“I once heard the word 'conversation'
described as a progression of exchanges
but there is no progress here
so maybe I will instead compare this
to the bullet drop—the idea that if you shoot
a gun & drop a bullet from the same location
they will hit the floor at the same time,
hundreds of feet apart.

("The Lover as a Dream")”
Olivia Gatwood, Life of the Party

Basma Abdel Aziz
“The High Sheikh invoked a few passages from the Greater Book, explaining that if a believer were to be struck by a bullet (despite his prayers and supplication), his faith would guide him to the understanding that it was God himself who'd struck him down. A wounded believer should not despair or oppose God's will. Nor should he question the unquestionable - such an act could lead him down a perilous path toward doubt. Instead, the believer must accept the will of God. He must acknowledge how lucky he was to be struck by a bullet, and exalted to a place in heaven ordinarily reserved only for the most dutiful.”
Basma Abdel Aziz

Dmitry Glukhovsky
“Глядя на аккуратные ряды «пулек» на прилавках, Артем вспомнил слова своего отчима. «Я читал когда-то, что Калашников гордился своим изобретением, тем, что его автомат – самый популярный в мире. Говорил, счастлив тем, что именно благодаря его конструкции рубежи Родины в безопасности. Не знаю, если бы я эту машину придумал, я бы, наверное, уже с ума сошел. Подумать только, именно при помощи твоей конструкции совершается большая часть убийств на земле! Это даже страшнее, чем быть изобретателем гильотины».
Один патрон – одна смерть. Чья-то отнятая жизнь. Сто граммов чая – пять человеческих жизней. Батон колбасы? Пожалуйста, совсем недорого: всего пятнадцать жизней. Качественная кожаная куртка, сегодня скидка, вместо трехсот – только двести пятьдесят, вы экономите пятьдесят чужих жизней. Ежедневный оборот этого рынка, пожалуй, равнялся всему оставшемуся населению метро.”
Dmitry Glukhovsky, Metro 2033

Louis-Ferdinand Céline
“And anything that the boys could carry, they made off with. Combs, lamps, silly little things, even bridal wreaths, everything went. As if we'd had years of life ahead of us. They looted to take their minds off their troubles, to make it look as if they had years before them. Everybody likes that feeling.

As far as they were concerned, gunfire was nothing but noise. That's why wars can keep going. Even the people who make them, who fight in them, don't really get the picture. Even with a bullet in their gut, they'd go on picking up old shoes that 'might come in handy.' The way a sheep, lying on its side in a meadow, will keep on grazing with its dying breath. Most people don't die until the last moment; others start twenty years in advance, sometimes more. Those are the unfortunates.”
Louis-Ferdinand Céline, Journey to the End of the Night

“A bullet is like a word, when it flies out, you cannot catch it”
