"The rain and snow had pelted the gravestones in the little plot of that empty town for over two hundred years. And when they came upon it in those deep woods, nothing was left save those blank stone faces speaking only of death."

“Evolution cannot avoid bringing intelligent life ultimately to an awareness of one thing above all else and that one thing is futility.”

Re: Original Quotes

"If it were at all possible to foresee the amount of effort required to accomplish great things, if we could experience the necessary pain and trouble involved, no one would ever bother lifting a pen or climbing a mountain. It is only the gradual unfolding of time which makes the effort tolerable. 'Too late to turn back now,' says the mind."

"In a less scientific age, he would have been a devil-worshipper, a partaker in the abominations of the Black Mass; or would have given himself to the study and practice of sorcery. His was a religious soul that had failed to find good in the scheme of things; and lacking it, was impelled to make of evil itself an object of secret reverence."

Re: Original Quotes

A happy moment and Time itself smiles upon us, albeit briefly.
But a wretched one and that smile of sunshine and blue skies becomes a jailer's frown, whispering, whispering, "The Present is Eternal and this moment will be your hell."

Re: Original Quotes

He was born with a silver spoon in his mouth. On Wall Street, he had the Midas Touch. His wallet held a Platinum Card. Soon he learned to turn lead into gold.

He died from heavy metal poisoning...

"The conflict between good and evil must ultimately be traced back to the conflict between the mind and the genitals."

"There is no depth to the world, which explains why the cynic is always right."

"It's all trash, ladies and gentlemen. Calm your minds."

"All it takes for one to recognize the futility of existence is for one to do the right thing and observe the consequences."

"Poor talent in the arts is usually mistaken for subversion. The ignorant rejoice upon seeing something they understand."

"In a less scientific age, he would have been a devil-worshipper, a partaker in the abominations of the Black Mass; or would have given himself to the study and practice of sorcery.

Re: Original Quotes

"For some, namely sheltered academics in ivory towers, the strings were of profound theoretical interest. They occupied a special place in the world of physics where it was believed they had the capacity to reconcile quantum mechanics with Einstein’s theory of relativity. But the strings, it was thought, were not simply capable of resolving mathematical contradictions; they were also of metaphysical importance to the scientific community. Because of the explanatory power which the strings provided, scientists thought it appropriate to liken the universe itself to a grand, cosmic symphony composed by an intelligent mind. The truth, however, was that the ongoing music of the strings played without the artfulness of a musician or the guidance of a conductor. It was a stupid melody, assuming one could even call it that, which existed since the strings came into being a long time ago."

"In a less scientific age, he would have been a devil-worshipper, a partaker in the abominations of the Black Mass; or would have given himself to the study and practice of sorcery. His was a religious soul that had failed to find good in the scheme of things; and lacking it, was impelled to make of evil itself an object of secret reverence."

Re: Original Quotes

"After the long silence of a sleepless night, where one fancies that he can work out the world and have its complete image in the mind, rendering all its horror somehow null, it comes as a comical shock that the first few sounds of the waking mass in those morning hours destroys that notion and holds one in terror, as a child is terrorized of the writhing shadows in his room."

"Man is the deceitful animal. He cannot live without lying to both himself and others on a daily basis."

"Deceitfulness is the very foundation of society."

"The man who is consistently honest is one who is stunted."

"Let it all fall down."

"In a less scientific age, he would have been a devil-worshipper, a partaker in the abominations of the Black Mass; or would have given himself to the study and practice of sorcery. His was a religious soul that had failed to find good in the scheme of things; and lacking it, was impelled to make of evil itself an object of secret reverence."
