“Don’t become a well-rounded person. Well-rounded people are smooth and dull. Become a thoroughly spiky person. Grow spikes from every angle. Stick in their throats like a pufferfish.”
“Trick suffering into becoming creativity – that’s magic.”
“The truth is a stranger…Not always welcome by daylight.”
“See, the world is full of things more powerful than us. But if you know how to catch a ride, you can go places.”
