- Invisible Man
Without light I am not only invisible, but formless as well; and to be unaware of one's form is to live a death. I myself, after existing some twenty years, did not become alive until I discovered my invisibility.
- What is Comic Timing?
Comic timing emerges from a performer's joke delivery. The pacing of the delivery of a joke can have a strong impact on its comedic effect, even altering its meaning. Interacting with an audience to guide their laughter, then guides the comedic narrative.
- Instructions to Captain Meriwhether Lewis, June 20, 1803
The object of your mission is to explore the Missouri River, and such principal streams of it, as by its course and communication with the waters of the Columbia, Oregon, Colorado or any other river, may offer the most direct and practicable water communication across this continent for the purposes of commerce.
- Roughing It
Three months of camp life on Lake Tahoe would restore an Egyptian mummy to his pristine vigor, and give him an appetite like an alligator. The air up there in the clouds is very pure and fine, bracing and delicious. And why shouldn't it be? - it is the same the angels breathe.
Michael Goodrich, Roberto Tamassia, Michael Goldwasser
The notion of abstraction is to distill a complicated system down to its most fundamental parts. Typically, describing the parts of a system involves naming them and explaining their functionality. Applying the abstraction paradigm to the design of data structures gives rise to abstract data types (ADTs). An ADT is a mathematical model of a data structure that specifies the type of data stored, the operations supported on them, and the types of parameters of the operations.
- Two Weeks After Dieter Died
Two weeks after Dieter died, you could call him on the phone. He would tell you that he's not home, and it gave you an eerie feeling even though you knew it was just an answering machine. Somewhere deep inside you know they don't come back when they go, and he had gone and when they're gone... they're gone.
Love is the only thing that really matters in life. Love for others, love for self, love for nature - everything else is just a distraction or a farce.
Todd C. Miller
We trust you have received the usual lectures from the local System Administrator. It usually boils down to these three things: Respect the privacy of others. Think before you type. With great power comes great responsibility.

- Erwin's Final Discussion with Levi (English Dub)
For this to work - to convince these youths to charge toward their deaths - it would take an expert con-man and a whole slew of blatant lies. If I don't lead the Vanguard myself... then none of them will have the courage. Which means I must be the first to charge. And the first to be slain, as well. So, I'll never learn the truth.
- One Piece Novel: Ace's Story
All I knew of Roger came from the papers and books. I'd never met him or spoken with him. I just accepted whatever society and other people said about him, and assumed it was all true. What a shallow, ugly way of thinking. Since when had I become one of those nasty, cynical adults, always jumping to conclusions.
- How International Law Works
There is nothing to stop a legal argument continuing forever, simply switching from ascending to descending categories endlessly. Of course, legal arguments do not go on forever. But their resolution is not a result of the internal logic of the concepts, but represents interpretation backed by force.
It is important to look at death because it is a part of life. It is a sad thing, melancholy but romantic at the same time. It is the end of a cycle - everything has to end. The cycle of life is positive because it gives room for new things.
- Worth the Wait
Your love for him is one of a kind; and if he doesn't already realize that - he soon will. Just be patient with him - for love is patient. Just be kind to him - for love is kind. Just keep remembering all the reasons why you fell for him in the first place. Soon you will see that he was worth all the trouble he put you through.
- On Loss
When my mother died, someone told me, "I can only imagine what it must be like to lose someone you love." My response to her, and to anyone in general is this. Don't even try to imagine it if you have never lost someone. I say this, because trying to envision what it must be like is almost like you are putting that person in the grave prematurely. There is no need to put yourself through that pain. Instead, cherish what you have and know that you will face that pain eventually. But not today.
- Double Dexter
I mean, here I was, with a relentless invisible enemy laying siege to Castle Dexter, and instead of sharpening my sword and piling boulders on the battlements I was playing with my face in the hopes of getting Rita to make me a decent last meal.
RM from BTS
We're on some path that's set since we're born, but I still believe we can change some things. So I believe in my faith but I still don't believe in my fate.
- The Office - S7 E10 - “China”
They say the best vampires don't bleed their victims dry, but give them the strength so that they can bounce back only to be fed on again. I spared Pam, and I may feast off of her profits for years to come. I let Pam win. Haha, oh. I was not motivated by compassion. I have no compassion. Make sure you got that. Not motivated by compassion.
- The Worst Journey in the World
Polar exploration is at once the cleanest and most isolated way of having a bad time which has been devised. It is the only form of adventure in which you put on your clothes at Michaelmas and keep them on until Christmas, and, save for a layer of the natural grease of the body, find them as clean as though they were new. It is more lonely than London, more secluded than any monastery, and the post comes but once a year.
