The difference between how you look and how you see yourself is enough to kill most people. And maybe the reason vampires don’t die is because they can never see themselves in photographs or mirrors.

Chuck Palahniuk, Haunted

People fall so in love with their pain, they can’t leave it behind. The same as the stories they tell. We trap ourselves.

The only reason why we ask other people how their weekend was is so we can tell them about our own weekend.

Chuck Palahniuk, Invisible Monsters

In a world where billions believe their deity conceived a mortal child with a virgin human, it’s stunning how little imagination most people display.

Chuck Palahniuk, Rant

The unreal is more powerful than the real. Because nothing is as perfect as you can imagine it. Because its only intangible ideas, concepts, beliefs, fantasies that last. Stone crumbles. Wood rots. People, well, they die. But things as fragile as a thought, a dream, a legend, they can go on and on. If you can change the way people think. The way they see themselves. The way they see the world. You can change the way people live their lives. That’s the only lasting thing you can create.

Chuck Palahniuk, Choke
