Do you feel the power of the dark side?

―Darth Bane

All must be brought down for something new to be created. Together or alone, we will slip onto worlds and strike from the shadows. We will be invisible. We will be patient. All that exists will be torn apart from within. Darth Krayt’s vision of the galaxy remade will be realized. He lives in us. The Sith will prevail.” ―Darth Nihl

Quotes from Our Galaxy

“Only this have I learned so far, that man needs what is most evil in him for what is best in him – that whatever is most evil is his best power and the hardest stone for the highest creator; and that man must become better and more evil.” ―Friedrich Nietzsche, Thus Spake Zarathustra

“What is good? All that heightens the feeling of power, the will to power, power itself in man. What is bad? All that proceeds from weakness. What is happiness? The feeling that power increases – that a resistance is overcome.” ―Friedrich Nietzsche, The Antichrist

“I teach you the Superman. Man is something that should be overcome.” ―Friedrich Nietzsche, Thus Spake Zarathustra

“The greatest happiness is to scatter your enemy, to drive him before you, to see his cities reduced to ashes, to see those who love him shrouded in tears, and to gather into your bosom his wives and daughters.”

“With Heaven’s aid I have conquered for you a huge empire. But my life was too short to achieve the conquest of the world. That task is left for you.”

–Genghis Khan

“The intangible represents the real power of the universe. It is the seed of the tangible.”

“There are no limits. There are plateaus, but you must not stay there, you must go beyond them. If it kills you, it kills you. A man must constantly exceed his level.”

“Use only that which works, and take it from any place you can find it.”

“As you think, so shall you become.”

―Bruce Lee

“The nature scientists uncover has crafted our viler impulses into us: in fact, these impulses are a part of the process she uses to create. Lucifer is the dark side of cosmic fecundity, the cutting blade of the sculptor’s knife. Nature does not abhor evil; she embraces it. With it she moved the human world to greater heights of organization, intricacy, and power.” ―Howard Bloom, The Lucifer Principle

“That man never really dies who knows how to assume sufficient empire over others to be able to trace lasting marks of his energy and power over the minds of those who, under his influence, bend their steps toward the highest.”

“Why fear to reanimate ALL the possibilities that lie dormant in our natures? Is it not desirable to cultivate all plants indiscriminately? There are those that are poisonous, true, yet even these are indispensable in the practice of medicine. Large doses of certain drugs cause death; but, administered wisely with the hand of a skilful physician, they bring relief and very often a complete cure. The same may be said of many forces that are evil only because they are not disciplined.” ―Yoritomo-Tashi

“Thought is energy. Active thought is active energy; concentrated thought is a concentrated energy. Thought concentrated on a definite purpose becomes power. This is the power which is being used by those who do not believe in the virtue of poverty, or the beauty of self-denial. They perceive that this is the talk of weaklings.

The ability to receive and manifest this power depends upon the ability to recognize the Infinite Energy ever dwelling in man, constantly creating and recreating his body and mind, and ready at any moment to manifest through him in any needful manner. In exact proportion to the recognition of this truth will be the manifestation in the outer life of the individual.” ―Charles Haanel, The Master Key System

“Man is a transitional being. He is not final. The step from man to superman is the next approaching achievement in the earth’s evolution. It is inevitable because it is at once the intention of the inner spirit and the logic of nature’s process.” ―Sri Aurobindo

“The spirit of a warrior is not geared to indulging and complaining, nor is it geared to winning or losing. The spirit of a warrior is geared only to struggle, and every struggle is a warrior’s last battle on earth. Thus the outcome matters very little to him. In his last battle on earth a warrior lets his spirit flow free and clear. And as he wages his battle, knowing that his intent is impeccable, a warrior laughs and laughs.” –Carlos Castaneda, A Separate Reality

“Real understanding in spiritual matters is the result of much bitter fighting, of suffering, spiritual agony and soul passion. Life itself would have no meaning if there was no fighting on all planes, if all was smooth and monotonous. Everything fights in nature. Every plant fights to get more sunshine, every animal fights for food; the angels themselves fight. Constant struggle on all planes to which it has access is the birthright of the creature. Woe to him who wants to put himself on a level with the Creator and escape fighting!” ―Theodore Illion, Darkness Over Tibet

“This then is the essence of all paths of warrior wisdom, regardless of the label with which the practitioners choose to brand their individual arts. Through the choice to confront the path of challenge, to continuously face risks, to explore the very edge of defeat to better know triumph, the warrior discovers the keys to the universal power that seems to charge both the brightness and the darkness in the same manner. As he further discovers his place in the thread of the scheme of universal totality, the enlightened warrior eventually attains the freedom that affords him the insight to see that, ultimately, there is no separation whatsoever between what the fearful differentiate as the realms of light and dark, good and evil. In truth, this universal oneness is the key to the puzzle that mankind has sought to solve since the very beginnings of thought.” ―Stephen K. Hayes, The Mystic Arts of the Ninja
