Below are the 10 breathtaking expressions:

  1. Life changes in a heartbeat (pg. 1)
  2. You’re always intensely alive the closer you come to looking death in the face (pg. 5)
  3. Life is strange. I don’t want to believe anything is preordained. To believe that, one would have to accept the existence of a visciously cruel higher power in order to explain things like Child abuse and rapists and AIDS and good men being shot death in the line of duty (pg. 7)

  5. We never know the quality of someone else’s life, though we seldom resist the temptation to assume and pass judgements (pg. 65)
  6. People see what they are programmed to see, they seldom look for anything else (pg. 66)
  7. The male ego is a fragile thing at seventeen or seventy (pg. 94)
  8. Delegating was something i was sure came quite easily to a man who had spent his entire life shirking any kind of responsibility (pg. 145)
  9. Conspiracy is the lesser of evils. Conspiracy can always be denied (pg. 207)
  10. I have never been hindered by the belief that people are basically good. In my experience, people are basically selfisdh and often cruel (pg. 212)
