Favorite quotes:

"We're all liars here. The whole purpose of our enterprise is to become skilled in making things up, of substitutinmg our own truth for the truth."

". . . there's no big gash you can show anybody, nothing they'd believe would really hurt. But these damn little nicks, they suck the blood right out of you."

". . . with the grim expression of someone who, if allowed to redesign the world to his own specifications would retain very little of the present one."
