Lola Rennt

Choke

 "We've taken the world apart, but we have no idea what to do with the pieces. (...)  We've spent so much time judging what other people created that we've created very, very little of our own. (...)  We use criticism as a fake participation."

"If she could just get down to using only her brain stem, she'd be cured.
This would be somewhere beyond happiness and sadness.
You don't see fish agonized by wild mood swings.
Sponges never have a bad day."

"The unreal stuff is more powerful than the real.
Because nothing is as perfect as you can imagine it.
Because it's only intangible ideas, concepts, beliefs, fantasies that last.  Stone crumbles.  Wood rots.  People, well, they die.
But things as fragile as a thought, a dream, a legend, they can go on and on."
