"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

Prozac Nation

Prozac Nation - Elizabeth Wurtzel Here's the thing: I don't know how to rate this. I loved it in college, when I was going through an emotional crisis so severe that I had to drop out, but upon rereads and further reflection, I realize that this book sort of suffered from "wrong candidate, right time."Wurtzel's description of depression was one of the best I've ever seen. She described it as a black wave that she can see coming, but once it pulls her under, it's too late. As for everything else...I guess I wanted more on depression rather than Wurtzel herself. But still, this book opened eyes and got people talking, so I don't think I could ever bring myself to dislike it.
