I believe everyone is inspired by a quote or two from influential people in the world to live by and to drive themselves. As for myself I draw inspiration from multiple quotes from multiple legendary figures both real life and in fiction. So I decided to start posting up the quotes that I love most in this world in multiple posts. So here we go:
“Maybe this is who I really am. Not a loner, exactly. But someone who can be alone.”
– Gary Shteyngart, Little Failure
“We do not require company. In varying degrees, it bores us, drains us, makes our eyes glaze over. Overcomes us like a steamroller. Of course, the rest of the world doesn’t understand.”
– Anneli Rufus, Party of One: The Loners’ Manifesto
“It’s not the face you’re given… it’s the face you choose.”
– Harvey “Two Face” Dent
“He looks determined without being ruthless, Something heroic in this man, there’s a courage about him. Doesn’t look like a killer, comes across so calm, acts like he has a dream… full of passion.
You don’t trust me huh?
Well you know why
I do… we’re not supposed to trust anyone in our profession anyway.”
– Raekwon “Incarcerated Scarfaces” (Only Built For Cuban Linx)
“I’d rather you hate me for something I am then love me for something I’m not”
– The Miz
“I like to keep things interesting. A wise man once told me that if you have to have an origin story, you’re better off making it multiple choice”.
– The Joker
“Emptiness is loneliness, and loneliness is cleanliness, and cleanliness is godliness, and god is empty just like me”
– “Zero” by The Smashing Pumpkins
“Better to be lucky than to be good”
– Bunk Moreland
“I’m a mercenary. I don’t play fair, I play what I want. When you deal with a mercenary, then all decorum gets tossed out the window, so you go ahead with your cute threats and your watch beeps. Order will not protect you anymore, my friend…I will reign….CHAOS….even if it hurts me. Because I would rather see you lose than win myself.”
– Mr. Robot
