For reasons that remain yet unclear, I highlighted different passages from everybody else:

What doesn’t kill you
makes you an asshole.

And then (by which time, scrolling down, my attention was already waning a little):

What doesn’t kill you

Interestingly enough, I didn’t pick the same one as everyone else (as of now, 23.02 UK time, 12 07 2017):

What doesn’t kill you 
leaves you broken.

As Irving Welsh says:

She is a jealous goddess, who brooks no rival.

Art has never killed me yet.

It does keep me out of trouble though.

Make of that what you will.
