Never so good- I both hate and love, knowing not which is which. I wont be able to stop hurting you, you know. Freedom is about building a better world. Its about being and doing whatever you want. We didnt win the war so people could indulge themselves! Harold, no one cares.

Its good to know that there are still cultured people in our society.... SEE YOU AT THE THEATRE! *smile* DING!
And I quote-
"The majority of people attending theatre performances are not interested one bit in the play, but mostly in being seen by the others. Its a social status. Second to that, with any couple you happen to catch taking a seat, be nice to the husband and offer him a sympathetic smile for he just lost an argument with his wife and is missing out on tonight's wrestling match in favor of you.

Empty seats mean honest people, saying "You dont perform well enough for me to come". Or...they just won the argument with their wife."

It seems that for the longest time now, all I've been having is nightmares. I wake up, and my heart is pounding in my ears, I feel disgusting, and even if I can't recall the details I remember the feeling. I know I've had a nightmare. It's like waking up on the wrong side of the bed every morning. Blarg.

Fram asks... is theatre obsolete. Are there things that theatre and poetry can't capture? I think the answer is no. I believe in the empty spaces in theatre. The imagination can capture anything.

Aaron Eckhart said somthing like... having a testimony, or being around people who have testimonies doesn't save you.
I think I might know these people. Less epic versions of them at least.

Invisible Monster- Chuck Palahniuk. Find good in what the world says is evil.

"Sorry, mom. Sorry, God."
"The one you love, and the one who loves you are never, ever the same person."
"Nothing of me is original. I am the combined effort of everyone I've ever known."
"When did the future switch from being a promise to being a threat?"
"No matter how much you think you love somebody, you'll step back when the pool of their blood edges up too close." 
"Give me lust, baby. 

Give me malice. 
Give me detached existentialist ennui. 
Give me rampant intellectualism as a coping mechanism." 
Everything before now, before now, before now, is just a story I carry around. I guess that would apply to anybody in the world. What I need is a new story about who I am. 
What I need to do is fuck up so bad I can't save myself." 
"You can only hold a smile for so long, after that it's just teeth." 

Blankets- Craig Thompson.

"You have so many layers, that you can peel away a few, and everyone's so shocked or impressed that you're baring your soul, while to you it's nothing, because you know you've twenty more layers to go." 

"How satisfying it is to leave a mark on a blank surface. To make a map of my movement - no matter how temporary."

"Shame is always easier to handle if you have someone to share it with."

"The only thing an actress like me needs to do 

is say onstage I'm starving, and you'll believe it's true."

"Sorry if I'm not actually starving."
"Man cannot rely on the sun being eternal. One day the sun will die.
Humanity will die with temperatures so low
and it will mean the end of everything we know."

"But what if humanity could co-operate
and collectively save the doomed globe from its fate?"

"Yeah, that fucked my brain.
Nansen's idea of chit-chat or bedtime conversation
conjuring up the vision of the globe's annihilation,
I think that that belief of his helped put into my head
that life had no purpose and I was better dead."

"Can you look into your heart and find empathy
with those destined to be losers, like me, like me like me?"

 "I've seen it so many times but now the flag that's flown
and the brains that burst out with it are no beast's but are my own,
a blast of flapping banner, a gory banderole,
a bloodflag with the blazon of my brain-sick blackened soul."
"You've got to steel your mind and heart to gaze into that void
and then commit to action abd be busily employed.
We create our purpose, we create our goal.
And now it's helping humankind, not reaching the North Pole.
Science says its certain, Johansen's desperate reaction
was drink, depression, suicide, mine was always action."

"Don't envy you that. Can't imagine anything worse
than gave to hear some British broad spouting fucking verse."

"We must keep on challenging language to engage
with all we suffer from in this new modern age.
If it doesn't have the words we must challenge it to find
new ones that will measure up to the disasters of mankind."

"The messenger speech. A messenger speech
reaches depths in the heart mere pictures never reach.
If the messenger's on target, the mind's eye of the hearer
more than vision itself brings horror even nearer."
