This is what life does for you in the end; it arranges a fight you can't win.

Hilary Mantel

Happiness is amazing. It's so amazing it doesn't matter if it's yours or not.

Ricky Gervais
After Life

What is grief if not love persevering?


How much truth is contained in something can be best determined by making it thoroughly laughable and then watching to see how much joking around it can take. For truth is a matter that can withstand mockery, that is freshened by any ironic gesture directed at it. Whatever cannot withstand satire is false.

Peter Sloterdijk
Critique of Cynical Reason

But if we stop, if we accept the person we are when we fall, the journey ends. That failure becomes our destination. To love the journey is to accept no such end. I have found, through painful experience, that the most important step a person can take is always the next one.

Dalinar Kholin

When another person makes you suffer, it is because he suffers deeply within himself, and his suffering is spilling over. He does not need punishment; he needs help. That's the message he is sending.

Thich Nhat Hanh

We're just here to be memories for our kids. Once you're a parent, you're the ghost of your children's future.


When teenagers complain that they want to be treated like human beings, it's usually becacuse they are being treated like human beings.


It is often easier to fight for one’s principles than it is to live up to them.

Adlai E. Steveson

It's not a great idea to bring a sausage dog in here. In here, he's more sausage than dog.

The Platform

We're all gonna die, so we should have a laugh. Because if you can laugh in the face of adversity, you're bullet-proof. If you think of something funny, you've got to say it. It might go well, it might go badly. But you've gotta say it.

Ricky Gervais

Dracula: I love science. Science is the future, Agatha.
Agatha: And yet you still fear the cross?
Dracula: 'Course I do. Everyone does, that's the problem. It's not a symbol of virtue and kindness. It's a mark of horror and oppression. Your idiot Church has terrorized the peasant population for centuries, and I have been imbibing the blood of those same persons for so long, I have absorbed their fear of the cross. My God. I can't wait to eat some atheists.


I saw you try and stop the sunset on your own
I'll forever want your ancient silver gravity
I can still taste the heat of the sun on her skin in my arms

Guy Garvey, Elbow
Kindling (Fickle Flame)

Man is quite insane. He wouldn't know how to create a maggot, and he creates gods by the dozen.

Michel de Montaigne

One of the comforts of having children is knowing one's youth has not fled, but merely been passed down to a new generation. They say when a parent dies, a child feels his own mortality. But when a child dies, it's immortality that a parent loses.

Constance Langdon
American Horror Story: Murder House

Losing people is a part of life, but that doesn't mean you stop letting them in.

Lego Batman
The Lego Batman Movie

You can't keep blaming yourself. Just blame yourself once and move on.

Homer Simpson
A Millhouse Divided

The total amount of suffering per year in the natural world is beyond all decent contemplation. During the minute that it takes me to compose this sentence, thousands of animals are being eaten alive, many others are running for their lives, whimpering with fear, others are slowly being devoured from within by rasping parasites, thousands of all kinds are dying of starvation, thirst, and disease. It must be so. If there ever is a time of plenty, this very fact will automatically lead to an increase in the population until the natural state of starvation and misery is restored. In a universe of electrons and selfish genes, blind physical forces and genetic replication, some people are going to get hurt, other people are going to get lucky, and you won't find any rhyme or reason in it, nor any justice. The universe that we observe has precisely the properties we should expect if there is, at bottom, no design, no purpose, no evil, no good, nothing but pitiless indifference.

Richard Dawkins

As it is, we are merely bolting our lives—gulping down undigested experiences as fast as we can stuff them in—because awareness of our own existence is so superficial and so narrow that nothing seems to us more boring than simple being. If I ask you what you did, saw, heard, smelled, touched and tasted yesterday, I am likely to get nothing more than the thin, sketchy outline of the few things that you noticed, and of those only what you thought worth remembering. Is it surprising that an existence so experienced seems so empty and bare that its hunger for an infinite future is insatiable? But suppose you could answer, “It would take me forever to tell you, and I am much too interested in what’s happening now.” How is it possible that a being with such sensitive jewels as the eyes, such enchanted musical instruments as the ears, and such a fabulous arabesque of nerves as the brain can experience itself as anything less than a god? And, when you consider that this incalculably subtle organism is inseparable from the still more marvelous patterns of its environment—from the minutest electrical designs to the whole company of the galaxies—how is it conceivable that this incarnation of all eternity can be bored with being?

Alan Watts
The Book: On the Taboo Against Knowing Who You Are

It is not a lack of love, but a lack of friendship that makes unhappy marriages.

Friedrich Nietzsche
