Fight Club

 

"We did everything right. We got good grades. We worked hard and even did extra curricular, cause someone said that might matter. Then we graduated, and it didnít. We worked shitty jobs, and realized, maybe college, thatís what we need. And then we were there, and it wasnít. We got degrees, we got in debt, we got homes, we got cars, we got matching furniture, and then, we turned around, and our houses were full, but our lives were empty. But it was too late. "

 

 

 

 

"Man, I see in fight club the strongest and smartest men who've ever lived. I see all this potential, and I see squandering. God damn it, an entire generation pumping gas, waiting tables; slaves with white collars. Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we don't need. We're the middle children of history, man. No purpose or place. We have no Great War. No Great Depression. Our Great War's a spiritual war... our Great Depression is our lives. We've all been raised on television to believe that one day we'd all be millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars. But we won't. And we're slowly learning that fact. And we're very, very pissed off. "

 

 

 

"Fuck what you know. You need to forget about what you know, that's your problem. Forget about what you think you know about life, about friendship, and especially about you and me. "

 

 

Fellas, coincidence and fate figure largely in our lives.
