„You can't do this if you're not dedicated and determined, and have a strong faith. Because it's extremely hard, especially trying to work a job and do it.“

John W. Flores (November 14, 1999) "Body of Work: Police officer pours heart, soul into building muscles", The Dallas Morning News, p. 1C.

„I do have a strong faith and always have had“

—  Alex Salmond Scottish National Party politician and former First Minister of Scotland 1954

Kontext: I do have a strong faith and always have had, I’m not a regular churchgoer now but I’m in church a lot – to do readings, to attend events and so on. I had a strong church upbringing which I think has been invaluable to me in terms of a moral compass – of some idea of what’s acceptable and what is not acceptable. I have a Presbyterian nature in that I like its ideas of individual responsibility and democracy. I’m naturally suspicious of people who wear religion heavily on their sleeves – that’s just not me and my style.

„You become a narcotics addict because you do not have strong motivations in the other direction. Junk wins by default.“

—  William S. Burroughs, kniha Junkie

Prologue
Junkie (1953)
Kontext: The questions, of course, could be asked: Why did you ever try narcotics? Why did you continue using it long enough to become an addict? You become a narcotics addict because you do not have strong motivations in the other direction. Junk wins by default. I tried it as a matter of curiosity.

Kontext: "We don't seem to be overflowing with luck." "You make your own. I put no faith in gods, Lake. Never have. If they exist, they care very little— if at all— about ordinary mortals. I put my faith in me, and do you know why? Because I have never lost!"
