1. "...we are taught to put fun and serious pursuits on a continuum as opposed extremes, when this dichotomy is entirely false, made even worse when we act as though we can instantly exchange one for the other...Exerting yourself at a task that is serious and rewarding can still be quite fun, but doing something fun because you have a neurotic need to pack your life full of un is pretty much a guarantee that any long-term benefits you derive will be entirely happenstance."

They know it in the abstract, but they don't know it. I'd like them to know it, because I think it gives you compassion."
Author: Charlie Kaufman

This beautiful world?Isn't this my form?These hands, these eyes, this touch?Am I to believe I have violated a rule,just by being born?Who claims this right to judge,and on what authority do you stand?The truth screams out from my cells.I am not the imagination of a God,I am a voice in the earth,I am that which you deny!The earth is my home and the stars my destiny.I will touch the planets throughthe hands of my children. . . not the will of your ghost!I am a voice in the evolutionary continuumand I claim the right to be alive,without your story.For I Am Human, I Am Proud,and I AM . . . PRIMATE!"

I know that from my own story, and from the evidence of every child ever born — they all want to hear and to tell stories, to sing, to make music, to act out little dramas, to paint pictures, to make sculptures. This is born in and we breed it out. And then, when we have bred it out, we say that art is elitist, and at the same time we either fetishize art — the high prices, the jargon, the inaccessibility — or we ignore it. The truth is, artist or not, we are all born on the creative continuum, and that is a heritage and a birthright of all of our lives."
Author: Jeanette Winterson

To surmount the past, you must know the past."
Author: John Logan

Or maybe it wouldn't.I should've watched more Star Trek as a kid."

Oricât ne-am stradui, prin urmare, nu putem iesi din dilema voicaniana: metafizica la un capat al spectrului si o parte gingasa a anatomiei feminine la cealalta. Vai, ma numar printre cei care sunt mai aproape de metafizica pe acest continuum al feminitatii. Despre cele câteva femei (dar ce femei!) care mi-au onorat mintea, viata si patul am scris de zeci de ori. Voluta a corpului lor si rictus al gurii lor si cârliont al capriciilor lor n-au ramas neconsemnate în pagini botite si fierbinti asemenea cearsafurilor unui barbat singur."
Author: Mircea Cărtărescu

Author: Richard Harmon
36. "We've forgotten much. How to struggle, how to rise to dizzy heights and sink to unparalleled depths. We no longer aspire to anything. Even the finer shades of despair are lost to us.

The measuring stick is short and sweet. The full gamut of life is a brief, shadowy continuum that runs from gray to more gray. The rainbow is bleached. We hardly know how to doubt anymore. ("The Thing")"

"Dwarfs were not a naturally religious species, but in a world where pit props could crack without warning and pockets of fire damp could suddenly explode they'd seen the need for gods as the sort of supernatural equivalent of a hard hat. Besides, when you hit your thumb with an eight-pound hammer it's nice to be able to blaspheme. It takes a very special and strong-minded kind of atheist to jump up and down with their hand clasped under their other armpit and shout, "Oh, random-fluctuations-in-the-space-time-continuum!" or "Aaargh, primitive-and-outmoded-concept on a crutch!"
Author: Terry Pratchett
