- East of Eden
And this I believe: that the free, exploring mind of the individual human is the most valuable thing in the world. And this I would fight for: the freedom of the mind to take any direction it wishes, undirected. And this I must fight against: any idea, religion, or government which limits or destroys the individual. This is what I am and what I am about.
- East of Eden
But the Hebrew word, the word timshel-'Thou mayest'- that gives a choice. It might be the most important word in the world. That says the way is open. That throws it right back on a man. For if 'Thou mayest'-it is also true that 'Thou mayest not.
Hannah Arendt (closely paraphrased)
- Even in the darkest of times
Even in the darkest of times we have the right to expect some illumination, and that such illumination might well come less from theories and concepts than from the uncertain, flickering, and often weak light that some in their lives and their worksl kindle under almost all circumstances and shed over their lifes.
I began to realize how important it was to be an enthusiast in life. If you are interested in something, no matter what it is, go at it at full speed. Embrace it with both arms, hug it, love it and above all become passionate about it. Lukewarm is no good.
Breathing but I've been dying inside, nothing new and nothing feels right. Deja vu so I close my eyes and let the demon sing me a lullaby. Today's a present that I don't want so I'm wandering in this world. Am I really the only one who's been wanting to hide out from the sun? When we live a life always dreaming for a dream to come true. This meaningless life.

Ride with the mob. Alhamdulallah. Check in with me, and do ya job. Ferg is the name, Ben Baller did the chain. Tourneau for the watch. Presi plain Jane.
- Hard Luck Hank - Screw the Galaxy!
May you not be betrayed and murdered by your best friend; unloved, your corpse deserted in the coldness of space, where memory of you would swiftly become less substantial than the faded light of a long-dead star.
- Stop Doing This Now
When I come to this site, it is not for motivational or inspiring messages. It is to practice and thus improve my typing. I do not want to be submitted to several conflicting opinions on the nature of love and life in the space of one visit; I would rather type the Bee Movie script. Please, stop submitting inspirational quotes.
We all need to be God fearing people, especially during these times. Because when we fear the wrath of God, we do not sin. For the penalty of sin is death.
- Gravity and Grace
All the natural movements of the soul are controlled by laws analogous to those of physical gravity. Grace is the only exception. Grace fills empty spaces, but it can only enter where there is a void to receive it, and it is grace itself which makes this void. The imagination is continually at work filling up all the fissures through which grace might pass.
- The Underarm Incident
We keep reading and hearing that the players are under a lot of pressure, and that they're tired and jaded, and perhaps their judgment and their skill is blunted. Well perhaps they might advance that as an excuse for what happened out there today. Not with me they don't. I think it was a very poor performance. One of the worst things I have ever seen done on a cricket field.
- The Way of Kings
Overcome your guilt. Care, but not too much. Take responsibility, but don't blame yourself. Protect, save, help - but know when to give up. They're precarious ledges to walk. How do I do it?
Will I ever get back to "normal life?" Prior to Coronavirus, i spent a lot of time at parks, restaurants, movie theaters, concerts, church and more. In the first few weeks of lockdown, i felt stifled by all of the restrictions. Now, I still miss all of those things, but I've come to appreciate the quarantine routine. We do the same things each week. We have a pattern that is working. I think the outside world will seem loud and chaotic after months at home. Will I ever want to wear shoes again?
- Toilet Humour
Is it just my family that likes to use the term "Hollywood ending" to describe the satisfaction of wiping after a poop to discover it left the toilet paper clean? We also like to shout "hurry up, I have a turtle's head poking out!" whilst banging on the bathroom door when we really need to go. "I'm touching cloth" is another. We play a game called "guess the fart," when you feel a fart coming, you say "guess the fart" then everyone makes the sound they think your fart will sound like.
- Triangulum The Friendly Triangle Part 6
Steven found himself unable to speak and unable to hold his tears back, A choking sensation crept up his throat as he wept uncontrollably. Steven was young, only 13 years old, and he had always been a good little triangle; he always did what his family told him. "What is your wish?, it can be anything, and after a day of sacrifices and blood letting for the gods it will be yours" Charles said trying to ignore the pathetic sight of this child's weeping.

- Triangulum The Friendly Triangle Part 4
Each of the three walls around were a pale green. Adjacent to Stevens bed was a counter, on the counter were countless vials and tubes of various sizes and shapes, one of them caught Stevens eye, it was a wide jar with a red liquid and a Triangulon lung was floating in near the top. Before he had the chance to further examine his room, or even notice how many machines he was connected to, his door opened slowly.

Realistically speaking, oftentimes, one's happiness comes at the expense of someone else's. Struggling, competing against each other... Happiness attained through victory certainly exists too. In that case, what can we do? Nothing. There are limits. Isn't it conceited to say you want to attain everything?
