What you find here is a part of me now, or was a part of me in the past.
Those who know me will know the difference.
I hold the line, the line of strength that pulls me through the fear.
(From "San Jacinto" by Peter Gabriel)
Maybe there will come a day when those that you keep blind will suddenly realize.
(From "Ruiner" by Nine Inch Nails)
Consider again that dot. That's here. That's home. That's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every "superstar", every "supreme leader", every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there — on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.
(Carl Sagan, my homeboy)
