Brad Pitt (Tyler Durden)'s Fight Club Quotes
You know why they put oxygen masks on planes? Oxygen gets you high. In a catastrophic emergency, you take giant panic breaths. Suddenly you become euphoric, docile. You accept your fate.
We’re consumers. We are by-products of a lifestyle obsession. Murder, crime, poverty, these things don’t concern me. What concerns me are celebrity magazines, television with 500 channels, some guy’s name on my underwear, Rogaine. Viagra, Olestra.
I say never be complete. I say stop being perfect. I say let’s evolve. Let the chips fall where they may.
I look around, I look around, I see a lot of new faces. Which means a lot of people have been breaking the first two rules of Fight Club.
I see in Fight Club the strongest and smartest men who’ve ever lived. I see all this potential. Goddamn 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. No purpose or place. We have no Great War. No Great Depression. Our great war is a spiritual war. Our great depression is our lives.
We’ve all been raised on television to believe that one day we’d be millionaires and movie gods and rock stars. But we won’t. We’re slowly learning that fact. And we’re very, very pissed off.

Edward Norton's Fight Club Quotes
That old thing, how you always hurt the one you love. Well, it works both ways. We have front-row seats for this theater of mass destruction. The Demolitions Committee of Project Mayhem wrapped the foundations of 12 buildings with explosives. In two minutes, primary charges will blow base charges and a few blocks will be reduced to smouldering rubble. I know this because Tyler knows this.
With insomnia, nothing’s real. Everything’s far away. Everything’s a copy of a copy of a copy.
Tyler, you are by far the most interesting single-serving friend I have ever met. Everything on a plane is single-serving.
You can swallow a pint of blood before you get sick. It was right in everyone’s face. Tyler and I just made it visible. It was on the tip of everyone’s tongue. Tyler and I just gave it a name.
You weren’t alive anywhere like you were there. But Fight Club only exists in the hours between when Fight Club starts and ends. Even if I could tell someone they had a good fight, I wouldn’t be talking to the same man.
Who you were in Fight Club is not who you were outside of it. A guy came to Fight Club for the first time. His ass was a wad of cookie dough. After a few weeks, he was carved out of wood.

Imagine your pain as a white ball of healing light. It moves over your body, healing you. Now keep this going. Remember to breathe and step forward through the back door of the room. Where does it lead? To your cave. Step forward into your cave. You’re going deeper into your cave. And you’re going to find your power animal. -Unknown
The first rule of Project Mayhem is you do not ask questions. -Unknown
