This is a collection of quotes that I find interesting for one reason or another; whether they be funny, thought provoking, weird, or random. This page is a work in progress, and whenever I stumble across quotes I feel are worthy to be included, I will add them. Feel free to take them for your own use, but if you do use any of them please give credit to the author(s) of the quote(s) you choose to borrow, because nobody likes a thief.

The really important kind of freedom involves attention, and awareness, and discipline, and effort, and being able truly to care about other people and to sacrifice for them, over and over, in myriad petty little unsexy ways, every day.

~David Foster Wallace

The interesting thing is why we're so desperate for this anesthetic against loneliness.

~David Foster Wallace

An intellectual is a person who's found one thing that's more interesting than sex.

~Aldous Huxley

Every man who knows how to read has it in his power to magnify himself, to multiply the ways in which he exists; to make his life full, significant, and interesting.

~Aldous Huxley

A safe but sometimes chilly way of recalling the past is to force open a crammed drawer. If you are searching for anything in particular you don't find it, but something falls out at the back that is often more interesting.

~James M. Barrie

Whoever fights monsters should see to it that in the process he does not become a monster. And if you gaze long enough into an abyss, the abyss will gaze back into you.

~Friedrich Nietzsche

It breaks your heart. It is designed to break your heart. The game begins in the spring, when everything else begins again, and it blossoms in the summer, filling the afternoons and evenings, and then as soon as the chill rains come, it stops and leaves you to face the fall alone. You count on it, rely on it to buffer the passage of time, to keep the memory of sunshine and high skies alive, and then just when the days are all twilight, when you need it most, it stops.

~A. Bartlett Giamatti (on baseball)

Nothing is better than the theater of the mind whilst reading a good book.

~Adam Shaw
