The world is a goddamned evil place, the strong prey on the weak, the rich on the poor; I’ve given up hope that there is a God that will save us all. How am I supposed to believe that there’s a heaven and a hell when all I see now is hell.
What can I say about life? Do I praise it for letting you live, or damn it for allowing the rest?
Superhuman effort isn't worth a damn unless it achieves results.
Any religion that professes to be concerned about the souls of men and is not concerned about the slums that damn them, the economic conditions that strangle them and the social conditions that cripple them is a spiritually moribund religion awaiting burial.
If an ad campaign is built around a weak idea - or as is so often the case, no idea at all - I don't give a damn how good the execution is, it's going to fail.
Just like the Alamo, somebody damn well needed to go to their aid. Well, by God, I'm going to Viet Nam's aid!
I don't know much about Americanism, but it's a damn good word with which to carry an election.
I don't want to be Babe Ruth. He was a great ballplayer. I'm not trying to replace him. The record is there and damn right I want to break it, but that isn't replacing Babe Ruth.
Beer, it's the best damn drink in the world.
Some borrowers are pretty damn good at fraud.
People got insights into what was bothering them, but they hardly did a damn thing to change.
Everyone on Twitter - everyone on the Internet - seems so damn certain. Brevity doesn't allow for nuance, and it's a nice complement to confidence.
What I have learned is that a whole lot of people with degrees don't know a damn thing, and a lot of people with no degrees are brilliant.
I bet there ain't anybody in South Africa wearing a button saying 'Free Compton' or 'California.' They don't give a damn about us, so why should we give a damn about them?
I mean, first of all, let me say whichever superhero first came up with the idea of wearing a cape, he wasn't really onto anything good. The number of times I'm treading on that damn thing or I throw a punch and it ends up covering my whole head. It's really not practical.
I'm a dirty south goon - damn right, I ain't no West coast gangster.
Do what you think is right, because one damn thing is an absolute, certainly: We come and go. Politicians are a dime a dozen.
No member of our generation who wasn't a Communist or a dropout in the thirties is worth a damn.
It's just like, damn - I'm competing with myself.
For myself, I haven't been content to carry on producing books that merely strain against the conventions - as I've grown older, and realised that there aren't that many books left for me to write, so I've become determined that they should be the fictive equivalent of ripping the damn corset off altogether and chucking it on the fire.
