"Everyone is Stupid Except Me". Tight one time and running low on energy, Darren had to pick a final sentence representative of his person. However hard he tried he could not think of another quote from t.v show, book or movie that well represented him or his thoughts. That's when desperation hit. The boy searched through random quotes from random sources looking for a few words Mrs.Koeltzow would eat up. That's when he realized the absurdity of the situation; [finish]
"Complete the motion if you stumble". The song 'Can't Stop' is chock full of inspirational quotes in cryptic, poetic lyrics. This particular line gives a piece of advice to the listener. Let yourself fall if you trip. You can learn from your mistakes and come back better than before.
"Oh I'm sorry. Did I insult you? Is your body mass somehow tied into your self-worth?". Jim Parson's character Sheldon Cooper realizes his comments may have broken the social convention regarding body image, and brings up a good point. It is kind of silly letting yourself get hurt by who you are. Race, background and other things are nothing to be ashamed of. It doesn't matter what other people think, just do you.
"A little nonsense now and then is relished by the wisest men" These words sung by the late and great Gene Wilder in the 1971 film adaptation of Roald Dahl's "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" remind us that it is okay to have fun every now and then. Life is far too short, and marching through it is just not healthy. One needs to frolic every once and a while.
“Reality exists in the human mind, and nowhere else.” George Orwell's 1949 publication "1984" presents a dystopian Britain functioning under a fictional "English Socialist" government. In the book the population is controlled through heavy surveillance, brainwashing on a massive scale, and intimidation. The inhabitants of Airstrip One (formerly Britain) are forbidden from individual thought, and are shielded from the war ridden outside world. The government tampers with or creates all public information, effectively creating the world for it's inhabitants. In the context, it is used to describe that the world we see exists as we think it does. Animals live, but humans are special in the sense that we go beyond that, creating reasons to live. We build our world on our hopes and dreams, and life would be nothing without the work put into it. Although the meaning in the context of the book is referencing the world being created for the inhabitants of airstrip one, I see it in a different tone.
