Just started the fifth season of The West Wing. Took a while before I figured out why this young guy looks so familiar..

Do you know how they catch monkeys in Africa? Hunters throw out sugar cubes so the monkeys get addicted. Then they dig narrow holes, and put in lumps of sugar. Monkey comes along, smells the sugar, sticks his hand in. But the hole’s so small that when he makes a fist, he can’t pull it back out without dropping the sugar. So the hunters are getting closer, and the monkey sees them coming. They throw their nets, and the damn monkey still won’t drop the sugar.

Omar (2013), a film by Hany Abu-Assad.

This guy’s walkin’ down a street when he falls in a hole. The walls are so steep he can’t get out. A doctor passes by and the guy shouts up, “Hey you! Can you help me out?” The doctor writes a prescription, throws it down in the hole, and moves on. Then a priest comes along and the guy shouts up, “Father, I’m down in this hole; can you help me out?” The priest writes out a prayer, throws it down in the hole and moves on. Then a friend walks by. “Hey, Joe, it’s me. Can ya help me out?” And the friend jumps in the hole. Our guy says, “Are ya stupid? Now we’re both down here.” The friend says, “Yeah, but I’ve been down here before and I know the way out.”

“I looked at her and a voice inside me said, we only see starlight because all the stars are bleeding.”
Steven Hall, The Raw Shark Texts (via quotedbook)
“It isn’t just the past we remember, it’s the future too. Fifty per cent of memory is devoted not to what has already happened, but to what will happen next. Appointments, anniversaries, meetings, all the rolling engagements and plans, all the hopes and dreams and ambitions which make up any human life – we remember what we did and also what we will do. Only the knife edge of the present is ‘hard’ to any degree. Past and future are things of the mind, and a mind can be changed.”

Compared to the breadth of knowledge yet to be known… what does your life actually matter?

“The real world is in a much darker and deeper place than this, and most of it is occupied by jellyfish and things. We just happen to forget all that. Don’t you agree?
Two-thirds of earth’s surface is ocean, and all we can see with the naked eye is the surface: the skin.”
— Haruki Murakami, "The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle" (via springingforth)
