My Favorite Quote In The World

Seriously, it’s an all-timer.

I realize I’ve been packaging up a lot of quotes and trying to pass them off as content…it’s lazy — don’t worry I’m well aware. I’m not unlike the high school teacher who puts on a movie because they are too hungover to teach. I’m ashamed of myself.

But this quote is actually great and I think its one of the most insightful quotes of all time. Every time I think of it, I smile because it’s just so…on the money.

It comes from one of my favorite authors, Chuck Palahniuk, and I believe I first found it in the back matter of Fight Club many years ago. Or maybe it was in the actual book, I can’t recall.

Anyway, here it is:

“Being tired isn’t the same as being rich. But most times it’s close enough.” — Chuck Palahniuk
