By Joe

The quotes I post here are by me if I don’t give a source.

“Perspective is everything.” – Sure, no one’s ever heard me say this, but rest assured–I’ve thought it.

“I don’t appreciate being bastos!” – Josh, Joel, Justine, Joaq and Isabel all know about this, and who said it. XD

“People get divorced because they can’t take the heat–that’s how they get out of the kitchen.” – More randomness.

“It’s not that you’re delaying, it’s that you’re not going as fast as you can.” – said to my mom.

“Fight corny with corny.” – Yet more school randomness. XD

“What’s the point of wearing your favorite rocketship underpants if nobody ever asks to see ’em?” – Calvin, Calvin and Hobbes

“You know about those figures of speech that you see a lot when you read, right? Well, when you write, sometimes you find yourself stuck for an expression, and you make one up. Turns out that you’ve accidentally used a device other people have used in the past, and when you think about the train of thought that led you to that literary device (or whatever it’s called), and you realize that famous authors have done it before, it’s–I don’t know, I guess it feels quite fulfilling.” – Me, on writing fiction

“I’m not a very nice person.” – Me, on me (would be accompanied by a bitter smile if in real life)

“Is it just me, or is it true that when you start writing, you begin to read other people’s writings at a deeper level than you used to, and that’s when you learn to criticize their work? I really have no idea.” – Random philosophizing.

“I find it quite weird that I can sleep at ten in the evening on a school day and feel more tired than if I had slept at midnight.” – More random philosophizing.

“The good thing about having characters of your own is that instead of having to adhere to experiences and qualities of already existing characters, you’re free to shape then in any way you want, because you made them up. This lets you put them in any story you want, especially where other, pre-made characters would be sorely out of character.” – Justifying my not writing fanfiction

“Calvin: Summer is butter on your chin and corn mush between every tooth.
Hobbes: It was nice of your parents to let us eat outside.” – Calvin and Hobbes

“Personally, I find that Calvin and Hobbes is way, way more than just a comic–it illustrates important life lessons, and imparts remarkable wisdom. I can’t explain it very well–read, and you’ll understand. Oh, and it’s loads funny too.” – Why I read Calvin and Hobbes

“Yes, one person can make a difference–it’s just that only so many people have that capacity right now.” – Philosophizing

“Everyone is perfect–but not everyone’s perspective is perfect.” – Wow, I philosophize too much.

“Oh what a tangled web we weave, When first we practice to deceive!” – Sir Walter Scott

“I sometimes ask myself how it came about that I was the one to develop the theory of relativity. The reason, I think, is that a normal adult never stops to think about problems of space and time. These are things which he has thought about as a child. But my intellectual development was retarded, as a result of which I began to wonder about space and time only when I had already grown up.” – Albert Einstein

“For a thin person, I sure eat a lot of fattening food.” – Yes, I know it’s silly.

“Unrequited love is a lot like staying in bed on a school morning: You know it’s stupid of you, and that you’re going to really regret it later–but it feels so damn good at the same time.” – Words of wisdom(?) from me. XD

“A philosopher is one who comes upon some thoughtful observations and shares them with everyone. Someone who shares thoughtless observations with everyone may be called an idiot; one who makes thoughtful observations and keeps them secret may be called a hoarder.” – Is this true, or am I just high?

Joaq: A person’s shadow is longest at dawn and is only again longest at sunset.

Joaq: interpret it how you want to interpret it
Joe: ‘you only leave footprints in the sand if you’re walking’

Joaq: a tree only grows when watered and nutured.
Joaq: and…quoting you
Joaq: when life gives you crap, make fertilizer
Joe: that’s only half the quote
Joe: when life is sh*tty, make fertlizer, sell it, and make a huge profit out of it
Joaq: when life gives you lemons…throw it back at life.

Joe: ‘all that glitters is not gold–and yes, not all gold glitters.’
Joaq: there was this fanmade kirby movie trailer XD
Joaq: and it said

Joaq: “when evil reigns…good…sucks”
Joe: HAHAHAHA” – I bet we were both high at the time.

“You know those awesome connections people make between two seemingly unrelated things? Well, this isn’t one of them.” – LOLz.

“Rama-Kandra: You do not understand.
Neo: I just have never…
Rama-Kandra: …heard a program speak of love?
Neo: It’s a… human emotion.
Rama-Kandra: No, it is a word. What matters is the connection the word implies.” – The Matrix Revolutions

“The Free Will Paradox: There are some things you should not do so as to maintain the free will of others.” – (i.e., killing people. etc.)

Presenting the thoughts and travails of a teenage writer who lives under a rock--albeit a rock with Internet access. Also, videos! Also, my Tumblr.

Check the pages every month or so (Egos, Fiction, Musings, Origins), I usually add stuff little by little (with the possible exception of Fiction, which really depends). Oh, and credits to Joaq for the header image.

by popular demand.
