    Your favorite quote from books.

    George Orwell

    "Under the spreading chestnut tree
    I sold you and you sold me.
    There lie they, and here lie we
    Under the spreading chestnut tree"


    "You're only a rebel from the waist downwards," he told her.


    Neil Gaiman

    I lost some time once. It's always in the last place you look for it.

    Anthony Burgess

    "The Korova milkbar sold milk-plus, milk plus vellocet or synthemesc or drencrom, which is what we were drinking. This would sharpen you up and make you ready for a bit of the old ultraviolence."

    "Well, well, well, well. If it isn't fat, stinking billygoat Billy-Boy in poison. How art thou, thy globby bottle of cheap, stinking chip-oil? Come and get one in the yarbles, if you have any yarbles, you eunuch jelly thou."

    "When a law is patently unjust, such as our tax law is, it's the duty of an honest man to subvert it."

    Wild Justice by Wilbur Smith

    when i quote it, i usually insert "drug laws are" for tax law is.

    "Too weird to live, too rare to die." -HST (obviously)

    "Quod scripsi scripsi" - Pontius Pilate and my favorite usage, Anthony Burgess in the forward for the rerelease of A Clockwork Orange in the U.S. with the reintroduction of the final chapter, which was omitted from the original U.S. version because "Americans prefer round numbers when it comes to number of chapters." Sadly, the movie was based on the edited version.

    "From my mother's sleep I fell into the State,
    And I hunched in its belly till my wet fur froze.
    Six miles from earth, loosed from the dream of life,
    I woke to black flak and the nightmare fighters.
    When I died they washed me out of the turret with a hose." - Randall Jarrell
    Peace and Humptiness Forever

    For us, violence was killing; there was no management involved. People were either dead, or they were not. I could not 'manage' my platoon up a hill. I had to lead them up there.

    I had to do more than keep them alive. I had to preserve their human dignity. I was making them kill, forcing them to commit the most uncivilized of acts, but at the same time I had to keep them civilized. That was my duty as their leader. . . War gives the appearance of condoning almost everything, but men must live with their actions for a long time afterward. A leader has to help them understand that there are lines they must not cross. He is their link to normalcy, to order, to humanity. If the leader loses his own sense of propriety or shrinks from his duty, anything will be allowed.
    . . . War is, at its very core, the absence of order; and the absence of order leads very easily to the absence of morality, unless the leader can preserve each of them in its place.
    James McDonough "Platoon Leader"

    Not necessarily my favorite, but it immediately comes to mind: "I was twelve, going on thirteen, the first time I saw a dead human being."
