Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“Float like a corpse sting like a lemon.”
Fred Van Lente, Deadpool Team-Up, Volume 1: Good Buddies

“Myths, legends and stories are the signposts previous generations have left us so we don't have to figure out our own personal journey in solitude!

They have to be metaphorical, because their interpretation will be different for each individual life!”
Fred Van Lente, Action Philosophers! Giant-Sized Thing, Vol. 1

“The Punisher: If there are no consequences to your mistakes...there are no reason not to make them...”
Fred Van Lente, Deadpool vs. The Punisher
