Hey now, my mother is huge and don't you forget it. The drunk can't even get off the couch to make herself a vodka drenched sandwich. Octopus suck.

Let us never negotiate out of fear. But let us never fear to negotiate.

- John F. Kennedy

 

I heard this version first though, which I prefer:

Never fear to compromise, but never compromise out of fear.

Fortune favors the bald.

Guest The Architect

"The world is like a ride in an amusement park. And when you choose to go on it you think it's real because that's how powerful our minds are. And the ride goes up and down and round and round. It has thrills and chills and it's very brightly coloured and it's very loud and it's fun, for a while.

 

Some people have been on the ride for a long time and they begin to question: "Is this real, or is this just a ride?" And other people have remembered, and they come back to us, they say, "Hey, don't worry, don't be afraid, ever, because, this is just a ride." And we... kill those people.

 

"Shut him up. We have a lot invested in this ride shut him up. Look at my furrows of worry, look at my big bank account, and my family. This has to be real." It's just a ride. But we at least try and kill those good guys who tell us that you ever notice that? And let the demons run a muck. But it doesn't matter, because...

 

It's just a ride, and we can change it any time we want. It's only a choice. No effort, no work, no job, no savings and money, a choice, right now, between fear and love. The eyes of fear want you to put bigger locks on your door, buy guns, close yourself off. The eyes of love instead, see all of us as one.

 

Here's what we can do to change the world right now, to a better ride. Take all that money we spend on weapons and defence each year and instead spend it feeding, clothing and educating the poor of the world which it would many times over, not one human being excluded and we can explore space together, both inner and outer, forever, in peace."

"I like my sex the way I play basketball. One on one with as little dribbling as possible." - Leslie Nielsen

 

"Life... is like a grapefruit. It's orange and squishy, and has a few pips in it, and some folks have half a one for breakfast." - Douglas Adams

 

"Maybe there is no actual place called hell. Maybe hell is just having to listen to our grandparents breathe through their noses when they're eating sandwiches." - Jim Carrey

 

"The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far. The sciences, each straining in its own direction, have hitherto harmed us little; but some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the light into the peace and safety of a new dark age."

- Howard Phillips Lovecraft, "The Call of Cthulhu"

 

Yeah. That was Lovecraft's favorite quote to, and attributing it to him would be faulty. Algernon Blackwood wrote that.

"Quoting yourself is like giving yourself a bj in the mirror. Completely blowhardy and slightly queer."

There was a time when I questioned the ability for the schizoid to ever experience genuine happiness, at the very least for a prolonged segment of time. I am no closer to finding the answer, however, it has become apparent that contentment is certainly a realizable goal. I find these results to be adequate, if not pleasing. Unfortunately, connection is another subject entirely. When one has sufficiently examined the mind and their emotional constructs, connection can be easily imitated. More data must be gleaned and further collated before a sufficient judgment can be reached.

I'm going to to get my engineers to invent a combustible lemon that burns your house down!"

Any man who is under 30, and is not a liberal, has no heart; and any man who is over 30, and is not a conservative, has no brains."

- Sir Winston Churchill

 

"At what point shall we expect the approach of danger? By what means shall we fortify against it? Shall we expect some transatlantic military giant, to step the Ocean, and crush us at a blow? Never! All the armies of Europe, Asia, and Africa combined, with all the treasure of the earth...could not by force, take a drink from the Ohio, or make a track on the Blue Ridge, in a trial of a thousand years... If destruction be our lot, we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of freemen, we must live through all time, or die by suicide."

- Abraham Lincoln

 

"Who would fear the wrath of cowards?"

-Thomas Paine

 

"If there are no dogs in heaven I do not want to go. When I die, send me wherever they went"

-Roy Rogers

 

"How many legs does a dog have if you call the tail a leg? Four. Calling a tail a leg doesn't make it a leg."

- Abraham Lincoln

 

"There is nothing on earth half so terrifying as a truly just man"

-George R.R. Martin

"While it is true you learn with age, the down side is what you often learn is what a damn fool you were before"

As I get older, I find myself more and more in agreement with this one:

 

"My memory of how I was at the age of eighteen was that I knew absolutely everything there was to know. There were no subjects on which I didn't have a coherent and forceful opinion. And as the years go by, that has just fallen away. I feel like a baby now. I feel as if I have less and less technical expertise. I feel like I know nothing about anything. I suppose what's actually happening is that the arrogance of one's youth is just sort of disintegrating. And the truth is, I never knew anything."

 

----- Hugh Laurie

“Things are as they are. Looking out into the universe at night, we make no comparisons between right and wrong stars, nor between well and badly arranged constellations.” – Alan Watts
