“For small creatures such as we, the vastness is bearable only through love.”

"Rectify is a show about trying to apply order to variables. When Daniel loses everything that he’s accepted to be true about his life — that he would die in prison — and is forced back into the society that tried to shed him, Daniel must learn what it means to be human all over again. And this, he discovers, means embracing the unexpected. A life where miracles are as likely to happen as misfortune, and where nothing — from the person waiting behind a door to the beliefs he held as true — can be predicted or relied on.”

“You never see my attitude in the press. That’s what bugs me. For instance : gays in the military. Now I don’t know how you feel about it, gays want to be in the military. Here’s my thought: anyone dumb enough to want to be in the military should be allowed in. End of fucking story. That should be the only requirement. I don’t care how many push ups you can do; put on a helmet, go wait in that foxhole, we’ll tell you when we need you to kill somebody. You know? I see these Congressional hearing on TV: The decorum will be effected and we are such a moral… excuse me, aren’t you all fucking hired killers? SHUT UP! You are thugs, and when we need you to go blow the fuck out of a nation of little brown people, we’ll let you know. Until then, shut the fuck up. When did the fucking military get all ‘We are the military. Is that a village of children and kids? Where’s the napalm? I don’t want any gay people around me when I’m killing kids. I just don’t want to see it.’ Don’t tell me this military protects our freedom. There’s no one out there who’s a fucking threat to us. I’m talking now only countries we don’t arm first. If you want to split hairs, you have a point. ‘Bill what about the nations we sell arms to and then go blow the fuck out of them?’ Ok, they might be scary for about a day. We give them the old weapons,we use the new ones on them.”
