but the one who needs the least..."

Is there a difference between an aphorism and a quotation? Cuz if there isn't, does that mean I'm Oscar Wilde? They are guides. They are teachers. They are like Yoda, only smaller and on strings. --Meenik on poi

sometimes the best response to reality is to go insane

imagination is the one weapon in the war against reality

sanity calms, but madness is more interesting

The reward for hard work tends to be more work - dig the best ditches and they give you a bigger shovel.

What's with all this political correctness? I ain't scared to call a spade a shovel... Give me a lever long enough and a place to stand and I can beat the world into submission.

It is ridiculous to claim that video games influence children. If Pacman had affected kids born in the eighties, they'd all be running around in dark rooms, munching pills and listening to monotonous electronic music.
