-“I’m not bad, I’m just drawn that way.” Jessica Rabbit

-"Among other things, you'll find that you're not the first person who was ever confused and frightened and even sickened by human behavior. You're by no means alone on that score, you'll be excited and stimulated to know. Many, many men have been just as troubled morally and spiritually as you are right now. Happily, some of them kept records of their troubles. You'll learn from them—if you want to. Just as someday, if you have something to offer, someone will learn something from you. It's a beautiful reciprocal arrangement. And it isn't education. It's history. It's poetry."
J.D. Salinger

a slanted shipwreck
draped in its own torn sails.” Alicia Jo Rabins

-“You who will finally be the readers who will realize I am a fraud.”
“The most daunting part of the journey is that you must do it alone.”
-“At the heart of technology there is no heart.”
-“The robot of technology cannot take on the Dark Angel.”
-“We each have a story to tell.  The story is not like anybody else’s story.  Not exactly.  And the narrator telling the story is like no other narrator.  When each of us looked into our mother’s eyes, each of us saw something different.  Completely unique.”
