    ― Oscar Wilde

    Ok one more, from a different source

    "Separated lovers deceive absence by a thousand chimerical things which still have their reality. They are prevented from seeing each other, they cannot write to each other; they find a multitude of mysterious means of correspondence. They commission the song of the birds, the perfume of flowers, the laughter of children, the light of the sun, the sighs of the wind, the beams of the stars, the whole creation. And why not? All the works of God were made to serve love. Love is powerful enough to charge all nature with its messages."
    - Marius's love letter to Cosette in Les Miserables.
    “Can a man of perception respect himself at all?”
    ― Fyodor Dostoyevsky

    And so, the stranger basks in the adulation of his new friends... Sinking deeper into the guacamole of his own deception.
    - One of the mariachi owls, from "Rango"

    Harry, I'm gonna let you in on a little secret. Every day, once a day, give yourself a present. Don't plan it, don't wait for it, just...let it happen. Could be a new shirt at the men's store, a catnap in your office chair, or two cups of good, hot, black coffee.
    - Special Agent Cooper, from "Twin Peaks"

    America isn't easy. America is advanced citizenship. You gotta want it bad, 'cause it's gonna put up a fight. It's gonna say "You want free speech? Let's see you acknowledge a man whose words make your blood boil, who's standing center stage and advocating at the top of his lungs that which you would spend a lifetime opposing at the top of yours."
    - President Andy Shepherd, from "The American President"

    When we find ourselves believing that killing a man makes us more of a man but loving a man makes us less of a man, it’s probably time to re-examine our criteria for manhood.
    - Jay Smooth
    and it's nice enough to

    To create and to annihilate material substance, cause it to aggregate in forms according to his desire, would be the supreme manifestation of the power of man's mind, his most complete triumph over the physical world, his crowning achievement, which would place him beside his Creator, make him fulfill his Ultimate Destiny.
    Nikola Tesla

    In speaking of the move from subjective to objective characterization, I wish to remain noncommittal about the existence of an end point, the completely objective intrinsic nature of the thing, which one might or might not be able to reach. It may be more accurate to think of objectivity as a direction in which the understanding can travel.
    -Thomas Nagel

    "It could have been worse, it could have been better....the important and most endlessly fascinating point however, is that it could in the first place"
    "An upsidedown wire heart
    Being sucked into a periscope
    Still the mind is dull
    Like you need another excuse"


    … a theory is primarily a form of insight, i.e. a way of looking
    at the world, and not a form of knowledge of how the world is….
    .. all our different ways of thinking are to be considered as
    different ways of looking at the one reality, each with some
    domain in which it is clear and adequate….
    - David Bohm
