Chuck Palahniuk Quotes on Truth (10 Quotes)

    What's burning down is a re-creation of a period revival house patterned after a copy of a copy of a copy of a mock Tudor big manor house. It's a hundred generations removed from anything original, but the truth is aren't we all?

    Reality means you live until you die. The real truth is nobody wants reality.

    In most hospitals, paging Nurse Flamingo means a fire. Dr. Blaze means a fire. Dr. Green means a suicide. Dr. Blue means somebody stopped breathing. Nothing is straight forward anymore. In a grocery store, paging Mr. Cash is a call for an armed security guard. Paging Freight check to Women's Clothing means somebody is shoplifting in that department. Other stores page a fake woman named Sheila. Sheila to the front means somebody is shoplifting in the front of the store. Mr. Cash and Sheila and Nurse Flamingo are always bad news. It's what people say when they don't want you to hear the truth.

    You can tell people the truth, but theyll never believe you until the event. Until its too late. In the meantime, the truth will just piss them off and get you in a lot of trouble.

    I wanted to write about the moment when your addictions no longer hide the truth from you. When your whole life breaks down. That's the moment when you have to somehow choose what your life is going to be about.

    The truth is you can be orphaned again and again and again.The truth is you will be.And the secret is, this will hurt less and less each time until you cant feel a thing.
