Born free but still, they hate
Born me, no I can’t change

Tim McIlrath — Make It Stop (September's Children)

If life transcends death, then I will seek for you there. If not, then there too.

James S.A. Corey — Caliban's War

Once is never. Twice is always.

James S.A. Corey — Cibola Burn

Against all evidence, I keep thinking the assholes are outliers.

James S.A. Corey — Babylon's Ashes

No, let us not conquer the heavens. It is enough to have the power to do so. War engenders war, and victory defeat. God, conquered, will become Satan; Satan, conquering, will become God. May the fates spare me this terrible lot!‎

Anatole France — The Revolt of the Angels

I believe that life is a game, that life is a cruel joke, and that life is what happens when you’re alive and that you might as well lie back and enjoy it.

Neil Gaiman — American Gods

There’s none so blind as those who will not listen.

Terry Pratchett — Hogfather

All dwarfs have beards and wear up to twelve layers of clothing. Gender is more or less optional.

Terry Pratchett — Guards, Guards!

If I could be with you tonight
I would sing you to sleep
Never let them take the light behind your eyes
One day I’ll lose this fight
As we fade in the dark
Just remember you will always burn as bright

Gerard Way — The Light Behind Your Eyes

It is perfectly true, as philosophers say, that life must be understood backwards. But they forget the other proposition, that it must be lived forwards.

Søren Kierkegaard — Journalen JJ:167

“Nature” is not to be understood as that which is just present-at-hand, nor as the power of Nature. The wood is a forest of timber, the mountain a quarry of rock; the river is water-power, the wind is wind ‘in the sails’.

Martin Heidegger — Being and Time

“Hear, hear!” I said. “‘Less than perfect.’ What I’ve been aiming for all my life.”

Robert A. Heinlein — The Moon is a Harsh Mistress

“Yeah, well, what are you gonna do. Life’s a bitch and then you die, right?”
“Sometimes. Sometimes life’s a bitch and then you keep on living.”

Bojack Horseman — S06E16

“Never forget in the story of Jesus the hero was killed by the state”

Killer Mike — walking in the snow

It takes a while to realize that God can empty garbage.

Ram Dass — Be Here Now
