"She tapped on the window with her embossed hairbrush. They were too far off to hear. The drone of the trees was in their ears; the chirp of birds; other incidents of garden life, inaudible, invisible to her in the bedroom, absorbed them.

The further the pendulum swings out over woe the further it is bound to swing back over mirth." - Mark Twain

"After 'Psychonauts,' we could have laid off half our team so that we'd have more money and time to sign 'Brutal Legend.'

It would say that we're not loyal to them, and that we don't care." - Tim Schafer
