Edward Vilga
“Never invest so much in anyone romantically that you lose your head. The Buddha of casual sex, I remain detached at all costs.”
Edward Vilga, Downward Dog

Max Barry
“She had been in situations like this, where people said, Convince me, and in none of those had they actually wanted to be convinced. She could lay down a perfect argument and they just invented new bullshit on the spot to justify why the answer was still no. When people said, Convince me, she knew it didn’t mean they had an open mind. It meant they had power and wanted to enjoy it a minute.”
Max Barry, Lexicon

Edward Vilga
“[L]ike DiMaggio putting daily flowers on Marilyn’s grave, I find myself compulsively drifting past here every day in a vigil that only reinforces my unredeemability.”
Edward Vilga, Downward Dog

Max Barry
“All empires fall, eventually.”
“But why? It’s not for lack of power. In fact, it seems to be the opposite. Their power lulls them into comfort. They become undisciplined. Those who had to earn power are replaced by those who have known nothing else. Who have no comprehension of the need to rise above base desires.[”]”
Max Barry, Lexicon

Edward Vilga
“Over the years, I have perfected my “just rolled out of bed” style by, more often than not, just rolling out of bed. I’ve cultivated the look since I’ve found that ladies like my messy hair—it’s an excuse to run their fingers through it. More important, it’s yet another component to my whole strategy: nothing works better in a wolf’s quest for getting laid than looking like you’ve just gotten laid.”
Edward Vilga, Downward Dog
