“Parents raise children then grow old, and their children forget the things their old parents did for them, because their brains don’t remember before they grew selfish.
There are buildings all over the world full of old people sitting around looking out of windows, full of hate for their selfish sons and daughters.
And meanwhile, the selfish sons and daughters look out of their windows at their children playing and think how wonderful their unbreakable bond of love is between them and their children.”

“Some humans have a notion covering up their face makes them stand out to other people who don’t notice them, because they look like everyone else.

Then watch with a smile as they pretend you aren't there, and whisper you must be crazy, because you want to make friends.”

“All snowmen look to the sky, knowing their death will be delivered by the horizon. Before dawn, their life becomes the darkest. The moment before the sun burns all.

The broken carrot noses.”

“Without a passport humans wouldn't know where they’re from, who they are or who their enemy is, and their enemy wouldn't know why they had an enemy, what language they spoke, and where best to avoid.
The passport is said to be what makes them free, but if freedom is given, freedom cannot be free.”
Craig Stone, How to Hide from Humans
“There’s only one Earth, and it’s tiny, but evil human leaders avoid problems they don’t want to resolve by giving them names which make the problems sound like they’re taking place in a different world: they make people not care about other people dying of starvation by calling the place the dying live “the third world.”

They can do anything: they can eat through walls and bring buildings together to form mighty empires.
They can build floating cities and flying tin cans.
But they still can’t make their own beds.”
Craig Stone, How to Hide from Humans
