Not true. Various monkeys, sharks, and fish also prey on their own species.

[Pending] Anamanaguchi - (T-T)b
Your natural state is enlightening. Everything else you've ever been told about yourself is a lie. We are trying to wake ourselves up, because we come from source energy and we are ALL one. We have to realize that our brothers and sisters that we are seeing in the dream, are mere reflections of our inner self. Yin and yang, love and hate. People that we dislike, are mere reflections of our own character defects. People that we like and love are true successful manifestations of our deepest most.

[Pending] George Orwell - Duckspeak
There is a word in Newspeak,' said Syme, 'I don't know whether you know it: duckspeak, to quack like a duck. It is one of those interesting words that have two contradictory meanings. Applied to an opponent, it is abuse, applied to someone you agree with, it is praise.

Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann - Kamina's penultimate parting words
Listen, Simon. Never forget. Just believe in yourself. Not in the Simon that I believe in; not in the Kamina that you believe in. Have faith in the Simon who believes in you.

Stephen Sondheim - Passion
No one has ever loved me as deeply as you. No one has truly shown me what love could be like until now: Not pretty or safe or easy, but more than I ever knew. Love within reason, that isn't love. And I've learned that from you...

Lin-Manuel Miranda - Schuyler Sisters
There's nothing rich folks love more, than going downtown and sitting down with the poor! They pull up in their carriages and gawk at the students in the common just to watch them talk! Take Phillip Schuyler, the man is loaded! Uh-oh, but little does he know that his daughters, Peggy, Angelica, Eliza, sneak into the city just to watch all the guys at Work, Work!

TheGabstr - The Fault In Our Stars
There are infinite numbers between 0 and 1. There's .1 and .12 and .112 and an infinite collection of others. Of course, there is a bigger infinite set of numbers between 0 and 2, or between 0 and a million. Some infinities are bigger than other infinities. A writer we used to like taught us that. There are days, many of them, when I resent the size of my unbounded set.

You fall, you rise, you make mistakes, you live, you learn. You're human, not perfect. You've been hurt, but you're alive. Think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive - to breathe, to think, to enjoy, and to chase the things you love. Sometimes there is sadness in our journey, but there is also lots of beauty. We must keep putting one foot in front of the other even when we hurt, for we will never know what is waiting for us just around the bend.

Chuck Palahniuk - Tyler Durden Fight Club Speech
God damn it, an entire generation pumping gas, waiting tables, slaves with white collars, advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we don't need. We're the middle children of the history man, no purpose or place, we have no Great war, no Great depression, our great war is a spiritual war, our great depression is our lives.

David Bowie - Eight Line Poem
The tactful cactus by your window surveys the prairie of your room. The mobile spins to its collision, Clara puts her head between her paws. They've opened shops down the West side - will all the cacti find a home? But the key to the city is in the suns that pins the branches to the sky.

dylantypes - Keep trying!
Congratulate yourself for being here and trying to improve your skills but don't forget why you're here. Whether it's to work on a book, type your school or college assignments faster or just chat with friends online make that your priority. And don't be too hard on yourself!

Anon. - Why do people still use umbrellas in modern society?
The question is a deceptively simple one, for reasons upon which I will elaborate. Firstly, people use umbrellas for the purposes of remaining dry, or not wet, specifically when their surrounding area is being rained on - pelted with wetness, as it were. But whence this desire for retaining dryness when one's environment is wet? Whence this human urge to ostracize oneself from the natural cycle - or rather, to ostracize nature from one's own life? Is the clue not in the question?

Walter Benjamin - Information
The value of information does not survive the moment in which it was new. It lives only at that moment; it has to surrender to it completely and explain itself to it without losing any time. A story is different. It does not expend itself. It preserves and concentrates its strength and is capable of releasing it even after a long time.

Stephen Vincent Benet - American Names
I have fallen in love with American names, the sharp names that never get fat. The snakeskin-titles of mining-claims, the plumed war-bonnet of Medicine Hat . Tucson and Deadwood and Lost Mule Flat.

William James - Memories and Studies
Man, biologically considered... is the most formidable of all the beasts of prey and, indeed, the only one that preys systematically on its own species.

MacKinlay Cantor - Lincoln at Gettysburg
I was a dog at Gettysburg. I trotted near the train and nosed among the officers who kicked me to my pain. A man came by... I could not see. I howled. The light was dim, but when I brushed against his legs, I liked the smell of him.

Cormac McCarthy - The Road
Just remember that the things you put into your head are there forever, he said. You might want to think about that. You forget some things, dont you? Yes. You forget what you want to remember and you remember what you want to forget.

Steven Spielberg
The new generation of film-makers, I call the micro-chip generation. They've forgotten their literary roots. Our generation almost forgot our literary roots. But we were able to re-love the old movies, and in analyzing the old movies you find that it was much more story and writing than technique and directorial influence. It was much more the ideas that films were made up of that made them interesting to us. And then everything on top of that was icing on the cake, because John Houston directed.

Boarder, M. et al. - Pharmacology for Pharmacy and the Health Sciences
The origin of the opioid analgesic drug is naturally occurring opium collected from poppies. Morphine is the major active ingredient of opium. Despite the generation of many derivatives, morphine remains the most important analgesic in clinical use against which the performance of other drugs is measured.

Yu Yu Hakusho - Koenma on Tuguro
Toguro is a complex case. He's like an anthill - the deeper you dig the more tunnels appear, and inside each is a creature ready to bite. Layer upon layer of bravado, facades, contradicting desires, and intensely wrought obsessions. But beneath it all, I suspect you would find just a normal man with a wounded heart and a broken dream.
