the quote thread

A place for myself to post the comics storyline in prose form, plus a current comic discussion and most likely some random threads.

"Too much love will kill you
If you can't make up your mind
Torn between the lover
And the love you leave behind
You're headed for disaster
'cos you never read the signs
Too much love will kill you
Every time."
--Queen, "Too Much Love Will Kill You"

Tori Amos (on losing her virginity) wrote:[It was] nice. I was almost 19, it was with somebody about eight years older, and it was really nice. It was a crush thing, and definitely a warm-hearted thing, it was really sweet. Some people talk like either you see fireworks or it was crap, and it wasn't either one, it was just good.

Tori Amos wrote:When I was in Dublin in 1994, right after Kurt Cobain died, I'd just recorded a cover of Smells Like Teen Spirit and when I started it, all the lighters came out and everybody was singing. You'd have thought that it was planned. Thousands of people were singing softly, like a lullaby. It was beautiful. It was almost like we were singing Kurt to bed. It was quite a moment and it was really out of my control. I was a part of something with them.

C. S. Lewis wrote:Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those [who] torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.

Tori Amos (on her song Hey Jupiter) wrote:I was going through something in my life, and I felt the presence at the end of my bed of a ghost of someone I recognized. I was in a hotel room in Arizona during the Under the Pink tour. I followed this ghost into the bathroom. I turned on all the water... the shower... I let the room steam up... the water became part of the sound, almost like an orchestra... and this ghost drew a picture for me in the mirror in the steam. The way I interpreted the picture was that Earth and Jupiter were in love billions of years ago, then they were separated, and now they are billions of miles apart, and this is Earth's love song to Jupiter.
