Mess Quotations

The meaning of life. The wasted years of life. The poor choices of life. God answers the mess of life with one word: 'grace.'

Harlan Coben

It just seems to me that the world's kind of a mess, and the more messy it gets, the more interested I am in escapist fare. Having a good time is something that isn't about the war in Iraq or the Asian flu or the Kyoto protocol - things that are horribly depressing to consider in our real lives. I'm eager to get away from them.
Eric Stoltz
