"Stupidity has a price; and it always gets paid." Dan Simmons, The Fall of Hyperion

As human beings, we have come to a crossroads of existence and its actuality and tangibility.We admit the world is indeterminate. We admit that electrons do have fuzzy edges. When one collides, it may bounce one way. It may bounce the other.

We just can't say for certain - after hundreds of years of scientific research and how many men and women alike dying with the weight of a mathematical equation heavy on the heart?...we just don't know the answers to the Universe. 

Because we aren't supposed to. Swallow it and move on. Write about it, the answer has never been closer than in those moments defined by our imaginations.

Don't let those moments go to waste, my friends...life is too very short.

SOME OF MY FAVORITE QUOTES:

"Sweater, n.: garment worn by child when its mother is feeling chilly."

-Ambrose Bierce

"For a solitary animal egoism is a virtue that tends to preserve and improve the species: in any kind of community it becomes a destructive vice."

-Erwin Schrödinger

 

"In the beginning was the Word. Then came the f***ing word processor. Then came the thought processor. Then came the death of literature. And so it goes..."

-Martin Silenus (The Hyperion Cantos by Dan Simmons)

 

“There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed.”
-Ernest Hemingway
