“Hurray for me, and to hell with everyone else...”
“For sure, they don’t teach you this in history class, but in colonial times, the person who got left in the stocks overnight was nothing less than fair game for everybody to nail. Men or women, anybody bent over had no way of knowing who was doing the ram job, and this was the real reason you never wanted to end up here unless you had a family member or a friend who’d stand with you the whole time. To protect you. To watch your ass, for real.”  ― Chuck Palahniuk,  Choke

“For the first time in longer than I can remember, I feel peaceful. Not happy. Not sad. Not anxious. Not horny. Just all the higher parts of my brain closing up shop. The cerebral cortex. The cerebellum. That’s where my problem is. I’m now simplifying myself. Somewhere balanced in the perfect middle between happiness and sadness. Because sponges never have a bad day.”  ― Chuck Palahniuk,  Choke

“Big Brother isn’t watching. He’s singing and dancing. He’s pulling rabbits out of a hat. Big Brother’s busy holding your attention every moment you’re awake. He’s making sure you’re always distracted. He’s making sure you’re fully absorbed.”  ― Chuck Palahniuk,  Lullaby

“We are
Born like this
Into this
Into these carefully mad wars
Into the sight of broken factory windows of emptiness
Into bars where people no longer speak to each other
Into fist fights that end as shootings and knifings
Born into this
Into hospitals which are so expensive that it’s cheaper to die
Into lawyers who charge so much it’s cheaper to plead guilty
Into a country where the jails are full and the madhouses closed
Into a place where the masses elevate fools into rich heroes”
― Charles Bukowski

“You buy furniture. You tell yourself, this is the last sofa I will ever need in my life. Buy the sofa, then for a couple years you’re satisfied that no matter what goes wrong, at least you’ve got your sofa issue handled. Then the right set of dishes. Then the perfect bed. The drapes. The rug. Then you’re trapped in your lovely nest, and the things you used to own, now they own you.”  ― Chuck Palahniuk,  Fight Club

Quotations of Erwin Rommel    * “Sweat saves blood, blood saves lives, and brains saves both.”    * “Mortal danger is an effective antidote for fixed ideas.”    * “The best form of welfare for the troops is first-rate training.”    * “Don’t fight a battle if you don’t gain anything by winning.”    * “In a man-to-man fight, the winner is he who has one more round in his magazine.”    * “Courage which goes against military expediency is stupidity, or, if it is insisted upon by a commander, irresponsibility.”    * “So long as one isn’t carrying one’s head under one’s arm, things aren’t too bad.”    * “A risk is a chance you take; if it fails you can recover. A gamble is a chance taken; if it fails, recovery is impossible.”    * “There is one unalterable difference between a soldier and a civilian: the civilian never does more than he is paid to do.”    * “What difference does it make if you have two tanks to my one, when you spread them out and let me smash them in detail?”    * “The best plan is the one made when the battle is over.”    * “In the absence of orders, go find something and kill it.”    * “The officers of a panzer division must learn to think and act independently within the framework of the general plan and not wait until they receive orders.”    * “Men are basically smart or dumb and lazy or ambitious. The dumb and ambitious ones are dangerous and I get rid of them. The dumb and lazy ones I give mundane duties. The smart ambitious ones I put on my staff. The smart and lazy ones I make my commanders.”    * “Be an example to your men, in your duty and in private life. Never spare yourself, and let the troops see that you don’t in your endurance of fatigue and privation. Always be tactful and well-mannered and teach your subordinates to do the same. Avoid excessive sharpness or harshness of voice, which usually indicates the man who has shortcomings of his own to hide.”    * “The future battle on the ground will be preceded by battle in the air. This will determine which of the contestants has to suffer operational and tactical disadvantages and be forced throughout the battle into adoption compromise solutions.”    * “Anyone who has to fight, even with the most modern weapons, against an enemy in complete command of the air, fights like a savage against modern European troops, under the same handicaps and with the same chances of success.”    * “One must not judge everyone in the world by his qualities as a soldier: otherwise we should have no civilization.”    * “The art of concentrating strength at one point, forcing a breakthrough, rolling up and securing the flanks on either side, and then penetrating like lightning deep into his rear, before the enemy has time to react-is Blitzkrieg.”    * “Messages can’t be intercepted if they aren’t sent, can they?”    * “This business with the Jews has got to stop.”

A long time ago, the raven looked down from the sky and saw that the people of the world were living in darkness. 

The ball of light was kept hidden by a selfish old chief. 

So the raven turned himself into a spruce needle and floated on the river where the chief’s daughter came for water. 

She drank the spruce needle. 

She became pregnant and gave birth to a boy, who was the raven in disguise. 

The baby cried and cried until the chief gave him the ball of light to play with. 

As soon as he had the light, the raven turned back into himself. 

The raven carried the light into the sky. 

From then on, we no longer lived in darkness.
…sound vaguely familiar?
