"Got to have a subplot
When I sell them my life story
Maybe I should write it first
And do the living later
'cause life is so much cleaner on the page" - Extert from On the Page by Chroma Key, text written by Kevin Moore.

[to a group of newborn babies] "I used to be like you. A long time ago. All brand new and perfect. No mistakes, no regrets. People look at you and think of how wonderful your future will be. They want you to be something special, like a doctor, or a lawyer. I hate to tell you this, but if you grow up here, you're more likely to wind up selling your bodies on the streets, or shooting dope from dirty needles in a bus stop. And if you're successful, you'll make money selling junk to crackheads. And don't think twice about killing someone's wife, because you won't even know it's wrong in the first place. Maybe... you'll end up like me. A hobo with a shotgun."

"I cannot defend what I do not believe, and I will not raise my hand. Just because you can turn fear into hate, it don't make you a man. Oh, power does not make you holy, nor does anger make you right. It's a shame on the nightmare you're holding. I'll have nothing to do with your fight." -Mt Egypt

I went to see The Fellowship of the Ring extended edition in theaters yesterday, and the movie began with a special message from Peter Jackson and then a black screen with this quote on it. It really hit home Wink

Don't feel guilty, feel inspired!

Here's one for anyone who loves their dad, my dad, or han solo:

"From wrestling induced seizures to risking my life in a wild car chase, it seems like my dad is always there getting me into trouble. On the flip side, when there is an emergency, he and I are always the ones there to pick up the pieces. The point? If I met him in a bar on tatooine I'd probably be flying away on the millenium falcon with the empire on my heels, but yea, he also would totally be the one to cut open a tauntaun and shove me inside." - Ryona Noel

"…Growing up is all about getting hurt. And then getting over it. You hurt. You recover. You move on. Odds are pretty good you are just going to get hurt again. But each time, you learn something.

Each time, you come out of it a little stronger, and at some point you realize that there are more flavors of pain than coffee. There's the little empty pain of leaving something behind - graduating, taking the next step forward, walking out of the something familiar and safe into the unknown. There's the big, whirling pain of life upending all of your plans and expectations. There's the sharp little pains of failure, and the more obscure aches of successes that didn't give you what you thought they would. There are the vicious, stabbing pains of hopes being torn up. The sweet little pains of finding others, giving them your love, and taking joy in their life as they grow and learn. There's the steady pain of empathy that you shrug off so you can stand beside a wounded friend and help them bear their burdens.

And if you're very, very lucky, there are a few blazing hot pains you feel when you realize you are standing in a moment of utter perfection, an instant of triumph, or happiness, or mirth which at the same time cannot possibly last – and yet will remain with you for life…Pain is a part of life. Sometimes it’s a big part, and sometimes it isn’t, but either way, it’s part of the big puzzle, the deep music, the great game. Pain does two things: It teaches you, tells you that you’re alive. Then it passes away and leaves you changed. It leaves you wiser, sometimes. Sometimes it leaves you stronger. Either way, pain leaves its mark, and everything important that will ever happen to you in life is going to involve it in one degree or another."

Even in literature and art, no man who bothers about originality will ever be original: whereas if you simply try to tell the truth (without caring twopence how often it has been told before) you will, nine times out of ten, become original without ever having noticed it.

Insofar as I may be heard by anything, which may or may not care what I say, I ask, if it matters, that you be forgiven for anything you may have done or failed to do which requires forgiveness. Conversely, if not forgiveness but something else may be required to ensure any possible benefit for which you may be eligible after the destruction of your body, I ask that this, whatever it may be, be granted or withheld, as the case may be, in such a manner as to insure your receiving said benefit. I ask this in my capacity as your elected intermediary between yourself and that which may not be yourself, but which may have an interest in the matter of your receiving as much as it is possible for you to receive of this thing, and which may in some way be influenced by this ceremony. Amen.

-The Agnostic's Prayer, uttered by Madrak, a character from Roger Zelazny's Creatures of Light and Darkness.

" The sporting editors had also given me $300 in cash, most of which was already spent on extremely dangerous drugs. The trunk of the car looked like a mobile police narcotics lab. We had two bags of grass, seventy-five pellets of mescaline, five sheets of high-powered blotter acid, a salt shaker half full of cocaine, and a whole galaxy of multi-colored uppers, downers, screamers, laughers and also a quart of tequila, a quart of rum, a case of Budweiser, a pint of raw ether and two dozen amyls. Not that we needed all that for the trip, but once you get locked into a serious drug-collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can.
The only thing that really worried me was the ether. There is nothing in the world more helpless and irresponsible and depraved than a man in the depths of an ether binge. And I knew we'd get into that rotten stuff pretty soon."- Hunter S. Thompson

Don't get me wrong, I hate the guy with a white hot rage, but that's gotta be one of the more humorous things he's said. I think I want to make it a bumper sticker, along with a little note saying "PS, I'm a Gamer.". XD

"Pink Floyd transcends space and time." - a comment on one of Pink Floyd's videos on YouTube. Can't remember who said it, but I liked it Wink

"I’ve begun my voyage in a paper boat without a bottom; I will fly to the moon in it." - I have not been able to find the author of this, but supposedly the piece that it is a part of was a part of story dialogue for a mod for a game (I can't remember which one). The hunt for me to find this was quite interesting in itself.

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing. — Edmund Burke

Speak the truth, even if your voice shakes.
-Unknown (to me)

Monsters are real. Ghosts are real too. They live inside us and sometimes, they win.
-Stephen King

Courage does not always roar. Sometimes courage is that quiet voice at the end of the day that say "I will try again tomorrow."
-Mary Anne Radmacher

Smiling Mountain - "A term for the 'High Path," or perhaps the way of restraint and harmony. Many aspire to it, but few achieve it. It is a path of resisting tyranny. Of course the source of that tyranny varies. It is just as dangerous coming from without as within."

PC - "Give me examples."

Smiling Mountaint - "Tyranny from external sources is easy to find and fight. Defending those who cannot defend themselves is a reasonable example. But when your abilities are so much greater than those around you, there is the temptation to set everything right by might alone. That is tyranny from within."

PC - "Sometimes conflict cannot be avoided."

Smiling Mountain - "True, but that can become a convenient excuse. Eventually, you may decide that even direct violence is too inefficient for someone of your strength. It is a small leap from there to enforcing your will so that the crime never takes place. Suddenly, you are the oppressor, when all you wanted to do was make things right."

Smiling Mountain - "This Way of the Open Palm is not without its hidden dangers, despite the best of intentions."
