What is your favourite book quote. Mine is:

“Nothing in this world is harder than speaking the truth, nothing easier than flattery.”
― Fyodor Dostoyevsky
from Crime and punishment.

One of my favorites, something related from The Brothers Karamazov:
"Above all, don't lie to yourself. Tha man who lies to himself and listens to his own lie comes to such a pass that he cannot distinguish the truth within him, or around him, and so loses all respect for himself and for others. And having no respect he ceases to love."
>>
"It's not so big. It's regular"

Toru Watanabe
Norwegian Wood
>>
We beat on, boats against the current, bourne back ceaselessly into the past

cliche I know

"They couldn't dominate Death inside the hospital, but they certainly made her behave. They had taught her manners. They couldn't keep death out, but while she was in she had to act like a lady. People gave up the ghost with delicacy and taste inside the hospital."

from Catch-22.
>>
"Kekekekekekeke"

Finnegans wake. Truly sublime desu.
>>
It's a metaphor, see:You put the killing thing right between your teeth, but you don't give it the power to do its killing

I used to analyze myself down to the last thread, used to compare myself with others, recalled all the smallest glances, smiles and words of those to whom I’d tried to be frank, interpreted everything in a bad light, laughed viciously at my attempts ‘to be like the rest’ –and suddenly, in the midst of my laughing, I’d give way to sadness, fall into ludicrous despondency and once again start the whole process all over again – in short, I went round and round like a squirrel on a wheel.

>>7595352
being self-conscious like that is narcissistic and makes you miserable, which is why all this buddhist "mindful" shit where you're supposed to be hyper conscious of every little thing you do is dumb as shit

"What’s burning a city—-compared to tearing the lid off hell and letting men see it?"

Francisco d'Anconia, from Atlas Shrugged

One that always stuck with me from C&P is "He is happiest who deceives himself best."
