    Inspired by a quote from the film "The Dark Knight" where during the opening scene with The Joker and the bank robbers rob a bank and seemingly take each other out with a gunshot.


    The bank manager who is sprawled out on the floor askes The Joker what he believes in which he replies back believing that whatever doesn't kill you simply makes you stranger.


    This thread/topic is about believing in something based on you alone and stands out from other members who i am sure have a different belief.


    It can be based on

    # A religion

    # A cult

    # A region

    # Music

    # Public figure

    # Politician

    Etc


    For me I personally believe in myself and strive to do the best that i can in any given situation or moment and not let anyone tell me different or stop me from pursing what i want to pursue.




    Feel free to post something that you believe in from a personal standpoint.



    Hopefully people will understand the point of this thread and that it isn't meant for trolling lol

    I've never understood the "What ever doesn't kill you makes you stronger" philosophy.
    Maybe I'm very impressionable but my bad experiences have not made me stronger (not that I'm neurotic or anything).

    I want to do a T-Shirt that reads

    WHAT-EVER DOESN'T KILL
    YOU MAKES YOU
    WISH IT HAD

    Too cynical?

    How about

    PAIN IS WEAKNESS
    LEAVING THE BODY
    CRIPPLED ?

    That said, I was always fascinated with the line from a VOYAGER episode where a sage said

    "When everything is known, they'll be nothing left to believe in."

    It took me a minute to figure that one out.

    That's a interesting line from that episode.

    I think the saying should be

    WHAT DOESN'T KILL YOU
    GIVES YOU THE OPPORTUNITY TO GROW
