I hate issuing bans. Anyone who likes to do it should never be an admin. Bans are the last resort, the most powerful weapon that exists on a wiki to curtail a problem users. They're used for users who will not learn, refuse to follow rules that they have been informed of, and users who are maliciously causing damage. They are not for users who make mistakes while editing an article. They're not for users who make unpopular edits. They're not to be used to teach lessons to users who make edits in good faith, even if those edits do not necessarily jive with consensus (bans should be used, however, if those users attempt to edit war following having the community consensus explained to them, and the conversations that established that consensus shown to them).

So avoid using the word 'very' because it’s lazy. A man is not very tired, he is exhausted. Don’t use very sad, use morose. Language was invented for one reason, boys - to woo women - and, in that endeavor, laziness will not do. It also won't do in your essays.
--- N.H. Klienbaum, Dead Poets Society

[On the Berlin Wall] That soldier and I speak the same language. We share the same history. But one of us is a zookeeper and the other is an animal, and I am never certain which is which.
--- Unnamed German, April 1987

It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live.
--- J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone

Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day. You shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.
--- Edgar Allen Poe

Sometimes people are beautiful.
Not in looks.
Not in what they say.
Just in who they are.
--- Markus Zusak, I Am the Messenger

Dumbledore watched her fly away, and as her silvery glow faded he turned back to Snape, and his eyes were full of tears.
"After all this time?"

In real life I'm actually a fork saleswoman. I sell short forks and long forks, but I sell forks in the road to poets and sometimes even lap dances for variety.

If you happened to walk through StarClan's forests, past the kits in the meadow, the old lovers by the stream, and the elders sunning on rocks, you would encounter a shadowy place.
It is deep in the forest. Many cats walk here, ones who have been invited to join the ranks of StarClan many times. These cats cannot bring themselves to live among others. They walk alone, not quite in the grips of the Dark Forest, but close.
You would stand close to the edge of this shadowy place and look in. You would see many cats, shadowed by their regrets, walking alone. They would weave through one another silently. You would see entire generations in the shadow's grasp, but you would search for me. For us.
And you would find us. We walk together, in a pair. We are silent as well. We cannot bring ourselves to speak of our lifetimes.
I continuously search the edges of the shadows, where the light is, for you. For your beautiful eyes and your battle-scarred face. And when I see it, I will tell you this.
We have lived many lifetimes, and I think it is time to settle down and reveal our truths.
I think our first truth is you.
--- Forestpaw13, Ocean and Sky

This afternoon an idea struck me for a fanfiction. Basically it was about this kittypet who wanted to survive in the forest, discovered a prophecy about herself, and went on to save the Clans for generations to come.
Then I realized that it was the basic idea of the entire Warriors series.

... because if I wore that band's shirt I would walk down the beach in that band's t-shirt, bikini bottom, sunglasses, hair pulled back to the best of my ability, big boom box on my shoulder, turn up the bass
then I would walk in a sexy way down the beach and watch as the boys follow, serenading me with Coldplay's "Paradise" and fanning me with large green ferns
then I wake up to my normal room, rain beating the roof, school today? and what the ****? it's tuesday? I'm going back to sleep, **** off mom

I once asked a girl, "Why did you stick the pencil up your butt?" Her response? "I thought something was stuck in there." Well of course there is. It's called poop.
