Aries is a fire sign, known for being aggressive, brash and confident. Mars ruled, Aries are go-getters, natural warriors, yang. They are concerned with the self – “me” as opposed to “we”.
I don’t think it’s the nature of any man to be monogamous. Men are propelled by genetically ordained impulses over which they have no control to distribute their seed.
You can’t just sit there and wait for people to give you that golden dream. You’ve got to get out there and make it happen for yourself.
If boyhood and youth are but vanity, must it not be our ambition to become men?
Vincent Van Gogh
I’m not good at future planning. I don’t plan at all. I don’t know what I’m doing tomorrow. I don’t have a day planner and I don’t have a diary. I completely live in the now, not in the past, not in the future.
Anyone who can add to this, please do!
I am just too much.
I love playing bitches. There’s a lot of bitch in every woman – a lot in every man.
I need sex for a clear complexion, but I’d rather do it for love.
Love is a fire. But whether it is going to warm your hearth or burn down your house, you can never tell.
I have accepted fear as a part of life – specifically the fear of change… I have gone ahead despite the pounding in the heart that says: turn back.
The trouble is, if you don’t risk anything, you risk even more.
You take your life in your own hands, and what happens? A terrible thing: no one to blame.
Sometimes it’s worse to win a fight than to lose.
I can’t stand to sing the same song the same way two nights in succession, let alone two years or ten years. If you can, then it ain’t music, it’s close-order drill or exercise or yodeling or something, not music.
Though men may be deep, mentally they are slow.
All cruel people describe themselves as paragons of frankness.
If the writing is honest it cannot be separated from the man who wrote it.
Most of the confidence which I appear to feel, especially when influenced by noon wine, is only a pretense.
We are all sentenced to solitary confinement inside our own skins, for life.
Am I not sensitive, clever, well-mannered, considerate, passionate, charming, as kind as I’m handsome and heir to a throne?
Perpetual anticipation is good for the soul but it’s bad for the heart.
The interesting thing is how one guy, through living out his own fantasies, is living out the fantasies of so many other people.
The major civilizing force in the world is not religion, it is sex.
March 21, 1763 Jean Paul Richter:
Only actions give life strength; only moderation gives it charm.
March 22, 1672 Sir Richard Steele:
The insupportable labor of doing nothing.
March 23, 1900 Erich Fromm:
Man’s main task in life is to give birth to himself, to become what he potentially is. The most important product of his effort is his own personality.
March 24, 1903 Malcolm Muggeridge:
Only dead fish swim with the stream.
March 25, 1881 Mary Webb:
If you stop to be kind, you must swerve often from your path.
March 26, 1874 Robert Frost:
By working faithfully eight hours a day you may eventually get to be boss and work twelve hours a day.
March 27, 1950 Ursula Rainio, Miss Finland 1970
I am determined and positive. I have put my trust on success. I have not waited for it, I have acted… You must give your all in order to get all.
March 28, 1944 Alan Oken, astrologer:
Aries people are well liked because they stimulate others to action and sow the seeds which other people may successfully cultivate.
March 29, 1976 Jennifer Capriati:
What I want out of tennis is not necessarily just winning. I just want to play well and have fun playing well.
March 30, 1853 Vincent Van Gogh:
One may have a blazing hearth in one’s soul and yet no one ever come to sit by it. Passersby see only a wisp of smoke from the chimney and continue on the way.
March 31, 1914 Octavio Paz:
Love is to battle, to open doors. The world changes if two can look at each other and see.
April 1, 1753 Joseph Marie De Maistre:
The most wonderful aspect of the universal scheme of things is the action of free beings under divine guidance.
April 2, 1905 Kurt Herbert Adler:
Tradition is what you resort to when you don’t have the time or the money to do it right.
April 3, 1783 Washington Irving:
Great minds have purposes, little minds have wishes.
April 4, 1892 Edith SÆ’
hehe. I love your blog so much. I enjoyed all of your sign quotes. Wow. Here’s an Aries quote (quoting myself) while I was talking with a friend online just now:
“One thing I absolutely love more than orgasming is compliments..I do admit that. I guess who doesn’t? But I love knowing things about myself, even negative things. “Boy you’re annoying!” is kinda interesting to me”
I once proclaimed, “I wouldn’t want to be any other sign than an Aries. It’s the best one.”
My sister replied, “That’s such an Aries thing to say.”
(she’s an Aries, too)
“Possibly it wasn’t too important for the world to know that we couldn’t be bought, but I did want Al Capone and every gangster in the city to realize that there were still a few law enforcement agents who couldn’t be swerved from their duty.” ~Eliot Ness
“Unquestionably, it was going to be highly dangerous. Yet I felt it was quite natural to jump at the task. After all, if you don’t like action and excitement, you don’t go into police work. And, what the hell, I figured, nobody lives forever!” ~Eliot Ness, b. April 19, 1903
“Anyone can be a millionaire, but to become a billionaire you need an astrologer.” -John Pierpont Morgan
“Well, I don’t know as I want a lawyer to tell me what I cannot do. I hire him to tell how to do what I want to do.” – John Pierpont Morgan, financier, b. April 17, 1837
Here’s my husband’s favorite quote from me, regarding modern art:
“I’m so tired of ‘the shock of the new.’ When are we going to have something new?”
The ultimate in Aries impatience and churlishness.
“Let’s get movin’, we’re burnin’ daylight!”
my triple Aries S/O . . . . “deep sigh”, his Libra, me 🙂
I like these two:
Life Shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage.
~ Anais Nin
It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are.
~ e.e. cummings
I think women should have sex with as many men as possible, and just simply let the best sperm win. It makes purrfect sense. I’m joking, but the point remains…
Maya Angelou (April 4, 1928):
“Bitterness is like cancer. It eats upon the host. But anger is like fire. It burns it all clean.”
“Courage is the most important of all the virtues, because without courage you can’t practice any other virtue consistently. You can practice any virtue erratically, but nothing consistently without courage.”
“History, despite its wrenching pain, cannot be unlived, but if faced with courage, need not be lived again.”
“How important it is for us to recognize and celebrate our heroes and she-roes!”
“I believe that every person is born with talent.”
“I love to see a young girl go out and grab the world by the lapels. Life’s a bitch. You’ve got to go out and kick ass.”
“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
“If we lose love and self respect for each other, this is how we finally die.”
“Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry, but by demonstrating that all peoples cry, laugh, eat, worry, and die, it can introduce the idea that if we try and understand each other, we may even become friends.”
There are a lot more quotes from Maya, at this website:
And then there’s her poetry, like “Phenomenal Woman”:
and “Still I Rise”:
Anais Nin was a Piscean 😉
My Arian best friend had the audacity to call a nightclub to see what time “free cover” ended (that’s not the audacious part), when she hung up she got a “oh yeah I forgot” look on her face and called right back to say “We’re on our way.”
As if they were waiting for the famous people to arrive.
shell – that is hysterical! 🙂
I believe I have lived in the past,… and now the present, while I see no good, looking into the future.
Bob Miller—vanrijngo 3/24/44
I completely relate to Diana Ross’ quote. I’ve never believed in sitting, waiting, dreaming. I always go out of my way to go get that dream 🙂 Always have and always will 🙂
This post makes me incredibly happy 😀
happy birthday rams! 🙂
i was helping my mom at work last week and this middle aged aries woman waltzed in with her dog, and she exclaimed.. “Guess what?! It’s my birthday on sunday, …do I get anything special?” She lights up a room in typical aries fashion… unabashedly bold, child-like, energetic and honest.. x)
I don’t know who originally said it but as an Aries one of my major life philosophies has been, Where there’s a Will there’s a Way. I just found out that a Scorpio acquaintance also shares that life philosophy – it must be a Mars thing.
I don’t know if this kid was an Aries or not, but I would bet my money on it. I was in line in an ice cream shop. The door busts open and in comes this little kid with a huge smile on his face “Hi everybody! I’m Aaron!” He marched right up the the counter and knew exactly what he wanted. “Give me a double chocolate and strawberry!” The mother had to tap him gently on the shoulder and say “Aaron honey, it’s not your turn yet!”. He looked around and noticed other people in line. “Oh ok! But that’s what I want when I get there!”…
I wonder if this kid is an Aries… Or Sadge? He definitely has audacity (and poise) on steroids and no fear.
“My passions were all gathered together like fingers that made a fist. Drive is considered aggression today; I knew it then as purpose.”
