“God is a comedian playing to an audience that is too afraid to laugh.”

Jack London
“I would rather be a superb meteor, every atom of me in magnificent glow, than a sleepy and permanent planet.”
Jack London

F. Scott Fitzgerald
“His heart beat faster and faster as Daisy’s white face came up to his own. He knew that when he kissed this girl, and forever wed his unutterable visions to her perishable breath, his mind would never romp again like the mind of God. So he waited, listening for a moment longer to the tuning fork that had been struck upon a star. Then he kissed her. At his lips’ touch she blossomed like a flower and the incarnation was complete.”
F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby

David Bowie
“As you get older the questions come down to two or three. How long have I got and what am I gonna do with the time I've got left?”
David Bowie

Elana Dykewomon
“When you're eleven you think every idea is born with you, that no one ever tried it the right way before. Your example, your own honesty, will make you a hero to everyone who knows you - and better, it will make people come to their senses and stop telling vicious lies about each other.”
Elana Dykewomon, Beyond the Pale
