We must not see any person as an abstraction. Instead, we must see in every person a universe with its own secrets, with its own treasures, with its own sources of anguish, and with some measure of triumph.
- Evading Reality
The original version from a 1961 symposium read: Man is free to choose not to be conscious, but not free to escape the penalty of unconsciousness: destruction. Over the years this has been tightened up to read: We can evade reality, but we cannot evade the consequences of evading reality.
- USH - 1920 and the Great Depression Part One
The US enters WW1 because of German agression and economics. The US gov sold Liberty bonds, which is when they invest in another government. The US sets up a commmitee of public information, where they implemented propaganda to the public. This commitee sent war news to the newspapers which announced US victories and depicted german atrocities. Not all of these news were necessarily true. As a result, average German citizens were attacked and vandalized.

- Npc goes Mad
Ok, I've just about had my FILL of riddle asking, quest assigning, insult throwing, pun hurling, hostage taking, iron mongering, smart-arsed fools, freaks, and felons that continually test my will, mettle, strength, intelligence, and most of all, patience! If you've got a straight answer ANYWHERE in that bent little head of yours, I want to hear it and pretty damn quick.
- The stars and the signs.
Thirty degrees latitude... longitude varying greatly... moons in conjunction with... pardon my lack of focus, but I've been studying the skies for some time now. Now I've a positively wicked kink in my neck, and cannot seem to focus on anything closer than the horizon. Such are the pains of astrology, I suppose.

- Hate for Hate
Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that.

- The Judging Eye
A beggar's mistake harms no one but the beggar. A king's mistake, however, harms everyone but the king. Too often, the measure of power lies not in the number who obey your will, but in the number who suffer your stupidity.
Pure entertainment is not an egotistical lady singing boring songs onstage for two hours and people in tuxes clapping whether they like it or not. It's the real performers on the street who can hold people's attention and keep them from walking away.
- The Art of War
If your enemy is secure at all points, be prepared for him. If he is in superior strength, evade him. If your opponent is temperamental, seek to irritate him. Pretend to be weak, that he may grow arrogant. If he is taking his ease, give him no rest. If his forces are united, separate them. If sovereign and subject are in accord, put division between them. Attack him where he is unprepared, appear where you are not expected.
I hate socializing, I hate talking to people, I honestly hate people. People ask why, and the answer probably is that I hate myself. I wish I could give some sort of advice to anyone else dealing with this as well, however I cannot give advice that I cannot follow.
I think that we, yes, we, the people here on this website have truely made something special. My sister will always walk past me before I go to sleep, asking why I am taking a typing test, when I could be doing literally anything. Drawing, animating, coding, gaming, but no. Why? Because this website is truly special. We add our own quotes and famous quotes, we add our spice to it. People are polite. I hope this never ends. Thanks.
When you get a question what is the fastest thing on earth? -There can be many answers but the fastest thing on earth is actually your mind, when you thing of something to eat, do. That comes instanly from your mind!!!

- Would You Rather
What I don't understand is why people would rather make someone feel bad about themselves,then good about themselves. Think of it this way: would you rather have people make you hate, loath, detest yourself or would you rather people make you love yourself so much that your confident enough to share who you truly are.
Everyone communicating, and loud speaking. I just.. I can't stand the talking. I just want to speak, but I'm to shy. I'm quiet, quiet when I'm in my room. Quiet in my school. Quiet everywhere. I wish I could just be louder.

- Zooey, from 'Franny and Zooey'
My God. I can't even sit down to lunch with a man anymore and hold up my end of a decent conversation. I either get so bored or so goddam preachy that if the son of a bitch had any sense, he'd break his chair over my head.
Edward is such a nice guy he helps others a lot even though he doesn't want to. Edward is a weird kid he likes to help Roger the most cause he is a nice person and he is fun to hang around he can even make you happy even though he is a very cringe worthy person.
