"Smart people learn from their mistakes. But the really sharp ones learn from the mistakes of others. "

"Most whores are just honest women. Most women are just dishonest whores. By the way, that is just as much an indictment of men as it is women. Men get what they pay for, and we are notoriously poor shoppers."
"Once upon a time, I would court a girl. I would wine and dine. We would talk for hours on the phone getting to know each other. I always believed it was the thoughtful little things that mattered most. Now: I get done with her by 11:00pm so she can drive herself home."
- Johnny Wayne
"What a great advantage a man can have over women, if he only knew what cold and calculating thoughts are going through her mind.... while her eyes are brimming with tears."
- Esther Vilar

"Why does a man wear a wedding ring?
MAN: It’s a symbol of my commitment to her.
Why does a woman wear a wedding ring?
WOMAN: It’s a symbol of his commitment to me."
"If you are a "potential rapist" for buying a woman a drink, then she's already a "potential thief and murderer" of your freedom and well-being."
"When men greet each other, they insult each other but they don't really mean it. When woman greet each other, they compliment each other but they don't really mean it."
"Why do women not make use of their intellectual potential? For the simple reason that they do not need to. It is not essential for their survival. Theoretically it is possible for a beautiful woman to have less intelligence than a chimpanzee and still be considered an acceptable member of society."
- Esther Vilar
"I’ve come to realiZe that the red pill goes deeper than even that. It’s questioning the prevailing attitudes, your own behavior, thoughts and beliefs even with a benign, bemused skepticism. Using your imagination to better your position according to your will in the face of “blue pillers” who view imagination and hypotheticals as mere toys to be played with while drinking themselves into a spiritual coma. “Show me a mans friends and I’ll show you his future” it has been said. But cream only rises to the top because of its inherent difference to the substances surrounding it. The higher a pyramid, the larger the difference between the top and bottom. Go your own way. In all the ways you can conceive of, with all your heart and soul. And never look back."
"If you end up with a boring, miserable life because you listened to your mom, your dad, your teacher, your priest, or some guy on television telling you how to do your shit, then you deserve it."
- Frank Zappa
