Quote of the Day
Moral indignation is jealousy with a halo.
H. G. Wells
Life is not a series of gig lamps symmetrically arranged; life is a luminous halo, a semi-transparent envelope surrounding us from the beginning of consciousness to the end.
When you're in love you never really know whether your elation comes from the qualities of the one you love, or if it attributes them to her; whether the light which surrounds her like a halo comes from you, from her, or from the meeting of your sparks.
Natalie Clifford Barney
I have self-actualized. Pardon me whilst I adjust my glowing halo.
There is a touch of divinity even in brutes, and a special halo about a horse, that should forever exempt him from indignities.
A ring is a halo on your finger.

Conscience: self-esteem with a halo.
Suppose you like someone very much. Then, by a familiar halo effect, you will also be prone to believe many good things about that person - you will be biased in their favor.

I still really love the world and the universe and the mythology of 'Halo.' If I was given control, I would really like to do that film. But that's the problem. When something pre-exists, there's this idea of my own interpretation versus 150 other people involved with the film's interpretation of the same intellectual property.
I have angel wings and a halo on my wrist, which I got done on my 30th birthday in memory of my brother.
Maybe we should have known that night in Denver that things that begin with plywood Greek columns and artificial smoke typically don't end well. Maybe the Hollywood stars and the glamour blinded us a little: you thought it was the glare, some of us thought it was a halo.
I'm all about 'Halo 2'.
I think that 'Halo' is a hard property because they don't need to make a film. They make far more money out of the games so why risk?
All Internet comedy is niche comedy. If you do an Internet video about Halo, every Halo fan will send it to every other Halo fan. But if you did an episode of a network comedy that parodied Halo, most of your audience wouldn't even get it.
