  1. “The scripture worshippers put the writings ahead of God. Instead of interpreting God’s actions in nature, for example, they interpret nature in the light of the Scripture. Nature says the rock is billions of years old, but the book says different, so even though men wrote the book, and God made the rock and God gave us minds that have found ways to tell how old it is, we still choose to believe the Scripture.”

    Sheri S. Tepper

  2. “You’re not a bad guy, there’s no such thing as a ‘bad guy’ or a ‘good guy’. We’re all just ‘guys’ and we go around doing good stuff sometimes, and bad stuff sometimes. All we can do is try to do less bad stuff and more good stuff. You’ll never be good, because you can never be bad.”
    – Diane Nguyen from *Bojack Horseman*

  3. People are stupid; given proper motivation, almost anyone will believe almost anything. Because people are stupid, they will believe a lie because they want to believe it’s true, or because they are afraid it might be true. People’s heads are full of knowledge, facts, and beliefs, and most of it is false, yet they think it all true. People are stupid; they can only rarely tell the difference between a lie and the truth, and yet they are confident they can, and so are all the easier to fool.

  4. You are not your job, you’re not how much money you have in the bank. You are not the car you drive. You’re not the contents of your wallet. You are not your fucking khakis. You are all singing, all dancing crap of the world.

  5. Why does Leslie Knope get as many favors as she wants? “Because she’s the kind of person who uses favors to help other people.” -Parks and Rec

    Also, “Where should I look from so that I can see the same things as you?” from Fruits Basket. Not exactly profound, but it’s damn poetic.

  6. ” it is the ethical question all devotees of science must face. We research in the service of the furtherance of knowledge, but we cannot ignore the uses to which our findings are put in the real world”

  7. The key is to put it all in your groin and your back. Take your legs totally out of the equation. Lift with your lower back in a jerking, twisting motion.
