“Relationships are mysterious. We doubt the positive qualities in others, seldom the negative. You will say to your partner: do you really love me? Are you sure you love me? You will ask this a dozen times and drive the person nuts. But you never ask: are you really mad at me? Are you sure you’re angry? When someone is angry, you don’t doubt it for a moment. Yet the reverse should be true. We should doubt the negative in life, and have faith in the positive.”
Christopher Pike, Remember Me

“Death never comes at the right time, despite what mortals believe. Death always comes like a thief.”
Christopher Pike, The Last Vampire

“Before I begin, may I ask how old you are?"
"You may ask."
"How old are you?"
"It's none of your business”
Christopher Pike, The Last Vampire
