A daily dose of creative suspense.

Freedom to be

• You risk tears if you let yourself be tamed.- Antoine de Saint-Exupéry (1900-1944), The Little Prince

• “Every now and then, say ‘What the fuck!’ ‘What the fuck’ gives you freedom. Freedom brings opportunity. Opportunity makes your future.”

• “I’m Tony Montana. You fuck with me, you fuckin’ with the best!” Scarface (1983)

• “…Remember, no matter where you go, there you are.”The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension (1984)

• “I can’t take it anymore, Felix. I’m crackin’ up. Everything you do irritates me. And when you’re not here, the things I know you’re gonna do when you come in irritate me. You leave me little notes on my pillow. I told you 158 times – I cannot stand little notes on my pillow. ‘We are all out of Corn Flakes. F.U.’ It took me three hours to figure out that ‘F.U.’ was Felix Unger. It’s not your fault, Felix. It’s a rotten combination, that’s all.”The Odd Couple (1968)

• “Please, sir. I want some more.” Oliver! (1968)

• “I understand a lot of people enjoy being dead. But they’re not dead, really. They’re just backing away from life. Reach out. Take a chance. Get hurt even. Play as well as ya can. Go team, go! Give me an L. Give me an I. Give me a V. Give me an E. L-I-V-E. LIVE! Otherwise, you got nothin’ to talk about in the locker room.~Harold and Maude 1971

• “Greet the dawn with a breath of fire.” ~Harold and Maude 1971

• I make everyone believe that I like to be different, but really I just don’t know how to fit in.

• Be yourself is about the worst advice you can give to some people

• He who trims himself to suit everyone will soon whittle himself away.~Raymond Hull

• All my life I had been looking for something, and everywhere I turned someone tried to tell me what it was. I accepted their answers too, though they were often in contradiction and even self-contradictory. I was naive. I was looking for myself and asking everyone except myself questions which I, and only I, could answer. It took me a long time and much painful boomeranging of my expectations to achieve a realization everyone else appears to have been born with: that I am nobody but myself.~Ralph Ellison

• Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else’s opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation.~Oscar Wilde
