“The aim of every artist is to arrest motion, which is life, by artificial means and hold it fixed so that a hundred years later, when a stranger looks at it, It moves again since it is life. Since man is mortal, the only immortality possible for him is to leave something behind him that is immortal since it will always move. This is the artists way of scribbling “Kilroy was here” on the wall of the final and irrevocable oblivion through which he must someday pass.”—William Faulkner (via fatalistichues) (via quote-book)
“I want to go fishing, and, catch a fish-stick….that would be convenient..
Fish are always eating other fish..if fish could scream, the ocean would be loud as shit.
You would not want to submerge your head..nothing but fish going, ‘Aaaah! Fuck!’”—Mitch Hedberg (via constantflux) (via quote-book)
