Chuck Palahniuk's books


Honest is how I want to look. The truth doesn`t glitter and shine.

Earn money by taking surveys! International offer!

Leonardo`s Mona Lisa is just a thousand thousand smears of paint. Michelangelo`s David is just a million hits with a hammer. We`re all of us a million bits put together the right way.

The only difference between a suicide and a martyrdom really is the amount of press coverage.

The only reason why we ask other people how their weekend was is so we can tell them about our own weekend.

People don`t want their lives fixed. Nobody wants their problems solved. Their dramas. Their distractions. Their stories resolved. Their messes cleaned up. Because what would they have left? Just the big scary unknown.

People are all over the world telling their one dramatic story and how their life has turned into getting over this one event. Now their lives are more about the past than their future.

What people forget is a journey to nowhere starts with a single step, too.

It can only take a moment to waste the rest of your life.

The future you have, tomorrow, won`t be the same future you had, yesterday.

Beauty is power the same way money is power the same way a gun is power.

People have to really suffer before they can risk doing what they love.

Nothing is as good as you can imagine it. No one is as beautiful as she is in your head. Nothing is as exciting as your fantasy.

Without access to true chaos, we`ll never have true peace. Unless everything can get worse, it won`t get any better.

If I can`t be beautiful, I want to be invisible.

Did perpetual happiness in the Garden of Eden maybe get so boring that eating the apple was justified?
