Erkekçe tavırlardan en uzak, eve en bağlı asi-karşıtı Morrissey bile kutsal evlilik kurumuna saldırılar düzenlemiştir. Smiths'in "William İt Was Really Nothing" i dost bir erkeğe, hatta çok muhtemeldir ki, " hiçbir şeyi umursamayan" dolgun bir kızla yapacağı kepaze bir evlilik uğruna güçlü duygularla dolu hayatlarını terk etmenin eşiğinde olan ve Morrissey'in aşkına karşılık vermeyen bir dostuna seslenir. William rahat bir hayat, maddiyatçılık ve zahmetsiz hazır bekleyen seks gibi konvansiyonel ödüller uğruna onların manevi, yüce gönüllü ilişkisine ihanet etmektedir.

"People who are different don't know they're different because they have nothing to compare it to."

Farklı olan insanlar, farklı olduklarının farkında değiller. Çünkü kıyaslayacak hiçbir şeyleri yok.

Nothing İs Exact
"O halde gördüğüm her şeyin sahte olduğunu varsayıyorum, yalancı hafızamın sunduğu hiçbir şeyin asla var olmamış olduğuna ve hiçbir duyumun olmadığına inanıyorum; cisim, biçim, mekanda yer kaplama, hareket ve yer de birer masal canavarı. Peki, hakiki olan ne? Belki de sadece şu: Hiçbir şeyin kesin olmaması."

i like too many things and get all confused and hung-up running from one falling star to another till i drop. this is the night, what it does to you. i had nothing to offer anybody except my own confusion.

Regarding the Pain of Others
“Compassion is an unstable emotion. It needs to be translated into action, or it withers. The question of what to do with the feelings that have been aroused, the knowledge that has been communicated. If one feels that there is nothing 'we' can do -- but who is that 'we'? -- and nothing 'they' can do either -- and who are 'they' -- then one starts to get bored, cynical, apathetic.”

-Susan Sontag

Mass Effect üzerine
There is no recognizable divine presence, such as a god, in the universe, and humans are particularly insignificant in the larger scheme of intergalactic existence, and perhaps are just a small species projecting their own mental idolatries onto the vast cosmos, ever susceptible to being wiped from existence at any moment. This also suggests that the majority of undiscerning humanity are creatures with the same significance as insects in a much greater struggle between greater forces which, due to humanity’s small, visionless and unimportant nature, it does not recognize.

Cosmicism is not merely the idea that there is no meaning in the universe. It’s far worse. Instead, the argument is that there is meaning, but it is so far above and beyond human understanding that we can never attain meaningful existence.

Organic life is nothing but a genetic mutation, an accident. Your lives are measured in years and decades. You wither and die. We are eternal. We are the pinnacle of evolution and existence. Before us, you are nothing . . . Your civilization is based on the technology of the mass relay, our technology. By using it, your society develops along the paths we desire. We impose order on the chaos of organic evolution. You exist because we allow it. And you will end because we demand it.

You ever hear of King George III? He was King of England when America declared independence in 1776. King George III kept a diary. On July 4, 1776 he made an entry in it. "Nothing important happened today." Revolution started. Things that changed the world forever. And even kings can miss them if they're not paying attention.
