We're defined by our actions, not our words. image

We're defined by our actions, not our words.

My face is mine, my hands are mine, my mouth is mine, but I'm not. I'm yours.

Ben : When you have sex with a woman, be gentle and listen to her. Treat her with respect and dignity even if you don't love her.
Bo : I know.
Ben : Always tell the truth. Always take the high road.
Bo : I know.
Ben : Live each day like it could be your last. Drink it in. Be adventurous, be bold, but savour it. It goes fast.
Bo : I know.
Ben : Don't die.
Bo : I won't.

Rellian : What kind of crazy person celebrates Noam Chomsky's birthday like it's some kind of official holiday? Why can't we celebrate Christmas like the rest of the entire world?
Ben : You would prefer to celebrate a magical fictitious elf, instead of a living humanitarian who's done so much to promote human rights and understanding?

Bo : I just want to go to college.
Ben : You speak six languages. You have high math, theoretical physics! This is what I'm talking about! What the hell are these people going to teach you?
Bo : I know nothing! I know nothing! I am a freak because of you! You made us freaks! And mom knew that! She understood! Unless it comes out of a fucking book, I don't know anything about anything!

Ben : Go talk to them. We got time.
Bo : Ask her what she thinks of the working people creating an armed revolution against the exploiting classes and their state structures?
Ben : Well, Marxists can be just as genocidal as capitalists.
Bo : Or weather or not she's a dialectical materialist and accords primacy to the class struggle?
Ben : Avoid Marxism. Or telling her you're a Trotskyite.
Bo : Trotskyist. Only a Stalinist would call a Trotskyist a Trotskyite. And I'm not a Trotskyist anymore. I'm a Maoist.
Ben : Right. I forgot, sorry.

Ben : First of all, Leslie practiced Buddhism, which to her was a philosophy and not an organized religion. In fact, Leslie abhorred all organized religions. To her, they were the most dangerous fairy tales ever invented, designed to elicit blind obedience, and strike fear into the hearts of the innocent and the uninformed. To her, the only thing worse than death would have been the knowledge that her rotting flesh was to be trapped for all eternity inside a big box, and buried in the middle of a fucking golf course. Although the absurdity of being eulogized by someone that didn't even know her has exactly the kind of comedic flourish that Leslie would have cherished. If nothing else, she had a sense of humor. I want to read something to all of you, so you'll know what I mean.
Ben : Leslie's last will and testament. And I quote, "in the event of my death, I, Leslie Abigail Cash, as a Buddhist, wish to be cremated. My funeral, such as it is, shall be a celebration of the life cycle, with music and dancing. After, it is my expressed desire that my ashes shall be taken to a nondescript location, preferably public and heavily populated. At which point my ashes, promptly and unceremoniously, are to be flushed down the nearest toilet." End quote. Now that's comedy.

Harper : Children don't drink wine.
Ben : In France and other countries, children drink small amounts of wine all the time. It's a digestive. It's not crack.
Nai : What's crack?
Ben : Crack is a crystallized, highly addictive derivative of the stimulant cocaine. In the mid-1980s, it accelerated the decimation of inner-city neighborhoods. Crackheads, some of them kids just like you guys, were killing each other over nothing, over their Nikes.
Nai : They killed each other for Nike? The Greek winged-goddess of victory?

Ben : Rell? Can you flex your fingers? S-T-O-P. Stay calm, Think, Observe, and Plan.
Zaja : If you hit the rocks below you, you'll die from blunt force trauma. Or internal bleeding from massive bone fracturing. Or splenic flexure of the large intestine.
Ben : Yes, thank you, Zaj.

Ben : It's just a penis. Every man has one. We're all animals of the earth.
Nai : Clothes when we eat!
Ben : When you have sex with a woman, be gentle and listen to her. Treat her with respect and dignity, even if you don't love her.
Bo : I know.
Ben : Always tell the truth. Always take the high road.
Bo : I know.
Ben : Live each day like it could be your last. Drink it in. Be adventurous, be bold, but savor it. It goes fast.
Bo : I know.
Ben : Don't die.
Bo : I won't.

Harper : I'm sorry it doesn't live up to your high standards!
Ben : I tell the truth to my kids. I don't lie to my kids.
Harper : Protecting children from certain concepts that they are too young to understand is not lying to them!

Ben : When you have sex with a woman, be gentle and listen to her. Treat her with respect and dignity even if you don't love her.

Ben : Vesp? How you getting along?
Vespyr : I just finished chapter 12, "The World on a String."
Vespyr : What?
Ben : Are you having any trouble with Quantum Entanglement? Planck length versus Planck time?
Vespyr : I'm fine.
Ben : Good. Then tomorrow after lunch, you can give a brief presentation on M-theory. Argue counterpoints with Bo and Rell vis-a-vis Witten and Dirac.
