"There is a time when the operation of the machine becomes so odious, makes you so sick at heart, that you can't take part, you can't even passively take part, and you've got to put your bodies upon the gears and upon the wheels, upon the levers, upon all the apparatus, and you've got to make it stop! And you've got to indicate to the people who run it, to the people who own it, that unless you're free, the machine will be prevented from working at all!"
"People always call it luck when you've acted more sensibly than they have."
"Because it is my name! Because I cannot have another in my life! Because I lie and sign myself to lies! Because I am not worth the dust on the feet of those that hang. How may I live without my name? You have taken my soul; leave me my name!
-John Proctor of Arthur Miller's The Crucible
"Whenever I step outside, somebody claims to see the light
It seems to me that all of us have lost our patience.
Because everyone thinks they're right, and nobody thinks that there just might
Be more than one way to our final destination."
-Hoobastank "Same Direction"
"You fail to recognize that it matters not what someone is born, but what they grow to be!"
-Dumbledore of JK Rowling's Harry Potter
"And here we have the common, yet enigmatic specimen Randomus retardicus. It’s really quite a treat when we can observe it in its natural habitat, the intellectually-barren wastelands of Fictionpress’ humor section."
-Excerpt of "Humor: How to Make it Suck Less" by Radyn
So, the next time someone tells you they're going to kick your ass, simply respond:
"I think not, bitch. I'll go level five paladin on your ass with a full house and Mr. Goodwrench. You want
a little glitter?"
After saying this, you should have a moment to run like hell.
-Excerpt of Firechainsaw Mcbadass' "Random Mental Thoughts from my Head"
"Always close the closet door. In the blackness of that square space, behind the orange sweater your mother gave you, there lurks the purest evil known to mankind. Or so we believed in our childhoods, anyway. Stories that seem laughable to us now – boogeymen beneath the bed, monsters in the closet, bunnies that lay eggs and paint them silly colors – were of utmost importance and significance to us in our youth. When we outgrow such things, we're called grown ups, and being grown up isn't half as much fun."
-Excerpt from "Word of Mouth" by Sullen Siren
