Trying to not hurt others is something you can't do. People are creatures who hurt others just by existing even if they're not aware of it. Whether you're living or dying, you'll always be hurting someone. Once you're involved, you'll hurt someone, and even by not being involved, you might be hurting someone else as well...
- Hyouka - high school
People remember their high school days as the high point of their lives. People say these things because everyone holds fond memories of their time in high school; however, I doubt that every high school student would want to remember their school life that way. For example, if neither studying, nor sports, nor socializing are of interest to someone, what then? What if there are students who prefer to keep a low profile? Though I guess that would be a pretty lonely way to live.
- Mary Love
I love her, til she join with the air up above her Love so strong it can't be wrong for her to share with another Long as she touch my lips and my fingers, fuck it, we swingers Cause it's Jane that keeps me sane For what the world gonna bring us Can make a blind man see and forget his doctor's appointment For her sheer enjoyment I'll even risk unemployment.
- Sam Vines; Men at Arms
Take boots, for example. He earned thirty-eight dollars a month plus allowances. A really good pair of leather boots cost fifty dollars. But an affordable pair of boots, which were sort of OK for a season or two and then leaked like hell when the cardboard gave out, cost about ten dollars. Those were the kind of boots Vimes always bought, and wore until the soles were so thin that he could tell where he was in Ankh-Morpork on a foggy night by the feel of the cobbles.

Science does not retain the sovereignty over metaphysical pronouncements. It cannot take the right to extrapolate from it's empirical methods. And science does not have the right to give me my reason for being in my definition of existence. But, I'm going to take Sciences' view because I want this world not to have meaning - because it frees me to my own erotic and political values.
- I do
When you asked me to marry you, all I could do was cry and shake my head yes. As of now if you asked me again I know for a fact I would do the same thing again. The draws near when I will say I do and become yours forever. When I say those two words not only do I give you my heart, I give you all of my love and everything that I am and all that I can be and will be. So I do. I do. I do take you as my husband and I do take you as my partner and best friend. And I do for eternity.
I'm so proud of you! You're here for a reason. Trying to improve yourself and do better! It makes me so happy to think of people thriving. Keep up the good work.
We must not see any person as an abstraction. Instead, we must see in every person a universe with its own secrets, with its own treasures, with its own sources of anguish, and with some measure of triumph.
- Evading Reality
The original version from a 1961 symposium read: Man is free to choose not to be conscious, but not free to escape the penalty of unconsciousness: destruction. Over the years this has been tightened up to read: We can evade reality, but we cannot evade the consequences of evading reality.
- USH - 1920 and the Great Depression Part One
The US enters WW1 because of German agression and economics. The US gov sold Liberty bonds, which is when they invest in another government. The US sets up a commmitee of public information, where they implemented propaganda to the public. This commitee sent war news to the newspapers which announced US victories and depicted german atrocities. Not all of these news were necessarily true. As a result, average German citizens were attacked and vandalized.

- Npc goes Mad
Ok, I've just about had my FILL of riddle asking, quest assigning, insult throwing, pun hurling, hostage taking, iron mongering, smart-arsed fools, freaks, and felons that continually test my will, mettle, strength, intelligence, and most of all, patience! If you've got a straight answer ANYWHERE in that bent little head of yours, I want to hear it and pretty damn quick.
- The stars and the signs.
Thirty degrees latitude... longitude varying greatly... moons in conjunction with... pardon my lack of focus, but I've been studying the skies for some time now. Now I've a positively wicked kink in my neck, and cannot seem to focus on anything closer than the horizon. Such are the pains of astrology, I suppose.

- Hate for Hate
Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that.

- The Judging Eye
A beggar's mistake harms no one but the beggar. A king's mistake, however, harms everyone but the king. Too often, the measure of power lies not in the number who obey your will, but in the number who suffer your stupidity.
Pure entertainment is not an egotistical lady singing boring songs onstage for two hours and people in tuxes clapping whether they like it or not. It's the real performers on the street who can hold people's attention and keep them from walking away.
- The Art of War
If your enemy is secure at all points, be prepared for him. If he is in superior strength, evade him. If your opponent is temperamental, seek to irritate him. Pretend to be weak, that he may grow arrogant. If he is taking his ease, give him no rest. If his forces are united, separate them. If sovereign and subject are in accord, put division between them. Attack him where he is unprepared, appear where you are not expected.
I hate socializing, I hate talking to people, I honestly hate people. People ask why, and the answer probably is that I hate myself. I wish I could give some sort of advice to anyone else dealing with this as well, however I cannot give advice that I cannot follow.
