  • "Life isn’t divided into genres. It’s a horrifying, romantic, tragic, comical, science-fiction cowboy detective novel with a bit of pornography if you're lucky.

    There are people. There are stories. The people think they shape the stories, but the reverse is often closer to the truth.

    The main thing that I learned about conspiracy theory is that conspiracy theorists actually believe in a conspiracy because that is more comforting. The truth of the world is that it is chaotic. The truth is, that it is not the Jewish banking conspiracy or the grey aliens or the 12 foot reptiloids from another dimension that are in control. The truth is more frightening, nobody is in control. The world is rudderless."

    -Alan Moore-

    Wealth without work;

    Knowledge without character;
    Commerce without morality;
    Science without humanity;
    Worship without sacrifice;
    Politics without principals"

    "All that is gold does not glitter, Not all those who wander are lost; The old that is strong does not wither, Deep roots are not reached by the frost. From the ashes a fire shall be woken, A light from the shadows shall spring; Renewed shall be blade that was broken, The crownless again shall be king."J. R. R. Tolkien

    "Believe not because some old manuscripts are produced, believe not because it is your national belief, believe not because you have been made to believe from your childhood, but reason truth out, and after you have analyzed it, then if you find it will do good to one and all, believe it, live up to it and help others live up to it."

    "Everything is so fragile, there's so much conflict, so much pain, you keep waiting for the dust to settle and then you realize this is it. The dust is your life going on, if happy comes along that weird unbearable delight that's actual happy, I think you have to grab it while you can. You take what you can get cause its here, then its gone." Shadowcat (Astonishing X-Men)

Live Wyatt. Live for me. Wyatt, if you were ever my friend - if ya ever had even the slightest of feelin' for me, leave now. Leave now... Please.
    Wyatt Earp: Thanks for always being there, Doc.

    "If I am capable of grasping God objectively, I do not believe, but precisely because I cannot do this I must believe." Søren Kierkegaard

    " I do not follow anyone, nor do I want anyone to follow me. What I want is for each one of you to follow his own Self. I am only a lighthouse in the sea of existence, and I do not need clientele in order to subsist. Since I am against the slavery of souls, I do not want to enslave any soul, nor do I agree with executioners of ideals. Masters exists in abundance, and I am only one of many; thus, those who want to find the Masters will find them inside, within the profundities of their own inner consciousness."
    Samael Aun Weor

And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know I am the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon you." Ezekiel 25:17 (Pulp Fiction)

    "Kyrkogården, the graveyard where the berries taste like no other berries taste.
    Where buried strangers rest in soil
    where Death himself smirks at his victims.
    What do they want with death? Can´t they see his ugly face,
    can´t they hear his laughter and feel his cold hand on their own?
    Why do they seek death?
    None living should ever attempt his cold, harsh landscape.
    My teacher left me to my darkest lesson.
    That we´re alone, and that there is nothing but the
    cold dark wasteland of eternity." Anne Rice

    "Lament the Wild Wood"
    Shaggy beards hanging on hoary old heads;
    frazzled manes matted as all goes dead.
    Boughs dry as bone, death in a cascade,
    of mossy clinging tangle - the final charade.
    Live oaks festooned with Spanish moss;
    specters standing from ages long ago lost.
    Cathedrals of timber, shades of green –
    not to be found in a land parched and mean.
    A dirge for them on the northern wind;
    cast into flames for warmth at journeys end.
    The woodsman’s axe, sharp and falling;
    the whine of the chain saw plaintively calling.
    Shudders the spruce being split asunder;
    branches for hovels and houses needing lumber.
    New trees grow feebly to mark the land,
    where their fathers fell amongst the stand.
    Nothing arises to take their grand place;
    passing from all memory as time does erase.
    No more roots splitting stone and sinking deep;
    while above the earth the angels weep.
    Mighty trees from the earth to the heavens sprang;
    ages past when all the rivers sang.
    Now only forests of middling growth remain;
    none stretching skyward across the plain.
    The old and majestic matrons did wither;
    and older still, the patrons fell with a shiver.
    Springing from mud beyond time and memory;
    dying in the end as all things temporary.
    Darker than midnight, down in a cypress swamp;
    soundlessly sinking back into the damp.
    Standing skeleton, rot invading wood,
    branches stripped, once so proudly stood.
    Stumps left to ponder the open sky;
    while silently above the eagles fly.
    And down below the land is sick;
    the lingering death will not be quick.
    Primeval forests our fathers walked;
    long gone before our children talked.
    Great trees and beasts that are no more;
    we search in vain across the moor.
    "Dan Wells poem"

    Ike Clanton: What is that now? Twelve hands in a row? Holliday, son of a bitch, nobody's that lucky.
    Doc Holliday: Why Ike, whatever do you mean? Maybe poker's just not your game Ike. I know! Let's have a spelling contest!

    The omnipotence paradox is a family of semantic paradoxes which address two issues: Is an omnipotent entity logically possible? and What do we mean by 'omnipotence'?. The paradox states that if a being can perform any action, then it should be able to create a task it is unable to perform, and hence, it cannot perform all actions. Yet, on the other hand, if it cannot create a task it is unable to perform, then there exists something it cannot do.
    One version of the omnipotence paradox is the so-called paradox of the stone: "Could an omnipotent being create a stone so heavy that even that being could not lift it?" If so, then it seems that the being could cease to be omnipotent; if not, it seems that the being was not omnipotent to begin with.
    C. S. Lewis argues that when talking about omnipotence, referencing "a rock so heavy that God cannot lift it" is nonsense just as much as referencing "a square circle." So asking "Can God create a rock so heavy that even he cannot lift it?" is just as much nonsense as asking "Can God draw a square circle?" The logical contradiction here being God's simultaneous ability and disability in lifting the rock (the statement "God can lift this rock" must have a truth value of either true or false, it cannot possess both). Therefore the question (and therefore the perceived paradox) is meaningless. Nonsense does not suddenly acquire sense and meaning with the addition of the two words, "God can" before it.

    I began to see the world as a spurt of blank matter that chanced to make an emerald planet here and a dead star there, with random waste in between. The serenity of immense design was missing from my sleep, in form and proportion, the power that awes and thrills
    - Don DeLillo

    "The money powers prey upon the nation in times of peace and conspire against it in times of adversity. It is more despotic than a monarchy, more insolent than autocracy, (and) more selfish than bureaucracy. It denounces, as public enemies, all who question its methods or throw light upon its crimes. I have two great enemies, the Southern Army in front of me and the bankers in the rear. Of the two, the one at my rear is my greatest foe...corporations have been enthroned, and an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until the wealth is aggregated in the hands of a few, and the Republic is destroyed." Abraham Lincoln

    "You can spend minutes, hours, days, weeks, or even months over-analyzing a situation; trying to put the pieces together, justifying what could've would've happened... or you can just leave the pieces on the floor and move the eff on." Tupac Shakur
