"People are dying from over thinking. They fill their brains with harsh thoughts and it brings the body down too. Chances are no one thinks as bad about you than you."
"Sometimes you know your villain is doing really terrible deeds but you want him to succeed because he’s doing it with such finesse. You want to see him get his comeuppance but you also want to see him pull it off. It’s a real paradox."
"Make it dark, make it grim, make it tough, but then, for the love of God, tell a joke."
"An intelligent hell would be better than a stupid paradise."
"A good scare is worth more than good advice."
"What does God want? Does God want goodness or the choice of goodness? Is a man who chooses the bad perhaps in some way better than a man who has the good imposed upon him?"
"I want people to be afraid of the women I dress."
"But some people can’t tell where it hurts. They can’t calm down. They can’t ever stop howling."
"Call him a Judas if you want
but he did it for reasons
much older than silver."
"I’m going to tell you what a demon once told me: It is okay to want your own happiness. It’s okay to care about yourself the most. It’s okay to do what’s healthy for YOU. When someone hits you, it’s okay to hit back and then ask them what the hell they expected. It’s okay. You are not obligated to sit there and smile and swallow every bit of shit everyone heaps on you. You are more than furniture, you’re more than window dressing, you’re not their shiny toy. You’re human, and you have the right to say “That was shitty of you”. You have a right to say “Let me feed that back to you; tell me, how does it taste?” You have a right to protest your own mistreatment and set boundaries for respectful interactions. The rest of the world doesn’t realize you have this right, and they will act offended and appalled when you exercise it, but it is yours."
