The most dangerous irony is, people are angry with others because of their own incompetence.
Anaïs Nin
We must avoid possession, he said. But, oh, let me kiss you.
Andrew Clements
Two wrongs don't make a right, but don't three lefts make a right? Two wrongs don't make a right, but don't two negatives make a positive?
Charles Bukowski
What is your advice to young writers? Drink, fuck and smoke plenty of cigarettes.

And a beautiful world we live in, when it is possible, and when many other such things are possible, and not only possible, but done-- done, see you!-- under that sky there, every day.
Criss Jami
Pure wisdom is the 'fruit of life'; banal platitudes are the 'bane of existence'.
Criss Jami
If you want to know how negative you are, pay attention to how much you hate negativity in other people. Fragile, artificial positivity needs always to be surrounded by more positivity in order to stay positive, but the ability to be positive, happy, and even, at times, appreciative around 'negative people' is the mark of real positivity.
Criss Jami
There is this common notion that young conservatives are the few, that most people had liberal worldviews when they were young. If this is true, then it is with great irony that a number of old liberals must never had progressed into conservatives as they grew older.

I was making pancakes the other day and a fly flew into the kitchen. And that's when I realized that a spatula is a lot like a fly swatter. And a crushed fly is a lot like a blueberry. And a roommate is a lot like a fly eater.
E.A. Bucchianeri's just another one of those things I don't understand: everyone impresses upon you how unique you are, encouraging you to cultivate your individuality while at the same time trying to squish you and everyone else into the same ridiculous mould. It's an artist's right to rebel against the world's stupidity.
George R.R. Martin
We were talking about the prince,' Sansa said, her voice soft as a kiss.Arya knew which prince she meant: Joffrey, of course. The tall, handsome one. Sansa got to sit with him at the feast. Arya had to sit with the little fat one. Naturally.

Shouldn't someone give a pep talk or something?' Minho asked...Go ahead, Newt replied.Minho nodded and faced the crowd. 'Be careful,' he said dryly. 'Don't die.'Thomas would have laughed if he could, but he was too scared for it to come out.'Great. We're all bloody inspired,' Newt answered.
Joseph Heller
Morale was deteriorating and it was all Yossarian's fault. The country was in peril; he was jeopardizing his traditional rights of freedom and independence by daring to exercise them.
Lauren Kate
Cam's wings were so bright they were almost blinding as they pulsed. Holy Hell, Callie whispered, blinking.More or less, Arriane said

They would sweep their poverty under the carpet if only they had one.

No one plows the field just by thinking about it.

-He loved her...It was noble of him. It was beautiful.-It was stupid.
Margaret Mitchell
A new baby! Why, Scarlett, this is a surprise! he laughed, leaning down to push the blanket away from Ella Lorena's small ugly face. - Rhett Butler

Famine sometimes increases the number of people who are overweight.
Nikki Rowe
He stirred my soul in the most subtle way and the story between us wrote itself.
Philip José Farmer
It was the essence of life to disbelieve in death for one's self, to act as if life would continue forever. And life had to act also as if little issues were big ones. To take a realistic attitude toward life and death meant that one lapsed into unreality. Into insanity. It was ironic that the only way to keep one's sanity was to ignore that one was in an insane world or to act as if the world were sane.
Rhys Bowen
I gather you weren't keen on going back to Scotland with your brother at this time of year. I don't say I blame you. Terribly bleak and cutoff in the winter.Oh no, Mom, I said, as her words sunk in. My brother is not going back to Scotland. He and my sister-in-law are going to the Riviera.The Riviera? I had no idea.For my sister-in-law's health. She's feeling rather frail at the moment.I don't think that frail would ever be a word to describe your sister-in-law, the Queen said, looking up with a half smile on her lips as a tray of coffee was reeled into the room.I managed to have six children without making a fuss. One just got on with it.
Seanan McGuire
If anything attacked us, we could just panic at it until it went away.
Susan Kay
And it's really very difficult to kill someone when all your inner instincts would oblige you to take off your hat first!
Terry Pratchett
Just to keep the bad dreams at bay, she took a swig out of a bottle that smelled of apples and happy brain-death.
Terry Pratchett
(About sweeping)....What he was in FACT doing was moving the dirt around with a broom, to give it a change of scenery and a chance to make new friends.
Terry Pratchett
People who didn't need people needed people around to know that they were the kind of people who didn't need people.
Viet Thanh Nguyen
Before I only wanted to change the world. I still want that, but it was ironic how I never wanted to change myself. Yet that's where revolutions start! And it's the only way revolutions can continue, if we keep looking inward, looking at how others might see us. That's what happened when I met Sofia. I saw myself the way she saw me.
Vladimir Nabokov
[...] and I switched to English literature, where so many frustrated poets end as pipe-smoking teachers in tweeds.
William Faulkner
I'm bad and I'm going to hell, and I don't care. I'd rather be in hell than anywhere where you are.
