- The Rules of Sociological Method
If a science of societies exists, one must certainly not expect it to consist of a mere paraphrase of traditional prejudices. It should rather cause us to see things in a different way from the ordinary man, for the purpose of any science is to make discoveries, and all such discoveries more or less upset accepted opinions.
- Take your time
All I want you to do is take a break. All this typing is hurting your fingers, and I know that. So slow down, improve the accuracy, and get ready for the next quote so your fingers don't gain carpel tunnel.
- The Parting of the Ways S1 E13
Time Lords have this little trick, it's sort of a way of cheating death. Except... it means I'm going to change. And you're not going to see me again... not like this. Not with this daft old face. And before I go... before I go, I just want to tell you: you were fantastic. Absolutely fantastic. And do you know what? So was I.
The Ninth Doctor
- The End of the World- S1E2
You lot. You spend all your time thinking about dying, like you're going to get killed by eggs, or beef, or global warming, or asteroids. But you never take time to imagine the impossible: that maybe you survive.
Russell T Davies
- Doomsday- Doctor Who (2005) S2 E13
Planet Earth. This is where I was born. And this is where I died. For the first 19 years of my life, nothing happened. Nothing at all. Not ever. And then I met a man called the Doctor. A man who could change his face. He took me away from home, in his magical machine. He showed me the whole of time and space, I thought it would never end. That's what I thought. But then came the army of ghosts. Then Torchwood and the war. And that's when it all ended. This is the story of how I died.
- A True Life is a Good Life
A good life will not come when you'll take the decisions that are right, wise or brave. The thing you have to make sure is to be your decisions. It's not your right to choose your own path in life; it's your responsibility. Don't listen to others' stuff for your decisions. Always remember that you live your life, not theirs. In the end, anyone will see that it's worth it to make your mistakes. They are the reflection of your true - and good - life.
- Find the Courage in You
Why are we making mistakes? They're just confusing and difficult to handle. Some of them are because we don't know, others are because we can't. But most of them are because we know; and this makes it damn hard to handle with. We then get mad with ourselves and we think "how could I do something like that? I'm not that kind of person." Well, the sad truth is that who we are is only reflected by our actions. It's not important what you feel when a mistake, but to find the courage to prevent it.
The most loving parents and relatives commit murder with smiles on their faces. They force us to destroy the person we really are: a subtle kind of murder.
- Random Ads
Do you ever look at the ads at the top of the screen and wonder, why? Right now typing this, there is an ad for purple pillows and mattresses. Why the hell would I want a purple mattress? I have a bed, a queen size futon. What makes you think I would by a mattress? I'm a high school student, not an idiot. Actually I might be an idiot, because I want to buy that mattress.

- Math Lesson
Zero? You're right. Simple. That's it. Minus two plus two equals zero. He just filled the hole. Neither the Greeks nor the Romans were capable of using the concept of zero. It was your ancestors, the Mayas, who first contemplated the zero. The absence of value. True story. You burros have math in your blood.
- Good Day
Today is a good day; the sun is shining, the birds are chirping and my fingers are typing away on the keyboard like there's no tomorrow! Today is a good day.

- High School love
How many times have you seen some you know walking down the hallway holding hands with someone? And how many times do you wish that would happen to you? Just once to know what it's like to have some one care so much about you in a way no else does. Because in high school dating comes different then has been when you were in elementary school. You start to notice when you begin get lonely and miss just that little attention of that special person.
- Look into the mirror
When was the last time that you just looked in the mirror and thought about life. When you realise, yes, you are here and you have responsibilities and choices to make.
- Begginning meditation
Beginners will first meditate upon equanimity. Once that is established, they will then meditate upon the remaining three immeasurable qualities of love, compassion, and joy.

- A Fortunate Life
When we arrived at the twenty-five mile mark we stopped near a creek, took the horse out of the sulky, gave him a drink and then put the nose-bag on him for his meal. Jack and I sat on a log and ate our sandwiches. This man was one of the nicest and most understanding I had ever met. He told me he was from Scotland and that his father was financing him to become a farmer.
I can't live the button-down life like you. I want it all! The terrifying lows, the dizzying highs, the creamy middles! Sure, I might offend a few of the bluenoses with my cocky stride and musky odors. Oh, I'll never be the darling of the so-called city fathers who cluck their tongues, stroke their beards, and talk about, "What's to be done with this Homer Simpson?".
Back then, I always stared into the screen, and all I saw was static. This static then turned into the people that walk the streets, that work the same old jobs; these particles moving the same pattern, like they accept the madness that devours our world. After all the battles I've fought, now when I stare into the same screen, I see colors amidst the static. These colors suddenly combine, forming a clear image of me, how I've changed. All over the world, however, few can see past the static.
Look. Wait a moment. See how time doesn't stop. So don't stop trying to make your present the best it can be. Because soon isn't soon enough. Only right now is soon enough.
My bond is with the people, and I will serve this great nation at the pleasure of myself. If there's one thing I've proven it's that you can count on me to pleasure myself.
