- The Perks of Being a Wallflower
I don't know how much longer I can keep going without a friend. I used to be able to do it very easily, but that was before I knew what having a friend was like. It's much easier not to know things sometimes.
Asking questions to someone else about something I don't know about makes me feel uneducated and unknowledgeable. On the other hand, when someone else asks questions about something they don't know but I know, makes me feel relied upon, smart, and useful. I go through the first process to experience the second emotions.
- The Road
He walked out in the gray light and stood and he saw for a brief moment the absolute truth of the world. The cold relentless circling of the intestate earth. Darkness implacable. The blind dogs of the sun in their running. The crushing black vacuum of the universe. And somewhere two hunted animals trembling like ground-foxes in their cover. Borrowed time and borrowed world and borrowed eyes with which to sorrow it.
- The Road
The man squatted and looked at him. I'm scared, he said. Do you understand? I'm scared. The boy didn't answer. He just sat there with his head bowed, sobbing. You're not the one who has to worry about everything. The boy said something but he couldn't understand him. What? he said. He looked up, his wet and grimy face. Yes I am, he said. I am the one.
- Audeze LCD-X
I'm gonna tell you a story. You go to a party and you walk up to the guys and you're like, "I just bought a two thousand dollar big screen TV, and surround sound." Or you walk up to the wife and you're like, "What do you think of my new fifteen hundred dollar earrings I bought for you." And nobody bats an eye. But you mention once that you're thinking about spending seventeen hundred dollars on a set of headphones, and everybody loses their mind! And I don't understand why.
- The Second Bakery Attack
Alone now, I leaned over the edge of my boat and looked down to the bottom of the sea. The volcano was gone. The water's calm surface reflected the blue of the sky. Little waves--like silk pajamas fluttering in a breeze--lapped against the side of the boat. There was nothing else.

- The Road
He'd had this feeling before, beyond the numbness and the dull despair. The world shrinking down about a raw core of parsible entities. The names of things slowly following those things into oblivion. Colors. The names of birds. Things to eat. Finally the names of things one believed to be true. More fragile than he would have thought. How much was gone already? The sacred idiom shorn of its referents and so of its reality.
Many people says they hate music, reading, movies, or video games. But that is simply not true. They have too many genres to possibly hate every single one of them.

- Qwerty layout is a mess.
Did you know on the qwerty keyboard layout you can type the word "typewriter" only using the top row? It is purposely made to do that. It also shows how badly designed the qwerty layout is. In fact, over half of the letters you use in the English language are on the top row.
