    That was an awful joke honey

    I see you're improved on this rhyming game, I was really starting to find it lame. But you still got nothing on this mighty brain, plus you gotta rhyme in binary numbers babe
    Well, I can try!

    Indeed I have done, but it's just a bit of fun! Yes, you're the superior one; with rhymes I'm just dumb. Binary goes too far for some, I thought you would've known that hun

    Wow, great use of bold, underline and italics, I think I actually really like it. Just to be clear and remove all possible fear, is this a joke or genuine offer here? I'd hate to get the wrong end of the stick, my dear

    Guys like us, that work on ranches, are the loneliest guys in the world. They got no family. They don't belong no place. They come to a ranch an' work up a stake and then they go inta town and blow their stake, and the first thing you know they're poundin' their tail on some other ranch. They ain't got nothing to look ahead to.

    Most of mine are from Terry Pratchett books, because there's no-one like Pterry for combining hilarity and thought-provoking philosophy in one quote.

    "It may help to understand human affairs to be clear that most of the great triumphs and tragedies of history are caused, not by people being fundamentally good or fundamentally bad, but by people being fundamentally people."
    - Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman, Good Omens

    "If you have to look along the shaft of an arrow from the wrong end, if a man has you entirely at his mercy, then hope like hell that man is an evil man. Because the evil like power, power over people, and they want to see you in fear. They want you to know you're going to die. So they'll talk. They'll gloat. They'll watch you squirm. They'll put off the moment of murder like another man will put off a good cigar. So hope like hell your captor is an evil man. A good man will kill you with hardly a word."
    - Terry Pratchett, Men at Arms

    "The reason that the rich were so rich, Vimes reasoned, was because they managed to spend less money. Take boots, for example. He earned thirty-eight dollars a month plus allowances. A really good pair of leather boots cost fifty dollars. But an affordable pair of boots, which were sort of OK for a season or two and then leaked like hell when the cardboard gave out, cost about ten dollars. Those were the kind of boots Vimes always bought, and wore until the soles were so thin that he could tell where he was in Ankh-Morpork on a foggy night by the feel of the cobbles. But the thing was that good boots lasted for years and years. A man who could afford fifty dollars had a pair of boots that’d still be keeping his feet dry in ten years’ time, while a poor man who could only afford cheap boots would have spent a hundred dollars on boots in the same time and would still have wet feet. This was the Captain Samuel Vimes “Boots” theory of socioeconomic unfairness."
    - Terry Pratchett, Men at Arms
    (Seriously, this is true. A lot of people don't realise it, but it actually costs more to be poor than to be rich, in terms of buying the necessities.)


    And a couple of honourable mentions to a webcomic:

    "There's more to being an evil despot than getting cake whenever you want it."
    and
    "It's all going to be alright! We're just going to kill you, and then you'll be fine!"

    Ohhhhhh yeah! :jive: A different answer could've given me a scare but if you were working, would've been fair. Awwww finding a person like you is (veryyyyyy) rare and that 'yet' shouldn't be there.

    I love the ending of The Kite Runner.



    “It was only a smile, nothing more. It didn't make everything all right. It didn't make ANYTHING all right. Only a smile. A tiny thing. A leaf in the woods, shaking in the wake of a startled bird's flight. But I'll take it. With open arms. Because when spring comes, it melts the snow one flake at a time, and maybe I just witnessed the first flake melting. - Amir”

    The only one I can even recall properly and remember it having some sort of profound effect on me is unfortunately a rather long one:
    Spoiler:
    Show
    “Where there was nature and earth, life and water, I saw a desert landscape that was unending, resembling some sort of crater, so devoid of reason and light and spirit that the mind could not grasp it on any sort of conscious level and if you came close the mind would reel backward, unable to take it in. It was a vision so clear and real and vital to me that in its purity it was almost abstract. This was what I could understand, this was how I lived my life, what I constructed my movement around, how I dealt with the tangible. This was the geography around which my reality revolved: it did not occur to me, ever, that people were good or that a man was capable of change or that the world could be a better place through one’s own taking pleasure in a feeling or a look or a gesture, of receiving another person’s love or kindness. Nothing was affirmative, the term “generosity of spirit” applied to nothing, was a cliche, was some kind of bad joke. Sex is mathematics. Individuality no longer an issue. What does intelligence signify? Define reason. Desire- meaningless. Intellect is not a cure. Justice is dead. Fear, recrimination, innocence, sympathy, guilt, waste, failure, grief, were things, emotions, that no one really felt anymore. Reflection is useless, the world is senseless. Evil is its only permanence. God is not alive. Love cannot be trusted. Surface, surface, surface, was all that anyone found meaning in…this was civilization as I saw it, colossal and jagged…”
