“Real gangster-ass Nerdfighters don’t run from nothing… ‘cause real gangster-ass Nerdfighters can’t run fast.”
“Saying 'I notice you're a nerd' is like saying, 'Hey, I notice that you'd rather be intelligent than be stupid, that you'd rather be thoughtful than be vapid, that you believe that there are things that matter more than the arrest record of Lindsay Lohan. Why is that?' In fact, it seems to me that most contemporary insults are pretty lame. Even 'lame' is kind of lame. Saying 'You're lame' is like saying 'You walk with a limp.' Yeah, whatever, so does 50 Cent, and he's done all right for himself.”

When I was a kid,

they told me to walk a mile,

in someone Else's shoes.

But what can you learn,

from a persons shoes?

If you really want to know

what my life is like,

take my eye,

so you can see

why I'd rather look out the window

than talk on the way to school.

And take my legs,

so you can feel what it's like

to constantly want to

run away.

Also, take my ears,

so you'll know

why I'd rather be listening

to music right now.


take my shoulders,

so you can bear

the weight that I drag with me

every morning.
