I'd have to say my favorite quote is in "Harrison Bergeron" by Vonnegut about equality and individuality:
"'Even as I stand here' he bellowed, 'crippled, hobbled, sickened - I am a greater ruler than any man who ever lived! Now watch me become what I can become!'"
Where is the line between insanity and creativity?
Is the reality of the world different from how we perceive and experience it in our minds? Does physical reality exist apart from the human mind?

“In history there are no control groups. There is no one to tell us what might have been. We weep over the might have been, but there is no might have been. There never was. It is supposed to be true that those who do not know history are condemned to repeat it. I don't believe knowing can save us. What is constant in history is greed and foolishness and a love of blood and this is a thing that even God--who knows all that can be known--seems powerless to change.”
― Cormac McCarthy, All the Pretty Horses
