Bright Lights Quotes.

1. "I yearn to be a woman of more depth, but I'm not so fond of the path I'd need to follow to get there."

2. "Really? If I could hate my trainer? That would be ideal. I'd prefer to despise this person with the fire of ten thousand suns.

A bus that I am driving."

4. "The second prong in my revised Trinity is IKEA, the Swedish home store monolith. If you're unfamiliar, they carry every single thing you could possibly ever need to fill your home and garden at low, low prices, but in obscure Swedish sizes so those items won't coordinate with anything else you own, like, say, if you want to put a regular Target lamp shade on your IKEA lamp. Fletch thinks it's Sweden's master plan to make Americans so busy trying to construct furniture with Allen wrenches that we don't notice they've invaded us. (Personally, I think it's payback; the Swedes are pissed that we aren't buying ABBA albums anymore.)"

- Jay McInerney, Bright Lights

10. "Something changed. Somewhere along the line you stopped accelerating."
