C. JoyBell C.
“She didn't belong anywhere and she never really belonged to anyone. And everyone else belonged somewhere and to someone. People thought she was too wonderful.

And that's why she liked him-- because he just thought she was crazy.”
C. JoyBell C.

Glory: I look around at this world you're so eager to be a part of
“Glory: I look around at this world you're so eager to be a part of and all I see is six billion lunatics looking for the fastest ride out. Who's not crazy? Look around, everyone's drinking, smoking, shooting up, shooting each other, or just plain screwing their brains out 'cause they don't want 'em anymore. I'm crazy? Honey, I'm the original one-eyed chicklet in the kingdom of the blind, 'cause at least I admit the world makes me nuts.”
Douglas Petrie

[...]

Take a war to make you spend. Take a jam to make you think. Take a challenge to make you great. Rest of the time you sit around lazy, you. Pigs, you! All right, God damn you! I challenge you, me. Die or live and be great. Blow yourselves to Christ gone or come and find me, Gully Foyle, and I make you men. I make you great. I give you the stars.”

John Barnes, Tales of the Madman Underground

And right now I'm loving how fast my troubles are fasting

The devil fears me oh he's feeling
Like a fragment of a fraction
No he won't come near me
'Cause his hat trick's out of practice”
Criss Jami, Venus in Arms
