10 of the Best Twilight Zone Episodes

1) Death's Head Revisited
"This is not hatred. This is retribution. This is not revenge. This is justice. But this is only the beginning. Your final judgment will come from God."

2) The Obsolete Man
"It's been hidden for over 20 years. It's punishable by death, so it's the only possession that I have that has any value at all to me. So I'm going to just sit down and read until the moment of my death. How will you spend your last moments, chancellor?"

3) The Eye Of The Beholder
"Who are you people anyway? What is this state? Who makes all these rules and conditions and statutes? The state is not god! It hasn't the right to penalize somebody for an accident of birth! It hasn't the right to make ugliness a crime!"

4) The Monsters Are Due On Maple Street
"The tools of conquest do not necessarily come with bombs and explosions and fallout. There are weapons that are simply thoughts, attitudes, prejudices to be found only in the minds of men. For the record, prejudices can kill."

5) The Night Of The Meek
"I live in a dirty rooming house on a street filled with hungry kids and shabby people where the only thing that comes down the chimney on Christmas is more poverty. I just wish, on one Christmas, only one, I'd like to see the meek inherit the earth."

6) A Nice Place To Visit
"A scared, angry little man who never got a break. Now he has everything he's ever wanted - and he's going to have to live with it for eternity."

7) The Shelter
"I mean all of us. A lot of naked, wild animals who put such a price on staying alive that they'll claw their neighbors to death just for the privilege. We were spared a bomb tonight, but I wonder.
I wonder if we weren't destroyed even without it."

8) The Encounter
"Europeans are always calling the natives 'boy' and moaning about the white man's burden. Well, the facts are: I'm a full-grown man, I work for a living, and I answer to 'Arthur,' 'Takamori,' and, believe it or not, sometimes to 'Mr. Takamori.'"

9) Number 12 Looks Just Like You
"Did you know that Dostoyevsky was an epileptic? He was ugly, he was deformed, but he wrote about beauty, about real beauty. These men wrote about life and about the dignity of the individual human spirit and about love."

10) Judgement Night
"To be damned is to have a fate like the people on that ship, to suffer as they suffer and to die as they die. They could die only once, but we could die a hundred million times. We could ride the ghost of that ship every night. Every night for eternity."

Marching Through March

Some appreciation for the month of March.


I love the entire year. Well, for the most part. I'm not a big fan of Winter, but even then, every month has something that's pretty great. November? Thanksgiving. December? Winter Holidays. January? New Year's. February? Valentine's and Single Awareness Day. May? Existential dread during finals. But for me, March has always been my favorite month of the year, and for good reason.
