Without further ado, let’s get into the list of our favorite verna quotes from the fall of usher.

Verna: [As Tammy] Thank you. Thank you so much. I am so grateful
that we’re all here together today to celebrate Goldbug. As you will see tonight, Goldbug is the height of opulence.
Tamerlane: What the fuck are you doing here? I mean… What the fuck… And excuse my French, I’m just… I’m that excited. …are we doing here, right?

There are always consequences. Take you, for instance. Someone, a long time ago, made a little decision, then another, then a big one, then one of absolutely no importance. And then by and by, you were born. On that day, you were the consequence of a harmless choice made by someone in a moment where you didn’t even exist. And that choice defined your whole life. You are consequence, Perry. And tonight, you are consequential.

Madeline: It really is you. It’s amazing how much I’ve denied. But it is you. And somehow I knew you’d be here.
Verna: Well, I left you the address, don’t pat yourself too hard on the back. Go ahead. Say your piece.
Madeline: I want to ask you to stop.
Verna: Come on. Ask me? That isn’t you. And frankly, I think you’ve forgotten what I am.
Madeline: Fine then. I want to renegotiate.

You get the whole world, and when you’re done, at the end of it all, just before you would have died, Roderick, just before you would have died anyway… your bloodline dies with you.


So much money. One of my favorite things about human beings. Starvation, poverty, disease, you could fix all that, just with money. And you don’t. I mean, if you took just a little bit of time off the vanity voyages, pleasure cruising, billionaire space race, hell, you stopped making movies and TV for one year and you spent that money on what you really need, you could solve it all. With some to spare.


You know, it was the Greeks who started it. Fourth century BCE. First experiments on animals. At least, documented. Pigs and goats. You know how many animals are used for testing in a year? More than a hundred million. Human beings doing this to so many other species. It’s impressive. Medical research on chimpanzees was pretty much banned in 2015. I mean, they said exceptions could be made if the research was proven to be critical to understanding human disease. And if a sizeable donation was made to support the conservation of wild chimps.


What is a poem, after all, if not a safe space for a difficult truth.


Everyone loves something. And in that love there is collateral.

There are certain things one shouldn’t have to face in life. Time enough for self-reflection after.

Nearly realized is the sweetest. It’s better, I promise, in the moment just before than in the moment after. That is the truth of this world.

Language in its highest expression is musical.
