[I Was Smart Enough To Know That I Shouldn't Tell Anyone The Reason I Needed That Icy Air. No Need To Spill The Secret That I Was The Genius Of All Geniuses, The Leonardo Da Vinci Of The 1980s. That Would Just Inspire Envy And Skepticism. So I'd Just Stare At The Closed Window And Stew. If Ten Minutes Went By Without My Lungs Getting Fresh Air, I Panicked. I Needed To Make Sure The Monoxide Hadn't Eaten My Cranium.]

Quotes About Seinfeld Birthdays

"provides American business with the only reliable domestic market in the world.Schools train individuals to respond as a mass. Boys and girls are drilled in being bored, frightened, envious, emotionally needy, generally incomplete. A successful mass production economy requires such a clientele. A small business, small farm economy like that of the Amish requires individual competence, thoughtfulness, compassion, and universal participation; our own requires a managed mass of leveled, spiritless, anxious, familyless, friendless, godless, and obedient people who believe the difference between Cheers and Seinfeld is a subject worth arguing about." - Author: John Taylor Gatto

Quotes About Luck And Lottery

"We are going to die, and that makes us the lucky ones. Most people are never going to die because they are never going to be born. The potential people who could have been here in my place but who will in fact never see the light of day outnumber the sand grains of Arabia. Certainly those unborn ghosts include greater poets than Keats, scientists greater than Newton. We know this because the set of possible people allowed by our DNA so massively exceeds the set of actual people. In the teeth of these stupefying odds it is you and I, in our ordinariness, that are here.We privileged few, who won the lottery of birth against all odds, how dare we whine at our inevitable return to that prior state from which the vast majority have never stirred?" - Author: Richard Dawkins
