Lavori

„Use your head; cut off theirs.“

—  Max Brooks, libro Manuale per sopravvivere agli zombi

Origine: The Zombie Survival Guide

„So the next time someone tries to tell you about how the true losses of this war are "our innocence" or "part of our humanity"… Whatever, bro. Tell it to the whales.“

—  Max Brooks, libro World War Z. La guerra mondiale degli zombi

World War Z
Contesto: You wanna know who lost World War Z? Whales. I guess they never really had a chance, not with several million hungry boat people and half the world's navies converted to fishing fleets. [... ] So the next time someone tries to tell you about how the true losses of this war are "our innocence" or "part of our humanity"... Whatever, bro. Tell it to the whales.

„Point is, that's the image of those in uniform, and it couldn't be further from the truth.“

—  Max Brooks, libro World War Z. La guerra mondiale degli zombi

World War Z
Contesto: Attack. When I first heard that word, my gut reaction was, "oh shit". Does that surprise you? Of course it does. You probably expected "the brass" to be just champing at that bit, all that blood and guts, "hold 'em by the nose while we kick 'em in the ass" crap. I don't know who created the stereotype hard-charging, dim-witted, high school football coach of a general officer. Maybe it was Hollywood, or the civilian press, or maybe we did it to ourselves, by allowing those insipid, egocentric clowns- the MacArthurs and Halseys and Curtis E. LeMays- to define our image to the rest of the country. Point is, that's the image of those in uniform, and it couldn't be further from the truth.

„Who knows if this is humanity’s greatest weakness or strength? The debate continues, and probably will forever.“

—  Max Brooks, libro Manuale per sopravvivere agli zombi

The Zombie Survival Guide
Contesto: Joy, sadness, confidence, anxiety, love, hatred, fear—all of these feelings and thousands more that make up the human “heart” are as useless to the living dead as the organ of the same name. Who knows if this is humanity’s greatest weakness or strength? The debate continues, and probably will forever.

„Lies are neither bad nor good. Like a fire they can either keep you warm or burn you to death, depending on how they're used.“

—  Max Brooks, libro World War Z. La guerra mondiale degli zombi

Origine: World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War

„Most people don't believe something can happen until it already has. That's not stupidity or weakness, that's just human nature.“

—  Max Brooks, libro World War Z. La guerra mondiale degli zombi

Origine: World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War

„I think that most people would rather face the light of a real enemy than the darkness of their imagined fears.“

—  Max Brooks, libro World War Z. La guerra mondiale degli zombi

Origine: World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War

„Often, a school is your best bet-perhaps not for education but certainly for protection from an undead attack.“

—  Max Brooks, libro Manuale per sopravvivere agli zombi

Origine: The Zombie Survival Guide

„The monsters that rose from the dead, they are nothing compared to the ones we carry in our hearts“

—  Max Brooks, libro World War Z. La guerra mondiale degli zombi

Origine: World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War

„There's a word for that kind of lie. Hope.“

—  Max Brooks, libro World War Z. La guerra mondiale degli zombi

Origine: World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War

„Remember; no matter how desperate the situation seems, time spent
thinking clearly is never time wasted.“

—  Max Brooks, libro Manuale per sopravvivere agli zombi

Origine: The Zombie Survival Guide

„I don't know if great times make great men, but I know they can kill them.“

—  Max Brooks, libro World War Z. La guerra mondiale degli zombi

Origine: World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War

„Imagine what could be accomplished if only the human race would shed its humanity.“

—  Max Brooks, libro World War Z. La guerra mondiale degli zombi

„Sometimes you find your path, sometimes it finds you.“
