All knowledge is based on that which we cannot prove. Will you fight? Or will you perish like a dog?
-Mickey Mouse, rulesofthirds comic
Do you think God lives in heaven because he, too, fears what he has created?
-Dr. Romero, Spy Kids 2
Nobody likes to change. There will always be resistance to change. And the quicker you get to that, the easier it is. It’s not such a difficult thing. If you entrench yourself and go, ‘by God, I will not change. I will not have this.’ Then, you’re a dead man. We’re great at adaptability. It’s our strongest suit.
-Nick Nolte, Collider Interview
You’ve got to make a statement. You’ve got to look inside yourself and say: ‘what am I willing to put up with today?’
-Arin Hanson, Game Grumps (Sonic 06 Part 20)
Whenever you look at another creator or an artist that you respect, you’re only seeing what took them a long time of work and doubt to push through. You never see the struggle behind it. So you think you’re the only one struggling, when in fact, everyone goes through it.
-Danny Sexbang/Avidan, Game Grumps
Too many people have opinions on things they know nothing about. And the more ignorant they are, the more opinions they have.

-Mewtwo, Pokemon: The First Movie
There’s no point in being grown up if you can’t act childish at times.
-Fourth Doctor, Doctor Who (Robot)
God may judge you, but his sins outnumber your own.
Men are props on the stage of life, and no matter how tender, how exquisite… A lie will remain a lie.
-Aldia, Dark Souls 2
“Going clown spotting.”
“Have you checked the mirror?”
“If you want me to die you can just say so.”
-lmaonade and xtec, Tumblr
Then become the dirt I walk on.
To feel sorrow is to deserve peace.
Can you feel your heart burning? Can you feel the struggle within? The fear within me is beyond anything your soul can make. You cannot kill me in a way that matters.
-Mushroom, personsonable’s Tumblr post
You are alone, child. There is only darkness for you, and only death for your people. These ancients are just the beginning. I will command a great and terrible army… and we will sail to a billion worlds. We will sail until every light has been extinguished. You are strong, child. But I am beyond strength.
-Lich, Adventure Time (Escape From The Citadel)
He has already begun painting the picture, now we must decide to finish it.
When someone leaves your life those exits… are… not made equal. Some are beautiful, and poetic, and satisfying. Others are abrupt and unfair, but most are just unremarkable, unintentional, clumsy.
-Griffon McElroy, The Adventure Zone (Ep. 66: The Stolen Century)
You could sooner divert a river from its course than deny my nature.

The man who sleeps with a machete is a fool every night but one.
-Justin McElroy, MBMBAM (Episode 137: Tangentz)
You kneel before my throne unaware it was built on lies.

-Zero, Megaman Zero
If we want the rewards of being loved we have to submit to the mortifying ordeal of being known.
-Tim Kreider, I Know What You Think Of Me
What can one do in the face of such monumental loss but breathe a weary sigh, for the world is a little quieter now.
-Shane Madej, HotDaga (Believe Me, Maizey)

You can’t demand a service while simultaneously degrading those who provide it for you.

Sometimes life puts you in difficult circumstances you didn’t choose, but being happy or unhappy is a choice you make, and I’ve chosen to make the best of things that I can.
-Shahvee, The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim
You don’t have to be alive to make yourself relevant, And you don’t have to be a good person to be a hero. You just have to know who you are, and stay true to that. So I’m going to keep fighting for people the only way I ever knew how, By being me.

Always remember that the crowd that applauds your coronation is the same crowd that will applaud your beheading. People like a show.
-Terry Pratchet, Discworld (Going Postal)
See, Sarah Lynn? We’re not doomed. In the great, grand scheme of things, we’re just tiny specks that will one day be forgotten. So it doesn’t matter what we did in the past, or how we’ll be remembered. The only thing that matters is right now, this moment, this one spectacular moment we are sharing together. Right, Sarah Lynn?
-Bojack Horseman, Bojack Horseman (That’s Too Much, Man)
You know, it’s funny… when you look at someone through rose-colored glasses, all the red flags just look like flags.
-Wanda, Bojack Horseman (Yes And…)
Sometimes, Life’s a Bitch and then you keep living.
-Diane Nyugen, Bojack Horseman (Nice While It Lasted)
You do everything you can to make up for it, knowing that you’ll never succeed in getting rid of the guilt. You devote yourself to spending every second trying to do better despite the fact that it will never be enough. And you pray with every single good act you do that somehow, when your life is over, that you came close to making up for the wrong you committed.
-Watcher, Fallout: Equestria: Project Horizons
I will seize destiny by the throat and force it into the shape of my choosing.
The sins of the ancient burn the souls of the ancestors.
What brings me joy is… life. I think you can find joy anywhere, in life. I think it’s a conscious choice. I think you- you choose joy, in life. And no matter how bad things are, no matter how crummy, no matter how dark. You find joy. I find joy in whatever I do. I don’t always do things right, and I don’t always do things smart. But whatever I do, I find joy in it.
-Clint McElroy, TAZ: Balance

One day, you will be face to face with whatever saw fit to let you exist in the universe, and you will have to justify the space you’ve filled.
I can’t go to Hell. I’m all out of vacation days.
You understand reality while everyone else is running around confused and angry and upset because they think reality is something happening to them rather than something they are making every moment with every thought.
-Terezi Pyrope, Homestuck
What is Heaven but a place where your dreams can’t destroy you.
-Kaveririvon’s dream, Tumblr
Either Sonic is a God, or could kill God, and I do not care if there is a difference.

You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
-Christopher Robin, Winnie The Pooh
Authority should derive from the consent of the governed, not from the threat of force.
-Barbie, Toy Story 3
Love is not a decision, it is a feeling. It would be much easier if we could choose whom we loved, but much less magical.
-Mr. Twig, South Park
We do have a lot in common. The same Earth, the same air, the same sky. Maybe if we started looking at what’s the same instead of what’s different… well who knows?

Everything not saved will be lost.
-Nintendo Quit Screen Message
What is another sin to me? I don’t want to play a game where I can’t see the score.
Nothing’s set in stone, but set in a dirt road. If you roll your wagon in the same path too much it’ll soon be the only path you can take without struggling.
I came out here, to this point, to this place, hoping against all hope and despite signs and portends suggesting otherwise that I might, somehow, find myself having a pleasant experience, and yet here I stand, alone against the world, feeling bombarded and assaulted on all fronts, knowing not my enemy’s name, nor his face, nor whether our battle is done.
I’ve got good news. You see, there’s no need to wonder where your god is, ’cause he’s right here! And he’s fresh out of mercy.
-Kirito, Sword Art Online Abridged (Episode 4)
The penance you pay for the way you behave is written as plain as the name on this grave.
-Death, Epic Rap Battles Of History (Ebenezer Scrooge vs. Donald Trump)
Some humans- just as some [us]- are capable of unspeakable acts. But despite all the violence in your history, you have endured, built civilizations, constructed great wonders of technology to broaden your horizons and forge friendships across all manner of divides. I strongly believe that this is not some grand miracle… but merely your own deepest nature, struggling to express itself through the distrust and fear that thousands of years spent living on a harsh, unforgiving world have bred into you.
-Princess Luna, Written in Dust
We both stared into the abyss, but when it looked back… you blinked.
-Owlman, Doomsday Clock
Before there was time, before there was anything, there was nothing. And before there was nothing, there were monsters.

-Dirk Strider and Dirk AR, Homestuck
If you feel like the dumbest person in the room, then you are in the right room.

I’m just a program designed to make ha-ha. A file named Laugh Man.
-Raph Chestang, Collegehumor (A Computer Co-Wrote This Sketch)
“You ever wonder if this is Heaven now? You ever wonder if we’re all just there now and we don’t know it?”
“I’ve thought about that. All of us have. There’s a lot less people who go to church than there used to be, because that’s what a lot of people think. But I don’t think so. But I think about it. And I think, well, I can’t be. Because I’m like you, I kinda look at the big long life ahead of me that stretches out forever and disappears. And I get scared. And I think, ‘This can’t be Heaven if I’m getting scared, right?’ And then I think, ‘maybe I am in Heaven, and Heaven is scary.’”
“…I know exactly what you mean.”
-Eddie and Tim, 17776

Do I drag my carcass to the mountaintop once more? Just to scream a warning that will go unheeded and unheard? Or do I end it?
-Brennan Lee Mulligan, Collegehumor (Tide CEO: Soap Isn’t Medicine)
There can be no bravery, without madness.
-The Ancestor, Darkest Dungeon
Prolong this world’s stasis or face the heart of its infection. I’d urge you to take that harder path, but what end may come, the decision rests with you.
-Hornet, Hollow Knight
It’s always important to remember that every day can be beautiful if you want it to be. Every day starts in the dark…and ends in the dark…but in the middle, there is light.
-Russel Hobbs, The Gorillaz
Decay exists as an extant form of life.
My point is that, if death is certain anyway, what’s the harm in trying to live a little longer? At the very worst, you’ll still end up dead like you wanted, but at best, you might actually be happy.
-DWK, Totally Legit Recap
If all I care about in life is the imprints I make in this world, then the most I’ll ever leave is a grave.
-Lyra Heartstrings, Background Pony
If courage isn’t the absence of fear but doing the right thing regardless of it, maybe confidence isn’t the absence of insecurity but knowing you have real worth despite it.
For strange eons had come to pass, and death itself had indeed finally died, and that which the long dead would have called the real was strange, and the living lived only because of the benevolent grace of an eternal lie.
-Jennifer Diane Reitz, Friendship is Optimal: Caelum Est Conterrens
Pay a man enough, and he’ll walk barefoot into Hell.
-David Xanatos, Gargoyles
The world should have protected you, but you have been asked to protect it. What an honor. What an injustice.
-Beverly Toegold, Not Another DnD Podcast
Anytime someone calls attention to the breaking of gender roles, it ultimately undermines the concept of gender equality by implying that this is an exception and not the status quo.

He didn’t have a word for “home,” but he knew it was something to be defended.
-Ogre Resister Card, Magic: The Gathering
There’s a certain nobility in lying in bed all day wishing things weren’t the way they are.
-Patrick Bovin, Two Best Friends Play Resident Evil 3: Nemesis
Everybody needs their own messiah, but at some point he’s getting nailed up, and how you deal with that is a measure of your maturity.
-Mr Regular, Regular Car Reviews (1994 Dodge Viper Review)
I wanted rain and I thought the best way to do that was to make god cry.

I picked a whole fuckin’ bouquet of whoopsie-daisies.
-anarchetypal’s cousin, Tumblr
You can’t be nice to everyone because being nice to certain people is inherently cruel to others.
One day you’ll decompose and I’ll be there to watch it happen.
I forgive but I will never, ever forget. Don’t mistake my kindness for gullibility.
Even fate picks its favourites.
Confidence! A fool’s substitute for intelligence!
-Dr. Ivo Robotnik, Sonic the Hedgehog (2020)
Not everything in life is perfect, but everything perfect is in life.
-Michelle Obama, one-time-i-dreamt
Flowers wither away. Jewelry are simply stones, decorated with fake beauty. I can give you something pure. Honest and undying love.
A world without forgiveness is a world without compromise and a world without compromises is a world without life, for even a simple-minded beast may forgive its transgressors to share a watering hole in the middle of a drought.
“You played me!”
“Like the cheap kazoo you are.”
To your battle stations, boys! It’s time to line up and see who’s tall enough for the roller coaster to hell! Some of us may not survive this, but the ones that do will get the ultimate reward…. paid.
