More words of wit and 'wisdom' from an unlikely source...
It's easy to find something worth dying for. Do you have anything worth living for?
Everyone lies.... The innocent lie because they don't want to be blamed for something they didn't do, and the guilty lie because they don't have any other choice.
Sometimes doing the right thing doesn't change anything
Without forgiveness, you cannot mourn. And without mourning, you can never let go of the pain.
The third principle of sentient life is the capacity for self-sacrifice: the conscious ability to override evolution and self-preservation for a cause, a friend, a loved one.
I am Grey. I stand between the candle and the star. We are Grey. We stand between the darkness and the light.
There comes a time when you look into the mirror, and you realize that what you see is all that you will ever be. Then you accept it, or you kill yourself. Or you stop looking into mirrors....
I'll tell you one thing, if the primates that we came from had known that someday politicians would come out of the gene pool, they'd have stayed up in the trees and written evolution off as a bad idea ... I always thought the opposable thumb was overrated.
Then I will tell you a great secret.... Perhaps the greatest of all time. The molecules of your body are the same molecules that make up this... and all outside, that burn inside the stars themselves. We are starstuff. We are the universe made manifest, trying to figure itself out. As we have both learned, sometimes the universe requires a change of perspective.
Maybe somebody should've labelled the future "some assembly required".
Their honor? Oh, we've had plenty of that ourselves. Conspiracies of silence, because the larger ideals have to be protected. But you can't have larger ideals if the smaller ones get compromised. It's like building a house without a foundation....it can't stand!
I– I never thought there could be anything worse than being all alone in the night.
But there is. Being all alone in a crowd.
