"Revenge is a dish best served with pinto beans and muffins."

i just discovered Spielberg's other comedy animated series besides Animaniacs and Pinky and the Brain - Freakazoid. I am finding it to have almost the right blend of hilarious, disturbing, and weirdly motivating.

It helps that it had Khan in it.

A few days ago, I remembered this again. It's so nice, even though everyone quotes it everywhere.

"When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life." -- John Lennon

"Please try to remember that word I loved- "happiness" is a curious thing, so I hope you can love tomorrow." -- Ayano no Koufuku Riron
As if to spite this hateful world, I decided to love it.

It fits Yukio just perfectly.

“Do you ever wonder whether people would like you more or less if they could see inside you? I always wondered about that. If people could see me the way I see myself, if they could live in my memories, would anyone, anyone, love me?” - John Green

And this one fits Rin.

"I think one of the reasons why he gets so reckless is because he knows he’s not even supposed to be alive." - Jensen talking about Dean (source)

Light moves faster than sound. That is why some people appear bright, until you hear them speak.

The trouble with having an open mind, of course, is that people will insist on coming along and trying to put things in it.

Be who you are and say what you feel because the people who mind don't matter and the people who matter don't mind.

Eighty percent of success is showing up. –Woody Allen

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. –Mark Twain

You can never cross the ocean until you have the courage to lose sight of the shore. –Christopher Columbus

my favorite quote ever:
Quote
    Critics who treat adult as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence. And in childhood and adolescence they are, in moderation, healthy symptoms. Young things ought to want to grow. But to carry on into middle life or even into early manhood this concern about being adult is a mark of really arrested development. When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty I read them openly. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.

        C.S. Lewis - "On Three Ways of Writing for Children" (1952)

of course, there's also a rather great part from Someplace to Be Flying by Charles de Lint, the start of a chapter, starts off with
Quote
Didn't he go on, Moth thought as they sat around listening to another of Jack's stories later that night. But this was a good one. Moth had heard it before. All about how you didn't fall from grace, but into it.
and then it brings us a bit with this
Quote
People didn't find the potential for paradise until they left the garden and started thinking for themselves. Screwed up more often than they didn't, but hell, everybody made mistakes. Another word for that was "experience."

and later in the book there's this
Quote
"That's what Raven figures it was all about, Cody," she said. "Keeping the Grace in this world. Maybe her light's not as strong as it once was, maybe the world's gotten darker since the first day, and it's still getting darker, but something's shining on. In you. In me. Everywhere you look, if you take the time to pay attention. So we've got two choices. We can let the darkness win, or we can celebrate the Grace and shine her light stronger."

seriously, I love that book. wonderful story, lots of meat on it, and suffused with a spiritual philosophy that can touch something in you. granted, that's not the only book he's written like that. Trader, Onion Girl, Spirits in the Wires, The Blue Girl, and I could go on even more... they've all got that extra meat to them that makes them more than just stories. they've all got those snippets, sentences, paragraphs, sections that can stick in your head and speak to something in you.

EDIT:
also, in Fudoki by Kij Johnson there's a rather amusing it at the end of the first exchange between the cat that would eventually be known as Kagaya-hime and the kami of the road.
Quote
“Nev­er mind,” she said. “I don’t see what the point of a god is.”

The ka­mi said, “I do not see what the point of a cat is.”

and later there's a rather interesting part written from the POV of the aged imperial princess who is writing the story of the cat who becomes Kagaya-hime about the time she made up a kami to pray to.
Quote
I knew I made up the ka­mi of that stone, and yet oth­ers wor­shiped it, as well. Af­ter think­ing on this for some years, I de­cid­ed that I was wrong: is not ev­ery­thing filled with ka­mi, ev­ery stick and rock and leaf? Per­haps I had been the first to rec­og­nize and wor­ship this ka­mi, but that did not mean it had not been there, lone­ly and hun­gry for at­ten­tion, like a bored lit­tle girl.

Now, so many decades lat­er that I do not choose to count them up, I think there may be an­oth­er truth to this—that the rock was wor­thy of wor­ship be­cause it had been wor­shiped—that ev­ery shrine in the world be­gan as mine did, with some­one’s long­ing for some­thing greater than her­self.

Quote from: Anton Ego, "Ratatouille"
In many ways, the work of a critic is easy. We risk very little, yet enjoy a position over those who offer up their work and their selves to our judgment. We thrive on negative criticism, which is fun to write and to read.

But the bitter truth we critics must face, is that in the grand scheme of things, the average piece of junk is probably more meaningful than our criticism designating it so. But there are times when a critic truly risks something, and that is in the discovery and defense of the *new*. The world is often unkind to new talent, new creations. The new needs friends.

Last night, I experienced something new: an extraordinary meal from a singularly unexpected source. To say that both the meal and its maker have challenged my preconceptions about fine cooking is a gross understatement. They have rocked me to my core. In the past, I have made no secret of my disdain for Chef Gusteau's famous motto, "Anyone can cook." But I realize, only now do I truly understand what he meant. Not everyone can become a great artist; but a great artist *can* come from *anywhere*.

Quote from: Hiccup, "How To Train Your Dragon"
Most people would leave. Not us. We're Vikings. We... have stubbornness issues.

As you can see, I've been on an animated movies marathon. HTTYD was absolutely great.

Xena: Warrior Princess

Quote
Random due whose name I don't care about: You can't think clearly in you current mind state.

Xena: I'm pregnant, not mentally sick.

Charmed (the episode where Piper's baby makes her interchange powers/feelings with Leo)
Quote
Leo: I don't understand what's happening to me.

Paige: Those are tears.

Leo: But why?

Paige: Pregnancy hormones.

Leo: I thought that was just an excuse...

Huehuehue:

“I have come here to chew bubblegum and kick ass…and I’m all out of bubblegum.”
—Nada, They Live

“I have had it with these motherf*****' snakes on this motherf*****' plane!”
—Neville, Snakes On A Plane

“So long, and thanks for all the fish!”
—Dolphins, I guess, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (film)

FIGHT CLUB!

“It's only after we've lost everything that we're free to do anything.”

“Self improvement is masturbation...”

“You are not your job, you're not how much money you have in the bank. You are not the car you drive. You're not the contents of your wallet. You are not your fucking khakis.”

“We’re the middle children of history, man. No purpose or place. We have no Great War. No Great Depression. Our Great War’s a spiritual war… our Great Depression is our lives. We’ve all been raised on television to believe that one day we’d all be millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars. But we won’t. And we’re slowly learning that fact. And we’re very, very pissed off.”

“Maybe self-improvement isn't the answer, maybe self-destruction is the answer.”

“We are not special. We are not crap or trash, either. We just are. We just are, and what happens just happens.”

“If you could be either God’s worst enemy or nothing, which would you choose?”

In Tyler we trust.

"I never paid attention to this quote, but when I ran into some problems, I realized how strong its meaning is:
    -This is such a paradox: we perform feats for those who no longer care about us, but those who need us love us even without any feats ...
  In general, lately I have begun to think deeply about the meaning of many quotes, most likely it comes with age. I also like to read about the meaning of many symbols, for example, at https://www.sunsigns.org/august-11-birthday-zodiac-leo-truthful/ I read information about the meaning of zodiac signs and how they affect our destiny."
