[In Fact, This Is A World Without Future. In This World, Time Is A Line That Terminates At The Present, Both In Reality And In The Mind. In This World, No Person Can Imagine The Future. Imagining The Future Is No More Possible Than Seeing Colors Beyond Violet: The Senses Cannot Conceive What May Lie Past The Visible End Of The Spectrum. In A World Without Future, Each Parting Of Friends Is Death. In A World Without Future, Each Loneliness Is Final. In A World Without Future, Each Laugh Is The Last Laugh. In A World Without A Future, Beyond The Present Lies Nothingness, And People Cling To The Present As If Hanging From A Cliff.]

Quotes About Bowing Out

"I kept going deeper and deeper into this world of repetition...The sad thing is, people dont want to believe that the person theyre in love with is out of his mind, drinking and using, so if you give them even half an excuse, theyre going to want to believe it. A girl with no prior exposure to the disease had to be blissfully unaware of the nefarious tricks of the dope fiend. Thats how I was able to get high all summer and autumn and pretend like it wasnt happening. I was saying, Im sick. I was deteriorating physically and emotionally. Jaime was tolerant, and it did speak well of her character, because she was not the type to abandon ship during a crisis. She didnt consider backing off or bowing out, she was just there, which I cant say about everybody. I dont know if I could say it even about myself." - Author: Anthony Kiedis

Quotes About The New York Times

I was asked, for example, why I thought there were so many euphemisms for genitalia. Its not a serious question. Whatever the purpose of such a tone is, the effect is to make it appear that anyone who departs from orthodox political doctrine is in some ways laughable." - Author: Noam Chomsky

"She remembered one of her boyfriends asking, offhandedly, how many books she read in a year. "A few hundred," she said."How do you have the time?" he asked, gobsmacked.She narrowed her eyes and considered the array of potential answers in front of her. Because I dont spend hours flipping through cable complaining theres nothing on? Because my entire Sunday is not eaten up with pre-game, in-game, and post-game talking heads? Because I do not spend every night drinking overpriced beer and engaging in dick-swinging contests with the other financirati?
