“I’ve had many enemies over the years. If there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s never engage in a fight you’re sure to lose. On the other hand, never let anyone who has insulted you get away with it. Bide your time and strike back when you’re in a position of strength—even if you no longer need to strike back.”
Stieg Larsson, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
“Keep in mind that I'm crazy, won't you?”

The last time she saw him she was standing on a platform in the tunnelbana at Gamla Stan and he was sitting in the train on his way downtown. She had stared at him for a whole minute and decided that she did not have a grain of feeling left, because it would have been the same as bleeding to death. Fuck you.”
Stieg Larsson, The Girl Who Played with Fire
“Salander was the woman who hated men who hate women.”

other.”
Stieg Larsson, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
