Elizabeth (candlestick) | 4 comments I've met God across his long walnut desk with his diplomas hanging on the wall behind him, and God asks me, "Why?" Why did I cause so much pain? Didn't I realize that each of us is a sacred, unique snowflake of special unique specialness? Can't I see how we're all manifestations of love? I look at God behind his desk, taking notes on a pad, but God's got this all wrong. We are not special. We are not crap or trash, either. We just are. We just are, and what happens just happens. And God says, "No, that's not right." Yeah. Well. Whatever. You can't teach God anything.
~Chuck Palahniuk, Fight Club, Chapter 30

Elizabeth (candlestick) | 4 comments Thanks, you should read Fight Club! The whole entire book is funny and just downright disturbing. Definitely don't read it to the kids, but don't die without giving it a chance!

Jenna (jentobox) | 1 comments Great quote. Ha ha. I just started getting really into Chuck Palahniuk but I haven't picked up Fight Club yet. I'll have to get to that soon. Thanks.

Karey (kareyshane) "If thou of fortune be bereft,
and in thy store there be but left two loaves,
sell one, and with the dole
buy hyacinths to feed thy soul."

James Russell Lowell
from The Vision of Sir Launfal

Heather (miss_lord) | 12 comments “Misadventure fell on my misfortune, a further misadventure fell on that misadventure and before long the misadventures were falling thickly on the first misfortune and on myself. Then a shower of misfortunes fell on the misadventures, heavy misadventures fell on the misfortunes after that and finally one great brown misadventure came upon everything, quenching the light and stopping the course of life.”
- Flann O'Brien
