They erase my face with a layer of pale makeup and draw my features back out.

Suzanne Collins, Catching Fire

All that we see or seem is but a dream within a dream.

Stephen King, Doctor Sleep

I think reality is thin, you know, thin as lake ice after a thaw, and we fill our lives with noise and light and motion to hide that thinness from ourselves.

Stephen King, Bag of Bones

I love Halloween. The one time of year when everyone wears a mask… not just me. People think it’s fun to pretend you’re a monster. Me, I spend my life pretending I’m not. Brother, friend, boyfriend – all part of my costume collection. Some people might call me a fraud. Let’s see if it will fit. I prefer to think of myself as a master of disguise.


Most people have a hard time dealing with death, but I’m not most people. It’s the grief that makes me uncomfortable. Not because I’m a killer. Really, I just don’t understand all that emotion, which makes it tough to fake. In those cases, shades come in handy.


You can only hold a smile for so long, after that it’s just teeth.

Chuck Palahniuk, Invisible Monsters

The worst crime is faking it.

Kurt Cobain, Nirvana
