What we call random is just patterns we can’t decipher. what we can’t understand we call nonsense. What we can’t read we call gibberish. There is no free will. There are no variables. Chuck Palahniuk,

America’s intellectual community has never been very bright. Or honest. They’re all sheep, following whatever the intellectual fashion of the decade happens to be.

Everyone has to be open minded and tolerant of the things they believe, but God forbid they should ever concede, even for a moment, that someone who disagrees with them might have some fingerhold of truth. Orson Scott Card

The truth is outside of all fixed patterns. Bruce Lee

There are patterns to life. Rhythms. It is so easy, while trapped in just the one life, to imagine that times of sadness or tragedy or failure or fear are a result of that particular existence. That it is a by product of living a certain way, rather than simply living. I mean, it would have made things a lot easier if we understood there was no way of living that can immunise you against sadness. And that sadness is intrinsically part of the fabric of happiness. You can’t have one without the other. Of course, they come in different degrees and quantities. But there is no life where you can be in a state of sheer happiness for ever. And imagining there is just breeds more unhappiness in the life you’re in. Matt Haig

Some opportunities we come across click with our constitutions and set us along a path in life. Steven Pinker

Holly Black

I wanted to trace the lost patterns that came before the world is broken and find the new ones we could make out of the shards. Rebecca Solnit
