"I have to believe in a world outside my own mind. I have to believe that my actions still have meaning, even if I can't remember them. I have to believe that when my eyes are closed, the world's still there. Do I believe the world's still there? Is it still out there? . . . Yeah. We all need mirrors to remind ourselves who we are. I'm no different." —Memento, 2000


"May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome, dangerous, leading to the most amazing view. May your mountains rise into and above the clouds. May your rivers flow without end, meandering through pastoral valleys tinkling with bells, past temples and castles and poets' towers into a dark primeval forest where tigers belch and monkeys howl, through miasmal and mysterious swamps and down into a desert of red rock, blue mesas, domes and pinnacles and grottoes of endless stone, and down again into a deep vast ancient unknown chasm where bars of sunlight blaze on profiled cliffs, where deer walk across the white sand beaches, where storms come and go as lightning clangs upon the high crags, where something strange and more beautiful and more full of wonder than your deepest dreams waits for you --- beyond that next turning of the canyon walls." - Edward Abbey

Symphony of Science

Pure Snow

"This is pure snow! Do you have any idea what the street value of this mountain is?"

"Greendale is a bodaciously small town . . . A fly speck on the map, a rest stop on the way to the ski slope. I can't even get real drugs here!"

"I've been going to this high school for 7 1/2 years. I'm no dummy. I know high school girls."

"You ski the K-12 dude and girls will go sterile just looking at you!"

"Outrageous! This is pure snow! It's everywhere! I think I just froze the left half of my brain!"

—Charles De Mar, Better Off Dead, 1985

After Dark, My Sweet

"When a man stops caring what happens, all the strain is lifted from him. Suspicion and worry and fear, all things that twist his thinking out of focus are brushed aside, and he can see people exactly as they are at last—as I saw Fay then: weak and frightened but basically as good as a person could be and hating herself for not being better. Suddenly, the only thing that mattered was that she live, it was the only way my having lived would make any sense. It was why I had been made like I was - to do something for her that she could not do for herself, and then to protect her so that she could go on, so that she could have the reason for living that I’d never had."
