I don't believe in anything. I'm just here for the violence.
(Sylvia to character in book she is reading, Death by) Get out of that tub! Get in your car and get out of there! (Character) Suddenly I felt compelled to get out of that tub and out of that motel. I dressed and hopped in my car. Later I stopped for gas, and met a great guy. We got married and raise cocker spaniels.
I'm never going to sing another song I don't believe in. I'm never going to make another picture I don't believe in.
I'm not afraid of death. Death's afraid of me.
Don't be afraid to feel as angry or as loving as you can, because when you feel nothing, it's just death.
I'm not afraid of life and I'm not afraid of death: Dying's the bore.
I'm not afraid of death myself, because I'm not gonna know I'm dead. I'm awed a bit by the idea, but I'm perfectly reconciled to it. Certainly I am, as everyone is, reconciled to everyone else's death but their own. They think an exception can be made in their own case.

In spite of being arrested, beaten up, threatened, the moment I discovered my voice, that I could actually stand up for what I really believed in, I'm no longer afraid. I used to be called softy, but I'm no longer softy, because I discovered who I really am, as in, that's what I want to do, and there's such beauty in doing that. There's nothing as powerful as that, knowing that I'm meant to do this, because you don't get scared, you just continue living your life.
I don't believe in God, but I'm afraid of Him.
