“Don't mess with me, lady. I've been drinking with skeletons.”
Mike Mignola

Kurt Vonnegut
“1492. As children we were taught to memorize this year with pride and joy as the year people began living full and imaginative lives on the continent of North America. Actually, people had been living full and imaginative lives on the continent of North America for hundreds of years before that. 1492 was simply the year sea pirates began to rob, cheat, and kill them.”
Kurt Vonnegut

Mark Twain
“If you tell the truth, you don't have to remember anything.”
Mark Twain

“If you want to know what a man's like, take a good look at how he treats his inferiors, not his equals.”
J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

Warren Ellis
“Did you ever want to set someone's head on fire, just to see what it looked like? Did you ever stand in the street and think to yourself, I could make that nun go blind just by giving her a kiss?

If so, then you're the bastard who stole my drugs Friday night. And I'll find you. Oh, yes.”
Warren Ellis, Transmetropolitan, Vol. 5: Lonely City
