason for causing it…The axis of the Earth turns around and changes the face of the world and completely different civilizations come about, or another age comes about. In other words, it changes the face of the Earth and it only takes about a quarter of a day…The axis of the Earth, if it changes, it changes the whole face of the Earth, like every few thousand years, so that new civilizations come every time it changes…The solar system is going through a change soon and it's going to affect the Earth in about thirty years. So I think a person should try to get his own thing, he should get a certain faith with one link. There's no whole lot of religions, just one link, because there's only a few chosen people that supposedly are to get this across."
