Martin vs Mystery Men

Reading ‘Yellow Dog’ by Martin Amis reminded me again of why I rate him so much.

“The wind was committing murders in the night, sudden abductions, terrible smotherings…”

“He finished the bottle of wine, that night. He needed a bottle of wine to get him through it: that is to say, he needed a bottle of wine to get him through an evening with only a bottle of wine to get him through it.”

I also watched a movie with great quotes in it over the weekend: Mystery Men!

“I don’t need a compass to know which way the wind shines.”

“He who questions training only trains himself in asking questions.”

“When you doubt your powers, you give power to your doubts.”

“We have a blind date with destiny and it looks like she’s ordered lobster”
