“Trouble is our only defense against boredom.”
Chris Fuhrman, The Dangerous Lives of Altar Boys

“Every adult is the creation of a child.”
Chris Fuhrman, The Dangerous Lives of Altar Boys

“I want people to see and hear the things I see and hear. And I want them to remember how it was when they were children. I don't want them to grow up entirely.
Every adult is the creation of a child. My own signature, that identifying scrawl required by parcel postmen and valued by a handful of comic-book fans, that signature was devised by a thirteen-year-old boy who thought I'd want to seem important one day. I am stuck with it. My life is the result of that boy's dreams and limitations, and of the company that boy kept a long time ago, back when things could still happen for the first time.”
Chris Fuhrman, The Dangerous Lives of Altar Boys
