BiographyYou're a horrible person. That's what it says. We weren't even testing for that.
Don't worry about people stealing your ideas; if your ideas are any good, you'll have to shove them down people's throats.
- Howard H. Aiken
There are two types of people in the world: those that divide people into two types, and those that don't.
As the Americans learned so painfully in Earth's final century, free flow of information is the only safeguard against tyranny. The once-chained people whose leaders at last lose their grip on information flow will soon burst with freedom and vitality, but the free nation gradually constricting its grip on public discourse has begun its rapid slide into despotism. Beware of he who would deny you access to information, for in his heart he dreams himself your master.
- Alpha Centauri
Dissent is the highest form of patriotism.
- Howard Zinn
I saw my entire life flash before my eyes...and guess what...I have four kids...and a hover car and a hover house. And my wife is a runner, and it shows. And I'm happy, and I'm rich...and I never die. That doesn't sound like much but it's enough for me.
- The Office
Everything for everyone, and nothing for ourselves.
America touts itself as the land of the free, but the number one freedom that you and I have is the freedom to enter into a subservient role in the workplace. Once you exercise this freedom you've lost all control over what you do, what is produced, and how it is produced. And in the end, the product doesn't belong to you. The only way you can avoid bosses and jobs is if you don't care about making a living. Which leads to the second freedom: the freedom to starve.
- Tom Morello
The pain, so unexpected and undeserved had for some reason cleared away the cobwebs. I realized I didn't hate the cabinet door, I hated my life... My house, my family, my backyard, my power mower. Nothing would ever change; nothing new could ever be expected. It had to end, and it did. Now in the dark world where I dwell, ugly things, and surprising things, and sometimes little wondrous things, spill out at me constantly, and I can count on nothing.
- A Scanner Darkly
The pen is mightier than the sword, if you shoot that pen out of a gun.
- Stephen Colbert
Then alone do we know God truly, when we believe that He is far above all that man can possibly think of God.
- Saint Thomas Aquinas
It is almost always more powerful to have something be an innate experience, to feel it from your core rather than as an ideology.
- Brian Chase
When you get to be a certain age, everything that is cool seems to be a lot of nonsensical, idiotic jibberish. The music that blares from the pimp rides makes no sense; it all sounds like a man with severe autism halfheartedly explaining human sexuality to a parrot, while in the background a dangerously unqualified Caribbean contractor rhythmically installs an automatic garage door opener. Bollocks. Fortunately Cowboy-Poets are shielded from the slow decay of rad. We make the rad, we plant the seeds of fresh. Terrible is not the new awesome, not at all. Wack it the new dope.
- Jeffrey Rowland
I'm a thoughtocoster, a conundrummer in a band called Life Puzzler.
- Xavier: Renegade Angel
Human beings are perhaps never more dangerous than when they are convinced beyond a doubt that they are right. Patience. Penance.
Beware of all enterprises that require a new set of clothes.
- Henry David Thoreau
I only want enlightenment and to convey love. Somehow, through this process, there are often a series of conflagrations and excitement.
- Russell Brand
I wish every child had a mother / That's what I wish / I wish we could love one another / If I had one wish / And I wish all the nations belonged to one world / And I wish all religion was love.
- Sarah Silverman
Human salvation lies in the hands of the creatively maladjusted.
- Martin Luther King Jr.
Confusion is always the most honest response.
- Marty Indik
Transforming bloodshed into beauty and raising the phoenix of forbidden expression - The real war is in us.
Advertising may be described as the science of arresting the human intelligence long enough to get money from it.
- Stephen B. Leacock
Truly fertile Music, the only kind that will move us, that we shall truly appreciate, will be a Music conducive to Dream, which banishes all reason and analysis. One must not wish first to understand and then to feel. Art does not tolerate Reason.
- Albert Camus (1913-1960), French Philosopher in "Essay on Music", 1932
When you think of the long and gloomy history of man, you will find more hideous crimes have been committed in the name of obedience than have ever been committed in the name of rebellion.
- CP Snow
Why do writers write? Because it isn't there.
- Thomas Berger
The intelligent man finds almost everything ridiculous, the sensible man hardly anything.
- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
The writer is odd from day one and in the course of pursuing this maddening profession becomes distinctly odder... It is not unusual for a successful writer -- your favourite, the one you think of as full of sunshine, wisdom and laughter -- to spend great portions of his or her life in a state of fury, hideously disappointed, or even raving mad.
- Paul Theroux
Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood. Now is the time to understand more, so that we may fear less.
- Marie Curie
Now, Love is a god impossible to catch. For he accepts instructions from nobody and disregards, when he pleases, human wisdom, which is for the gods as that of apes is for men. And Love being everywhere, he assumes different forms. But those who seek to hurt and force others through persecution do worse, and therefore make themselves inferior to those, who accepting the command of Love as they understand it and feel it, live happily themselves in common agreement, neither hurting nor forcing anyone.
It's called the American Dream because you have to be asleep to believe it.
- George Carlin
Reality is a crutch for people who can't cope with drugs.
- Lily Tomlin
There's so much comedy on television. Does that cause comedy in the streets?
- Dick Cavett
People want economy and they will pay any price to get it.
- Lee Iacocca
All progress is based upon a universal innate desire on the part of every organism to live beyond its income.
- Samuel Butler
InterestsI write for Neoseeker, Rage3D, and a few other outlets.
I'm a PC junkie, with a love for shooters and RPGs especially (in the former department, Battlefield, in the latter, pretty much anything European e.g. Risen) -- if you're looking for coverage on that stuff, I'm probably behind it.
