"Talent is more erotic when it's wasted" Everybody's a mad scientist, and life is their lab. We're all trying to experiment to find a way to live, to solve problems, to fend off madness and chaos. - David Cronenberg “There's no excuse to be bored. Sad, yes. Angry, yes. Depressed, yes. Crazy, yes. But there's no excuse for boredom, ever.” viggo mortensen "See, you can't rewrite, 'cause to rewrite is to deceive and lie, and you betray your own thoughts. To rethink the flow and the rhythm, the tumbling out of the words, is a betrayal, and it's a sin, Martin, it's a sin." "...my compulsive necessity to rewrite every single word at least 100 times. Guilt is the key, not sin. Guilt re not writing the best that I can. Guilt re not considering everything from every possible angle. Balancing everything." "Well, how big of an audience do you need?" There comes a point where if you try to please too big an audience, you lose what was interesting about what you're doing. You have to achieve a balance." "Do you have anything to declare? - Yes, I'm a mess" "Find out something that's bad and then make it worse. Does that make any sense?" "Steel isn't strong... flesh is stronger! What is steel compared to the hand that wields it?" "Did you know I'm utterly insane?" "Exterminate all rational thought. That is the conclusion I have come to." "Nothing makes one so vain as being told one is a sinner!" "The greatest mistake you can make in life is to be continually fearing you will make one." "Life is a process of becoming, a combination of states we have to go through. Where people fail is that they wish to elect a state and remain in it. This is a kind of death." "We must embrace pain and burn it as fuel for our journey." If you don't know what you want, you end up with a lot you don't. Chuck Palahniuk "The one boy that's really liked me and he's a demon robot. Hey, did you forget? The one boy I've had the hots for here turned out to be a vampire. And the teacher I had a crush on? Giant praying mantis. Let's face it. None of us are ever gonna have a happy, normal relationship. We're doomed. - Yeah." “Spiteful words can hurt your feelings but silence breaks your heart.” "The true hypocrite is the one who ceases to perceive his deception, the one who lies with sincerity" "holding onto anger is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die" "The greatest happiness is to know the source of unhappiness." ''The hardest part is when you can't remember the beginning, or see the end.''
