'i was really very unsettled by him + i started watching everything he did + reading what he wrote, + watching him on videotape. i felt he was disturbed ... fits the profile of a former drinker whose alcoholism has been arrested but not treated.'

'i trust god speaks through me. without that, i couldn't do my job.'

'some among bush's trusted white house staff fear what they are seeing + where bush is taking us. his state of mind hauntingly reminds them of richard nixon's final days. they fear bush is becoming nixonesque . . . or worse. although bush lacks nixon's paranoia, he may entertain even more dangerous notions.'

'all i have in common with the uncontrollable + the insane, the vicious + the evil, all the mayhem i have caused + my utter indifference toward it i have now surpassed. my pain is constant + sharp + i do not hope for a better world for anyone, in fact i want my pain to be inflicted on others. i want no one to escape, but even after admitting this there is no catharsis, my punishment continues to elude me + i gain no deeper knowledge of myself; no new knowledge can be extracted from my telling.'
--patrick bateman, american psycho (2000)
