“You know my name, not my story. You’ve heard what I’ve done, but not what I’ve been through.”

– Jonathan Anthony Burkett, Neglected But Undefeated

“We started off trying to set up a small anarchist community, but people wouldn’t obey the rules.”

– Alan Bennett, Getting On

“Some people appear to be happy, but they simply don’t give the matter much thought. Others make plans: I’m going to have a husband, a home, two children, a house in the country. As long as they’re busy doing that, they’re like bulls looking for the bullfighter: they react instinctively, they blunder on, with no idea where the target is. They get their car, sometimes they even get a Ferrari, and they think that’s the meaning of life, and they never question it. Yet their eyes betray the sadness that even they don’t know they carry in their soul. Are you happy?”

– Paulo Coelho, The Zahir

“Do you know how there are moments when the world moves so slowly you can feel your bones shifting, your mind tumbling? When you think that no matter what happens to you for the rest of your life, you will remember every last detail of that one minute forever?”

“If you sit down and think about it sensibly, you come up with some very funny ideas. Like: why make people inquisitive, and then put some forbidden fruit where they can see it with a big neon finger flashing on and off saying ‘THIS IS IT!’? … I mean, why do that if you really don’t want them to eat it, eh? I mean, maybe you just want to see how it all turns out. Maybe it’s all part of a great big ineffable plan. All of it. You, me, him, everything. Some great big test to see if what you’ve built all works properly, eh? You start thinking: it can’t be a great cosmic game of chess, it has to be just very complicated Solitaire.”

– Neil Gaiman

“Lottery: A tax on people who are bad at math.”

– Ambrose Bierce

“Always choose the future over the past. What do we do now?”

– Brian Tracy

“The whole house seemed to exhale a melancholy breath of emptiness.”

– Michael Chabon

“In heaven an angel is no one in particular.”

– George Bernard Shaw
