Thermodynamic miracles… events with odds against so astronomical they’re effectively impossible, like oxygen spontaneously becoming gold. I long to observe such a thing. And yet, in each human coupling, a thousand million sperm vie for a single egg. Multiply those odds by countless generations, against the odds of your ancestors being alive; meeting; siring this precise son; that exact daughter… Until your mother loves a man she has every reason to hate, and of that union, of the thousand million children competing for fertilization, it was you, only you, that emerged. To distill so specific a form from that chaos of improbability, like turning air to gold… that is the crowning unlikelihood. The thermodynamic miracle. ~ #DrManhattan #Watchmen #comics #dc #dccomics #physics #miracle #theology
Anyone and anything limiting the freedom of others in the name of equality or “gay rights” is my enemy; a gang of weepy hand-wringing liberals drunken with victim mentalities who value feelings and sensitivity more than pure, untarnished liberty. The sad fact is that most gays are either ignorant of it or too self-righteous to admit that they think their feelings are more important than the freedom of others. #politics #equality #government #hrc #lgbt #gayrights #politics
They teach you a lot in school; everything from the alphabet to economics. But they don’t teach you about heartbreak. How could anyone? It has to be experienced to be understood. Not the heartbreak of puppy love or a high school breakup; no, the heartbreak of meeting someone who absolutely changes everything, having them, and losing them. I could take this as an opportunity to mourn and plea for sympathy, but I won’t. Rather, let my pain be a lesson: don’t take love for granted. Some of you know what I’m talking about. It’s to those of you who don’t that I’m speaking. Someday, you will find someone who will make your life better for no other reason than that they’re in it. When you do, no matter how rocky it gets (and if it’s real, it will have rocky moments) do everything you can to make it work. If you do and it falls apart then it wasn’t meant to be. But if you don’t and you lose them, you’ll spend much time (as I have and still am) looking and waiting for that rare, god sent person who measures up to or surpasses your old flame. I know I can’t prepare you for all of these things, but maybe my words can help. And for those of you who have lost their someone and are looking and waiting as I am: be strong. I know where you are and I know those memories and feelings you have when you’d give anything to have them back. Don’t stop looking, but don’t stop enjoying the roses, either. The world is beautiful, you are beautiful, and you have much unseen beauty to show the world.
I know my fate. One day my name will be associated with the memory of something tremendous—a crisis without equal on earth, the most profound collision of conscience, a decision that was conjured up against everything that had been believed, demanded, hallowed so far. I am no man, I am dynamite. ~Fridrich Nietzsche (Ecce Homo, “Why I am a Destiny”, 1) #superman #nietzsche #philosophy #dynamite #german #deutscher
