[....hope Is 'that Virtue By Which We Take Responsibility For The Future.' ...hope Is Our Positive Orientation Toward The Future, A Future In Which We Simultaneously Recognize Difficulty, Responsibility, And Delight. Hope Is Not Relative To The Present Situation, Nor Is It Dependent Upon A Specific Outcome... Hope Is Not An Antidote To Despair, Or A Sidestepping Of Difficulty, But A Companion To All These Things.]

Quotes About Depersonalization

"I had all the characteristics of a human being-- flesh, blood, skin, hair-- but my depersonalization was so intense, had gone so deep, that the normal ability to feel compassion had been eradicated, the victim of a slow, purposeful erasure. I was simply imitating reality, a rough resemblance of a human being, with only a dim corner of my mind functioning. Something horrible was happening and yet I couldnt figure out why-- I couldnt put my finger on it. The only thing that calmed me was the satisfying sound of ice being dropped into a glass of J&B." - Author: Bret Easton Ellis

Quotes About Percentages

"He talked about luck and fate and numbers coming up, yet he never ventured a nickel at the casinos because he knew the house had all the percentages. And beneath his pessimism, his bleak conviction that all the machinery was rigged against him, at the bottom of his soul was a faith that he was going to outwit it, that by carefully watching the signs he was going to know when to dodge and be spared. It was fatalism with a loophole, and all you had to do to make it work was never miss a sign. Survival by coordination, as it were. The race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, but to those who can see it coming and jump aside. Like a frog evading a shillelagh in a midnight marsh." - Author: Hunter S. Thompson
