"Even if it were true that evolution, or the teaching of evolution, encouraged immorality, that would not imply that the theory of evolution was false."

Your anger is...unbecoming.

This world does not owe you anything.

We do not have time for this.

I have become convinced that "the wisdom of age" is not nearly as critical to an individual's development as it is believed to be. This sort of wisdom is only valuable in retrospect; only after you have made mistakes. What many people fail to acknowledge is that a carefully conditioned intellect and a bit of critical thinking can provide you with the tools to predict and learn from your mistakes before you actually make them.

"The way that you drive is so interesting, Hayden."

"What do you mean?"

"I...well, I don't even know that 'drive' is the right word."

"You don't drive this car. You wear it."

I seem to have lost my taste for alcohol.

It reminds me...

It reminds me of the way that she looked at me.

Of the sensation of her body against my skin.

The substance once offered me clarity.

A welcome release from a world of hollow distraction.

But now it just makes me sick.

"I have become convinced I am not alone here, even though I am equally sure it is simply a delusion brought upon by circumstance. I do not, for instance, remember where I found the candles, or why I took it upon myself to light such a strange pathway. Perhaps it is only for those who are bound to follow."
