That reminded me of another thing that someone said that I find particularly humorous about the nature of existence.
"Future does not exist, there is only now and even that is in the past, and the past does not matter anymore."

That is a great quote, verszou!

Being the spawn of a diehard Asimov fan, I am familiar with and like this one very much (which I'll put in German because everything always looks more impressive in German): "Mit der Dummheit kämpfen Götter selbst vergebens."

One of my favourite movie scenes...

- Man bumps into a "lady", spilling a drink on her dress.
- She gestures at herself: 'Who pays for this?'
- "Who wouldn't?"

And I recently had the singular pleasure of telling a particularly handsome devil, "You remind me of a man..."

He got the reference. Devils usually do. coopdevil

Since I'm next to Germany I got that one smile I seem to recall that the title was "The gods themselves" ? and that there was a plot involving time-travel? Must have been at least 25 years since I read it smile

Donne is referenced in a lot of anatomy texts which is the main reason I even recognized the name. His descriptions are impressive. I'm still partial to Richard Selzer though. His writing takes my breath away.

----

"Women are physics and chemistry. They are matter. It is their bodies that tell of the frailty of men. Men have not their cellular, enzymatic wisdom.

Man is albuminoidal, pertinacious, laked pearl; woman is yolky, ovoid, rich. Both are exuberant bloody growths.

I would use the defects and deformities of each for my sacred purpose of writing, for I know that it is the marred and scarred and faulty that are subject to grace." ~ The Exact Location of the Soul
----

And this is from my all-time favourite essay ever...

"Ah, but there is more to the skull than helmet to the brain, to the sternum than shield to the heart, to the ribs than staves of the thorax. The rest of flesh is transient, strung like laundry upon a lattice.

To dwell upon bone is to contemplate the fate of man. Bone is the keepsake of the earth, all that remains of a man when the rest has long since melted and seeped and crumbled away.

It endures for a million years and, if then dug up from the ground, suggests still to anthropologists the humps of meat that once it wore, and to poets the much that was from the little that remains." ~ Bone

“The concept of absurdity is something I'm attracted to.” - David Lynch

I had this one up for a while:

"Man isn't a noble savage, he's an ignoble savage. He is irrational, brutal, weak, silly, unable to be objective about anything where his own interests are involved—that about sums it up. I'm interested in the brutal and violent nature of man because it's a true picture of him. And any attempt to create social institutions on a false view of the nature of man is probably doomed to failure." - Stanley Kubrick
