Love that quote!

"They don't care that the math doesn't work. They don't care that the young scream in protest and the old moan their same tired wisdoms. This is just a demonstration of their power. It is their power. They decide the winner. A game of merit won by birth. It keeps the hierarchy in place. It keeps us striving, but never conspiring."
- Pierce Brown, Red Rising
"Travel makes one modest. You see what a tiny place you occupy in the world."
- Gustave Flaubert

To get up each morning with the resolve to be happy is to set our own conditions to the events of each day. To do this is to condition circumstances instead of being conditioned by them....Ralph Waldo Trine

“(As a final note, in these days when we worry and we argue about whether ebooks are real books, I love how broad Ray Bradbury’s definition of a book is at the end, when he points out that we should not judge our books by their covers, and that some books exist between covers that are perfectly people-shaped.)”

"Why do you ask what / when the delicious question is when? / The only difference between past and present / ...is semantics. / Lives, lived, will live. / Dies, died, will die. / If we could perceive time as it really was... / what reason would grammar professors have to get out of bed? / Like us all, Lady Comstock exists across time. / She is both alive and dead. / She perceives being both. / She finds this condition... disagreeable." - Robert and Rosalind Lutece, Bioshock: Infinite

"You could tie my tongue
My lips, my teeth
Split them into surrender
Into a foreign language
And I would still manage
To cough up your name."
