Zitat des Tages – Isolation

Mai 22, 2016

The barrier of loneliness: the palpable, desperate need of the human animal to be with his fellow man. Up there, up there in the vastness of space, in the void that is sky, up there is an enemy known as isolation. It sits there in the stars waiting, waiting with the patience of eons, forever waiting…

Zitat des Tages – otters and humans

Mai 21, 2016

Clara:  You can’t do this.  You cannot pass yourself off as a real person among actual people.
Doctor:  I lived among otters once for a month.  Well, I sulked.  River and I, we had this big fight …
Clara:  Human beings are not otters!
Doctor:  Exactly.  It’ll be even easier.

Zitat des Tages – fear

Mai 21, 2016

Listen. This is just a dream. But very clever people can hear dreams. So please just listen. I know you’re afraid, but being afraid is all right. Because didn’t anybody ever tell you? Fear is a superpower. Fear can make you faster, and cleverer, and stronger. And one day, you’re gonna come back to this barn, and on that day, you’re going to be very afraid indeed. But that’s okay. Because if you’re very wise and very strong, fear doesn’t have to make you cruel or cowardly. Fear can make you kind. … It doesn’t matter if there’s nothing under the bed, or in the dark, so long as you know it’s okay to be afraid of it. So listen. If you listen to nothing else, listen to this: you’re always going to be afraid, even if you learn to hide it. Fear is like… a companion. A constant companion, always there. But that’s okay. Because fear can bring us together. Fear can bring you home. I’m gonna leave you something just so you’ll always remember. Fear makes companions of us all.

Zitat des Tages: Geschwätz

Februar 6, 2016

„Du stehst da und hast mit einem Menschen gesprochen. Es war ein Mann von Mittelgröße, blond, in braunem Mantel – es war ein Schwatzkopf; aber du hoffst fast, mit ihm fertig geworden zu sein. Im selben Augenblick, da er geht, kommt da ein anderer: ein großer, schwerer Mann, dunkelhäutig, in blauem Frack – das ist doch wohl nicht derselbe Mensch? Freilich nicht, ach, aber es ist das gleiche Geschwätz. Und so dann ins Unendliche. Kein Tier ist so furchtbar wie Geschwätz; nur daß das Geschwätz 100 000 Millionen Junge wirft – die alle verschieden aussehen, aber dennoch das gleiche Geschwätz sind.“

 

– S. Kierkegaard (1834–1855)


Zitat des Tages – Classic Phone Sex

Januar 5, 2016

Sarah Connor: [answers the phone] Hello?
Matt Buchanan: First I’m gonna rip the buttons off your blouse one by one, then run my tongue down your neck to your bare, gleaming breasts. And then slowly… slowly pull your jeans off inch by inch.
Sarah Connor: [starts laughing and covers the receiver with her hand] Ginger, it’s Matt.
Matt Buchanan: And lick your belly in circles further and further down, and then pull your panties off with my teeth.
Sarah Connor: [in a serious tone] Who *is* this?
Matt Buchanan: God. Sarah? Jesus. I’m Sorry. I thought you were… Can I talk to Ginger please?
Sarah Connor: Sure, Bunky.
Ginger Ventura: [takes the phone from Sarah] Hello?
Matt Buchanan: First I’m gonna rip the buttons off your blouse one by one…

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 – 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.“

„Hopefully, the three of us.“

„Oh, my God. I’ll get your bill.“ (Disgust)
