Russian exemplar for LIE, but I have my doubts. Anyone read "To Build a Fire" etc?
"Life is not always a matter of holding good cards, but sometimes, playing a poor hand well."
"I am I. And I won't subordinate my taste to the unanimous judgment of mankind."
"You can't wait for inspiration. You have to go after it with a club."
"Show me a man with a tattoo and I'll show you a man with an interesting past."
"Intelligent men are cruel. Stupid men are monstrously cruel."
"Limited minds can recognize limitations only in others."
"The proper function of man is to live, not to exist. I shall not waste my days in trying to prolong them. I shall use my time."
"But this is not a world of free freights. One pays according to an iron schedule--for every strength the balanced weakness; for every high a corresponding low; for every fictitious god-like moment an equivalent time in reptilian slime. For every feat of telescoping long days and weeks of life into mad magnificent instants, one must pay with shortened life, and, oft-times, with savage usury added."
"A million years ago, the cave man, without tools, with small brain, and with nothing but the strength of his body, managed to feed his wife and children, so that through him the race survived. You on the other hand, armed with all the modern means of production, multiplying the productive capacity of the cave man a million times -- you are incompetents and muddlers, you are unable to secure to millions even the paltry amount of bread that would sustain their physical life. You have mismanaged the world, and it shall be taken from you!"
"There is an ecstasy that marks the summit of life, and beyond which life cannot rise. And such is the paradox of living, this ecstasy comes when one is most alive, and it comes as a complete forgetfulness that one is alive."
