- If you can't ....
If you cannot find something to live for, then find something to die for. For all men should have purpose, and purposely should the man live. For he without purpose, serves no purposes in life.
PewDiePie is an amazing YouTuber, and you should watch his videos. He has about 100 million subscribers last time I have checked, and you should subscribe. He made Minecraft videos one time, and everyone liked that! Thank you!
- What is life?
What is life? Is it a neverending cycle of happiness or sadness? Is it an endless journey that will only end when you die? There are many questions about life, and no one could never know all of the answers. What do you think? After all, opinions are opinions.
- Physical force
To force a man to drop his own mind and to accept your will as a substitute, with a gun in place of a syllogism, with terror in place of proof, and death as the final argument is to attempt to exist in defiance of reality. Reality demands of man that he act for his own rational interest; your gun demands of him that he act against it. Reality threatens man with death if he does not act on his rational judgment; you threaten him with death if he does.

I turned right onto the A410 which went north with suspiciously Roman straightness toward Aymestrey, which is less a village than a diorama of the last six hundred years of English vernacular architecture stretched along either side of the road.
- Foxglove Summer
Dominic tooled up five minutes later in a ten-year-old Nissan pickup truck that had been painted a non-standard khaki, dipped in dried mud up to the wheel arches and then randomly smacked with a sledgehammer to give it that Somali Technical look. I found myself checking to see if there was a mount for a fifty-caliber machine gun in the back.

There are people who have been touched by, let's call it for the sake of argument, magic to the point where they're no longer entirely people even under human rights legislation. Nightingale calls them the fae but that's a catch-all term like the way the Greeks used the word 'barbarian' or the Daily Mail uses 'Europe'.
Waring, J. I.
- Early mention of a harlequin fetus in America
On Thursday, April the 5th, 1750, I went to see a most deplorable object of a child... The skin was dry and hard and seemed to be cracked in many places, somewhat resembling the scales of a fish. The mouth was large and round and open. It had no external nose, but two holes where the nose should have been. The eyes appeared to be lumps of coagulated blood, turned out, about the bigness of a plum, ghastly to behold... It lived about forty-eight hours and was alive when I saw it.
- Someone You Loved
Now the day bleeds into nightfall and you are not here to get me through it all. I let my guard down and then you pulled the rug. I was getting kind of used to being someone you loved.
- You Were There
I was there when you drew the breath of life, and I could hear your voice the first time that you cried. And though you couldn't see me, I was very near. There is something now I want you to hear. You will always be a child in my eyes, and when you need some love my arms are open wide. And even when you are growing old I hope you realize, you will always be a child in my eyes.
- The State of America
Oh, America. I wish I could tell you that this was still America, but I've come to realize that you can't have a country without people. And there are no people here. No, my friends. This is now the United States of Zombieland.

Followed your name, into the wild... Showed you my shame, ran a mile... I sing your lullabies, melody like a symphony... We walk the same, into the fire. Well, well, well, well.
