I can't remember the last time I was so enraptured with a book I read it this quickly. Possibly one of my new favourite series.

“Over 50 per cent of all American crime over the last 75 years has been blamed on drugs, because drugs are the single most convenient scapegoat for a society that is unable to blame itself. When it comes to explaining the presence of those drugs themselves, blame is still not placed on American consumers, but on the foreign supplies who grow the stuff. In America, there are no villains - only victims.”
Dominic Streatfeild, Cocaine: An Unauthorized Biography

Stephen King
“Wish in one hand, shit in the other, see which one fills up first.”
Stephen King, The Dark Tower

“Gold is for hoarders expecting to trade glittering bars for stale bread after a financial Armageddon.”
Andrew Hallam, Millionaire Teacher: The Nine Rules of Wealth You Should Have Learned in School

Gene Wolfe
“I believe there is no other difference between those who are called courageous and those who are branded craven than that the second are fearful before the danger and the first after it. No one can be much frightened, certainly, during a period of great and imminent peril -- the mind is too much concentrated on the thing itself, and on the actions necessary to meet or avoid it. The coward is a coward, then, because he has brought his fear with him; persons we think cowardly will sometimes amaze us by their bravery, if they have had no forewarning of their danger.”
Gene Wolfe, The Claw of the Conciliator

Smedley D. Butler
“In the World War, we used propaganda to make the boys accept conscription. They were made to feel ashamed if they didn't join the army.”
Smedley D. Butler, War is a Racket: The Antiwar Classic by America's Most Decorated Soldier
