"To see a world in a grain of sand,
And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
An eternity in an hour.."

  • "Two years he walks the earth. No phone, no pool, no pets, no cigarettes. Ultimate freedom. An extremist. An aesthetic voyager whose home is the road. Escaped from Atlanta. Thou shalt not return, 'cause "the West is the best." And now after two rambling years comes the final and greatest adventure. The climactic battle to kill the false being within and victoriously conclude the spiritual pilgrimage. Ten days and nights of freight trains and hitchhiking bring him to the Great White North. No longer to be poisoned by civilization he flees, and walks alone upon the land to become lost in the wild." — Alexander Supertramp, May 1992
  • "I don't know anything with certainty but seeing the stars makes me dream." - Vincent Van Gogh
  • "He knew that 'I love you' also means 'I love you more than anyone loves you, or has loved you, or will love you,' and also, 'I love you in a way that I love no one else, and never have loved anyone else, and never will love anyone else.'" - Jonathan Safran Foer, Everything is Illuminated
  • "Let us toast to animal pleasures, to escapism, to rain on the roof and instant coffee, to unemployment insurance and library cards, to absinthe and good-hearted landlords, to music and warm bodies and contraceptives... and to the "good life", whatever it is and wherever it happens to be." - Hunter S. Thompson, Proud Highway
  • "One day I will find the right words, and they will be simple." - Jack Kerouac, Dharma Bums
  • "We live. We work. We're just getting started." - 10 Items or Less
  • "Which is the most universal of human characteristics, fear or laziness?" - Waking Life
  • "It's bad enough that you sell your waking life for minimum wage, but now they get your dreams for free." - Waking Life
  • "Hey, are you a dreamer? I haven't seen too many of you around lately. Things have been tough lately for dreamers. They say dreaming's dead, that no one does it anymore. It's not dead. It's just that it's been forgotten. Removed from our language. Nobody teaches it, so no one knows it exists. The dreamer is banished to obscurity. I'm trying to change all that, and I hope you are too. By dreaming every day. Dreaming with our hands and dreaming with our minds. Our planet is facing the greatest problems it's ever faced. Ever. So whatever you do, don't be bored. This is absolutely the most exciting time we could have possibly hoped to be alive. And things are just starting." - Waking Life
  • "But didn't I mention the ongoing "wow" is happening right now? We are all coauthors of this dancing exuberance...where even our inabilities are having a roast. We are the authors of ourselves, coauthoring a gigantic Dostoyevsky novel starring clowns. This entire thing we're involved with called the an opportunity to exhibit how exciting alienation can be." - Waking Life
  • "I can learn to love and make the paradoxes that bug me. And on really romantic evenings of self, I go salsa dancing with my confusion. Before you drift off, don't forget. Which is to say, remember.Because remembering is so much more a psychotic activity than forgetting." - Waking Life
  • "As the pattern gets more intricate and subtle, being swept along is no longer enough." - Waking Life
  • "Go then. There are other worlds than these." Jake Chambers, The Gunslinger (Stephen King)
