- Fraziers Poem
Ali comes out to meet Frazier, but Frazier starts to retreat, If Joe goes back an inch farther. He'll wind up in a ringside seat. Ali swings with his left, Ali swings with his right, Just look at the kid carry the fight. Frazier keeps backing but there's not enough room, It's only a matter of time Before Ali lowers the boom. Ali swings with his right. What a beautiful swing, but the punch lifts Frazier clean out of the ring. Frazier's still rising and the referee wears a frown.
- You Complete Me
If this is where it has to happen, then this is where it has to happen. I'm not letting you get rid of me. How about that? This used to be my specialty. You know, I was good in a living room. They'd send me in there, and I'd do it alone. And now I just... But tonight, our little project, our company had a very big night - a very, very big night. But it wasn't complete, wasn't nearly close to being in the same vicinity as complete, because I couldn't share it with you.
- Best inhumane
Sometimes the best option is the most inhumane. Imagine one rail road and can switch one side to another and on one side is a group tied down and on the other is your most loved one. Which one is the best the option?
The world was fair, the mountains tall, In Elder Days before the fall Of mighty kings in Nargothrond And Gondolin, who now beyond The Western Seas have passed away: The world was fair in Durin's Day.
Edgar Allan Poe
Come! let the burial rite be read-the funeral song be sung!-An anthem for the queenliest dead that ever died so young-A dirge for her the doubly dead in that she died so young.
Honor is what I have sought as long as I can remember. To honor the earth, and my ancestors. To remember the old ways, and acknowledge any wrongdoing of my own. To defend the defenseless, to stand beside those who would fight with me, to stand strong against those who would strive against me. To place my family above all others. For what is honor, if not the practice of doing good as you walk your path?
- The Truth
Many people, especially ignorant people, want to punish you for speaking the truth, for being correct, for being you. Never apologize for being correct, or for being years ahead of your time. If you're right and you know it, speak your mind.
How ironic, then, and how poetic, that humankind may have created the Creator out of want for one. Man creates God, who then creates man. Is that not the perfect circle of life? But then, if that turns out to be the case, who is created in whose image?

- A villain who unintentionally always does helpful things
Actually, because you poisoned the water supply, we discovered that the city's pipe infrastructure is really severely outdated. So thank you for bringing our attention to that, millions of people could've gotten really sick over the next few years. Secondly, because you snuck past the security system so easily, we found out that funds specifically for that security system were being embezzled by government officials, so we've busted a major fraud ring.
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 sent 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 to 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.
