It occurred to me that the voracious ambition of humans is never sated by dreams coming true, because there is always the thought that everything might be done better and again.

John Green, The Fault in our Stars

This inhuman place makes human monsters.

Stephen King, The Shining

‘FlashForward’ is definitely not a sci-fi show. It doesn’t have the mythology of ‘Lost.’ We have one major event that happens that you are asked to buy into. After that, you’re dealing with very human ripple effects – how people deal with it and how they come to terms with it.

Sonya Walger

The two elements the traveler first captures in the big city are extra human architecture and furious rhythm. Geometry and anguish.

Federico García Lorca

I finally got Elena to a good place about being a vampire and you two idiots can’t stand that she’s happy because of me.

Damon Salvatore, The Vampire Diaries

The bond effects how you act, not how you feel.

Tyler Lockwood, The Vampire Diaries

If there really is a complete unified theory that governs everything, it presumably also determines your actions. But it does so in a way that is impossible to calculate for an organism that is as complicated as a human being. The reason we say that humans have free will is because we can’t predict what they will do.

Stephen Hawking, A Brief History of Time

I preferred my sister alive, rather than in small bloodless sections. Lovely, almost human of me. Now that was settled: What next?

Dexter Morgan, Darkly Dreaming Dexter

I did not like this feeling of having feelings.

Dexter Morgan, Darkly Dreaming Dexter

Whatever made me the way I am left me hollow, empty inside, unable to feel. It doesn’t seem like a big deal. I’m quite sure most people fake an awful lot of everyday human contact. I just fake it all. I fake it very well, and the feelings are never there.

Dexter Morgan, Darkly Dreaming Dexter
