The Catcher in the Rye- J.D Salinger

  • “I’m quite illiterate, but I read a lot.”
  • “It’s funny. All you have to do is say something nobody understands and they’ll do practically anything you want them to.”
  • “If you had a million years to do it in, you couldn’t rub out even half the “Fuck you” signs in the world. It’s impossible.”
  • “What really knocks me out is a book that, when you’re all done reading it, you wish the author that wrote it was a terrific friend of yours and you could call him up on the phone whenever you felt like it. That doesn’t happen much, though.”
  • “Don’t ever tell anybody anything. If you do, you start missing everybody.”
  • Among other things that you find, you’ll find that you’re not the first one who was ever confused by human behavior. Many, many men have been just as troubled. Happily some of them kept records of their troubles.
