    Default Quote of the Day

    I have a huge collection of quotes from people I've encountered online. Most, I can't post here.

    What quote or saying resonates with you lately?


    “OH. DRAMA.
    Oh, hell.”
    ―Terry Pratchett, Reaper Man (Death is speaking)


    “All right," said Susan. "I'm not stupid. You're saying humans need... fantasies to make life bearable."

    REALLY? AS IF IT WAS SOME KIND OF PINK PILL? NO. HUMANS NEED FANTASY TO BE HUMAN. TO BE THE PLACE WHERE THE FALLING ANGEL MEETS THE RISING APE.

    "Tooth fairies? Hogfathers? Little—"

    YES. AS PRACTICE. YOU HAVE TO START OUT LEARNING TO BELIEVE THE LITTLE LIES.

    "So we can believe the big ones?"

    YES. JUSTICE. MERCY. DUTY. THAT SORT OF THING.

    "They're not the same at all!"

    YOU THINK SO? THEN TAKE THE UNIVERSE AND GRIND IT DOWN TO THE FINEST POWDER AND SIEVE IT THROUGH THE FINEST SIEVE AND THEN SHOW ME ONE ATOM OF JUSTICE, ONE MOLECULE OF MERCY. AND YET—Death waved a hand. AND YET YOU ACT AS IF THERE IS SOME IDEAL ORDER IN THE WORLD, AS IF THERE IS SOME... SOME RIGHTNESS IN THE UNIVERSE BY WHICH IT MAY BE JUDGED.

    "Yes, but people have got to believe that, or what's the point—"

    MY POINT EXACTLY.

    ―Terry Pratchett, Hogfather

    "I've done something useless! Does that make me civilzed?" - Kom, Le château des singes (Some english dubbed french film I saw on youtube.) I might make it my signature.

    My signature( a quote from Bill Cipher) pleases me immensely. A lot of my favorite quotes aren't even all that meaningful or important, I just like to say them. If I like to say them, if I like the way the words feel in my mouth, they become a favorite quote. Quotes from "Alice in Wonderland" thrill me.
    Reality is an illusion, the universe is hologram, buy gold, bye!

    When you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup, You put water into a bowl, it becomes the bowl, You put water into a teapot , it becomes the teapot, Be water my friend. Bruce Lee

    I note that those are vessels used for *drinking* water.

    Arthur Dent: "What are you doing?"
    Ford Prefect: "Preparing for hyperspace. It's rather unpleasantly like being drunk."
    Arthur Dent: "What's so wrong about being drunk?"
    Ford Prefect: "Ask a glass of water."

    Today's quote of the day is from someone on Twitter:

    Every other basic response: "We stand with our black employees "

    Ben & Jerry's: "WE GOTTA FUCKIN SMASH WHITE SUPREMACY. FUCK THE KKK AND FUCK YOU. BLACK LIVES MATTER. OUR NEW FLAVOR IS CALLED FUCK THE POLICE. IT'S GOT BLUEBERRIES"
