1. "Sen beni öpersen belki de askimiz pratik karsilik bulurNe ikna edici bir intihar girisimidir simdi göz göze gelmakElbette ata binmek gibidir seni sevmek sevgilimElbette gayet rasyoneldir attan atlamak -Freud diye bir sey yoktur.Sen beni öpersen belki de ben gangsterlesirimBelki de sair olurum seni de aldiririm yanimaBilesin; gögsümde hangi yöne açmis tek gülsünYani ya bu eller öpülür, ya sen öldürülürsün. -Haydi iç de çay koyayim."

We do pish-heid bampot bludgeoning his girlfriend to death in a fit of paranoid rage induced by forty-eight hours straight on the batter. We do coked-up neds jumping on a guy's heid outside a nightclub because he looked at them funny. We do drug-dealing gangster rockets shooting other drug-dealing gangster rockets as comeback for something almost identical a fortnight ago. We do bam-on-bam. We do tit-for-tat, score-settling, feuds, jealousy, petty revenge. We do straightforward. We do obvious. We do cannaemisswhodunit. When you hear hoofbeats on Sauchiehall Street, it's gaunny be a horse, no' a zebra...'."
Author: Christopher Brookmyre

Author: George Mikes

If we ever make a new world you'll have no place in it. You don't seem to understand what it means to give and take. You're an intellectual hobo… At times I don't understand you at all. You're always gay and affable, almost sociable, and yet … well, you have no loyalties. I try to be friends with you … we were friends once, you remember … but you've changed … you're hard inside … you're untouchable. God, you think I'm hard … I'm just cocky, pugnacious, full of spirits. You're the one who's hard. You're a gangster, do you know that? He chuckled. Yes, Henry, that's what you are—you're a spiritual gangster. I don't trust you."
Author: Henry Miller
15. "Today the individual has become the highest form, and the greatest bane, of artistic creation. The smallest wound or pain of the ego is examined under a microscope as if it were of eternal importance. The artist considers his isolation, his subjectivity, his individualism almost holy. Thus we finally gather in one large pen, where we stand and bleat about our loneliness without listening to each other and without realizing that we are smothering each other to death. The individualists stare into each other's eyes and yet deny each other's existence. We walk in circles, so limited by our own anxieties that we can no longer distinguish between true and false, between the gangster's whim and the purest ideal."
Author: Ingmar Bergman

28. "Gangsters live for the action. The closer to death, the nearer to the heated coil of the moment, the more alive they feel. Most would rather succumb to a barrage of bullets from a roomful of sworn enemies than to the debilitation of old age, dying the death of the feeble. A gangster becomes as addicted to the thrill of the battle and the potential to die in the midst of it as he does to he more attractive lures in his path. In his world, the potential for death exists every day. The better gangsters don't shy away from such a dreaded possibility but rather find comfort in its proximity."
Author: Lorenzo Carcaterra

But to end the life of someone once considered close, regardless of any previous betrayal, requires a determination that few men possess."
Author: Lorenzo Carcaterra

I don't care what supposedly got promised to some sandal-wearing idiot whose claim to fame is that he was ready to cut his own son's throat for the sake of a hare-brained idea.
