"Me, I want to bloody kick this moronic bloody world in the bloody teeth over and over till it bloody understands that not hurting people is ten bloody thousand times more bloody important than being right."

David Mitchell, Black Swan Green.

"

Right now. That’s what freaks me. I dip my fountain pen into a pot of ink, and a Wessex helicopter crashes into a glacier on South Georgia. I line up my protractor on an angle in my Maths book and a Sidewinder missile locks onto a Mirage III. I draw a circle with my compass and a Welsh Guard stands up in a patch of burning gorse and gets a bullet through his eye.

How can the world just go on, as if none of this is happening?

"

David Mitchell, Black Swan Green.

War’s an auction where whoever can pay the most in damage and still be standing wins.

"Nineteen out of how many?" Mum spoke through her fingers.

I knew the answer ‘cause of my scrapbook. “About three hundred.”

Julia calculated, “Better than ninety percent chance that Tom’s okay, then.”

Mum’d gone pale.

War maybe an auction for countries. For soldiers it’s a lottery.

David Mitchell, doing it again. In 2006, but I’m just getting to it now. Consistently one of my favorites.

Every waking moment

is an opportunity
for us all to
think more or
less of ourselves
than we actually
are, crimes; and
I am typically
in the process of
committing one.
