Reality continues to ruin my life.
It's not denial. I'm just selective about the reality I accept.
Sometimes when I'm talking, my words can't keep up with my thoughts. I wonder why we think faster than we speak. Probably so we can think twice.
You know, Hobbes, some days even my lucky rocket ship underpants don't help.
I'm killing time while I wait for life to shower me with meaning and happiness.
People think it must be fun to be a super genius, but they don't realize how hard it is to put up with all the idiots in the world.
When life gives you lemons, chunk it right back.
CALVIN: This whole Santa Claus thing just doesn't make sense. Why all the secrecy? Why all the mystery? If the guy exists why doesn't he ever show himself and prove it? And if he doesn't exist what's the meaning of all this? HOBBES: I dunno. Isn't this a religious holiday? CALVIN: Yeah, but actually, I've got the same questions about God.
Hobbes: Do you think there's a God? Calvin: Well, somebody's out to get me!
To invent your own life's meaning is not easy, but it's still allowed, and I think you'll be happier for the trouble.
If you can't control your peanut butter, you can't expect to control your life.
CALVIN: When I grow up I want to be an inventor. First I will invent a time machine. Then I'll come back to yesterday and take myself to tomorrow and skip this dumb assignment.
CALVIN: As usual goodness hardly puts up a fight.
In the short term, it would make me happy to go play outside. In the long term, it would make me happier to do well at school and become successful. But in the VERY long term, I know which will make better memories.
Isn't it sad how some people's grip on their lives is so precarious that they'll embrace any preposterous delusion rather than face an occasional bleak truth?
HOBBES: Virtue needs some cheaper thrills.
HOBBES: If you don't get a goodnight kiss you get Kafka dreams.
Weekends don't count unless you spend them doing something completely pointless.
In my opinion, we don't devote nearly enough scientific research to finding a cure for jerks.
As far as I'm concerned, if something is so complicated that you can't explain it in 10 seconds, then it's probably not worth knowing anyway.
