This above all, - to thine ownself be true;
And it must follow, as the night the day,
Thou canst not then be false to any man.

William Shakespeare
Hamlet Act 1 Sc 111

"Vi veri veniversum vivus vici" (By the power of truth, I, while living, have conquered the universe.)

To me, it signifies the power of reason. Through science, we learn to manipulate the world around us to our advantage, and thus, conquer the universe.

Hi,
I always remember the quote..

"If your always looking in the rear view mirror you will never see what is in front of you."

It makes me think of actions and consequences also, if your always looking back you miss the present, but what if your not paying attention, you crash. It just means alot to me.

thanks :)

This is a favourite of mine:

"The greatest fight is the fight with oneself"


And here's another:

"Do not regret being ignored; regret being ignorant"

I don't know what you mean by informal quote kakykoo :?
