“Have you ever seen a human heart? It looks like a fist, wrapped in blood!”

—   Larry, Closer (2004)

“Men lies about little,
Some of them cries about little,
Some of them dies about little,
Everything fight about little spoonful.
It could be a spoonful of coffee,
Could be a spoonful of tea,
But a little spoon of your precious love,
Good enough for me.”

—   Howlin’ Wolf, Spoonful

“Al: “Oh my fucking head!”
Dan: “All that organizing business?”
Al: “Nah, 25 cups of coffee and too much circulating in the fresh air.””

“For real, I’m livin’ life with some burdensome niggers.”

“A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.”

—   Robert A. Heinlein, Time Enough for Love

“Home is where the needle marks tried to heal my broken heart.”

“Everyone’s a junkie to me now. All of them want something. They don’t care who they fuck over to get their junk. There’s a brutal beauty to that. The singleness of mind. The focus. A straight line. A one-way street. Say a man has a lover who’s a junkie. On the outside he’s calm, but on the inside he burns, knowing that he’s second to the junk. What a drag. They’re all junkies. The world is a junkie. I’m a junkie. Life is my junk. I’m the shapeless man.”

“Hydras don’t give a fuck about your puny Conjure Flame, they’ll walk right through that shit. And if they get to spend one second at melee range, you’re toast. No, I don’t care that you just want to pour one little Sticky Flame on them. You will be dead.”

“If you are unsure of how to handle a Hydra, run away. Do not zap it with a wand of random effects. You WILL haste it.”
