… whip this out…
Grief can take care of itself, but to get the full value of a joy you must have somebody to divide it with.
Mark Twain (1835 - 1910)
I do not fear death. I had been dead for billions and billions of years before I was born, and had not suffered the slightest inconvenience from it.
Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.
I think that you are immune to the temptations of religion. If you ate not, I cannot help you, any more than I could keep you from acquiring a drug habit. A religion is sometimes a source of happiness, and I will not deprive anyone of happiness. But it is a comfort appropriate for the weak, not for the strong — and you are strong. The great trouble with religion - any religion - is that a religionist, having accepted certain propositions by faith, cannot thereafter judge those propositions by evidence. One may bask at the warm fire of faith or choose to live in the bleak uncertainty of reason — but one cannot have both.
Boss, Friday p. 261
He felt his body divide itself into a hotness and a coldness, a softness and a hardness, a trembling and a not trembling, the two halves grinding one upon the other.
Fahrenheit 451, Ray Bradbury
