John Kennedy Toole
- A Confederacy of Dunces
Between notes, he had contemplated means of destroying Myrna Minkoff but had reached no satisfactory conclusion. His most promising scheme had involved getting a book on munitions from the library, constructing a bomb, and mailing it in plain paper to Myrna. Then he remembered that his library card had been revoked.
- How to change someone's mind.
As long as someone is not lying, there are right. If two persons are saying two contradictory ideas, they are both right. What we need to realize is that the information used to form those two conflicting opinions are not the same. So instead of proving someone wrong, we should understand how they form those opinions and provide more information so that they could form a new opinion.
- Never Let Me Go
Memories, even your most precious ones, fade surprisingly quickly. But I don't go along with that. The memories I value most, I don't ever see them fading.
- East of Eden
A man, after he has brushed off the dust and chips of his life, will have left only the hard, clean questions: Was it good or was it evil? Have I done well - or ill?
- Crazy ex girlfriend
I was working hard at a New York job, making dough but it made me blue. One day I was crying a lot and so I decided to move to West Covina, California! Brand new pals and a new career... it happens to be where Josh lives, but that's not why I'm here!
- Books Aren't Just Books
Books aren't just books. They are more than just stories. They inspire people. Percy Jackson teaches you to protect those around you no matter what. Harry Potter teaches you to be brave when you are scared. The Hunger Games teach you that the most powerful weapon is your mind. These are not just fictional stories. They might be to you, but to me they are real because they give me strength.
- Defunding Obamacare filibuster on Senate floor
Do you like green eggs and ham? I do not like them, Sam-I-am. I do not like green eggs and ham. Would you like them here or there? I would not like them here or there. I would not like them anywhere. I do not like green eggs and ham. I do not like them, Sam-I-am. Would you like them in a house? Would you like them with a mouse? I do not like them in a house. I do not like them with a mouse. I do not like them here or there. I do not like them anywhere.

I'm on a sugar crash, I 'aint got no f**king cash. Maybe I should take a bath, Cut my f**king brain in half. I'm not lonely just a bit, tired of this f**king s**t, nothing that I write can make me, Feel good.

- Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc - Opening
Hope's Peak High School, solid core curriculum, sports, liberal arts. Like a prep school for over achievers. They cherry pick the best of the best from districts all over. Because it's government funded, we're talking crazy perks. Not gonna lie though, a kid like me cutting it here. I wasn't so sure. Lady luck got me enrolled, who knew if she'd be in it for the long hall.
- Say So
Day to night to morning, keep with me in the moment I'd let you had I known it, why don't you say so? Didn't even notice, no punches left to roll with You got to keep me focused, you want it, say so.
- Toxic Positivity
Pushing the concept that anyone can achieve their greatest dreams if only they want it badly enough or work at it hard enough is incredibly harmful. It convinces people who are born into good fortune that they are somehow deserving of their riches and comfort by their own merit, and it convinces those less fortunate people that their suffering is somehow their own fault, when in reality, we are all at the mercy of the roulette wheel of classist cruelty.
- Joker Quote And some of my quotes
We all stopped looking for monsters under our beds, when we realized the monsters were inside of us." "We all ran from the darkness as kids, now we just sit in darkness as teens and adults." "We stopped looking both ways for the threat of cars, when we realized they threat was inside us the whole time." "We change for people, not because we want to, its so that person is happy.

- Jojo's Bizarre Adventure's
Reading Jojo is kind of like those pretend fights you had when you were younger. You know the ones where you said something like "I shot you! You're dead!" But then your friend said "Nuh-uh, I have a diamond bullet proof vest!" To which you retort, "Well I shot you with a diamond bullet-proof vest piercing bullet!" and you just went back and forth like that until you just couldn't top the other kid.
As a child I was diagnosed with ADHD. Back then I always thought it was a farce, just a fake diagnoses to sell amphetamines to children. Now in my twenties I realize just how real it actually is. Focus is a commodity I am quite poor in and my short term memory is almost non-existent. It affects me in all facets of my life. Maybe I should bend back over for Big Pharma and let them pump me full of drugs to be more functional, but I don't think I will. There has to be another way to manage.
Have you ever thought that few people are lucky and you didn't get to live their life? But guess what, you are living a life which somebody else yearns for.
- Flowers for Algernon
"I don't know what's worse: to not know what you are and be happy, or to become what you've always wanted to be, and feel alone." Daniel Keyes, Flowers for Algernon.
- Do you think I could've?
Do you think.. Maybe.. If I had better luck, I could've.. been normal? Maybe.. I could have gone to school properly, I could've fallen in love and maybe, just maybe.. Be happy? I wonder how that would have looked like.. Maybe, if I wasn't such a mess, maybe I could've been somebody else.
Many men have within us the man-child who's still in that basement. The fortunate among us have left him behind, but we understand his appeal all too well. He's still there waiting-ready to take over in case our lives fall apart.
- True Key Heroism
After all this time, I should have the ability to hack a computer by pressing random keys on the keyboard, like they do in the movies. It's only fair.
