calvin + hobbes

  • The purpose of writing is to inflate weak ideas, obscure poor reasoning, and inhibit clarity.
  • Theres an inverse relationship between how good something is for you and how much fun it is
  • It's only work if somebody makes you do it.
  • I find my life is a lot easier the lower I keep everyone's expectations
  • Things are never quite as scary when you've got a best friend
  • I'm related to people I don't relate to
  • A little rudeness and disrespect can elevate a meaningless interaction to a battle of wills and add drama to an otherwise dull day
  • Physical Education is what you learn from having your face in someone's armpit right before lunch
  • Life is full of precluded possibilities
  • I wonder how long its been since I last looked at the clock. Maybe it's been an hour. Well, actually it's probably been only 40 minutes. I'll guess half an hour to be safe..
    [he looks at the clock]
    20 seconds?! It's going to be a very long day.
  • Calvin: Let's try this path over here!
    Hobbes: I don't see a path.
    Calvin: We'll make a path.
  • The problem with new experiences is that they're so rarely the ones you choose
  • As usual, goodness hardly puts up a fight
  • Hobbes : Shouldn't we read the instructions?
    Calvin : Do I look like a sissy?
  • You know what we need, Hobbes? We need an attitude. Yeah, you can't be cool if you don't have an attitude
  • There's never enough time to do all the nothing you want
  • I'm killing time while I wait for life to shower me with meaning and happiness
  • The only skills I have patience to learn are those that have no real application in life
  • Calvin: ....It's not fair!
    Calvin's Father: The World isn't fair.
    Calvin: I know, but why isn't it even unfair in my favor?
