Here are some more random thoughts. As with my previous post, most of these are dialogue ideas for some form of entertainment (e.g. comics, games, films, short stories, books, etc.).
When you pee into someone’s drinking water, you create the probability that you are going to drink it.
The less you want the more you have, and the more you want the less you have.
Relax, the world hasn’t ended. There are still children eating ice cream and children starving.
There’s nothing wrong with having sexual desires or creating sexy characters. The problem is that too many creators do not keep it separate from their professional work.
The minimum price for freedom is responsibility. Even with creative freedom. You have to create responsibly, and take responsibility for what you create.
A: A good teacher should always be a student. Eager to learn and excited to be proven wrong.
B: Screw that. I know everything and hate it when people try to prove me wrong.
When you do something good or bad, the pendulum swings away from you. When it returns it will either knock an obstacle out of you path, or knock your head off.
A: What happened to your passion for your art?
B: It died in the trenches during the never-ending war of paying bills.
I realised most of the things I complained about were direct or indirect results of choices I made. Essentially I was complaining about my choices. So I stopped complaining.
For example, if I complained about work, I was actually complaining about the consequences of my choice to do the work. So I was really complaining about my choice, not about the work.
There will always be wars as long as people don’t have inner peace.
Your defeat is only as big as your ego.
If stupidity was solid, you’d be bulletproof.
But it’s not.
There’s an infinite number of coincidences. We only notice the ones that have relevance to us.

Loan shark: If you save a moth from a spider’s web then the spider will starve.
If this entire planet was made out of shit, you’d be the worst piece of shit.
Every war begins with someone’s greed. Usually a politician’s.
A: I heard a rumour our captain’s looking for a navigator.
B: Our ship has at least a dozen people who can use the navigation computer. Why does she need a navigator?
A: Maybe we’re going to an uncharted region of space.
You are a prisoner and your own jailer.
Then it hit me like the comet that wiped out the dinosaurs.
Poverty and extreme wealth can both leave a mark on you.
(Points to chest, then points to rest of the world.)
When you’ve got what you need in here, then there’s not much you need out there.
You can choose to be a blade of grass that bends with every wind, huddled among all the other grass.
Or you can choose to be a tall, powerful tree.
My humour is a lonely humour.
Nobody laughs at my jokes.
A: The most difficult thing I’ve had to do in my life was to accept that the world in my mind is different from the real world.
A: You mean you had to accept you loco?
A: Yes. I suppose so. Pass the tea.

Last night I dreamt I was having an argument with a zombie. She thought it was OK to kill people and turn them into zombies, because they would still be alive, just a different life. I argued it’s not about being alive or undead, it’s about choosing which life you want to live. If you make them undead against their will, then you take away their freedom to choose.
The dream started with me on a train and then some zombies got on the train. I got off and walked to a human settlement. When I got to the settlement I sat down, took off my shoes, and shook sand out of my shoes and socks. A few zombies came to the settlement looking for me. They wanted me to give them a tour of the settlement. So I took them on a tour.
I showed them a circus tent that was being dismantled and told them that they missed the circus, but they can catch it some other day. As we continued on the walk, a zombie killed 2 people and I shouted at him to stop killing. He killed them by simply touching their bare skin with his hand. He was very nonchalant about it. That’s when I started having the argument with the other zombie.
In the end she seemed to agreed with me, but I wasn’t sure.
The argument in the dream sounded familiar. Maybe I saw a zombie movie which had a similar argument, or a movie about bringing people back from the dead against their will.
