"You will all be caught with your diapers down.
That is a promise.
For right here, today. Standing on the very head of my mother, which is now on God's green earth, which everybody who wasn't born in a fucking sewer ought to know and understand to the very marrow of their bones.
There is nowhere, absolutely nowhere, in this god forsaken valley.
I'm talking about from the range of my voice, right here clear out to the goddamn Mojave Desert and beyond that.
None of that area will be called the safety zone.
There will be no safety zone.
I can guarantee you the safety zone will be eliminated.
You will all be extradited to the land of no return."

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.

The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again,

because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause;

who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly

“People fear death even more than pain. It’s strange that they fear death. Life hurts a lot more than death. At the point of death, the pain is over. Yeah, I guess it is a friend.”

“I only remember my father for one month my whole life, when I was 10. And it wasn’t until much later in life that I realized, like, he gave me my first basketball and it was shortly thereafter that I became this basketball fanatic. And he took me to my first jazz concert and it was sort of shortly thereafter that I became really interested in jazz and music. So what it makes you realize how much of an impact [even if it’s only a month] that they have on you. But I think probably the most important thing was his absence I think contributed to me really wanting to be a good dad, you know? Because I think not having him there made me say to myself ‘you know what I want to make sure my girls feel like they’ve got somebody they can rely on.’”

“Yaşanan şeyler ne olur, nerede durur? Hatırlamaya ve belleğe ilişkin eğretilemeler beni kesmiyor. Tozlu tavan arasına girmek, eski bir sandığı açmak, sararmış bir defterin sayfalarını çevirmek filan diyorum, beni kesmiyor. Geçmişimizle bağlantı kurmanın tek yolu hatırlamak mıdır? Başka bir eylem yok mu, olamaz mı?”
