Cyril Wong quotes by Cyril Wong
#1. Soon we were downloading ourselves
into laptops, phones or pads, freer
than we had hoped,

floating centrifugally across the Internet
to swim alongside forgotten
selfies, spam emails and porn #Quote by Cyril Wong
Cyril Wong quotes by Cyril Wong
#2. We are nothing like the gods. We will never be
remembered for the time we attempted
the waltz on our balcony, as the stars
blinked drowsily, the moon like a frozen yawn.

Even with one of us gone, would not the mind
of the other reveal its universe, its constellation
of memories like a field of flickering candles,
the same face at the center of every flame? #Quote by Cyril Wong
Cyril Wong quotes by Cyril Wong
#3. It is the teacher's and the lawmaker's responsibility to allow the child to express his feelings about growing up. What happens to a child at that particular age? It is a terribly vulnerable time, and if we provide youths with an environment to
be free, to be expressive, without embarrassing them, without shaming them, they would grow up to be healthy, compassionate adults. Instead, if we force them to "belong, belong, belong," they all become repressed. There is a complete absence of options. #Quote by Cyril Wong
Cyril Wong quotes by Cyril Wong

Cyril Wong quotes by David Wong
#5. A lot of unemployment, though. We've got two closed factories and a rotting shopping mall that went bankrupt before it ever opened. We're not far from Kentucky, which marks the unofficial border to the South, so one sees more than enough pickup trucks decorated with stickers of Confederate flags and slogans proclaiming their brand of truck is superior to all others. Lots of country music stations, lots of jokes that contain the word "nigger." A sewer system that occasionally backs up into the streets for some unknown reason. Lots and lots of stray dogs around, many with grotesque deformities. #Quote by David Wong
Cyril Wong quotes by David Wong
#6. Of all the dogs I've known in my life, I've never seen a better driver. #Quote by David Wong
Cyril Wong quotes by Harry Wong

Cyril Wong quotes by B. D. Wong
#10. I was on 'SVU' for 11 years. I developed a muscle in my brain that could memorize things much more easily than people who don't do it every day. I got used to the language, and some of it got to be repetitive language, so you build your vocabulary. #Quote by B. D. Wong
Cyril Wong quotes by David Wong
#11. I heard a screeching like steam from a teapot, and realized it was me. #Quote by David Wong

Cyril Wong quotes by David Wong
#15. Deadworld? Is that where you're from?" "No, dude. That's where you're from. It's where we are now. This place, it's a horror show. If the guy next to you decides to knock you out of this world forever, he can do it with just a piece of metal or, hell, even his bare hand. You blobs, you sit there, chillin' in this room and I can smell the rot of dead animals soaking in the acid of your guts. You suck the life from the innocent creatures of this world just so you can clock another day. You're machines that run on the terror and pain and mutilation of other lives. You'll scrape the world clean of every green and living thing until starvation goes one-eight-seven on every one of your sorry asses, your desperation to put off death leadin' to the ultimate death of everybody and everything. Dude, I can't believe you ain't all paralyzed by the pure, naked horror of this place. #Quote by David Wong
Cyril Wong quotes by David Wong

Cyril Wong quotes by David Wong
#20. Scientists talk about dark matter, the invisible, mysterious substance that occupies the space between stars. Dark matter makes up 99.99 percent of the universe, and they don't know what it is. Well I do. It's apathy. That's the truth of it; pile together everything we know and care about in the universe and it will still be nothing more than a tiny speck in the middle of a vast black ocean of Who Gives a Fuck. #Quote by David Wong

To suffer wet damnation to run through 'em. #Quote by Cyril Tourneur
Cyril Wong quotes by William Finnegan
#26. And I saw surfing that day - by Leslie Wong, among others - that made my chest hurt: long moments of grace under pressure that felt etched deep in my being: what I wanted, somehow, more than anything else. That night, while my family slept, I lay awake on the bamboo-framed couch, heart pounding with residual adrenaline, listening restlessly to the rain. #Quote by William Finnegan
Cyril Wong quotes by David Wong
#27. Somebody said my name, asked if I was okay. I didn't answer, the sound of the commotion dying around me as the heavy monkey of sleep rested its warm, hairy ass on my eyelids. #Quote by David Wong

Cyril Wong quotes by Adam Ross
#31. I became a writer through drawing first and then a comic book obsession - Marvel Comics, in particular. I invented a world of superheroes starting in third grade with my classmate, Wai-Kwan Wong. In a classroom of forty kids, let's just say there was a lot of undirected time. But this was good because I was a dreamy boy. #Quote by Adam Ross
Cyril Wong quotes by Cyril Connolly
#32. Early laurels weigh like lead and of many of the boys whom I knew at Eton, I can say that their lives are over ... Once again romanticism with its death wish is to blame, for it lays an emphasis on childhood, on a fall from grace which is not compensated for by any doctrine of future redemption. #Quote by Cyril Connolly
Cyril Wong quotes by David Wong

He shook his head. "We always find a way. #Quote by David Wong
Cyril Wong quotes by John Boyne
#34. (Cyril and Alice talking about Maude Avery and her books)
'I occasionally get letters from students asking for help with their theses.'
'And do you offer it?'
'No. It's all there in the books themselves. There's nothing much I can add that would be of any use to anyone.'
'You're right,' said Alice. 'So why any of them feel the need to talk about their work in public or give interviews is beyond me. If you didn't say what you wanted to say in the pages themselves, then surely you should have done another draft.' (p. 271) #Quote by John Boyne
Cyril Wong quotes by Cyril Connolly
#35. A love affair is a grafting operation. "What has once been joined never forgets".

Cyril Wong quotes by David Wong
#41. From day one it was like society was this violent, complicated dance and everybody had taken lessons but me. Knocked to the floor again, climbing to my feet each time, bloody and humiliated. Always met with disapproving faces, waiting for me to leave so I'd stop fucking up the party.
The wanted to push me outside, where the freaks huddled in the cold. Out there with the misfits, the broken, the glazed-eye types who can only watch as the normals enjoy their shiny new cars and careers and marriages and vacations with the kids.
The freaks spend their lives shambling around, wondering how they got left out, mumbling about conspiracy theories and bigfoot sightings. Their encounters with the world are marked by awkward conversations and stifled laughter, hidden smirks and rolled eyes. And worst of all, pity. #Quote by David Wong
Cyril Wong quotes by David Wong
#42. The guy next to him looked like he had covered his body in glue and rolled through a knife store. At the bottom of the feed was a logo that said LEAGUE OF BADASS. #Quote by David Wong
Cyril Wong quotes by David Wong
#43. That is how the human brain works, when it looks at a formless cloud, it tries to see a shape, or a face, or otherwise associate it with something that makes sense in some known cultural context, like the proverbial image of the Virgin Mary seen in the grain of a tree stump, or a slice of toast. But make no mistake - the observer supplies the face. #Quote by David Wong
Cyril Wong quotes by Cyril Connolly

#47. There is no pain equal to that which two lovers can inflict on one another ... It is when we begin to hurt those whom we love that the guilt with which we are born becomes intolerable, and since all those whom we love intensely and continuously grow part of us, and since we hate ourselves in them, so we torture ourselves and them together. #Quote by Cyril Connolly
Cyril Wong quotes by David Wong
