He shook his head. “A skeptic is only interested in being right. I’m interested in finding the truth.”

“Even if there’s a chance your theories are wrong?”

What is the fear? It is something to do with death and time and age. Simply: I am eighteen in my mind I am eighteen and if I do nothing if I stand still nothing will change. I will be eighteen always. For always. Time will stop. I’ll never die. Very banal, this fear. Everyone has it these days.

D’Artagnan, the original playa:

Do not depend upon me, madame, for the next meeting; since my convalescence I have so many affairs of this kind on my hands, that I am forced to regulate them a little. When your turn comes, I shall have the honour to inform you of it. I kiss your hands.

Poor Lady DeWinter (ha!).

Quoted: All My Friends are Superheroes

Okay, there’s this thing you can do, a thing you can do like no other person on this planet. That makes you special, but being special really doesn’t mean anything. You still have to get dressed in the morning. Your shoelaces still break. Your lover will still leave you if you don’t treat her right.
