My favorite Demotivators

Here are the demotivators that best apply to me.

Compromise: Let's agree to respect each others views, no matter how wrong yours may be.

Challenges: I expected times like this - but I never thought they'd be so bad, so long, and so frequent.

Destiny: You were meant for me. Perhaps as a punishment.

Goals: It's best to avoid standing directly between a competitive jerk and his goals.

Government: If you think the problems we create are bad, just wait until you see our solutions.

Insanity: It's difficult to comprehend how insane some people can be. Especially when you're insane.

Power: Power corrupts. Absolute power corrupts absolutely. But it rocks absolutely, too.

Pretension: The downside of being better than everyone else is that people tend to assume you're pretentious.

Priorities: Hundreds of years from now, it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in, or the kind of car I drove... But the world may be different because I did something so bafflingly crazy that my ruins become a tourist attraction.

Propaganda: What lies behind us and lies before us are small matters compared to what lies right to our faces.

Sanity: Minds are like parachutes. Just because you've lost yours doesn't mean you can borrow mine.

Tradition: Just because you've always done it that way doesn't mean it's not incredibly stupid.

Wishes: When you wish upon a falling star, your dreams can come true. Unless it's really a meteorite hurtling to the Earth which will destroy all life. Then you're pretty much hosed no matter what you wish for. Unless it's death by meteor.

And a few more...

“Adversity - That which does not kill me postpones the inevitable.”

“Cluelessness - There are no stupid questions, but there are a LOT of inquisitive idiots.”

“Sacrifice - Your role may be thankless, but if you're willing to give it your all, you just might bring success to those who outlast you.”

“Apathy - If we don't take care of the customer, maybe they'll stop bugging us.”

“Agony - Not all pain is gain.”

“Elitism - It's lonely at the top. But it's comforting to look down upon everyone at the bottom.”

“Dysfunction - The only consistent feature of all of your dissatisfying relationships is you.”

“Defeat - For every winner there are dozens of losers. Odds are you're one of them.”

“Fear - Until you have the courage to lose sight of the shore, you will not know the terror of being forever lost at sea.”

“Stupidity - Quitters never win, winners never quit, but those who never win AND never quit are idiots.”

“Pretension - The downside of being better than everyone else is that people tend to assume you're pretentious.” Oh you already said that one.
