Fight Club quotes

No fear. No distractions. The ability to let that which does not matter truly slide.

This is your life, and it’s ending one minute at a time

Only after disaster can we be resurrected.

“If you wake up at a different time, in a different place, could you wake up as a different person?”

—      Fight Club. Dir. David Fincher

I found freedom. Losing all hope was freedom.

Tyler Durden: The things you own end up owning you.

Tyler Durden: Man, I see in fight club the strongest and smartest men who've ever lived. I see all this potential, and I see squandering. God damn it, an entire generation pumping gas, waiting tables; slaves with white collars. Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we don't need. We're the middle children of history, man. No purpose or place. We have no Great War. No Great Depression. Our Great War's a spiritual war… our Great Depression is our lives. We've all been raised on television to believe that one day we'd all be millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars. But we won't. And we're slowly learning that fact. And we're very, very pissed off.

Tyler Durden: It's only after we've lost everything that we're free to do anything.

Narrator: You met me at a very strange time in my life.

Tyler Durden: We're a generation of men raised by women. I'm wondering if another woman is really the answer we need.

Narrator: When you have insomnia, you're never really asleep… and you're never really awake.

Tyler Durden: Now, a question of etiquette – as I pass, do I give you the ass or the crotch?

Tyler Durden: You're not your job. You're not how much money you have in the bank. You're not the car you drive. You're not the contents of your wallet. You're not your fucking khakis. You're the all-singing, all-dancing crap of the world.

Tyler Durden: Welcome to Fight Club. The first rule of Fight Club is: you do not talk about Fight Club. The second rule of Fight Club is: you DO NOT talk about Fight Club! Third rule of Fight Club: someone yells "stop!", goes limp, taps out, the fight is over. Fourth rule: only two guys to a fight. Fifth rule: one fight at a time, fellas. Sixth rule: No shirts, no shoes. Seventh rule: fights will go on as long as they have to. And the eighth and final rule: if this is your first time at Fight Club, you have to fight.

Narrator: A new car built by my company leaves somewhere traveling at 60 mph. The rear differential locks up. The car crashes and burns with everyone trapped inside. Now, should we initiate a recall? Take the number of vehicles in the field, A, multiply by the probable rate of failure, B, multiply by the average out-of-court settlement, C. A times B times C equals X. If X is less than the cost of a recall, we don't do one.

Tyler Durden: Oxygen gets you high. In a catastrophic emergency, you're taking giant panicked breaths. Suddenly you become euphoric, docile. You accept your fate. It's all right here. Emergency water landing – 600 miles an hour. Blank faces, calm as Hindu cows.

Narrator: When you have insomnia, you're never really asleep… and you're never really awake.

Narrator: It's called a changeover. The movie goes on, and nobody in the audience has any idea.

Narrator: And then, something happened. I let go. Lost in oblivion. Dark and silent and complete. I found freedom. Losing all hope was freedom.

"You created me. I didn’t create some loser alter-ego to make myself feel better. Take some responsibility”

Fight Club (1999) , David Fincher

Narrator: [while brutally beating Angel Face] I felt like putting a bullet between the eyes of every Panda that wouldn't screw to save its species. I wanted to open the dump valves on oil tankers and smother all the French beaches I'd never see. I wanted to breathe smoke.
