“The past is full of if-onlys and they’re all bullshit.”
― Michael Rutger, The Anomaly

 “It’s never the world at large you want to prove yourself to. It’s someone in particular. Doesn’t matter how old you get, you’re still hoping for Mom or Dad to kiss you on the head.
And yes, that person should ideally be yourself, just as the answers to all our questions and the objects of our quests should most likely be found within our own souls. But they’re not. We need more. Someone or something bigger than us. A magical other.
And that’s why we reach for the gods.
Or for someone to love.”
― Michael Rutger, The Anomaly

“Most writers are lazy asses, physically at least. Sure, there are exceptions, like Hemingway, who’d leave the house to shoot something or get macho on a big fish, but I’ll bet even he was far happier back at home propping up the bar or on the porch communing with his cats in short, declarative sentences”
― Michael Rutger, The Anomaly

One Final Bonus – Michael Rutger Quote 

“That’s nice.”

“It is. And so I did not tell her that I’d written most of it while taking a shit. My point is neither you nor I know what will matter to the audience in the long run. The truth? Who gives a fuck? The Bible’s full of utter cock and there are ten thousand wankers out there using it as an excuse to behave like total fucking arseholes. Same as the Koran and the Talmud and probably whatever the fuck it is that Buddhists get their spells out of. But on the other hand there’s been millions of people, over thousand of years, who’ve got through the day because of that bullshit, or had their heart lifted, or looked at the world differently for ten minutes.”

― Michael Rutger, The Anomaly
