"Today, same-sex couples are marrying, under the law, in Massachusetts. Some gays are actually having children born to them. We’ve been asked to remove the phrase “mother” and “father” and replace it with “parent A” and “parent B.” It’s not right on paper. It’s not right in fact. Every child has the right to have a mother and father."
"Romney doesn’t have a clue what 99 percent of the people are going through. He’s never lived on that level. He’s never had to compete for a job or face eviction or struggle to get a college loan. He’s a guy that the old phrase applies to: ‘He was born on third base and thought he hit a triple.’"
"When you begin to touch your heart or let your heart be touched, you begin to discover that it's bottomless, that this heart is huge, vast, and limitless. You begin to discover how much warmth and gentleness is there, as well as how much space."
"In Communism they built walls to keep people in, in Capitalism they build walls to keep people out. In either case it's an obviously pathetic display that the people are either not allowed where they want to go, or that where they are is not where they want to be."
"All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king."
"In the lingering moments before you die, your body releases DMT. The same drug that makes you dream. The same drug found in every living animal. It's not an evolutionary trick to make you survive. Your body is choosing to release this drug now because it believes your fate is too grim for you to comprehend. So you dream. You dream that everything will be fine. You dream that nothing happened. It's in this moment that your body sits across from you. It tells you 'looks like we're not gonna make it this time.' It shares a cigarette with you as you recollect the past before soon parting ways back to the atomic ether. Your body does this because it loves you. You have never met anyone like your body. Your body has been with you everyday, good and bad. It's even kept a journal of your life carved in scars. Your eyelashes always wiped the tears from your eyes."
