  • Ursula Le Guin has been a hero of mine for 20 years. She's done so much, and she will continue to do good even though she's gone. I honestly don't know what I would have become if it weren't for Ursula Le Guin. The first time I read "A Wizard of Earthsea" I realized how balance could be even more epic than war. Suddenly, Fantasy wasn't just wish fulfillment and grandeur, it was real and complex.


  • We often just accept the things that we like and complain a lot about the things that we don't like. But if we could, like, intensely dwell on the really great things in life the way we intensely dwell on the negative things in life. I think that would be fantastic.
  • I like three-legged dogs, because if I was missing a leg I would be like: „URGH, life sucks when missing a leg. Slow down! I can't walk that fast, I'm missing a freaking leg!!“ And dogs? No! A three legged dog is on it. Exactly the same amount of happy as a four-legged dog! That's why I like three-legged dogs. They have taken their three-leggedness and they embrace it.
  • So you go on and on, with this intellectual fly down, your underwear exposed, and toilette paper hanging out the back of your pants.
  • But the truth of the matter is, to live a good life, as a good person, it doesn't matter how you got there. It just matters that you do.
  • I think it's pretty ridiculous to sit back and think that we've changed the horse so much, without realizing that they have changed us an awful lot too.
  • The way that we look does not have anything to do with the way that we sound, or the way that we are.

We like to think so, in fact we like to think so so much that we tend to dress up like people that we are similar to. We all kind of wear uniforms.

  • So the president is like, "Well, once upon a time it was Congress's job to decide whether or not we attacked countries, so let's let them decide." Which is funny, because, as we all know, if Congress were on fire, Congress could not pass the "Pour Water on Congress Act".


  • We've got to keep 6 billion people happy without destroying our planet. It's the biggest challenge we've ever faced....but we're taking it on.

Dear Hank and John[edit]

  • Hank: "If you just say enough things, some of them will end up on those quote websites." // John: "Which, of course, is the point of being a person."


  • I thought what would I give, if it could be true
    If I could ever feel again the way I felt when I read you
  • For years this rule has kept me out of hopeless despair:
    You simply do not feel what is always there.
    I ask my brain to entertain that pain is the same,
    that if I feel it all the time, can you really call it pain?
