attention

I remember everything about you, you’re the one who wasn’t paying attention.

Suzanne Collins, The Hunger Games

Now that ceaseless exposure has calloused us to the lewd and the vulgar, it is instructive to see what still seems wicked to us. What still slaps the clammy flab of our submissive consciousness hard enough to get our attention?

Thomas Harris, Hannibal

I’ve never been that desperate for attention. Do not mistake me for one of those troubled preteens who walk around, practically wearing a T-shirt which says: ASK ME ABOUT MY RAPE.Or, ASK ME ABOUT MY ALCOHOLISM.

Chuck Palahniuk, Damned

You’re not listening to word I say. So I might as well have said, “blah blah blah, blah, blabbity blah blah.”

Wallace Fennel, Veronica Mars

That’s the price of doing business, isn’t it? If I’m asking you to invest your time and attention in a story I’m telling, it’s your right to tell me that you hate that story.

Damon Lindelof

I try not to go crazy, but yes, I pay attention to what I eat.

Eva Mendes

Big Brother isn’t watching. He’s singing and dancing. He’s pulling rabbits out of a hat. Big Brother’s busy holding your attention every moment you’re awake. He’s making sure you’re always distracted. He’s making sure you’re fully absorbed.

Chuck Palahniuk, Lullaby
