I've long had the concept that if someone fails to understand this book / film they have something wrong with them (the ability to follow the plot) & also if anyone reads it or watches the film & isn't blown away by Tyler logic & can relate to what the film says they are the kinda person I really want to keep well away from.
“You are not your job, you're not how much money you have in the bank. You are not the car you drive. You're not the contents of your wallet. You are not your fucking khakis. You are all singing, all dancing crap of the world.”
“I let go. Lost in oblivion. Dark and silent and complete. I found freedom. Losing all hope was freedom.”
“May I never be complete. May I never be content. May I never be perfect.”
“We’re the middle children of history, man. No purpose or place. We have no Great War. No Great Depression. Our Great War’s a spiritual war… our Great Depression is our lives.
