“When I was young, I asked my priest how to get to heaven and still protect yourself from all the evil in the world. He told me what God told His children;'You are sheep among wolves, be wise as the serpent, yet innocent as doves.”
Dennis Lehane, Gone, Baby, Gone

“That's the thing about being a victim; you start to think it'll happen to you on a regular basis. It's living with the reality of your own vulnerability, and it sucks.”
Dennis Lehane, A Drink Before the War

“The thirst for knowledge is like a piece of ass you know you shouldn't chase; in the end, you chase it just the same.”
George P. Pelecanos, Down by the River Where the Dead Men Go

“Soon it began to drizzle for the second time that night. The drops grew heavier and became visible in the headlights of the cars. It was said by some of the police on the scene that God was crying for the girl in the garden. To others, it was only rain. (final lines)”
George P. Pelecanos, The Night Gardener

“You already been a punk. Least you can do is go out like a man." Then a dull popping sound and a quiet splash.”
George P. Pelecanos, Down by the River Where the Dead Men Go
