Fiona's Recent Updates

Fiona liked a quote
American Gods by Neil Gaiman
“There's never been a true war that wasn't fought between two sets of people who were certain they were in the right. The really dangerous people believe they are doing whatever they are doing solely and only because it is without question the right thing to do. And that is what makes them dangerous.”
Neil Gaiman

Stardust by Neil Gaiman
“Adventures are all very well in their place, but there's a lot to be said for regular meals and freedom from pain.”
Neil Gaiman

The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman
“It's like the people who believe they'll be happy if they go and live somewhere else, but who learn it doesn't work that way. Wherever you go, you take yourself with you. If you see what I mean.”
Neil Gaiman

Ned Vizzini
“People are screwed up in this world. I'd rather be with someone screwed up and open about it than somebody perfect and ready to explode.”
Ned Vizzini, It's Kind of a Funny Story

Gregory Maguire
“There are two kinds of anger: hot and cold. Boys and girls experience both, but as they grow up the anger separates according to the sex. Boys need hot anger to survive. They need inclination to fight, the drive to sink the knife into the flesh, the energy and initiative of fury. It's a requirement of hunting, of defense, of pride. Maybe of sex too. And girls need cold anger. They need the cold simmer, the ceaseless grudge, the talent to avoid forgiveness, the sidestepping of compromise. They need to know when they say something that they will never back down, ever, ever. It's the compensation for a more limited scope in the world. Cross a man and you struggle, one of you wins, you would adjust and go on -- or you lie there dead. Cross a woman and the universe is changed, once again, for cold anger requires an eternal vigilance in all matters of slight and offense.”
Gregory Maguire, Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West

Deb Caletti
“Your sibling, after all, is the only other person in the world who understands how fucked up your parents made you.”
Deb Caletti, The Nature of Jade

Chuck Palahniuk
“After you find out all the things that can go wrong, your life becomes less about living and more about waiting.”
Chuck Palahniuk, Choke

Ned Vizzini
“I should be a success and I'm not and other people- younger people- are. Younger people than me are on TV and getting their lives in order. I'm still a nobody. When am I going to not be a nobody?”
Ned Vizzini, It's Kind of a Funny Story
