Zitat des Tages – The real world

Januar 2, 2016

„Look at it: a world built on fantasy. Synthetic emotions in the form of pills. Psychological warfare in the form of advertisements. Mind-altering chemicals in the form of food. Brain-washing seminars in the form of media. Controlled, isolated bubbles in the form of social networks. Real? You want to talk about reality? We haven’t lived in anything close to it since the turn of the century. Took out the batteries, snacked on a bag of GMOs while we tossed the remnants in the ever-expanding dumpster of the human condition. We live in branded houses, trademarked by corporations, built on bipolar numbers jumping up and down on digital displays, hypnotizing us into the greatest slumber mankind has ever seen. You have to dig pretty deep, kiddo, before you can find anything real. We live in a kingdom of bullshit, a kingdom you’ve lived in for far too long. So don’t tell me about not being real. I’m no less real than the fucking patty in your big mac.“

Zitat des Tages – Society

Dezember 27, 2015

Krista: „What is it about society that disappoints you so much?“

Elliot: „Oh I don’t know, is it that we collectively thought Steve Jobs was a great man even when we knew he made billions off the backs of children?
Or maybe it’s that it feels like all our heroes are counterfeit; the world itself’s just one big hoax. Spamming each other with our burning commentary of bullshit masquerading as insight, our social media faking as intimacy.
Or is it that we voted for this? Not with our rigged elections, but with our things, our property, our money.
I’m not saying anything new. We all know why we do this, not because Hunger Games books makes us happy but because we wanna be sedated. Because it’s painful not to pretend, because we’re cowards.
Fuck Society.“

Krista: „Elliot, you’re not saying anything. What’s wrong?“

Elliot: „Nothing.“

Zitat des Tages – Leben

Dezember 26, 2015

„Ich bin Leben, das leben will, inmitten von Leben, das leben will.“

„Auf tausend Arten steht meine Existenz mit anderen in Konflikt. Die Notwendigkeit, Leben zu vernichten und Leben zu schädigen, ist mir auferlegt. Wenn ich auf einsamen Pfade wandle, bringt mein Fuß Vernichtung und Weh über die kleinen Lebewesen, die ihn bevölkern. Um mein Dasein zu erhalten, muß ich mich des Daseins, das es schädigt, erwehren. […] Meine Nahrung gewinne ich durch Vernichtung von Pflanzen und Tieren. Mein Glück erbaut sich aus der Schädigung der Nebenmenschen.“

„Ethisch ist nur die Ehrfurcht meines Willens zum Leben vor jedem andern Willen zum Leben. Wo ich irgendwie Leben opfere oder schädige, bin ich nicht in der Ethik, sondern ich werde schuldig.“

„Wenn so viel Mißhandlung der Kreatur vorkommt, wenn der Schrei der auf dem Eisenbahntransport verdurstenden Tiere ungehört verhallt, wenn in unsern Schlachthäusern so viel Roheit waltet, wenn in unsern Küchen Tiere von ungeübten Händen qualvollen Tod empfangen, wenn Tiere durch unbarmherzige Menschen Unmögliches erdulden oder dem grausamen Spiele von Kindern ausgeliefert sind, tragen wir alle Schuld daran.

– A. Schweitzer (1923)


Zitat des Tages – A Beautiful Mind

Dezember 24, 2015

„I find you attractive. Your aggressive moves toward me… indicate that you feel the same way. But still, ritual requires that we continue with a number of platonic activities… before we have sex. I am proceeding with these activities, but in point of actual fact, all I really want to do is have intercourse with you as soon as possible.“

 

„I don’t exactly know what I am required to say in order for you to have intercourse with me. But could we assume that I said all that. I mean essentially we are talking about fluid exchange right? So could we go just straight to the sex.“


Zitat des Tages – Tiere

„Die größte Blamage der Menschheitsgeschichte ist es, daß das Wort „Tierschutz“ geprägt werden mußte.“

Zitat des Tages – Everyday is exactly the same

September 5, 2015

I believe I can see the future
Cause I repeat the same routine
I think I used to have a purpose
But then again
That might have been a dream
I think I used to have a voice
Now I never make a sound
I just do what I’ve been told
I really don’t want them to come around

Oh, no

Every day is exactly the same
Every day is exactly the same
There is no love here and there is no pain
Every day is exactly the same

I can feel their eyes are watching
In case I lose myself again
Sometimes I think I’m happy here
Sometimes, yet I still pretend
I can’t remember how this got started
But I can tell you exactly how it will end

I’m writing on a little piece of paper
I’m hoping someday you might find
Well I’ll hide it behind something
They won’t look behind
I’m still inside here
A little bit comes bleeding through
I wish this could have been any other way
But I just don’t know, I don’t know what else I can do

Zitat des Tages – broken

September 4, 2015

Well, what the fuck do you want me to say? That my life is a train wreck of a disaster? That my life is a shithole? Well, I already know this. This isn’t news to me, okay? I know that I am broken.
