Explanations: "I have approximate answers and possible beliefs and different degrees of certainty about different things, but I'm not absolutely sure of anything and there are many things I don't know about, such as whether it means anything to ask why we're here, and what the question might mean. I might think about it a little bit and if I can't figure it out, then I go on to something else, but I don't have to know an answer. I don't feel frightened by not knowing things, by being lost in a mysterious universe without having any purpose, which is the way it really is so far as I can tell. It doesn't really frighten me." Richard Feynman
"We see a deadly sin on every street corner, in every home...and we tolerate it. We tolerate it because it's common...it's trivial. We tolerate it morning, noon, and night." John Doe from Se7en

"Death twitches my ear; 'live,' he says, 'I am coming.'" Virgil
"The poet mixes drinks out of wild liquors and is perpetually surprised that no one staggers." Lawrence Ferlinghetti "Poetry as Insurgent Art"
