emptiness

Education is not a discipline at all. Half vocational, half an emptiness dressed up in garments borrowed from philosophy, psychology, literature.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Religion is the dream of the human mind. But even in dreams we do not find ourselves in emptiness or in heaven, but on earth, in the realm of reality; we only see real things in the entrancing splendor of imagination and caprice, instead of in the simple daylight of reality and necessity.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Bowed by the weight of centuries he leans upon his hoe and gazes on the ground, the emptiness of ages in his face, and on his back the burden of the world.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Loving can cost a lot but not loving always costs more, and those who fear to love often find that want of love is an emptiness that robs the joy from life.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Powhatan: This is what we feared. The paleface is a demon / The only thing they feel at all is greed.
Kekata: Beneath that milky hide, there's emptiness inside.
Warriors: I wonder if they even bleed.
Warriors: [all] They're savages, savages, barely even human. Savages, savages
Powhatan: Killers at the core.
Kekata: They're different from us, which means they can't be trusted.
Powhatan: We must sound the drums of war!More [06/29/2007 12:06:00]
Alien: You're an interesting species. An interesting mix. You're capable of such beautiful dreams, and such horrible nightmares. You feel so lost, so cut off, so alone, only you're not. See, in all our searching, the only thing we've found that makes the emptiness bearable, is each other.More [08/01/2007 12:08:00]
Angelica: Would you like to hear one of my poems?
Joe Banks: Sure.
Angelica: Long ago, the delicate tangles of his hair... covered the emptiness of my hand... Would you like to hear it again?
Joe Banks: Ok.
Angelica: Long ago, the delicate tangles of his hair... covered the emptiness of my hand.More [05/13/2008 12:05:00]
General Jack D. Ripper:
Mandrake, do you realize that in addition to fluoridating water, why, there are studies underway to fluoridate salt, flour, fruit juices, soup, sugar, milk... ice cream. Ice cream, Mandrake, children's ice cream.



Group Capt. Lionel Mandrake:
Lord, Jack.



General Jack D. Ripper:
You know when fluoridation first began?



Group Capt. Lionel Mandrake:
I... no, no. I don't, Jack.



General Jack D. Ripper:
Nineteen hundred and forty-six. Nineteen forty-six, Mandrake. How does that coincide with your post-war Commie conspiracy, huh? It's incredibly obvious, isn't it? A foreign substance is introduced into our precious bodily fluids without the knowledge of the individual. Certainly without any choice. That's the way your hard-core Commie works.



Group Capt. Lionel Mandrake:
Uh, Jack, Jack, listen, tell me, tell me, Jack. When did you first... become... well, develop this theory?



General Jack D. Ripper:
Well, I, uh... I... I... first became aware of it, Mandrake, during the physical act of love.



Group Capt. Lionel Mandrake:
Hmm.



General Jack D. Ripper:
Yes, a uh, a profound sense of fatigue... a feeling of emptiness followed. Luckily I... I was able to interpret these feelings correctly. Loss of essence.



Group Capt. Lionel Mandrake:
Hmm.



General Jack D. Ripper:
I can assure you it has not recurred, Mandrake. Women uh... women sense my power and they seek the life essence. I, uh... I do not avoid women, Mandrake.



Group Capt. Lionel Mandrake:
No.



General Jack D. Ripper:
But I... I do deny them my essence.

Maggie Stone:
I wonder if it's the number of nights that really matter. I mean, love, it's more than just the physical part. It's whether or not you connect. You can't plan who you fall in love with.



Jamie Martin:
Well, how do you even know if it's real? I mean, so many people fall in love and go through the motions, but it's not even close.



Maggie Stone:
Maybe some people don't even get to have it.



Jamie Martin:
Or they don't recognize it when it comes along.



Maggie Stone:
Or when you do finally get it so deep it's a part of you, only to have it taken away. You know, when I - when we couldn't find Bianca, I experienced an emptiness I've never felt before, I mean, like what it would be like if Bianca had never surfaced again. I had to put that out of my mind. I had to forget it.



Jamie Martin:
It's complicated - love. It's so unique every time, with every person. And when the real thing comes along, I guess we just have to hope we see it.



Maggie Stone:
Or hold onto it.

Allan:
That's quite a lovely Jackson Pollock, isn't it?



Museum Girl:
Yes, it is.



Allan:
What does it say to you?



Museum Girl:
It restates the negativeness of the universe. The hideous lonely emptiness of existence. Nothingness. The predicament of Man forced to live in a barren, Godless eternity like a tiny flame flickering in an immense void with nothing but waste, horror and degradation, forming a useless bleak straitjacket in a black absurd cosmos.



Allan:
What are you doing Saturday night?



Museum Girl:
Committing suicide.



Allan:
What about Friday night?

G'mork:
If you come any closer, I will rip you to shreds.



Atreyu:
Who are you?



G'mork:
I am G'mork. And you, whoever you are, can have the honor of being my last victim.



Atreyu:
I will not die easily. I am a warrior!



G'mork:
Ha! Brave warrior, then fight the Nothing.



Atreyu:
But I can't! I can't get beyond the boundaries of Fantasia!


[G'mork laughs and Atreyu gets a little angry]



Atreyu:
What's so funny about that?



G'mork:
Fantasia has no boundaries.


[Laughs]



Atreyu:
That's not true! You're lying.



G'mork:
Foolish boy. Don't you know anything about Fantasia? It's the world of human fantasy. Every part, every creature of it, is a piece of the dreams and hopes of mankind. Therefore, it has no boundaries.



Atreyu:
But why is Fantasia dying, then?



G'mork:
Because people have begun to lose their hopes and forget their dreams. So the Nothing grows stronger.



Atreyu:
What is the Nothing?



G'mork:
It's the emptiness that's left. It's like a despair, destroying this world. And I have been trying to help it.



Atreyu:
But why?



G'mork:
Because people who have no hopes are easy to control; and whoever has the control... has the power!



Atreyu:
Who are you, really?



G'mork:
I am the servant of the power behind the Nothing. I was sent to kill the only one who could have stopped the Nothing. I lost him in the Swamps of Sadness. His name... was Atreyu.


[the ground shakes again and Atreyu is knocked down. He grabs a knife shaped piece of broken stone and stands up, ready to fight]



Atreyu:
If we're about to die anyway, I'd rather die fighting! Come for me, G'mork! *I* am Atreyu!

Falkor:
The Emptiness has found its way into Bastian's head?



Atreyu:
It's Auryn, isn't it? It works differently with humans than with us...?



Falkor:
Because humans need memories.

Atreyu:
A few more wishes, and the Emptiness will possess *you*!

Sally Owens:
[Sally's letter to Gillian] Sometimes I feel like there's a hole inside of me, an emptiness that at times seems to burn. I think if you lifted my heart to your ear, you could probably hear the ocean. The moon tonight, there's a circle around it. Sign of trouble not far behind. I have this dream of being whole. Of not going to sleep each night, wanting. But still sometimes, when the wind is warm or the crickets sing... I dream of a love that even time will lie down and be still for. I just want someone to love me. I want to be seen. I don't know. Maybe I had my happiness. I don't want to believe it but, there is no man, Gilly. Only that moon.

Bianca:
People expect me to be there!



Walter Stratford:
Kat's not going, you're not going!



Bianca:
Why can't you be normal?



Kat Stratford:
Define normal.



Bianca:
Bogey Lowenstein's party is normal.



Walter Stratford:
What's a Bogey Lowenstein?



Kat Stratford:
Bogey's party is just a lame excuse for all the idiots at our school to drink beer and rub up against each other in hopes of distracting themselves from the pathetic emptiness of their meaningless...



Bianca, Chastity:
...meaningless, consumer-driven lives.

Virgil Travis:
I am nothing. I am an emptiness, and like all emptiness I struggle perpetually to be filled. I draw in wealth, power, sensation, but still I am empty. Still I am nothing. Take care, Miss Yulin, lest you be sucked in as well.

Viconia:
I miss the customs of my homeland, like the breaking in of new pleasure slaves. The largest and strongest were the hardest to break, but they were the most rewarding. Sarevok, I find your great size... intriguing.



Sarevok:
Were you to break me Viconia, you might find nothing but the chill emptiness of the grave within.



Viconia:
That does not repulse me as you might imagine. We drow are ever eager to broaden our... experience.



Sarevok:
I orchestrated a war to slaughter thousands. I have felt the cold embrace of death. I have witnessed the horrors of the abyss. But you, Viconia... you scare me.



Viconia:
Cowards everywhere I turn! If you find your courage, Sarevok, seek me out.

Michael Charles Novotny:
You'll have to stay forever young without me.

Calm down, I'll see what I can do about finding your little toy.



Captain Murphy:
It's not a toy. It makes real cupcakes, with a 40 watt bulb, and there's icing packets. But the secret ingredient is love. Damn it.



Marco:
Just try to calm down, go have some pudding.



Captain Murphy:
Pudding can't fill the emptiness inside me! But it'll help.

Dr. Edward Roivas:
It is finally over, my dear. The Ancient's plans are finished for now at least. You have proved to be an incredibly courageous young woman. Your mother and father would have proud of you, just as I am. I'm sorry it had to be like this. It's not quite the inheritance I had in mind for you, but there was so little time, and so much to do... Goodbye, Alex. I will miss you...



Ms. Alexandra Roivas:
Where emptiness had been, new knowledge now seeped inside. Something happened then... I realized I was not the only one, that there were many others like me. In other places, other universes, fighting the same fight, all to serve the needs of the Great Ancient, and to have my world spared from Eternal Darkness.

Ulyaoth:
The Universe is a yawning chasm, filled with emptiness and the puerile meanderings of sentience. Why should you deserve special consideration within it, Augustus, above all else?

Ulyaoth:
Yes. That, and nothing more...

There was neither non-existence nor existence then; there was neither the realm of space nor the sky beyond. There was no distinguishing sign of night nor of day. That One breathed, windless, by its own impulse. Other than that there was nothing beyond. Darkness was hidden by darkness in the beginning; with no distinguishing sign, all this was water.

Feast of Polycarp, Bishop of Smyrna, Martyr, c.155 Jesus evidently felt deeply the emptiness and futility of much... religious talk. He was interested only in those emotions and professions which could get themselves translated into character and action. Words have always been the bane of religion as well as its vehicle. Religious emotion has enormous motive force, but it is the easiest thing in the world for it to sizzle away in high professions and wordy prayers.

Feast of Anskar, Archbishop of Hamburg, Missionary to Denmark and Sweden, 865 Let a man but separate himself from all contingencies and from all works, and there will come over him in this state of emptiness a peace which is very great, lovely, and agreeable, and which is in itself no sin since it is part of our human nature. But when it is taken for a veritable possessing of God, or unity with God, then it is sin, for it is in reality nothing else than a state of thorough passivity and apathy untouched by the powerMore [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Feast of Boniface (Wynfrith) of Crediton, Archbishop of Mainz, Apostle of Germany, Martyr, 754 The separate creaturely life, as opposed to life in union with God, is only a life of various appetites, hungers, and wants, and cannot possibly be anything else. God Himself cannot make a creature to be in itself, or in its own nature, anything else but a state of emptiness.

Physicists have determined that even the most solid and heavy mass of matter we see is mostly empty space. But at the submicroscopic level, specks of matter scattered through a vast emptiness have such incredible density and weight, and are linked to one another by such powerful forces, that together they produce all the properties of concrete, cast iron and solid rock. In much the same way, specks of knowledge are scattered through a vast emptiness of ignorance, and everything depends upon how solid the individual sMore [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

I have an unquenchable desire to slow down and find my life going deeper in my walk with Christ. I want to meet him in the depths of my soul, away from the stress and press of everything on top. A relationship with Christ is the key to fulfilling our deepest longings. All of life is about filling the void that sin and separation from him have created within. Filling the emptiness with piles of things, earthly friendships, satisfying experiences, and sensual encounters ultimately proves to achieve less than what we had More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
