We knew the world would not be the same. A few people laughed, a few people cried. Most people were silent. I remembered the line from the Hindu scripture, the Bhagavad-Gita; Vishnu is trying to persuade the Prince that he should do his duty, and to impress him, takes on his multi-armed form and says, ‘Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.’ I suppose we all thought that, one way or another.J. Robert Oppenheimer (1965)

“When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro”
“Freedom is something that dies unless it’s used”
“In a closed society where everybody’s guilty, the only crime is getting caught. In a world of thieves, the only final sin is stupidity.”
“You can turn your back on a person, but never turn your back on a drug, especially when its waving a razor sharp hunting knife in your eye.”
“Politics is the art of controlling your environment.”
“Never turn your back on fear. It should always be in front of you, like something that might have to be killed”Hunter S. Thompson (1971) Fear and Loathing

You’re born, you live and you die. There are no do overs, no second chances to make things right if you frak them up the first time, not in this life anyway.Kendra Shaw – Battlestar Galactica
