„I think so. I guess if I look back on it now, I don't think anybody anticipated the level of violence that we've encountered.“

„I don't think that people accept the fact that life doesn't make sense. I think it makes people terribly uncomfortable.“

— David Lynch American filmmaker, television director, visual artist, musician and occasional actor 1946
Context: I don't think that people accept the fact that life doesn't make sense. I think it makes people terribly uncomfortable. It seems like religion and myth were invented against that, trying to make sense out of it. As quoted in My Love Affair with David Lynch and Peachy Like Nietzsche: Dark Clown Porn Snuff for Terrorists and Gorefiends (2005) by Jason Rogers, p. 7

„I am so often accused of gloominess and melancholy. And I think I'm probably the most cheerful man around. I don't consider myself a pessimist at all. I think of a pessimist as someone who is waiting for it to rain. And I feel completely soaked to the skin.“

— Leonard Cohen Canadian poet and singer-songwriter 1934 - 2016
Context: I am so often accused of gloominess and melancholy. And I think I'm probably the most cheerful man around. I don't consider myself a pessimist at all. I think of a pessimist as someone who is waiting for it to rain. And I feel completely soaked to the skin. … I think those descriptions of me are quite inappropriate to the gravity of the predicament that faces us all. I've always been free from hope. It's never been one of my great solaces. I feel that more and more we're invited to make ourselves strong and cheerful..... I think that it was Ben Jonson who said, I have studied all the theologies and all the philosophies, but cheerfulness keeps breaking through. As quoted in [http://www.webheights.net/speakingcohen/feb93.htm "The Joking Troubadour of Gloom" in The Daily Telegraph (26 April 1993)]

„Although I think that life may be the result of an accident, I do not think that of consciousness.“

— Erwin Schrödinger Austrian physicist 1887 - 1961
Context: Although I think that life may be the result of an accident, I do not think that of consciousness. Consciousness cannot be accounted for in physical terms. For consciousness is absolutely fundamental. It cannot be accounted for in terms of anything else. As quoted in The Observer (11 January 1931); also in Psychic Research (1931), Vol. 25, p. 91
