Quotes About Good Egotism

"Few beings have ever been so impregnated, pierced to the core, by the conviction of the absolute futility of human aspiration. The universe is nothing but a furtive arrangement of elementary particles. A figure in transition toward chaos. That is what will finally prevail. The human race will disappear. Other races in turn will appear and disappear. The skies will be glacial and empty, traversed by the feeble light of half-dead stars. These too will disappear. Everything will disappear. And human actions are as free and as stripped of meaning as the unfettered movements of the elementary particles. Good, evil, morality, sentiments? Pure ‘Victorian fictions. All that exists is egotism. Cold, intact, and radiant." - Author: Michel Houellebecq

She said I have the neurological condition synesthesia out the ass, with all kinds of cross regions of my brain talking to each other.

Quotes About Tragedy And Triumph

His arms were smoking." - Author: Rick Riordan
