Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

a thread for your favorite quotes

such as one of mine,
If you want to really hurt your parents, and you don't have the nerve to be gay, the least you can do is go into the arts. I'm not kidding. The arts are not a way to make a living. They are a very human way of making life more bearable. Practicing an art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow, for heaven's sake. Sing in the shower. Dance to the radio. Tell stories. Write a poem to a friend, even a lousy poem. Do it as well as you possibly can. You will get an enormous reward. You will have created something.

now it's your turn!

    what do you say, for instance, about a generation who has been taught that rain is poison and sex is death? if making love might be fatal and if a cool summer breeze can turn a crystal blue lake into a puddle of black poison scum right in front of your eyes, there is not much left except tv and relentless masturbation.

    it's a strange world. some people get rich and others eat shit and die.

    See sig:

    Neither the whole of truth nor the whole of good is revealed to any single observer, although each observer gains a partial superiority of insight from the peculiar position in which he stands. It is enough to ask of each of us that he should be faithful to his own opportunities and make the most of his own blessings, without presuming to regulate the rest of the vast field.

    You accuse me of being a madman. What right have you to judge what is sane and what is not?
    I have fought with the shadows on the edge of your vision.
    I have seen the faces that laugh at you in your nightmares.
    I have smelt the foetid breath that issues from the mouth of hell itself.
    I have heard the silent voices that make your spine tingle with dread.
    I have entered the realms between worlds where there is no time or place.
    I have clashed with creatures the sight of which would sear your soul to the core.
    I have bested horrors that chill with a gaze and tempt unreasoning terror.
    I have faced death eye to eye and blade to blade.
    I have stared into the eyes of insanity and met their all-consuming stare.
    I have done all of this for you, for your protection, and the guarantee of a future for mankind.
    And yet you accuse me of being a madman, you who have never had your sanity tested so sorely.
    What right have you to call me a heretic and a blasphemer, who have not heard the whisper of dark gods in your ear?
    You are weak. Vulnerable. Human in your frailty. I am strong and yet still you judge me.
    And yet you still judge me for my sins, you who art most sinful to the heart?
    Only the insane have strength enough to prosper; only those that prosper truly judge what is sane.

    It's awfully easy to lie when you know that you're trusted implicitly. So very easy, and so very degrading.

    And that's how she got to the same party as me. Oh shit. I skipped something. Damn it. This whole robot bit. I made a big deal, then I like totally forgot. Fuck, this is bad narrating. Like my dad telling a joke. "Oh, wait back up. I forgot to tell you the cowboy rode a blue horse." Fuck. Anyway, I don't know if you want to see it now, but here's the fucking robot stuff for your viewing pleasure. Can I say "fuck" more?

    You remember the one I said that got away, yeah well that one was her. It all came flooding back how I was the one she confided in, the one she trusted, meanwhile she was doing every other guy in school. It was the first time I felt it, how pitying someone and wanting to fuck them can get all tangled up in your head... overwhelming sadness while having a rodney. Is that sick? Hm yeah, I think that's sick...

    A man who has blown all his options can't afford the luxury of changing his ways. He has to capitalize on whatever he has left, and he can't afford to admit — no matter how often he's reminded of it — that every day of his life takes him farther and farther down a blind alley... Very few toads in this world are Prince Charmings in disguise. Most are simply toads... and they are going to stay that way... Toads don't make laws or change any basic structures, but one or two rooty insights can work powerful changes in the way they get through life. A toad who believes he got a raw deal before he even knew who was dealing will usually be sympathetic to the mean, vindictive ignorance that colors the Hell's Angels' view of humanity. There is not much mental distance between a feeling of having been screwed and the ethic of total retaliation, or at least the random revenge that comes with outraging the public decency.
