1. "Vietnam, me love you long time. All day, all night, me love you long time.(...) Dropping acid on the Mekong Delta, smoking grass through a rifle barrel, flying on a helicopter with opera blasting out of loudspeakers, tracer-fire and paddy-field scenery, the smell of napalm in the morning. Long time."
Author: Alex Garland

3. "Como saben, me gusta recordar viejos episodios de nuestra Historia. Sobre todo si causan respeto por lo que algunos paisanos nuestros fueron capaces de hacer. O intentar. Situaciones con posible lectura paralela, de aplicación al tiempo en que vivimos. Les aseguro que es un ejercicio casi analgésico; sobre todo esos días funestos, cuando creo que la única solución serían toneladas de napalm seguidas por una repoblación de parejas mixtas compuestas, por ejemplo, de suecos y africanos. Sin embargo, cuando una de esas viejas historias viene a la memoria, concluyo que quizás no sea imprescindible el napalm. Siempre hubo aquí compatriotas capaces de hacer cosas que valen la pena, me digo. Y en alguna parte estarán todavía. Como estuvieron."
Author: Arturo Pérez Reverte

But that doesn't mean I'm going to spread them on my English muffin."
Author: Augusten Burroughs

If memory serves it was not the Vatican."

9. "Curiously I was unmoved by my work. Unaffected by the act of murder, I had become entirely numb. I couldn't understand how such detachment was possible-- but I did some digging.What I discovered would have horrified me... if I was capable of being horrified. My augmentation had included the binding of my DNA to some of history's most notorious assassins. Are you not getting this? I'll say it in plain English--- I am the perfect killer in every sense of the word--- ---because--- ---I--- ---am--- ---every--- killer.I'm the act of change possessed in a revolver. I am revolution packed into a suitcase bomb. I am ever Mark David Chapman and every Charlotte Corday. I am Luigi Lucheni slow-dancing with Balthasar to the tune of semi-automatics, while Gavrilo Princip masturbates in the corner with bath-tub napalm. I am all of them and so much more... because I am going to live forever." Number Five"
Author: Gerard Way
10. "What struck me as I began to study history was how nationalist fervor--inculcated from childhood on by pledges of allegiance, national anthems, flags waving and rhetoric blowing--permeated the educational systems of all countries, including our own. I wonder now how the foreign policies of the United States would look if we wiped out the national boundaries of the world, at least in our minds, and thought of all children everywhere as our own. Then we could never drop an atomic bomb on Hiroshima, or napalm on Vietnam, or wage war anywhere, because wars, especially in our time, are always wars against children, indeed our children."
Author: Howard Zinn
11. "If one morning in the Spring, a stranger came and said to me, Your mother, father, brother, sister, uncle, lover, friend, is dead. From a b-52, napalm bombing, search and destroy mission, air attack, Tet offensive, My Lai massacre, failed escape, I would not scream but make of my body a net, a tarp, stretched taut across the sky, the sea, over every village and hamlet. Prepared to catch everything from the sky, shade everything on the ground, rain water and receive you, war, with arms outstretched."
Author: Lê Thi Diem Thúy
12. "We weren't so much oil and vinegar as a lit match and napalm."
Author: Lola Dodge
13. "This way of settling differences is not just. This business of burning human beings with napalm, of filling our nation's homes with orphans and widows, of injecting poisonous drugs of hate into the veins of peoples normally humane, of sending men home from dark and bloody battlefields physically handicapped and psychologically deranged, cannot be reconciled with wisdom, justice, and love."
Author: Martin Luther King Jr.
14. "We've tried to live in balance with nature long enough. This time nature went too far. As soon as you and your fiance are safely out of here, I'm calling in an air strike to napalm this whole forest."
Author: Mykle Hansen
15. "The Deliverator belongs to an elite order, a hallow subcategory. He's got esprit up to here. Right now, he is preparing to carry out his third mission of the night. His uniform is black as activated charcoal, filtering the very light out of the air. A bullet will bounce off its arachnofiber weave like a wren hitting a patio door, but excess perspiration wafts through it like a breeze through a freshly napalmed forest. Where his body has bony extremities, the suit has sintered armorgel: feels like gritty jello, protects like a stack of telephone books."
Author: Neal Stephenson
16. "Today's theater-goer must live in dread of walking into a theater and discovering that some classic work has been given a modernized, socially relevant setting. Oedipus gouges his eyes with a spoon at a 1950's malt shop; Macbeth napalms Banquo in Viet Nam, Julius Caesar dies in Dallas in 1963. More and more, American theater is coming to resemble a season of Quantum Leap."
Author: Reduced Shakespeare Company
17. "Even if he doesn't eat, he knows the cookies. I'll bet his mother stuffed him full as a kid. (Tory)Not really. My mom wasn't the Betty Crocker kind. (Acheron)(Not unless it involved napalm or plagues.)"
Author: Sherrilyn Kenyon
18. "Et c'est alors que j'ai eu cette autre belle vision, une vision qui me plaisait : la vie ne s'arrête jamais. On peut lancer du napalm, on peut lancer du sel, on peut tuer tout le monde. Pendant un certain temps, on ne voit rien. Puis, paf ! une petite plante sort de terre, un marché réapparaît, deux personnes font l'amour, et la vie reprend son cours, avec cette avidité de vivre qui fait partie de la vie ! On sentait combien la présence de la vie était forte, vraiment forte. (p. 193)"
Author: Tiziano Terzani
