“I don't believe in fate, though, because fate isn't as much fun as freewill. But I do believe that everything is exactly as it should be.”

“Helping is good, but too many helpings make us fat. We forget then. We forget to exercise.”

“Death is a cure to a lot of things like cancer and disease and happiness, although I'm not sure anyone would want to be cured of happiness. And some might not want to be cured from cancer if that cure means death, because then they aren't alive anymore and being alive with cancer is something.”
