...that she might be a sufficient reason for young Candide

and he for her

Current Mood: whimsical

I stole this little survey from GabiLady. If you do it, you can only use quotes from songs, books, movies, etc. Fear originality. It is your kryptonite.

Who are you?

"'I am the great sage equal of heaven,' said Monkey"
--Monkey, Wu Cheng En

Where do you come from?

"'Hmmmph.' Vikki was unimpressed. 'Where are we, anyway?'
'We have landed somewhere on the Projective Plain. And it's not as deserted as it seems. It's teeming with wildlife.'
'Wildlife? There isn't so much as an ant!'
'Not so. The Projective Plain is inhabited by lions.'"
--Flatterland, Ian Stewart

"Where the rolling foothills lie, in the sunset's fire"
--Stanford Hymn

What do you look like?

"Imagine a world designed by Kafka, Stalin, Orwell, Huxley, Sartre, and the
Marx Brothers..."
--Paranoia back cover

"Just sort of funny lookin', you know?"
--Fargo

What do you want to be?

"'What would they do to me' he asked in conidential tones, 'if I refused to fly them?'
'We'd probably shoot you,' ex-P.F.C. Wintergreen replied.
'We?' Yossarian cried in surprise. 'What do you mean, we? Since when are you on their side?'
'If you're going to be shot, whose side do you expect me to be on?' ex-P.F.C. Wintergreen retorted."
--Catch-22, Joseph Heller

What can't you do?

"Countin' Flowers on the wall, that don't bother me at all...
Playin' solitaire 'til dawn, with a deck of fifty-one."

What is love?

"I had to go see about a girl"
--Good Will Hunting

What is friendship?

"Doc Daneeka was Yossarian's friend and would do just about nothing to help
him."
--Catch-22, Joseph Heller

"'Dogbert, sometime's I think you're the only one who really cares about me at all.'
'No.'
'Maybe I should just leave this alone while there's still some ambiguity...'"
--Dilbert

Are you strong?

"Some men are born mediocre, some men achieve mediocrity, and some men have
mediocrity thrust upon them. With Major Major it had been all three."
--Catch-22, Joseph Heller

What are you afraid of?

"What about the vacant point in the centre of the upper edge? This is a
neutral point, a sort of no-man's-land between the black and white lines, and
as such it counts for neither player."
--Go for Beginners, Kaoru Iwamoto

"We have to be ruthless! ::stomp::"
--Ruthless People

What comforts you?

"The most formidable weapon against errors of every kind is reason. I have
never used any other, and I trust I never shall."
--Thomas Paine

"But in the present state of psychology and physiology, belief in immortality
can, at any rate, claim no support from science, and such arguments as are
possible on the subject point to the probable extinction of personality at
death. We may regret the thought that we shall not survive, but is a comfort
to think that all the persecutors and Jew-baiters and humbugs will not continue
to exist for all eternity. We may be told that they would improve in time, but
I doubt it."
--Bertrand Russell

What would you tell the person who loves you?

"I'm a huge fan of oral sex. Givin' AND receivin'"
--Colin

What do you want to do?

"He had decided to live forever or die in the attempt."
--Catch-22, Joseph Heller

Who do you love?

"The Cup before her is the Cup of Dreams, or spiritual mystery and imagination. She seems to offer it to us, and we can imagine her telling us to drink from it at our own risk."
--from "Queen of Cups", The Vertigo Tarot, Rachel Pollack
