I have doubts about myself, we all do. We are told to be our true selves because people in this world won't like our true selves anyway. In a perfect world, I wouldn't have to care about what people think of me. In a perfect world, I wouldn't need to fear all the things that made me create the boundaries I have put up for myself to this day.
- Gotta get back.
Fifty years have passed, but I do not age. Time has lost its effect on me. Yet the suffering continues. Aku's grasp chokes the past, present and the future. Hope is lost. Got to get back. Back to the past. Samurai Jack.
- Taylor Swift's 'Lover'
Today, we welcome Swift's seventh blockbuster album, Lover, out on her new label, Republic, and yes, she owns the masters, and yes, it is light-years better than 2017's stormy Reputation and very arguably her best pop album to date, and yes, that's (arguably) counting 2012's Red as a pop album.
- From Bioshock
I am Andrew Ryan, and I'm here to ask you a question. Is a man not entitled to the sweat of his brow? 'No!' says the man in Washington, 'It belongs to the poor.' 'No!' says the man in the Vatican, 'It belongs to God.' 'No!' says the man in Moscow, 'It belongs to everyone.' I rejected those answers; instead, I chose something different. I chose the impossible. I chose... Rapture, a city where the artist would not fear the censor, where the scientist would not be bound by petty morality.
Me, with my strange choice of adjectives
- Greatest things.
The greatest things in life aren't things. they are people. We cherish them with all we have and that makes us care about is so much that it is really precious to you. For everyone, there is their own greatest thing. whether it be a person or a item that you love so much that you would throw your life away.
- TRAD Climbing
Traditional climbing, is a style of rock climbing in which a climber or group of climbers place all gear required to protect against falls, and remove it when a pitch is complete. When clinging to the side of a cliff, the leader must have one hand free to place the gear. After the leader runs out of rope, the belayer follows, removing all gear.

- Shipping Out: On the (nearly lethal) comforts of a luxury cruise
How long has it been since you did Absolutely Nothing? I know exactly how long it's been for me. I know how long it's been since I had every need met choicelessly from someplace outside me, without my having to ask. And that time I was floating, too, and the fluid was warm and salty, and if I was in any way conscious I'm sure I was dreadless, and was having a really good time, and would have set postcards to everyone wishing they were here.
siromaru and cranky
If two implacable foes are both fighting for what they hold most dear, what lengths will they go in their struggle to prevail? And how much further will they go if what they're both fighting for is the same thing? In a desperate conflict with a ruthless enemy...

- On grief
The pain of grief is just as much part of life as the joy of love: it is perhaps the price we pay for love, the cost of commitment. To ignore this fact, or to pretend that it is not so, is to put on emotional blinkers which leave us unprepared for the losses that will inevitably occur in our own lives and unprepared to help others cope with losses in theirs.

- The Dead girl made

This quote is gonna be a short one. If you want a long one, skip please. So if it's gonna be short, what I write must be short, right? So it's gonna end here.
- The Timekeeper
There is a clock on your wall or the dashboard of your car. You have a schedule, a calendar, a time for dinner or a movie. Yet all around you, timekeeping is ignored. Birds are not late. A dog does not check its watch. Deer do not fret over passing birthdays. Man alone measures time. Man alone chimes the hour. And, because of this, man alone suffers a paralyzing fear that no other creature endures. A fear of time running out.

This quote is gonna be long. If you want a short one, please skip this quote. So this is the most up to date Big Bang theory. It doesn't confront the laws of physics or scientific discoveries. The process of inflation is a process that can create an infinite space in a finite object. Okay, if you want to know more, read Our Mathematical Universe by Max Tegmark or any other book of that kind.
- The Human Stain
But the danger with hatred is, once you start in on it, you get a hundred times more than you bargained for. Once you start, you can't stop. I don't know anything harder to control than hating. Easier to kick drinking than to master hate. And that is saying something.
- American Pastoral
That can happen when people die, the argument with them drops away and people so flawed while they were drawing breath that at times they were all but unbearable now assert themselves in the most appealing way - and what was least to your liking the day before yesterday becomes in the limousine behind the hearse a cause not only for sympathetic amusement but for admiration.
- Sabbath's Theatre
As for himself, however hateful life was, it was hateful in a home and not in the gutter. Many Americans hated their homes. The number of homeless in America couldn't touch the number of Americans who had homes and families and hated the whole thing.
Still, American television is full of smiles and more and more perfect-looking teeth. Do these people want us to trust them? No. Do they want us to think they're good people? No again. The truth is they don't want anything from us. They just want to show us their teeth, their smiles, and admiration is all they want in return. Admiration. They want us to look at them, that's all.
