Quotes: I Just Want to Be Special
"You guys can do all this awesome Bending stuff, like putting out forest fires, and flying around, and making other stuff fly around... I can't fly around, okay? I can't do anything..."

"I'm a square little peg who fits too well
In a square little hole."
Phyllis McGinley, Lament of the Normal Child

"I can't fly like a pegasus, I don't have any magical powers, and I can't even make it through a simple jumping drill like any self-respecting Earth pony!"

"I have no interest in ordinary humans. If there are any aliens, time travelers, sliders or espers here, come join me. That is all."

I've got to be someone who lives
All of his life in superlatives
When you're extraordinary
You gotta do extraordinary things
The fact I'm special is easy to see
So why doesn't anybody know it but me?
I'm extraordinary
I need to do extraordinary things
Pippin, Pippin, "Extraordinary"

"No retractable claws, no opposable toes, no prehensile tail, no compound eyes, no fangs, no wings... *sighs*"
Calvin, Calvin and Hobbes
