“Your opponent will often be blind to your design, being consumed with his own. Do not subconsciously seek accolades of your ingenuity and thus call attention - be sated by your own approval. Be confident you will win.”
Shannon Kirk, Method 15/33
“When he greeted them on Day 16, he said, “Thanks so much, such great food for us.” This time he gave a false, fake laugh. Phony. I thought of my mother . Her disdain for phonies was even greater than her disdain for the lazy.”
Shannon Kirk, Method 15/33
“Recurso colectivo #39: literatura.”
Shannon Kirk, Method 15/33
“A veces creo que nosotros mismos
impedimos que admitamos conclusiones inevitables porque todavía no estamos listos para lo que quiera que haya que hacer.”
Shannon Kirk, Method 15/33
“Love is the easiest emotion to switch off, but the hardest to turn on. In contrast, the easiest emotions to switch on, but hardest to turn off are: hate, remorse, guilt, and easiest of all, fear. “Falling in Love” is an entirely different beast. In fact, “Falling in Love” should not be classified as an emotion at all. Falling in Love is an involuntary state caused by a measurable chemical reaction, which leads to an addictive cycle your physical self seeks constantly to maintain.”
Shannon Kirk, Method 15/33
“Yo llamo y llamo y me abres.
En efecto, el diablo es diablesa.”

“.... dopo una sfilza di test, lo psichiatra infantile aveva detto ai miei che ero decisamente capace di provare emozioni, ma avevo anche il dono eccezionale di scacciare la distrazione e i pensieri improduttivi.....
«Non è sociopatica. Capisce e può decidere di sentire le emozioni. Ma può anche decidere di non farlo. Mi ha detto che ha un interruttore interno che può accendere o spegnere in qualunque momento, per provare per esempio gioia, paura, amore.» Aveva tossito e borbottato «ahem», prima di proseguire. «Vedete, non ho mai avuto un paziente così, prima d’ora. Ma non occorre essere Einstein per capire quanto poco sappiamo dei limiti del cervello umano. Alcuni sostengono che sfruttiamo solo una parte minoritaria del nostro potenziale. Diciamo che vostra figlia ne sfrutta un po’. Se sia una notizia buona o cattiva, questo non lo so.»”
Shannon Kirk, Method 15/33
“A quelli di voi che mi definiscono sociopatica perché sono saldamente sconnessa, chiedo che cosa fareste se un uomo puntasse la canna della pistola contro il vostro bambino e minacciasse di premere il grilletto. Forse comprendereste il mio atteggiamento e la mia determinazione. Forse desiderereste avere la mia lucidità e la mia audacia. Certo, usereste le risorse a modo vostro, e non vi giudico per questo, come spero non mi giudicherete voi. Dopotutto, ognuno cerca giustizia a modo suo. Io cerco la mia senza rimorsi.”
Shannon Kirk, Method 15/33
“that ever-sneaky anxiety over newness makes itself known in me again, making me queasy and fearful.”
Shannon Kirk, Gretchen
“I’m only almost strong; a wedge of weakness slices into me, a wedge I can’t seem to close. Feels like I could be a solid wheel, but I’m missing a slice of myself, and I don’t know what the slice is or where it went off to or even how to define it. So I have no idea what to look for to make me whole—the missing item that would stop this sliver of sneaky panic that rises out of nowhere and chokes the stronger slices of me.”
Shannon Kirk, Gretchen
“Tricking someone into thinking he has power is the ultimate power play. The”
Shannon Kirk, The Method
“Un animal enjaulado; los barrotes: su propia locura.”
Shannon Kirk, Method 15/33
“Sobre todo me avergüenza lo absolutamente negligente que fui con el tiempo. Hay días en los que casi no me puedo mirar al espejo por haber practicado tanto para lograr la perfección cuando lo que tendría que haber hecho es actuar antes para salvar a Dorothy.”
Shannon Kirk, Method 15/33
“This is Mom, all right. Here’s a guy telling us about the horrible death of his wife and child, and the horror of his four-year-old screaming in the woods with those dead bodies, and Mom is thinking about our little duo. She is always only laser focused on us, which, in the last year, I’ve recognized more and more, and in that recognition, I’ve come to appreciate her crazy level of protection, but also to detest it. Mom’s obsession with protecting us is like a comforting, comfortable room sometimes, and others, a claustrophobic, windowless cell of steel air.”
Shannon Kirk, Gretchen
“how important it is to respect someone’s secrets, because they own their secrets, and you own yours.”
Shannon Kirk, Gretchen
“I know I don’t need to be strong for her. She has all the strength, and I am allowed to be weak, and this makes me feel, oddly, stronger for it.”
Shannon Kirk, Gretchen
“We look happy on the outside, and I’m playing my part for her, but my smile is false. This sunlight is fake. Nobody knows how you really feel in the very center of yourself.”
Shannon Kirk, Gretchen
