Sheldon Cooper

When you understand the laws of physics, Penny, anything is possible. And may I add: mwuh-ha-ha.

You know, I’m given to understand that there is an entire city in Nevada designed specifically to help people like Howard forget their problems. They replace them with new problems such as alcoholism, gambling addiction, and sexually transmitted diseases.

That is my spot. In an ever-changing world, it is a single point of consistency. If my life were expressed as a function on a four-dimensional Cartesian coordinate system, that spot, at the moment I first sat on it, would be (0,0,0,0).

Leonard: Thank you! Are there any questions?
Yeah. What the hell was that?

This is Doctor Sheldon Cooper. Yeah, I need to cancel my membership to the Planetarium… Well I’m sorry, too, but there’s just no room for you in my wallet… Yeah, I understand, but it was between you and the Museum of Natural History, and frankly, you don’t have dinosaurs… Well, I’ll miss you, too. Bye bye.

I cry because others are stupid, and it makes me sad.

The entire institution of gift-giving makes no sense. Let’s say I go out and I spend $50 on you. It’s a laborious activity because I have to imagine what you need, whereas you know what you need. Now, I could simplify things… just give you the $50 directly, and then you could give me $50 on my birthday, and so on, until one of us dies, leaving the other one old and $50 richer. And I ask you, is it worth it?

Coffee’s out of the question. When I moved to California, I promised my mother that I wouldn’t start doing drugs.

More to come...

INTO THE WILD (2007) by Sean Penn

In memory / Christopher Johnson McCandless / February 12, 1968 - August 18, 1992

I'm going to paraphrase Thoreau here... rather than love, than money, than faith, than fame, than fairness... give me truth.

Christopher McCandless: I'm supertramp.
[looks at apple]
Christopher McCandless: and you're super apple!

If we admit that human life can be ruled by reason, then all possibility of life is destroyed.

The core of mans' spirit comes from new experiences.

What if I were smiling and running into your arms? Would you see then what I see now?

I will miss you too, but you are wrong if you think that the joy of life comes principally from the joy of human relationships. God's place is all around us, it is in everything and in anything we can experience. People just need to change the way they look at things.

When you forgive, you love. And when you love, God's light shines through you.

Mr. Franz I think careers are a 20th century invention and I don't want one.

When you want something in life, you just gotta reach out and grab it.

Happiness only real when shared.

Alaska, Alaska. I'm gonna be all the way out there, all the way fucking out there. Just on my own. You know, no fucking watch, no map, no axe, no nothing. No nothing. Just be out there. Just be out there in it. You know, big mountains, rivers, sky, game. Just be out there in it, you know? In the wild.

Cause, you know what I don't understand? I don't understand why people, why every fucking person is so bad to each other so fucking often. It doesn't make sense to me. Judgment. Control. All that, the whole spectrum. Well, it just...

Two years he walks the earth. No phone, no pool, no pets, no cigarettes. Ultimate freedom. An extremist. An aesthetic voyager whose home is the road. Escaped from Atlanta. Thou shalt not return, 'cause "the West is the best." And now after two rambling years comes the final and greatest adventure. The climactic battle to kill the false being within and victoriously conclude the spiritual pilgrimage. Ten days and nights of freight trains and hitchhiking bring him to the Great White North. No longer to be poisoned by civilization he flees, and walks alone upon the land to become lost in the wild. - Alexander Supertramp May 1992

The sea's only gifts are harsh blows, and occasionally the chance to feel strong. Now I don't know much about the sea, but I do know that that's the way it is here. And I also know how important it is in life not necessarily to be strong but to feel strong. To measure yourself at least once. To find yourself at least once in the most ancient of human conditions. Facing the blind death stone alone, with nothing to help you but your hands and your own head.

The freedom and simple beauty is too good to pass up...

It should not be denied that being footloose has always exhilarated us. It is associated in our minds with escape from history and oppression and law and irksome obligations. Absolute freedom. And the road has always led west.

You are really good. I mean, you're like, a hundred thousand times better than like any apple I've ever had. I'm not Superman, I'm Supertramp and you're super apple. You're so tasty, you're so organic, so natural. You are the apple of my eye, ha!
