In The Words of a very smart Man


I see in us the strongest and smartest men who've ever lived. I see in us 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. 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 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.

  2. Yes Fight Club is a very deep movie. I remember reading that the author of the book actually preferred how the movie ended instead of the way the book did. Not sure if I can find the link to where he said it.
