Gillian Flynn Quotes.

1. "I’ve grown quite weary of the spunky heroines, brave rape victims, soul-searching fashionistas that stock so many books. I particularly mourn the lack of female villains — good, potent female villains. Not ill-tempered women who scheme about landing good men and better shoes (as if we had nothing more interesting to war over), not chilly WASP mothers (emotionally distant isn’t necessarily evil), not soapy vixens (merely bitchy doesn’t qualify either). I’m talking violent, wicked women. Scary women. Don’t tell me you don’t know some. The point is, women have spent so many years girl-powering ourselves — to the point of almost parodic encouragement — we’ve left no room to acknowledge our dark side. Dark sides are important. They should be nurtured like nasty black orchids."
- Quote by Gillian Flynn

2. "I don't know that we are actually human at this point, those of us who are like most of us, who grew up with the words to say; when a loved one dies, we know the words to say. If we want to play the stud or the smart-ass or the fool, we know the words to say. We are all working from the same dog-eared script. It's a very difficult era in which to be a person, just a real, actual person, instead of a collection of personality traits selected from an endless Automat of characters."
- Quote by Gillian Flynn

3. "No one I've loved has ever not had an agenda."
- Quote by Gillian Flynn

4. "A town so small, you tripped over people you hated every day."
- Quote by Gillian Flynn

5. "Oh, here is the rest of my life. It's finally arrived."
- Quote by Gillian Flynn

6. "Things might not be great, but things would be okay."
- Quote by Gillian Flynn

7. "You are better than any storybook, you are better than anything anyone could make up."
- Quote by Gillian Flynn

8. "That’s always been part of my goal — to show the dark side of women. Men write about bad men all the time, and they’re called antiheroes. … What I read and what I go to the movies for is not to find a best friend, not to find inspirations, not necessarily for a hero’s journey. It’s to be involved with characters that are maybe incredibly different from me, that may be incredibly bad but that feel authentic."
- Quote by Gillian Flynn

9. "He stands in the street with his arms out to me and a huge grin on his face-Baby! - and I run and I jump up into his arms he presses a stubbly cheek against mine."
- Quote by Gillian Flynn

10. "Five A.M., that's the best time, when the clicking of your heels on the sidewalk sounds illicit."
- Quote by Gillian Flynn
