“Paranoia is a form of awareness.”
― Peter Robinson, Bad Boy

 “He had been working at the wall for too long. Why he bothered the Lord only knew. After all, it went nowhere and closed in nothing.

One Final Bonus – Peter Robinson Quote 

“But what Nev does is he takes these kids’ anger and channels it. He gives them someone to hate. He gives their rage some structure and provides them with real targets rather than nebulous ones. So they end up believing they’re committing theft, assault and vandalism for a good cause. Isn’t that what terrorism is basically all about, anyway? Add a few olde worlde patriotic values, a lot of guff about the ‘true English homeland’ and a bit of green to the mix and it makes them feel like downright responsible and virtuous citizens, the only ones who really care about their country.”

― Peter Robinson, Blood At The Root
