My old composition teacher from university always said that anything written on paper is better than a blank page, and I've carried that philosophy through with me to the very end.

Chuck Palahniuk
“You are not special. You're not a beautiful and unique snowflake. You're the same decaying organic matter as everything else. We're all part of the same compost heap. We're all singing, all dancing crap of the world.”
Chuck Palahniuk, Fight Club

Homer
“Rage - Goddess, sing the rage of Peleus' son Achilles,
murderous, doomed, that cost the Achaeans countless losses,
hurling down to the House of Death so many sturdy souls,
great fighters' souls, but made their bodies carrion,
feasts for the dogs and birds,
and the will of Zeus was moving toward its end.
Begin, Muse, when the two first broke and clashed,
Agamemnon lord of men and brilliant Achilles.”
Homer, The Iliad/The Odyssey

Oscar Wilde
