    Re: Zoidberg’s Collection of Quotes

    Who determines what it means to be a success? This stupid society! The main preoccupation of society is to keep society sick! And the sooner you realize that, the better. Sick, every one of them. They are loony, they’re crazy. You became president of the lunatic asylum and you’re proud of it even though it means nothing. Being president of a corporation has nothing to do with being a success in life. Having a lot of money has nothing to do with being a success in life. You’re a success in life when you wake up! Then you don’t have to apologize to anyone, you don’t have to explain anything to anyone, you don’t give a damn what anybody thinks about you or what anybody says about you. You have no worries; you’re happy. That’s what I call being a success. Having a good job or being famous or having a great reputation has absolutely nothing to do with happiness or success. Nothing! It is totally irrelevant. All he’s really worried about is what his children will think about him, what the neighbors will think about him, what his wife will think about him. He should have become famous. Our society and culture drill that into our heads day and night. People who made it! Made what?! Made asses of themselves. Because they drained all their energy getting something that was worthless. They’re frightened and confused, they are puppets like the rest. Look at them strutting across the stage. Look how upset they get if they have a stain on their shirt. Do you call that a success? Look at how frightened they are at the prospect they might not be reelected. Do you call that a success? They are controlled, so manipulated. They are unhappy people, they are miserable people. They don’t enjoy life. They are constantly tense and anxious. Do you call that human? And do you know why that happens? Only one reason: They identified with some label. They identified the “I” with their money or their job or their profession. That was their error.

    “Life is like a movie, if you’ve sat through more than half of it and it’s sucked every second so far, it probably isn’t gonna get great right at the very end for you and make it all worthwhile. No one should blame you for walking out early.” —Doug Stanhope

    Re: Zoidberg’s Collection of Quotes

    For many men, indeed most men, motivation is unquestionably coupled to latent or otherwise obvious reproductive drivers. To maintain consistent motivation throughout life, you correctly identify either the necessity of being blue-pilled, or having elsewise some underlying insecurity. […] if you fully and wholly decouple yourself from the reproductive game, you will almost certainly lose motivation, and you will no longer resemble the person of old that you seem to fondly long for, as if returning to him were an option. If you are this far down the rabbit hole, I can assure you that there is no returning.

    Re: Zoidberg’s Collection of Quotes

    “Why did you come to the Master?”
    “Because my life was going nowhere, giving me nothing.”
    “So where’s it going now?”
    “No where.”
    “And what’s it giving you now?”
    “Nothing.”
    “So, what’s the difference?”
    “Now I’m going nowhere because there’s nowhere to go; I’m getting nothing because there’s nothing to desire.”

    —Anthony de Mello, One Minute Nonsense
