Lewis Black
“We are all shitty little snowflakes dancing in the universe.”
Lewis Black, Me of Little Faith

Terry Pratchett
“Five exclamation marks, the sure sign of an insane mind.”
Terry Pratchett, Reaper Man

“On the first day I walked into Simon’s bustling headquarters, just across from City Hall, I encountered an intense young fund-raiser sitting in an open cubicle, working his quarry over the phone. Curious, I stopped to watch the spectacle. “Five hundred bucks? Five hundred bucks! You know what you’re telling me? You don’t give a shit about Israel,” the intense, wiry young man shouted at God knows which mover and shaker on the other end of the line. “I’d be embarrassed for you to take your five hundred bucks.” The kid hung up and stared at the phone, which rang an instant later. “Yeah, that’s better,” he said, in a markedly calmer tone. “Thanks.” Even at twenty-four, Rahm Emanuel had a gift for getting his point across, a quality I would see on display many times as we teamed up in the decades to come.”
David Axelrod, Believer: My Forty Years in Politics

Dan  Harmon
“Don't be so hard on yourself, don't put pressure on yourself, life is just a chain of experiments and results, and you'll be perfect when you're dead.”
Dan Harmon

Nick Hornby
“What really matters is what you like, not what you are like”
Nick Hornby, High Fidelity
