Ambrose Bierce
Pray, v. To ask that the laws of the universe be annulled in behalf of a single petitioner, confessedly unworthy.”
Ambrose Bierce, The Unabridged Devil's Dictionary

Michael Chabon
“You read my Cosmo?"
"I read all of your magazines. I took all the love quizzes and pretended I was you answering the questions."
"How did I do?"
"You cheated," I said.”
Michael Chabon, The Mysteries of Pittsburgh

Stephen Colbert
“Remember, you cannot be both young and wise. Young people who pretend to be wise to the ways of the world are mostly just cynics. Cynicism masquerades as wisdom, but it is the farthest thing from it. Because cynics don’t learn anything. Because cynicism is a self-imposed blindness, a rejection of the world because we are afraid it will hurt us or disappoint us. Cynics always say no. But saying “yes” begins things. Saying “yes” is how things grow. Saying “yes” leads to knowledge. “Yes” is for young people. So for as long as you have the strength to, say “yes'.”
Stephen Colbert

Eddie Izzard
“So the American government lied to the Native Americans for many, many years, and then President Clinton lied about a relationship, and everyone was surprised! A little naïve, I feel!”
Eddie Izzard

Bill Watterson
“You know, Hobbes, some days even my lucky rocket ship underpants don't help.”
Bill Watterson
