"I want to perform an unnatural act."

"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

Screwtape Letters

Screwtape Letters - In The Screwtape Letters, Screwtape is a devil or demon of high ranking who is counseling his nephew Wormwood in acquiring the soul of a human.With wit and an even graceful flair, Screwtape instructs his nephew on human fallacies, and how to corrupt good intentions into selfishness and ultimately into sin.The character of Screwtape is so debonair and self-assured that he becomes amusing, even as his actions are detestable. The book is a good lesson for those who want to discover what a Christian believes and aspires to be, albeit from the opposite point of view, from demonic minds.While I didn't care for the overall message, which is inevitable in Christian fiction, I did enjoy these very different and unusual books, and I can see that this genre has gone from being stereotypical to being vast. A good book is a good book, even if I don't agree with the overall message.
