As human beings, we’re considered the apex predator but only because smaller animals can’t feed on us because of weapons and stuff, right? A lion does not feel guilty when it kills a gazelle, right? You do not feel guilty when you squash a fly… and I think that means something.

“See it’s different ‘cause you’ve always had friends, and people want to talk to you and be around you. I never had any of that. I mean, before this, I barely even hung out with Matt, and he’s my cousin. We were close when we were little, but…I don’t know. In high school, everything changed.”
…in childhood we have used up too much strength…What shall one say about it? That life has unending possibilities of renewal. Yes, but this too: that the using of strength in a certain sense is always increase of strength also; for fundamentally we have to do only with a wide cycle: all strength that we give away comes over us again, experienced and altered.
Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet, “Chronicle: 1903-1908″
“I just wanted to say that… I’m sorry and, uh… I hope… that you know that I did what I had to do. You’re not a bad person. I know that. That’s all that matters. And, uh, I want you to know that I’m gonna be better from now on. I’m gonna help people. I’m gonna find out what happened to us down there. I don’t care how long it takes. I’m gonna get answers. I’m gonna do it for you, and I’m gonna do it for Steve. And… I just… I love you, man. I didn’t ever get a chance to tell you but I love you.” (Chronicle 2012)
