Maddox Makes Me Laugh, Even Though He is Most Likely a Balding Pedophile Writing from His Mother's Basement

From the thebestpageintheuniverse.net:

When I see people wearing Crocs, I know immediately that we have nothing in common, and that we could never be friends or have any meaningful kind of relationship. They come in every color imaginable yet look bad with every other article of clothing ever created. The only thing that goes with Crocs is social ostracism.

Wuthering Heights

One of the many, many quotes that I consider to be the best ever and capture something about my soul (there are so many...they all bounce around in my head constantly, and both drive me crazy and keep me sane).

Also, before I share the awesomeness, I need to brag and say that I am going to double major in Philosophy and English Literature, and minor in Environmental Studies. Which means I'm going to have a ton of work every semester. But at least I'm working towards a goal! Yay!

Ok here you go:

If all else perished, and he remained, I should still continue to be. And if all else remained, and he were annihilated, the universe would turn to a mighty stranger -- I should not seem a part of it. My love for Linton is like the foliage in the woods; time will change it, I'm well aware, as winter changes the trees. My love for Heathcliff resembles the eternal rocks beneath -- a source of little visible delight, but necessary. Nelly, I am Heathcliff! He's always, always in my mind -- not as a pleasure, any more than I am always a pleasure to myself, but as my own being.

Fun stuff I found:

Definition of sapiosexuality :.



1. (n.) A behavior of becoming attracted to or aroused by intelligence and its use.

Origins: From the Latin root sapien, wise or intelligent, and Latin sexualis, relating to the sexes.

Example: Me? I don't care too much about the looks. I want an incisive, inquisitive, insightful, irreverent mind. I want someone for whom philosophical discussion is foreplay. I want someone who sometimes makes me go ouch due to their wit and evil sense of humor. I want someone that I can reach out and touch randomly. I want someone I can cuddle with. I decided this all means that I am sapiosexual.

Build a man a fire, and he'll be warm for a day. Set a man on fire, and he'll be warm for the rest of his life.
Terry Pratchett

Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark. In the hopeless swamps of the not quite, the not yet, and the not at all, do not let the hero in your soul perish and leave only frustration for the life you deserved, but never have been able to reach. The world you desire can be won, it exists, it is real, it is possible, it is yours. --Ayn Rand (1905 - 1982), Atlas Shrugged

Disgrace, J.M. Coetzee

I'm reading this novel for my Comparative Literature course, entitled "Colonial and Postcolonial Lit". I'm only to chapter 8, but I think this is an amazing quote:

"That's wonderful, then. I'm sorry, I just find it hard to whip up an interest in the subject. It's admirable, what you do, but to me animal-welfare people are a bit like Christians of a certain kind. Everyone is so cheerful and well intentioned that after a while you itch to go off and do some raping and pillaging. Or to kick a cat".
