    Bill Watterson
    Isn't it strange that evolution would give us a sense of humor?

    When you think about it, it's weird that we have a physiological response to absurdity. We laugh at nonsense. We like it. We think it's funny.

    Don't you think it's odd that we appreciate absurdity? Why would we develop that way? How does it benefit us?

    I suppose if we couldn't laugh at the things that don't make sense, we couldn't react to a lot of life.”
    Bill Watterson

    And now, while the analogy sinks in, I will be leaving you drips and going outside...”
    Bill Watterson

    Joss Whedon
    “Passion. It lies in all of us. Sleeping... waiting... and though unwanted, unbidden, it will stir... open its jaws and howl. It speaks to us... guides us. Passion rules us all. And we obey. What other choice do we have? Passion is the source of our finest moments. The joy of love... the clarity of hatred... the ecstasy of grief. It hurts sometimes more than we can bear. If we could live without passion, maybe we'd know some kind of peace. But we would be hollow. Empty rooms, shuttered and dank. Without passion, we'd be truly dead.”
    Joss Whedon
