 “I remember I wanted to get away; I wanted to run. I couldn’t stand any more. But I didn’t want to run. I wanted everything to be perfect; everything was going to be great – I just had to be careful. I was responsible for it all. The clouds coming, I was dragging them towards us; my thoughts were doing it. I was ruining everything. It was up to me. I could control the whole day. All I had to do was make sure that I made no stupid mistakes. Don’t walk on the cracks. Don’t look at the clouds. It’s up to you.”
― Roddy Doyle, The Woman Who Walked Into Doors

One Final Bonus – Roddy Doyle Quote 

“Fuck was the best word. The most dangerous word. You couldn’t whisper it. Fuck was always too loud, too late to stop it, it burst in the air above you and fell slowly right over your head. There was total silence, nothing but Fuck floating down. For a few seconds you were dead, waiting for Henno to look up and see Fuck landing on top of you. They were thrilling seconds-when he didn’t look up. It was a word you couldn’t say anywhere. It wouldn’t come out unless you pushed it. It made you feel caught and grabbed you the minute you said it. When it escaped it was like an electric laugh, a soundless gasp followed by the kind of laughing only forbidden things could make, an inside tickle that became a brilliant pain, bashing at your mouth to be let out. It was agony. We didn’t waste it.”― Roddy Doyle, Paddy Clarke Ha Ha Ha
