Invisible Monsters.

The one you love and the one who loves you are never, ever the same person.

When we don't know who to hate, we hate ourselves.

All God does is watch us and kill us when we get boring. We must never, ever be boring.

Don't do what you want. Do what you don't want. Do what you're trained not to want. Do the things that scare you the most.

Hysteria is only possible with an audience.

It happens fast for some people and slow for some, accidents or gravity, but we all end up mutilated.

It's not living alone if you keep a rifle under the bed.

Nothing of me is original. I am the combined effort of everybody I've ever known.

People are all over the world telling their one dramatic story and how their life has turned into getting over this one event. Now their lives are more about the past than their future.

You can't base your life on the past or the present. You have to tell me about your future.

The best way is not to fight it, just go. Don't be trying all the time to fix things. What you run from only stays with you longer. When you fight something, you only make it stronger.

The most boring thing in the entire world is nudity. The second most boring thing is honesty.

The only reason why we ask other people how their weekend was is so we can tell them about our own weekend.

When nobody will look at you, you can stare a hole in them. Picking out all the little details you'd never stare long enough to get if she'd ever just return your gaze, this, this is your revenge.

When you don't share your problems, you resent hearing the problems of other people.

When you understand that what you're telling is just a story. It isn't happening anymore. When you realize the story you're telling is just words, when you can just crumble it up and throw your past in the trashcan, then we'll figure out who you're going to be.

Who you are moment to moment is just a story.

Your birth is a mistake you'll spend your whole life trying to correct.

This obsession with Palahniuk is unforgiving for me. Invisible Monsters is my all time favorite, not for it being the darkest, but for the color and humor. I almost consider it my bible for living. But I'm a strange one, what can you expect? Nothing less from moi, I hope. M.
