Bio

I love quotes. So, here's a bunch of quotes and passages.


“Evil is evil, Stregobor,” said the witcher seriously as he got up. “Lesser, greater, middling, it's all the same. Proportions are negotiated, boundaries blurred. I’m not a pious hermit. I haven't done only good in my life. But if I’m to choose between one evil and another, then I prefer not to choose at all.”

The Last Wish



“Tell me, Tool, what dominates your thoughts?'
The Imass shrugged before replying.
'I think of futility, Adjunct.'
'Do all Imass think about futility?'
'No. Few think at all.'
'Why is that?'
The Imass leaned his head to one side and regarded her.
'Because Adjunct, it is futile.”

Gardens of the Moon



“Dear friend…'

The Witcher swore quietly, looking at the sharp, angular, even runes drawn with energetic sweeps of the pen, faultlessly reflecting the author’s mood. He felt once again the desire to try to bite his own backside in fury. When he was writing to the sorceress a month ago he had spent two nights in a row contemplating how best to begin. Finally, he had decided on “Dear friend.” Now he had his just deserts.

'Dear friend, your unexpected letter – which I received not quite three years after we last saw each other – has given me much joy. My joy is all the greater as various rumours have been circulating about your sudden and violent death. It is a good thing that you have decided to disclaim them by writing to me; it is a good thing, too, that you are doing so so soon. From your letter it appears that you have lived a peaceful, wonderfully boring life, devoid of all sensation. These days such a life is a real privilege, dear friend, and I am happy that you have managed to achieve it.

I was touched by the sudden concern which you deigned to show as to my health, dear friend. I hasten with the news that, yes, I now feel well; the period of indisposition is behind me, I have dealt with the difficulties, the description of which I shall not bore you with. It worries and troubles me very much that the unexpected present you received from Fate brings you worries. Your supposition that this requires professional help is absolutely correct. Although your description of the difficulty – quite understandably – is enigmatic, I am sure I know the Source of the problem. And I agree with your opinion that the help of yet another magician is absolutely necessary. I feel honoured to be the second to whom you turn. What have I done to deserve to be so high on your list?

Rest assured, my dear friend; and if you had the intention of supplicating the help of additional magicians, abandon it because there is no need. I leave without delay, and go to the place which you indicated in an oblique yet, to me, understandable way. It goes without saying that I leave in absolute secrecy and with great caution. I will surmise the nature of the trouble on the spot and will do all that is in my power to calm the gushing source. I shall try, in so doing, not to appear any worse than other ladies to whom you have turned, are turning or usually turn with your supplications. I am, after all, your dear friend. Your valuable friendship is too important to me to disappoint you, dear friend.

Should you, in the next few years, wish to write to me, do not hesitate for a moment. Your letters invariably give me boundless pleasure.

Your friend Yennefer'

The letter smelled of lilac and gooseberries.

Geralt cursed.”

Blood of Elves



"They'd ride at night up along the western mesa two hours from the ranch and sometimes he'd build a fire and they could see the gaslights at the hacienda gates far below them floating in a pool of black and sometimes the lights seemed to move as if the world down there turned on some other center and they saw stars fall to earth by the hundreds and she told him stories of her father's family and of Mexico. Going back they'd walk the horses into the lake and the horses would stand and drink with the water at their chests and the stars in the lake bobbed and tilted where they drank and if it rained in the mountains the air would be close and the night more warm and one night he left her and rode down along the edge of the lake through the sedge and willow and slid from the horses back and pulled off his boots and his clothes and walked out into the lake where the moon slid away before him and ducks gabbled out there in the dark.

The water was black and warm and he turned in the lake and spread his arms in the water and the water was so dark and so silky and he watched across the still black surface to where she stood on the shore with the horse and he watched where she stepped from her pooled clothing so pale, so pale, like a chrysalis emerging, and walked into the water. She paused midway to look back. Standing there trembling in the water and not from the cold for there was none.

Do not speak to her. Do not call. When she reached him he held out his hand and she took it. She was so pale in the lake she seemed to be burning. Like foxfire in a darkened wood. That burned cold. Like the moon that burned cold. Her black hair floating on the water about her, falling and floating on the water. She put her other arm about his shoulder and looked toward the moon in the west do not speak to her do not call and then she turned her face up to him. Sweeter for the larceny of time and flesh, sweeter for the betrayal. Nesting cranes that stood singlefooted among the cane on the south shore had pulled their slender beaks from their wingpits to watch. Me quieres? she said. Yes, he said. He said her name. God yes, he said."

All The Pretty Horses



"You've finally found me! Oh, Geralt! I waited all this time! Yes, a terribly long time... We'll stay together now, won't we? Now we'll be together, right? Say it, Geralt! Forever! Say it!"
"Forever, Ciri."
"Yes, just like they said! Geralt! Like they said... I'm your destiny? Say it! I'm your destiny?"
"You're something more, Ciri. Something more."

Sword of Destiny



"He was a long time going to sleep. After a while he turned and looked at the man. His face in the small light streaked with black from the rain like some old world thespian. Can I ask you something? he said.

Yes. Of course.

Are we going to die?

Sometime. Not now."

The Road



“We are little flames poorly sheltered by frail walls against the storm of dissolution and madness, in which we flicker and sometimes almost go out…we creep in upon ourselves and with big eyes stare into the night…and thus we wait for morning.”

All Quiet On The Western Front



“When a man died, there had to be blame. Jimmy Cross understood this. You could blame the war, You could blame the idiots who made the war. You could blame Kiowa for going to it. You could blame the rain. You could blame the river. You could blame the field, the mud, the climate. You could blame the enemy. You could blame the mortar rounds. You could blame people who were too lazy to read a newspaper, who were bored by the daily body counts, who switched channels at the mention of politics. You could blame whole nations. You could blame God. You could blame the munitions makers or Karl Marx or a trick of fate of an old man in Omaha who forgot to vote.”

The Things They Carried



“When I lost my sight, Werner, people said I was brave. When my father left, people said I was brave. But it is not bravery; I have no choice. I wake up and live my life. Don't you do the same?”

All The Light We Cannot See



“I’ve fought in three campaigns,” he began. “In seven pitched battles. In countless raids and skirmishes and desperate defences, and bloody actions of every kind. I’ve fought in the driving snow, the blasting wind, the middle of the night. I’ve been fighting all my life, one enemy or another, one friend or another. I’ve known little else. I’ve seen men killed for a word, for a look, for nothing at all. A woman tried to stab me once for killing her husband, and I threw her down a well. And that’s far from the worst of it. Life used to be cheap as dirt to me. Cheaper.

“I’ve fought ten single combats and I won them all, but I fought on the wrong side and for all the wrong reasons. I’ve been ruthless, and brutal, and a coward. I’ve stabbed men in the back, burned them, drowned them, crushed them with rocks, killed them asleep, unarmed, or running away. I’ve run away myself more than once. I’ve pissed myself with fear. I’ve begged for my life. I’ve been wounded, often, and badly, and screamed and cried like a baby whose mother took her tit away. I’ve no doubt the world would be a better place if I’d been killed years ago, but I haven’t been, and I don’t know why.”

He looked down at his hands, pink and clean on the stone. “There are few men with more blood on their hands than me. None, that I know of. The Bloody-Nine they call me, my enemies, and there’s a lot of ’em. Always more enemies, and fewer friends. Blood gets you nothing but more blood. It follows me now, always, like my shadow, and like my shadow I can never be free of it. I should never be free of it. I’ve earned it. I’ve deserved it. I’ve sought it out. Such is my punishment.”

The Blade Itself



“However...," Satan said.
Bick sighed. "However, I didn't count on the growing interference of lawyers, regulators, bureaucrats and politicians into my business. I swear it seems that every year they stick their noses into more and more."
Lucifer chuckled. "Sorry about that-I outdid myself there.”

The Six-Gun Tarot



“You can look at a picture for a week and never think of it again. You can also look at a picture for a second and think of it all your life”

The Goldfinch



“Back then, when everybody thought the world would last forever, nobody had time for anything.”

The Leftovers



“All of them, all except Phineas, constructed at infinite cost to themselves these Maginot Lines against this enemy they thought they saw across the frontier, this enemy who never attacked that way-if he ever attacked at all; if he was indeed the enemy.”

A Separate Peace



“It seemed clear that wars were not made by generations and their special stupidities, but that wars were made instead by something ignorant in the human heart”

A Separate Peace



“Nothing endures. Not a tree. Not love. Not even death by violence.”

A Separate Peace



"Summon the bitches."

Can't speak for that dude, but I never disliked Kanye. Wasn't a massive fan of his music, but I liked a few songs here and there.
@Odin

To be clear, I love Kanye's support for Trump. The 'dragon energy' comment is something I love, this whole thing is something I love. Not to read too far into it, but I wonder if Kanye was making a reference to Lao Tzu - particularly the story about how Confucius stated he could not understand Lao Tzu because Lao Tzu "is a dragon".

ANYWAY, it could just be they're both doing the fusion dance and going Super Saiyan God mode, but that's just my top tier analysis going on here.

Also, I very much agree with you on the undemocratic social sphere of censorship we have going on. While legal free speech is wonderful, and in the USA it's generally superior to every country from what I've seen...

The social sphere of censorship, especially within the confines of media, advertisers, and social media platforms... might be the largest issue the world faces today. I'm not yet sure how it should be addressed, but the shadow bannings and algorithm shifts on these social media sites is highly undemocratic, extremely dangerous to free speech/free thought, and possibly unconstitutional and illegal.

We live in a hell of a world right now.
All about that Yeezy life. Maybe it's time to break out some College Dropout just because.
Just sit back and chill my brothers and sisters.

This shit is out of hand.

I wish Jay didn't apologize to these brainless idiots replying to this tweet. Political correctness is a disease.
None of these will be picked in any specific order when it comes to listing a top five!

1. What is the book you recommend to about everyone?

Sword of Destiny by Andrzej Sapkowski. It's a book of short stories revolving around the witcher Geralt of Rivia. Beautiful stories, and perhaps my favorite fantasy book of all time at this current moment.

2. What are your top 5 favorite books you've read?

- The Tower of Swallows by Andrzej Sapkowski - Fourth Installment in the Witcher Series
- Deadhouse Gates by Steven Erikson - Second in the Malazan Book of the Fallen. Have not finished this series yet. It's quite long!
- All The Pretty Horses by Cormac McCarthy - My time with Cormac has been limited, but I have many more of his books waiting on my shelf to be read. With that said, I have read this and The Road and the two are enough to make him one of my favorite authors. I adored this book.
- The Sun Also Rises by Ernest Hemingway - *sigh*
- Before They Are Hanged by Joe Abercrombie - I just really enjoyed the hell out of this whole book. Adventure. Grit. Banter. Old and dead civilization far larger and superior to new civilization. It was full of all the things I enjoy in fantasy.

I expect this list to transform like crazy once I actually have time to get back to that reading lyfe.

3. Top 5 authors?

- Ernest Hemingway
- Cormac McCarthy
- Andrzej Sapkowski
- Steven Erikson
- Mark Twain

4. Worst book you've ever read?

A Journal of the Plague Year by Daniel Defoe

It's a classic. It's taught in high school. I hated this book with every fiber of my being. I did not finish it. I willingly failed a test on this subject matter because I could not endure this text. The experience was the equivalent of having sandpaper roughly ground into my eyeballs. Perhaps, one day, when I'm feeling especially masochistic I will subject myself to reading this one more time.

5. What book seemed really popular but you didn’t like?

Hunger Games - It's meh.

6. What five books have you always wanted to read but haven’t got round to?

- Suttree - Cormac McCarthy
- Blade Runner - Philip K. Dick
- The Black Company - Glen Cook
- War and Peace - Leo Tolstoy
- KJV Bible
And goddamn, let me tell you. You beat Lu Bu and think, fuck yeah, I've beaten the motherfucker of all motherfuckers in this game. Buuuttt then you get to He Fei on the Wu Campaign and you remember Zhang Liao being not so hard to beat but sometimes a little annoying.

But nooooooo, in He Fei he's the friggin' second coming of Lu Bu the destroyer of controllers. Gives you that +10 Attack when you kill him too.

Need I also point out the HORRIFYING nature of ARROWS in DW2? Ah, what a game. What a game.
<Snipped quote by Gwynbleidd>
I think I spent the most time with either Dynasty Warriors 3, 4, and 5. A lot of good memories, atrocious voice acting (which steadily improved) or not. Honestly, I think my favorite Dynasty Warriors title is probably Dynasty Warriors 5: Empires over all of them and that's a side title.


5 I didn't like so much for whatever reason, except for Ma Chao because Ma Chao was a goddamn tank of tanks. Never played 3, I almost rented it once but at the time I was a very focused kid who had a very focused desire... that was Dynasty Warriors 2. Lmao, I don't even know why. 4 is the one I probably played most tho. I wouldn't mind a 4 remake with awesome graphics simply because there were more battles. Still. DW2 speaks to me... probably because of that vibrant coloring for uniforms. BRIGHT BLUE. BRIGHT RED. BRIGHT GREEN. God I love it. *goes to play DW2, yes I do have it laying around here*

Hm... What else needs to be said here. Ah, yes...

WHO ELSE SEEKS DEATH?!
I just want a remake of Dynasty Warriors 2 with strong graphics. I don't want the DW7 crazy musou effects and shit where Lu Bu basically is doing a fucking kamehameha.

I've got a lot of nostalgia for DW2, and I can replay that at any time and be perfectly happy mashing buttons mindlessly. Also, that Lu Bu is a MOTHERFUCKER.

+200

*gets Lu Bu to an inch of life, knocks him on his ass*

*FULL LIFE*

.....
I'm just surprised that I SUBSCRIBED to this thing and nobody has managed to make me regret it yet. Guess I gotta wait for all the others to wake up because they have, like, reasonable sleep patterns. Fucking losers.


Ladies and gentleman, I give you... The Devil.
