"I want to perform an unnatural act."

- Lenny Bruce



"I get a kick out of being an outsider constantly. It allows me to be creative. I don't like anything in the mainstream and they don't like me."

- Bill Hicks



"I don’t like ass kissers, flag wavers or team players. I like people who buck the system. Individualists. I often warn people: “Somewhere along the way, someone is going to tell you, ‘There is no “I” in team.’ What you should tell them is, ‘Maybe not. But there is an “I” in independence, individuality and integrity.’” Avoid teams at all cost. Keep your circle small. Never join a group that has a name. If they say, “We’re the So-and-Sos,” take a walk. And if, somehow, you must join, if it’s unavoidable, such as a union or a trade association, go ahead and join. But don’t participate; it will be your death. And if they tell you you’re not a team player, congratulate them on being observant."

-George Carlin



"The more I see, the less I know for sure."

- John Lennon

The Poison Eaters: And Other Stories

The Poison Eaters and Other Stories - Holly Black While this is shelved as YA, I think it would appeal to anyone looking for a short story collection that delves into fantasy and supernatural elements. I have my favorites in this book (The Night Market, The Coat of Stars, Paper Cuts Scissors [love the library references!], and The Poison Eaters), but the others had their moments as well. I like how Black crafts her stories, and while I'm not a huge faerie fan, I might take a gander at her popular Tithe books.These stories are haunting and well-told, and even the ones that didn't quite resonate with me still held my interest. This is definitely worth a read.
