Gaiman wrote this (according to a friend of mine) to help fund some copyright issue or another, and it's pretty clear throughout the writing that this isn't one of those typically incredibly well polished Gaiman masterpieces. And frankly, I'm okay wi ...more

Ray Bradbury
“A stranger is shot in the street, you hardly move to help. But if, half an hour before, you spent just ten minutes with the fellow and knew a little about him and his family, you might just jump in front of his killer and try to stop it. Really knowing is good. Not knowing, or refusing to know is bad, or amoral, at least. You can’t act if you don’t know.”
Ray Bradbury, Something Wicked This Way Comes

Ralph Waldo Emerson
“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day. You shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Vladimir Nabokov
“Human life is but a series of footnotes to a vast obscure unfinished masterpiece”
Vladimir Nabokov, Lolita

Ray Bradbury
“We'll just start walking today and see the world and the way the world walks around and talks, the way it really looks. I want to see everything now. And while none of it will be me when it goes in, after a while it'll all gather together inside and it'll be me. Look at the world out there, my God, my God, look at it out there, outside me, out there beyond my face and the only way to really touch it is to put it where it's finally me, where it's in the blood, where it pumps around a thousand times ten thousand a day. I get hold of it so it'll never run off. I'll hold onto the world tight some day. I've got one finger on it now; that's a beginning.”
Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451

John Wick
“It is dark. You cannot see. Only the hint of stars out the broken window. And a voice as old as the Snake from the Garden whispers, 'I will hold your hand.”
John Wick

Description: I'm starting to write again, and it gives my ego a huge boost to know I'm being read. So even if you don't have anything to say about, please leave me a comment saying you read it. And if you didn't like it feel free to tell me why
