No future

Some advice I’ve been listening to this morning (via iTunes):

“Quit living for a future that never fucking comes. It doesn’t exist. It ain’t coming. There is no future. There’s no such thing. It doesn’t exist. ‘You’re our future! The children are our future!’ There’s no such thing asshole! Take some mushrooms and squeegee your third fucking eye! (Makes squeegee noises) ‘Oh my god! There is only this moment!'” – WMH

Also …

“I see all this potential, and I see it squandered. God damn it, an entire generation pumping gas, waiting tables – slaves with white collars. Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we don’t need. We’re the middle children of history, man. No purpose or place. We have no Great War. No Great Depression. Our great war is a spiritual war. Our great depression is our lives. We’ve all been raised on television to believe that one day we’d all be millionaires and movie gods and rock stars, but we won’t. We’re slowly learning that fact. And we’re very, very pissed off.” – TD

And a few more just ’cause I like them.

“I think William Shakespeare was the wisest human being I ever heard of. To be perfectly frank, though, that’s not saying much. We are impossibly conceited animals, and actually dumb as heck. Ask any teacher. You don’t even have to ask a teacher. Ask anybody. Dogs and cats are smarter than we are.” – KV

“I have second thoughts. Maybe God is malicious.” – AE

“I have no race prejudices nor caste prejudices nor creed prejudices. All I care to know is that a man is a human being, and that is enough for me; he can’t be any worse.” – MT

“You are not a beautiful and unique snowflake. You are the same decaying organic matter as everyone else, and we are all a part of the same compost pile.” – TD

“Let me tell you the truth. The truth is ‘what is.’ And ‘what should be’ is a fantasy, a terrible terrible lie that someone gave to the people long ago.” – LB

“When you get to my age … you realize that the world is a madhouse and that most people are operating in fantasy anyway. So once you realize that, it doesn’t bother you much.” – JC

“I don’t give a fuck if they remember me at all.” – FZ
