“Happy birthday to me. Twenty-four. Mid-twenties. Yay. I guess I have one year of youth left. At least I can round out twenty-four to twenty. Not so lucky with twenty-five, I’ll essentially be pushing thirty.”
Caspar Vega, The Sexorcism of Amber Holloway

“You're just another one of those disconnected, easily angered zombies who haven't really worked a day in their lives. Always eager to tell other people how to live and what to say. Posting pictures of their food every single day because that's a fucking achievement for them. Preparing a meal. You know, that thing you're supposed to do so you don't starve to death?”
Caspar Vega, Hayfoot

“You know nothing about pain. You know nothing about reality. All you know is what’s inside your bubble. Well, I'm the needle about to pop it. Just you wait.”
Caspar Vega, Hayfoot

“Do what thy manhood bids thee do,
from none but self expect applause.
He noblest lives and noblest dies
who makes and keeps his self-made laws.”
Sir Richard Francis Burton

“The cynicism that regards hero worship as comical is always shadowed by a sense of physical inferiority.”
Yukio Mishima, Sun and Steel

“I count him braver who overcomes his desires than him who conquers his enemies, for the hardest victory is over self.”
Aristotle

“There's a point, you know, where treachery is so complete and unashamed that it becomes statesmanship.”
George MacDonald Fraser, Flashman and the Mountain of Light

“I ain't saying you're a liar, because that wouldn't be polite. But I'll tell you this, ma'am. If I loved liars, I'd hug you to death.”
Jim Thompson, Pop. 1280
