Quote of the Day- November 25, 2015

“And they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.”
— Isaiah 2:4

Something for all you God-Fearing Folks out there to reflect on when you’re screaming for governments to murder all muslims. 

Quote of the Day- November 13, 2015

“Have you ever been in love? Horrible isn’t it? It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens up your heart and it means that someone can get inside you and mess you up. You build up all these defenses, you build up a whole suit of armor, so that nothing can hurt you, then one stupid person, no different from any other stupid person, wanders into your stupid life…You give them a piece of you. They didn’t ask for it. They did something dumb one day, like kiss you or smile at you, and then your life isn’t your own anymore. Love takes hostages. It gets inside you. It eats you out and leaves you crying in the darkness, so simple a phrase like ‘maybe we should be just friends’ turns into a glass splinter working its way into your heart. It hurts. Not just in the imagination. Not just in the mind. It’s a soul-hurt, a real gets-inside-you-and-rips-you-apart pain. I hate love.”

-Neil Gaiman, Sandman

How has Hot Topic not jumped all over this?

Quote of the Day- November 10, 2015

“All men dream; but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity; but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act out their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible.” 

-T.E. Lawrence

That is the most obnoxious sheath for a knife that I’ve ever seen.

Quote of the Day- October 28, 2015

“Fantasy isn’t just a jolly escape: It’s an escape, but into something far more extreme than reality, or normality. It’s where things are more beautiful and more wondrous and more terrifying. You move into a world of conflicting extremes.”

Terry Gilliam

Heh. He said “Jolly.”

Quote of the Day- October 10, 2015

1492: As children, we were taught to memorize this year with pride and joy as the year people began living full and imaginative lives on the continent of North America. 

Actually, people had been living full and imaginative lives on the continent of North America for hundreds of years before that. 1492 was simply the year sea pirates began to rob, cheat and kill them. 

-Kurt Vonnegut, Slaughterhouse Five
