Chuck Palahniuk
“To stand here and try to fix her life is just a big waste of time. People don't want their lives fixed. Nobody wants their problems solved. Their dramas. Their distractions. Their stories resolved. Their messed cleaned up. Because what would they have left? Just the big scary unknown.”
Chuck Palahniuk, Survivor

Howard Zinn
“TO BE HOPEFUL in bad times is not just foolishly romantic. It is based on the fact that human history is a history not only of cruelty, but also of compassion, sacrifice, courage, kindness.
What we choose to emphasize in this complex history will determine our lives. If we see only the worst, it destroys our capacity to do something. If we remember those times and places—and there are so many—where people have behaved magnificently, this gives us the energy to act, and at least the possibility of sending this spinning top of a world in a different direction.
And if we do act, in however small a way, we don’t have to wait for some grand utopian future. The future is an infinite succession of presents, and to live now as we think human beings should live, in defiance of all that is bad around us, is itself a marvelous victory.”
Howard Zinn

Jonathan Safran Foer
“If nothing matters, there's nothing to save.”
Jonathan Safran Foer, Eating Animals

Stephen King
“Go then, there are other worlds than these.”
Stephen King, The Gunslinger

Chuck Palahniuk
“Hey, even the Mona Lisa is falling apart.”
Chuck Palahniuk, Fight Club
