“I look around, I look around and I see a lot of new faces, which means a lot of you have been breaking the first two rules of Fight Club. Man, I see in Fight Club the strongest and smartest men that have ever lived. I see all this potential and I see it squandered. God damn it, an entire generation pumping gas, waiting tables-slaves with white collars. Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we don’t need. We’re the middle children of history, men. No purpose or place, we got no Great War, no Great Depression. Our Great War is a spiritual war, our Great Depression is our lives. We’ve all been raised on television to believe that one day we’d all be millionaires and movie gods and rockstars-but we won’t, and we’re slowly learning that fact. And we’re very, very pissed off.”

Je vous ai vu en rêve cette nuit, on fumait et rigolait ensemble.
Andrei Tarkovsky

“Death doesn’t exist for me. I once dreamt I was dead. And it was such a relief–such lightness and incredible freedom! That very feeling of freedom and lightness made me believe that I was dead. That is, free from all bonds with this world. So death doesn’t exist for me. There is just suffering and pain. People often confuse the two–suffering and death. I might think differently when I have to face it some day.”
