“He who controls others may be powerful, but he who has mastered himself is mightier still.”
Hi! My name is Aleksandr. I'm your standard (as standard as it gets, anyway...) wierdo, gamer, self-proclaimed self-righteous hypocrite and general arschloch. I'm also rather lazy, and my work ethic is rather pathetic when it comes to things not related to school or work... and even there, I have to be either a) interested in the subject, or b) in the throes of an OCD fit. So, yeah...
"I went to god just to see, and there I stood, looking back at me;
From that summit, I looked down on our lives, and saw that heaven and hell were lies;
Divinity is something I truly despise,
Because when I'm god... ...everyone dies."
"If knowledge is power, and power corrupts, then does knowledge corrupt?"
"My own personal motto: Laziness is nothing more than the habit of resting before you get tired."
-pudgypudge, author of 'The Melt'
"It's not really paranoia when they're really out to get you."
"Ideas are not swords you can brandish about in triumph. What matters most is the Sit Down, Shut Up, And Get It Done. Only there will you find the true steel for your craft. Only there, will you know if you are worth the words out of your mouth."
>Question: "You don't think it's better for people to just judge you as you are? Don't you find all the byplay just so… fake?"
>Answer: "What is a lie but just one more image of the world?" "Everything is made up of the perceptions of others. Is a truth fake, even if it is built of a million tiny lies?" "The face I show you is a mask." "Just as the one you show me is a lie crafted of your own mind. Does that make them less real? Does it change our actions? Is it really any less a lie than anything else within our minds?"
-from Xeno-Freak's In the Shadow of Zero.
"Life is going to screw you over no matter what, so screw whoever you can either as preparation or retaliation."
