“You ever watch a football game and get totally into it? Why? It's not a real battle. It's just a game somebody made up. So how can you take it seriously? Or, you ever see a movie that made your heart about jump out of your chest? Or one that made you cry? Why? It wasn't real. You ever look at a photo of food that made your mouth water? Why? You can't eat the picture.

Pete Hautman, Godless

“How do you know it's not true if you don't believe in it?”
Pete Hautman

“Later it might see moronic, but at that time it all made perfect sense.”
