David Guterson Quotes

"His cynicism - a veterans cynicism - was a thing that disturbed him all the time. It seemed to him after the war that the world was thoroughly altered. It was not even a thing you could explain to anybody, why it was that everything was folly. People appeared enormously foolish to him. He understood that they were only animated cavities full of jelly and strings and liquids. He had seen the insides of jaggedly ripped-open dead people. He knew, for instance, what brains looked like spilling out of somebodys head. In the context of this, much of what went on in normal life seemed wholly and disturbingly ridiculous."

Alex Lukeman Quotes

"Courage is accepting your fear and doing whatever needs to be done anyway. Cowards are people who cant face up to their fear and let it get the better of them. Theres always a place for courage. Theres always something that can be done. You might not see it right away. Sooner or later something comes to mind that can help you through it. You make up your mind that its okay to be afraid and you are going to be all right. Then you do what has to be done. Thats courage."

"But if objects for gratitude and admiration are our desire, do they notpresent themselves every hour to our eyes?
