Empire had the better ending. I mean, Luke gets his hand cut off, finds out Vader's his father, Han gets frozen and taken away by Boba Fett. It ends on such a down note. I mean, that's what life is, a series of down endings. All Jedi had was a bunch of Muppets.

I have stolen princesses back from sleeping barrow kings. I burned down the town of Trebon. I have spent the night with Felurian and left with both my sanity and my life. I was expelled from the University at a younger age than most people are allowed in. I tread paths by moonlight that others fear to speak of during day. I have talked to gods, loved women, and written songs that make the minstrels weep. You may have heard of me.

Folks want badly to believe in something bigger. Because the scariest god you can imagine don't care. It's as cold and indifferent as the blackest corner of space. A god of nothing. That's why somebody's always trying to take control. In a family. In an office. On a court or in a chapel. In a battlefield or a statehouse. Make order and meaning out of all that nothing. And there's no better way to get people to kneel and weep at your altar than punishment. Every would-be god is a punisher.

You only get one life, so why not live deliciously? I like to imagine the afterlife is a plump peach with a bite taken out of it. Heaven is a bottomless bath of wine. My bible is written in song and poetry. I worship with Bacchus, baby, at the pulpit of pleasure. If you dare to offer me misery, I'll give you a sword to the stomach in return. I would much prefer to thrust in ecstasy -- so join me there instead?

Mockingbirds don’t do one thing but make music for us to enjoy... but sing their hearts out for us. That’s why it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird.

Light thinks it travels faster than anything but it is wrong. No matter how fast light travels, it finds the darkness has always got there first, and is waiting for it.

For me, I am driven by two main philosophies, know more today about the world than I knew yesterday. And along the way, lessen the suffering of others. You'd be surprised how far that gets you.
