Sub sloganul „His quotes are just as powerful out of the context as they are in it.”, site-ul lui Chuck Palahniuk este o opţiune decentă şi agreabilă pentru cei care vor să se relaxeze, să mai zâmbească din când în când (asta doar în contextul în care nu o fac deja), dar mai ales pentru că ce spunem noi în douăzeci de fraze, el e capabil să sintetizeze în două.

„That’s the American Dream: to make your life into something you can sell.”
„The world will always punish the few people with special talents the rest of us don’t recognize as real.”

„You can only hold a smile for so long, after that it’s just teeth.”
„We’ll be remembered more for what we destroy than what we create.”
„Some people are just born human. The rest of us, we take a lifetime to get there.”
„It’s clear enough, nobody understands me here.”
„We’ve all been raised on television to believe that one day we’d all be millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars. But we won’t. And we’re slowly learning that fact. And we’re very, very pissed off.„
