'We're gonna need a bigger boat...' Peter Benchely's book 'Jaws'.
Great book, better than the film.
I love the quote coz you can drop it in any situation where you feel out-gunned.

"You are not a beautiful and unique snowflake. You are the same decaying organic matter as everyone else, and we are all a part of the same compost pile."
From Chuck Palahniuk's 'Fight Club,
I am a fan of cynicism and those who tell it like it is. Palahniuk is a respectably blunt writer, and within this short passage, he's essentially phrasing the words that we are unable to vocalise ourselves. It's also heaps amusing and stuff.
These are a bunch of my favourite books. Enjoy!
