A Quote by Chuck Palahniuk on addiction and death

Here, I'm supposed to tell her the truth. I admire addicts. In a world where everybody is waiting for some blind, random disaster or some sudden disease, the addict has the comfort of knowing what will most likely wait for him down the road. He's taken some control over his ultimate fate, and his addiction keeps the cause of his death from being a total surprise.
In a way, being an addict is very proactive.
A good addiction takes the guesswork out of death. There is such a thing as planning your getaway.

We all die. The goal isn't to live forever, the goal is to create something that will.

A Quote by Chuck Palahniuk

Every breath is a choice.

Every minute is a choice.

To be or not to be.

Every time you don't throw yourself down the stairs, that's a choice. Every time you don't crash your car, you re-enlist.

Only when we eat up this planet will god give us another. We will be remembered more for what we destroy than what we create.

A Quote by Chuck Palahniuk

The trick to forgetting the big picture is to look at everything close-up. The shortcut to closing a door is to bury yourself in details.

A Quote by Chuck Palahniuk

I felt like putting a bullet between the eyes of every Panda that wouldn't screw to save its species. I wanted to open the dump valves on oil tankers and smother all the French beaches I'd never see. I wanted to breathe smoke.

A Quote by Chuck Palahniuk

What I want is to be needed. What I need is to be indispensable to somebody. Who I need is somebody that will eat up all my free time, my ego, my attention. Somebody addicted to me. A mutual addiction.
