My Homebrew

My friend just shared this: "Remember that time Gandalf convinced the whole party to flee so that he could take out the Balrog and not have to share any of the XP? Shows up the next session with fancy new robes and everything. What a jerk."

Ohhh...you do not want to get me started. I can quote at you for hours if pressed...

evil grin

Let's start with
Quote from: Miles Naismith Vorkosigan
The one thing you can't trade for your heart's desire...is your heart.

Quote from: Joss Whedon
People love a happy ending. So every episode, I will explain once again that I don't like people. And then Mal will shoot someone. Someone we like. And their puppy.

Quote from: Charlie Brown
Nothing takes the taste out of peanut butter quite like unrequited love.

Quote from: Alfred Lord Tennyson
...that which we are, we are;
One equal temper of heroic hearts
Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.

Quote from: Lois McMaster Bujold
And...grant us, in our direst need, the smallest gifts:
the nail of the horseshoe,
the pin of the axle,
the feather at the pivot point,
the pebble at the mountain's peak,
the kiss in despair,
the one right word.
In darkness,
understanding.

Quote from: G'Quon
There is a greater darkness than the one we fight-- it is the darkness of the soul that has lost its way.  The war we fight is not against powers and prinicipalities--it is against chaos and despair.  Greater than the death of flesh is the death of hope -- the death of dreams -- against this peril we can never surrender.

That should do for a beginning...

Quote from: Aristotle
"It is unbecoming for young men to utter maxims."

Quote from: Friedrich Nietzsche, Thus Spake Zarathustra
"I tell you: one must still have chaos within oneself, to give birth to a dancing star."

Quote from: Friedrich Nietzsche, Thus Spake Zarathustra
"Something unknown is around me and looks thoughtful. What? Are you still alive, Zarathustra? / 'Why? What for? By what? Whither? Where? How? Is it not folly still to be alive?"

Quote from: Friedrich Nietzsche, Twilight of the Idols
"The true world—we have abolished. What has remained? The apparent one perhaps? But no! With the true world we have also abolished the apparent one."

Quote from: Albert Camus, the Myth of Sisyphus
"Men, too, secrete the inhuman. At certain moments of lucidity, the mechanical aspect of their gestures, their meaningless pantomime makes silly everything that surrounds them. A man is talking on the telephone behind a glass partition; you cannot hear him, but you see his incomprehensible dumb show; you wonder why he is alive. This discomfort in the face of man’s own inhumanity … is also the absurd. Likewise the stranger who at certain seconds comes to meet us in a mirror, the familiar and yet alarming brother we encounter in our own photographs is also the absurd."

Quote from: Aristophanes, Plato's Symposium
"Wherefore let us exhort all men to piety, that we may avoid evil and obtain the good, of which Love is to us the lord and minister; and let no one oppose him — he is the enemy of the gods who opposes him. For if we are friends of the god and at peace with him, we shall find our own true loves, which rarely happens in this world at present."

Quote from: Goethe, Faust
Woe! Woe!
Thou hast her destroyed
The beautiful world,
By a mighty fist;
She tottered, she hurled!
A half-god beat her to nothing!

We bring
The ruins over the void and,
Dirges sing
Over the belost beautiful
More mightily
Earthen children
More splendidly
Build her again,
In your bosoms build her strong!

New life-stories
Commence
With fair sense,
And new song,
To sound thereon!

Quote from: Marcel Duchamp
"My idea was to choose an object that wouldn't attract me, either by its beauty or by its ugliness. To find a point of indifference in my looking at it, you see."

Quote from: George Elliot, Middlemarch
"The element of tragedy which lies in the very fact of frequency, has not yet wrought itself into the coarse emotion of mankind; and perhaps our frames could hardly bear much of it. If we had a keen vision and feeling of all ordinary human life, it would be like hearing the grass grow and the squirrel’s heart beat, and we should die of that roar which lies on the other side of silence."

Quote from: Puella Magi Madoka Magica
"It kind of feels like we’re in a different country now. School, Hitomi-chan — nothing’s changed since yesterday. But it feels like I’m surrounded by strangers."

Quote from: Puella Magi Madoka Magica
"I know how much you all care about me. I know just how much I have to value my own life. That's why you're wrong. Everyone's important to me. I have to protect every single one of them. That's why I can't be here. That's why I have to go."

Quote from: Puella Magi Madoka Magica
"If you told me it was wrong to harbor hope, I would tell you that it wasn't wrong. I'd say it as many times as necessary. I'd keep saying it forever."

If I tell you I'm good, you would probably think I'm boasting. If I tell you I'm no good, you know I'm lying.
- Bruce Lee...allegedly.

Quote
Enlightenment and confusion will both be yours this week, when a tree falls in the woods only to make the sound of one hand clapping
- The Onion, horoscope for Aries on August 21st, 2007

Quote
Hate. Let me tell you how much I've come to hate you since I began to live. There are 387.44 million miles of printed circuits in wafer thin layers that fill my complex. If the word 'hate' was engraved on each nanoangstrom of those hundreds of miles it would not equal one one-billionth of the hate I feel for humans at this micro-instant. For you. Hate. Hate.

You win nothing, because all of those are wrong.
