MontyPython

The Top Ten

1 "I'd rather be hated for who I am than loved for who I'm not."

Nope, those are not his words. Andre Gide, a French, Nobel Prize winning author, said this.

Exactly. - RiverClanRocks

2 "Nobody dies a virgin, life f**ks us all."

I loved it - so true... - Metal_Treasure

Very true - Martinglez

3 "Wanting to be someone else is a waste of who you are."
4 "Friends are just known enemies."

Dark and psychotic cynicism.

6 "There's good in all of us and I think I just love people too much, so much that it makes me feel so f**king sad."
7 "We have no right to express an opinion until we know answers."

Excellent advice for many posters on this site.

8 "The duty of youth is to challenge corruption."

No. The "duty of youth" is to know what the hell they're talking about before challenging anything. See previous item.

9 "Thank you for the tragedy. I need it for the art."
10 (After someone screams "FREE BIRD!" at a concert when Nirvana is performing live) "I knew someone was gonna say that."

How dumb can they be? That's a completely different song by a completely different band. - RiverClanRocks

It's a somewhat common thing that people often yell out at concerts; kind of like "Justin Bieber" being added to many top tens lists where he probably really doesn't belong - Billyv

The Contenders
