“I’d imagine the whole world was one big machine. Machines never come with any extra parts, you know. They always come with the exact amount they need.

Hugo Cabret

Julian Gough
“Reasons aren't really things that make you do other things. Reasons are things that you make up, much later, to reassure everyone that we are all logical and that the world makes sense. We do unreasonable things, because we want to, at the time. No reason. Much later we sit in the wreckage, building reasons out of little bits of wreckage, so we'll have something to show the crash investigators. Look, this is what caused it. So the whole mess at least appears reasonable. So we can convince ourselves that at least there was a reason for the disaster, something we can prevent or avoid, so it'll never happen again. But a lot of the time there's no reason. We just flew it to the ground. Because we felt like it. And we're still dangerous. And it could happen again anytime.
Its easier to live with each other afterwards if we give each other reasons.”
Julian Gough, Juno & Juliet

John Updike
“But cities aren’t like people; they live on and on, even though their reason for being where they are has gone downriver and out to sea.”

“Little tree filled his lungs with the white airness of the night, as if he were going to fly.

Thomas Mullen
“The right thing was confusing, and difficult, and sometimes Jason wondered if it was in fact a nonexistent ideal, like heaven or the American dream. There was no right thing. You did what you did for whatever reasons occurred to you at the time, depending on whichever emotion was running thickest in your blood. Your desire and fear and adrenaline and longing. You made your choice and came up with the reasons later.”
Thomas Mullen, The Many Deaths of the Firefly Brothers

Markus Zusak, Underdog

Karl Kristian Flores
“The reasons of even the tiniest human gesture are the only thing that separate us from a rock that falls because of gravity. Reasons are all we have, so we might as well make them beautiful ones. Everything expires, except our decisions. Choice is immortal. They are like indelible soulwaves to the universe. Why climb higher and higher when you can ride the straight, rare line that is truth?”
Karl Kristian Flores, The Goodbye Song

Karl Kristian Flores
“One can expect the human race to continue to do bad things. Might as well break the flow. Intentions are all we have.”
Karl Kristian Flores, The Goodbye Song

“Tucking his cape behind him, Omvir thought of how others considered Bahadur's stutter a weakness, something to be mercilessly mocked, a sign of sins committed in past lives. But Omvir himself had seen it as a source of strength, much like the two thumbs Hrithik Roshan had on his right hand. He believed the actor's rhythm, the deftness with which he could manipulate his legs and torso and hands to the beats of a song--as if he had no spine, no bones--came from the extra appendage that others thought freakish. What was God-given couldn't be a mere imperfection; it was a gift. Omvir wanted to believe there was a reason for everything. Otherwise, what was the point?”
Deepa Anappara, Djinn Patrol on the Purple Line
