"He's as blind as he can be
Just sees what he wants to see
Nowhere Man, can you see me at all?
The Beatles, "Nowhere Man"

"You only see what your eyes want to see"
Madonna, "Frozen"

The mind imposes this framework which it calls ‘reality.’ That arbitrary framework has a tendency to be quite independent of what your senses report.

That's not how I choose to remember it.

It takes a strong man to deny what's right in front of him. And if the truth is undeniable... you create your own.
John Konrad, Spec Ops: The Line

Inara: What did I say to you about barging into my shuttle?
Mal: That it was manly and impulsive?
Inara: Yes, precisely. Only the exact phrase I used was "Don't."
Firefly

What you're opposing isn't Helheim or Yggdrasill. It's the iron rule that says the world demands sacrifice in exchange for hope. Destroy that rule itself. Destroy it and change the world.
DJ Sagara, Kamen Rider Gaim

It's like you have this belief that if you say things enough times they suddenly become true.

It's like a blindfolded man sitting in broad daylight saying "I love the dark" and swatting anyone who tries to take the damned thing off.

People don’t like to think. If one thinks, one must reach conclusions. Conclusions are not always pleasant.
Helen Keller (attributed)

The most costly of all follies is to believe passionately in the palpably not true. It is the chief occupation of mankind.

Reality is something the human race doesn't handle very well.

Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored.
Aldous Huxley, "Note on Dogma"

Only dead fish go with the flow.

Each week, Bischoff, he's, "Annnnny week, we're beating Vince!" He had a meeting every week. "WWE's closing down!" I kept lookin' at him, going, "...."Okay." I don't think you know the same Vince McMahon I know. "We're killing Vince! They're gonna be gone!" He was consumed with it. As was Hogan, Nash, Hall, Savage, all of 'em. They just thought it was major coup...It was happiest day of my life, the day they closed down. I was so glad to see it go.
Ric Flair on the death of WCW

It’s been much, much too long since we’ve all gotten a piping hot, extra large serving of cuntness from gold digging grand champion and one of my cunt idols Heather Mills, so thankfully she was asked to be on Ireland’s The Late Late Show where she delivered a beautifully bitchy gem. Heather, who was only relevant for being married to Paul McCartney, was a little pissed when the host Ryan Tubridy brought up Paul McCartney’s name. Thankfully for him, Heather Mills didn’t pull a Heather Mills by dumping a glass of water on his head...Heather Mills thinks that Heather Mills is more relevant and in with the kids than Paul McCartney. If delusion needs inspiration on how to be more delusional, it should spend time with Heather Mills.

We all know that “kids” aren’t running up to Heather Mills in the street. That’s crazy. Most kids have been told at a very, very young age to never ever go up to that witch Heather Mills, because she’ll eat their souls.
Michael K., "Heather Mills Says Paul McCartney Is Irrelevant"

It’s absolutely fascinating how the libertarian crew has managed to smuggle out the “skepticism” claim to try and make various forms of denialism all logicky and masculine, rather than the depraved rantings of people who can’t face the real world.

Oh, I’m a climate change skeptic, I’m an evolution skeptic, I just inherently believe that all of science is part of a giant collusion to personally deceive me...And also Holocaust, what Holocaust, I’m just so skeptical! Look at how intelligently skeptically I can put my fingers in my ears and go lalalalala.
Cerberus, "My Fedora Brings All the Girls to the Yard"
