I have this…thing. A desire. To be an Omnipresent being. An Aftermathematician. A Minister of Confluenza. So whenever I can, I detach myself from the norms of society since everyone else is already pretty good at doing the opposite. So forgive me if I am distant. Forgive me for I cannot fail my muse. Forgive me for I refuse to compromise. Forgive me for the things I believe in are far bigger than you and the things you say and the things you stand for. Forgive me. And fuck you.”

“Life is a box of chocolates. You don’t get any.”

“If we absolutely have to shoot ourselves in the head let’s try not to hit everyone else, please.
