Chuck Palahniuk (Quotes from Fight Club)

It's only after we've lost everything that we're free to do anything.

****

If you woke up at a different time, in a different place, could you wake up as a different person?

****

On a long enough timeline, the survival rate for everyone drops to zero.

****

Losing all hope was freedom.

****

Marla Singer, she's like the scratch on the roof of your mouth that would heal if you just stop tonguing it but you can't.

****

Marla’s philosophy of life is that she might die at any moment, the tragedy she said is that she didn’t.

****

No fear, no distractions. The ability to let that which does not matter, truly slide.

****

Now, a question of etiquette; as I pass, do I give you the ass or the crotch?

****

I say stop being perfect, I say let's evolve, and let the chips fall where they may.

****

The things you own, they end up owning you.

****

Self-improvement is masturbation. Now self-destruction..

****

Sticking feathers up your butt does not make you a chicken.

****

First you have to give up, first you have to know, not fear; know that someday you're gonna die.

****

The first soap was made from the ashes of heroes, like the first monkey shot into space! Without pain, without sacrifice, we would have nothing.

****

Stop trying to control everything and just let go.

****
