Rapture is coming back to life. Even now, can't you hear the breath returning to her lung? The shops reopening, the schools humming with the thoughts of young minds? My city will live. My city will thrive. And, when that day comes, we'll use your tombstone for paving tiles.
Children who doubt their parents love towards them will grow up to have hearts as strong as steel, but minds full of doubts. But bad things do have some good in them, as the children who have grown up without love will be careful, as to not make the same mistakes their parents have made.
Somebody was saying to Picasso that he ought to make pictures of things the way they are - objective pictures. He mumbled he wasn't quite sure what that would be. The person who was bullying him produced a photograph of his wife from his wallet and said, "There, you see, that is a picture of how she really is." Picasso looked at it and said, "She is rather small, isn't she? And flat?"
Life is a series of events good and bad. But its up to you to turn those bad events into good ones. Choose your actions wisely as you do your choices and you will have a fun adventurous life.
- The Lion and the Unicorn
As I write, highly civilized human beings are flying overhead, trying to kill me. They do not feel any enmity against me as an individual, nor I against them. They are 'only doing their duty', as the saying goes. Most of them, I have no doubt, are kindhearted, law-abiding men who would never dream of committing murder in private life.

- My Favourite Colour is Drama Llama
Why is my favourite colour "Drama Llama" you may ask? There is one simple answer. It is that Johnny goes to the gym on Fridays and Susie eats an apple every other day, therefore making avacados the best noodle to drank, also meaning that y+z=qwer, if t=1.7809 then my banana is purple-icious.
- The Turn of the Screw (Prologue - Opening Paragraph)
The story had held us, round the fire, sufficiently breathless, but except the obvious remark that it was gruesome, as, on Christmas Eve in an old house, a strange tale should essentially be, I remember no comment uttered till somebody happened to say that it was the only case he had met in which such a visitation had fallen on a child.
- Dwarf Women
It's true you don't see many dwarf women. And in fact, they are so alike in voice and appearance, that they are often mistaken for dwarf men. And this in turn has given rise to the belief that there are no dwarf women, and that dwarves just spring out of holes in the ground!
Sometimes when people go to Vietnam, they go home to their mommas without any legs. Sometimes they don't go home at all. That's a bad thing. That's all I have to say about that.

- People Die
People die. This is the fact the world desperately hides from us from birth. Long after you find out the truth about sex and Santa Claus, this other myth endures. This one about how you'll always get rescued at the last second, and if not your death will at least mean something and there will be somebody there to hold your hand and cry over you... The whole world is a big, noisy puppet show meant to distract us from the fact that, at the end, you'll die and you'll probably be alone.

Scientists talk about dark matter; the invisible, mysterious substance that occupies the space between stars. Dark matter makes up 99.99 percent of the universe, and they don't know what it is. Well, I do. It's apathy. Pile together everything that we know and care about in the universe and it will still be nothing more than a tiny speck in the middle of a vast, black ocean of Who Gives A F**k.
After Earth-Will Smith
The only place that fear can exist is in our thoughts of the future. It is a product of our imagination, causing us to fear things that do not at present and may not ever exist. That is near insanity. Do not misunderstand me; danger is very real but fear is a choice.
I saw a dog once his name was dog and he was nice and he was a good boy and he was cool and he was a dog he was a cool color and he was a good dog that was nice.
There will always be challenges on our journey towards achieving greatness. But these challenges are nothing compared to the ones we impose on ourselves. Doubt will not unsettle our ability to achieve. Distractions won't hinder our progress. And complacency will not rule over us. The only thing holding us back from achieving greatness is ourselves.
- Memnoch the Devil
In the Savage Garden you shine beautifully, my friend. You walk as if it is your garden to do with as you please. And in my wanderings, I always return to you. I always return to see the colours of the garden in your shadow, or reflected in your eyes, perhaps, or to hear of your latest follies and mad obsessions.
- Queen of the Damned
It's an awful truth that suffering can deepen us, give a greater lustre to our colours, a richer resonance to our words. That is, if it doesn't destroy us, if it doesn't burn away the optimism and the spirit, the capacity for visions, and the respect for simple yet indispensable things.
- The One
Pretend you are walking down a sidewalk. You see the swing set at the playground. One seat is swinging with the wind. You hear all of the children laughing and playing around. You finally get home. You grab a snack and eat it. You feel alone. You realize you need someone. Someone who cares about you, someone who is nice to you, someone who eats with you at the kitchen table for every meal, someone who... Loves You.
