David Sedaris
“When shit brings you down, just say 'fuck it', and eat yourself some motherfucking candy.”
David Sedaris, Me Talk Pretty One Day

Shannon L. Alder
“I don't understand women that call themselves a "bitch". It doesn't empower a woman. Rather, it reveals to everyone that you were deeply hurt at one time. Because of the pain your still carrying, you will continue to hurt anyone that reminds you of those moments when you let your guard down and were fooled. Sadly, it sends a clear message to the observant that you are still hurt. If only women would realize that "we all" have moments of stupidity then they would stop comparing themselves to the masses.”
Shannon L. Alder

Mark Z. Danielewski
“By now you've probably noticed that except when safely contained by quotes, Zampanò always steers clear of such questionable four-letter language. This instance in particular proves that beneath all that cool psuedo-academic hogwash lurked a very passionate man who knew how important it was to say "fuck" now and then, and say it loud too, relish its syllabic sweetness, its immigrant pride, a great American epic word really, starting at the lower lip, often the very front of the lower lip, before racing all the way to the back of the throat, where it finishes with a great blast, the concussive force of the K catching up then with the hush of the F already on its way, thus loading it with plenty of offense and edge and certainly ambiguity. FUCK. A great by-the-bootstrap prayer or curse if you prefer, depending on how you look at it, or use it, suited perfectly for hurling at the skies or at the world, or sometimes, if said just right, for uttering with enough love and fire, the woman beside you melts inside herself, immersed in all that word-heat.”
Mark Z. Danielewski, House of Leaves

Rick Riordan

Ilona Andrews
“Any messages for me?" Usually I got one or two, but mostly people who wanted my help preferred to talk in person.
"Yes. Hold on." She pulled out a handful of pink tickets and recited from memory, without checking the paper. "Seven forty-two a.m., Mr. Gasparian: I curse you. I curse your arms so they wither and die and fall off your body. I curse your eyeballs to explode. I curse your feet to swell until blue. I curse your spine to crack. I curse you. I curse you. I curse you.”
Ilona Andrews, Magic Bleeds

Gordon Korman
“The au pair was bug-eyed. "What happened back there?"
"It's not our fault!" Dan babbled. "Those guys are crazy! They're like mini-Darth Vaders without the mask!"
"They're Benedictine monks!" Nellie exclaimed. "They're men of peace! Most of them are under vows of silence!"
"Yeah, well, not anymore," Dan told her. "They cursed us out pretty good. I don't know the language, but some things you don't have to translate.”
Gordon Korman, One False Note

David  Wong

David Wong, John Dies at the End

James Rozoff
“Vulgarity is like a fine wine: it should only be uncorked on a special occasion, and then only shared with the right group of people.”

Elizabeth Peters
“The cat Horus shot out from under the table and headed for the door, his ears flattened and his tail straight out. There he encountered Abdullah, who had been waiting for us on the verandah and who had, I supposed, been alarmed by Emerson's shouts and hurried to discover what disaster had prompted them. The cat got entangled in Abdullah's skirts and a brief interval of staggering (by Abdullah), scratching (by Horus) and swearing (by both parties) ensued before Horus freed himself and departed. ”
Elizabeth Peters, The Ape Who Guards the Balance

Catherynne M. Valente
“September knew a number of curse words, most of which she heard the girls at school saying in the bathrooms, in hushed voices, as if the words could make things happen just by being spoken, as if they were fairy words, and had to be handled just so.”
Catherynne M. Valente, The Girl Who Fell Beneath Fairyland and Led the Revels There

C.B. Lee
“We can't just sit on our asses and not live our lives while we're trying to expose a corrupt government.”

“I curse when I get really upset. Letting off steam that way makes me feel a little bit better. I've been through a lot, but I have never had the urge to go postal. I thank fuck for that.”
Oliver Markus Malloy, Bad Choices Make Good Stories - Going to New York

“Medical studies have shown that cursing reduces levels of stress and pain. Repressing your anger is not healthy. It's much better to verbalize it, and let off steam. Maybe all that repressed anger is the reason why there are so many serial killers in America.”
Oliver Markus Malloy, Bad Choices Make Good Stories - Going to New York

Marie Brennan
“When I finally did confront Mr. Arcott, after my return to Falchester, he had the cheek to try and argue that his intellectual thievery had been a compliment and a favor. After all, it meant my work was good enough to be accepted into ibn Khattusi's series -- but of course they never would have taken a submission from a woman, so he submitted it on my behalf. What I said in reply is not fit to be printed here, as by then I had spent a good deal of time in the company of sailors, and had at my disposal a vocabulary not commonly available to ladies of quality.”
Marie Brennan, The Voyage of the Basilisk

“I worked hard as [fuck] to get here.”
Jackson Lanzing, Joyride Vol. 2

Kurt Vonnegut
“It is true that some of the characters speak coarsely. That is because people speak coarsely in real life. Especially soldiers and hardworking men speak coarsely, and even our most sheltered children know that. And we all know, too, that those words really don't damage children much. They didn't damage us when we were young. It was evil deeds and lying that hurt us.”
Kurt Vonnegut, If This Isn't Nice, What Is?: Advice for the Young

Pat Shand
“Well, this has been some shit.”
Pat Shand, Destiny, NY, Volume One: Who I Used to Be

“To some believers, being on the pill or using a condom is a nonverbal way of telling God to go to hell.”
Mokokoma Mokhonoana, The Use and Misuse of Children

J.P. Sexton
“I think, generally speaking, that children have a knack for picking up curse words. Having said that, my brother and I (although admittedly, it was I who displayed a higher level of fluency) took to cursing like frogs take to jumping. Mind you, we received excellent tutoring along the way.”
J.P. Sexton, The Big Yank: Memoir of a Boy Growing Up Irish

Kelly Thompson

Allison Robicelli
“If it wasn't for curse words and grandoise hand gestures, I don't know if Brooklynites would even be able to communicate. In fact, I had requested that holograms of me making dramatic hand gestures be included in this book, but my publisher said it was "too expensive", which is total fucking bullshit.”
Allison Robicelli, Robicelli's a Love Story, with Cupcakes: With 50 Decidedly Grown-Up Recipes
