I’ve spent so much time making sure I don’t underestimate my opponents that I’ve forgotten it’s just as dangerous to overestimate them as well.

Suzanne Collins, The Hunger Games

If the living are haunted by the dead, then the dead are haunted by their own mistakes.

Chuck Palahniuk, Damned

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

Depeche Mode, Question of Lust

It’s a mistake to read. Television is the only way.

Conan O’Brien

A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new.

Albert Einstein

I’m selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can’t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best.

Marilyn Monroe

Live all you can: it’s a mistake not to. It doesn’t matter what you do in particular, so long as you have had your life. If you haven’t had that, what have you had?

Henry James, The Ambassadors

Your birth is a mistake you’ll spend your whole life trying to correct.

Chuck Palahniuk, Invisible Monsters

My best advice for writers is: Have your adventures, make your mistakes, and choose your friends poorly — all these make for great stories.

Chuck Palahniuk
