Favorite Patricide Quotes

1. "Careers are not made in a family business, they are born – by patricide. Then they die from neglect, and avoid the tragedy of being put out of business."
Author: Bauvard
2. "Thieves are not so bad, and killing wears all possible costumes. There is no death, no murder that is better than any other. If you can kill me, the manner hardly bears consideration. You want to kill your own father, and you think it will make your sleep easier for the next seventy years if you can say you did it honorably. But your honor is blackened by patricide, and no amount of high-sounding formalities will make it white again."
Author: Catherynne M. Valente
3. "Postmodern irony and cynicism's become an end in itself, a measure of hip sophistication and literary savvy. Few artists dare to try to talk about ways of working toward redeeming what's wrong, because they'll look sentimental and naive to all the weary ironists. Irony's gone from liberating to enslaving. ... The postmodern founders' patricidal work was great, but patricide produces orphans, and no amount of revelry can make up for the fact that writers my age have been literary orphans throughout our formative years."
Author: David Foster Wallace
4. "My grandpa died yesterday. I ought to know, because I shot him. So come, join me in the fight against patricide by killing your father's father."
Author: Jarod Kintz
5. "My mother was a writer and a thinker and just about the last person anyone would expect to commit murder. Not just murder, patricide.  Yet - strange thing - when she said she hadn't done it, nobody believed her."
Author: Orna Ross

Today's Quote

I stood with my hands on the horses' necks, feeling the electricity of their thinking, the blood moving throughout their veins, and the history held neatly within the fabric of every organ of their equine anatomy, as if the body were a storage unit of memory. As I absorbed every nuance of the four-legged creatures, I touched my own stomach, lower back, liver, and spleen to see what the energies felt like. I compared one horse to another, then to myself, fascinated by the way each was so unique yet so the same."
