If intellection and knowledge were mere passion from without, or the bare reception of extraneous and adventitious forms, then no reason could be given at all why a mirror or looking-glass should not understand; whereas it cannot so much as sensibly perceive those images which it receives and reflects to us.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Verily the kindness that gazes upon itself in a mirror turns to stone, and a good deed that calls itself by tender names becomes the parent to a curse.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Some will not recognize the truthfulness of my mirror. Let them remember that I am not here to reflect the surface... but must penetrate inside. My mirror probes down to the heart.

I had to go to a mirror and look at it. I couldn't picture myself in my own head. I had no image beyond a stick figure. I wasn't a mean person as a kid, or dumb, and something has to be said to justify excluding you.More [10/30/2005 12:10:00]

What's most brilliant are her lyrics, which are laugh-out-loud funny. For where other female rappers do super-explicit sex rhymes, and mirror the witless bravado of their male counterparts, Princess Superstar spins an altogether more playful, ironic line of tease.

I'm 24. I think when I was 18, 19, I had a problem with it because I wanted to look older and more womanly.

Gustav the Magic Mirror: Mirror one shattered be, by an oaf named Antony. Mirror two is on a bed with barnacles upon its head.
Tony: A bed... with barnacles.
Virginia: The sea bed!
Dwarf Librarian: Yes. One fell into the Great Northern Sea. I think you can safely discount that one.
Gustav the Magic Mirror: What you seek has not been seen, since it was stolen by the Queen.
Tony: The Queen! That's all we need.
Prince Wendell: Antony, uh, any chance of a little biscut?
Tony: No, no, no, um...
Tony: Very helpful you have been, just tell us where we can find the Queen.
Gustav the Magic Mirror: Near she is, but not alone. In a place that is not her home. In a castle, out of sight, where once the Queen was called Snow White.

Splatter.More [04/23/2007 12:04:00]
Samuel Pepys: You know, Mr. K, the performance of yours I always liked best? As much as I adored your Desdemona and your Juliet, I've always loved best your 'britches' parts. Rosalind, for instance. And not just because of the woman stuff but also because of the man sections. Your performance of the man stuff seemed so right, so true. I suppose I felt it was the most real in the play.
Ned Kynaston: You know why the man stuff seemed so real? Because I'm pretending. You see a man through the mirror of a woman through the mirror of a man. You take one of those reflecting glasses away it doesn't work. The man only works because you see him in contrast to the woman he is. If you saw him without the her he lives inside, he wouldn't seem a man at all.
Samuel Pepys: Yes. You've obviously thought longer on this question than I.More [05/01/2007 12:05:00]

Francine: [munching on a chocolate bar she found, she swallows her mouthful and yells] No... no sorry!
Evan: [he searches the car again] Scott and Carly took all our frigging sun screen!
[he sprays some mosquito spray on his arm, before he hears a sound in the woods. He goes to check it out]
Francine: [Still looking through Chris's stuff. She finds a book] Y'know, i think this guy must be some kind of doctor! Maybe we should get him to write us some perscriptions when he gets back.
[she lights a cigarette]
Francine: he doesnt have any smokes either... we're almost out
Francine: [frowns when Evan doesnt answer] Evan?

Dave: If you've ever seen the look on somebody's face the day they finally get a job, I've had some experience with this, they look like they could fly. And its not about the paycheck, it's about respect, it's about looking in the mirror and knowing that you've done something valuable with your day. And if one person could start to feel this way, and then another person, and then another person, soon all these other problems may not seem so impossible. You don't really know how much you can do until you, stand up and decide to try.More [08/19/2007 12:08:00]
Ashley: What else have you seen Kale?
Kale: I... I saw you swim.
Ashley: Yeah, what else?
Kale: I... I've seen a lot. I mean, not like that. I mean...
[takes a breath]
Kale: For instance, I've seen that you're maybe one of, I don't know, three people in the world that likes pizza flavored chips. You're also the only person I've ever seen that spends more time on the roof of her house than in her actual house. And what you do when you're reading... books, ya know, not... not US weekly or Seventeen or ya know? But you're reading substantial books.
Kale: You do this uh...
[scratches head, chuckles]
Kale: You do this thing where, it's like an OCD thing but it's not. It's um... whenever you're leaving your room, you grab the door knob, you turn it and you're getting ready to leave but you don't. You stop and you back and you turn to the mirror and you stare at yourself. But it's not like a, ya know, an "I'm-so-hot" kind of stare. It's more like "Who am I really?" and asking yourself that... I mean, that's... that's so cool. So you look out the window all the time like I do, only you're looking at the world ya know? tryin' to figure it out, trying to understand the world. Trying to figure out why it's not in order like your books. Umm... I'm only looking at you.More [09/16/2007 12:09:00]

White Goodman: [finshing a ride on the skis] Yeah! Oh, hello. I'm White Goodman, Owner, Operator, and Founder of Globo Gym America Corp, and I'm here to tell you that you don't have to be stuck with what ya got.
[a buffed Globo Gym member is lifting weights]
White Goodman: Hey, Rory. Looking good. Here at Globo Gym, we understand that "Ugliness" and "Fatness" are genetic disorders, much like baldness or necrophilia, and it's only your fault if you don't hate yourself enough to do something about it.
White Goodman: [climbing on the rocky wall; grunts] And that's where we come in.
White Goodman: Globo Gym employs a highly-trained, quasi-cultural staff of personal alterational specialists. And with our competitively-priced on-site cosmetic surgery, we can turn that Frankenstein you see in the mirror every morning into a Franken-fine!
White Goodman: [wheels out a bandaged-like-a-mummy person in a wheelchair] Of course you'll still be you in a legal sense, but think of it as a thinner, more attractive, better you than you could ever become without us. How do I know? Well, I'm not only the founder of Globo Gym. I'm also a client.
[a picture of a 600-pound White Goodman from 14 years ago]
White Goodman: That's me. Six years and 600 pounds ago... before I knew how much I hated myself. But that all changed once I founded Globo Gym. But don't just take my word for it. Listen to these Globo-Gymers tell you how it is.More [09/17/2007 12:09:00]

Ben Grimm: What's wrong with me?
Johnny Storm: I swear to you, Ben, they've done everything humanly possible. The best plastic surgeons in the world are here, Ben. You had the best.
[Johnny picks up a hand mirror on the bed table before Ben can reach it, reluctant to give it to him]
Ben Grimm: Give me that mirror.
Johnny Storm: I don't think if that's a good idea. They said the shock alone...
Ben Grimm: I said, give me that goddamn mirror!
Johnny Storm: Okay, Ben. Just be strong.

Cully: Where have you been? I lost your trail at the blackjack table.
Johnny: I ran into a guy who told me about a gypsy fortune-teller. She's got a hot cup of tea leaves.
Cully: I'm a coffee man myself! What happened with your astrologer? She couldn't read the stars on a cloudy night?
Johnny: You got to have faith, Cully.
Cully: And money. How much did you lose tonight?
Johnny: How much did I have?
Cully: That's what you lost last night. You're holding your own.

Johnny: Seven years' bad luck!
Cully: It was already cracked.
Johnny: Okay... Only five!
Cully: Be over before you know it.
Johnny: Aww! Say, five. That's a hunch. Loan me five bucks, Cully.
Cully: I can't afford you much longer.
Johnny: Put the five on number 5.

I'm not going through a lapse; what I've experienced is closer to awakening.More [12/04/2007 12:12:00]

The Sphinx: If his unpleasant wounding has in some way enlightened the rest of you as to the grim finish beneath the glossy veneer of criminal life and inspired you to change your ways, then his injuries carry with it an inherent nobility, and a supreme glory. We should all be so fortunate. You say poor Toby? I say poor us.
