When I came to the last line of 'Car Crash While Hitchhiking,' I read it as a pitiless statement of indifference: a refusal to warn the family of their impending collision, a refusal to help when miraculously spared, a refusal to act on the empathy hiding behind the story's language. ~ Anthony Marra
Surviving A Car Crash quotes by Anthony Marra
Our eyes met like a car crash, colliding and breaking away ~ T.J. Klune
Surviving A Car Crash quotes by T.J. Klune
The killjoys initiated automobile crash standards so rigorous that we can't buy a car that hasn't been dropped from the top of a phone pole with our whole family strapped inside. ~ P. J. O'Rourke
Surviving A Car Crash quotes by P. J. O'Rourke
The pilots I worked with in the aerospace industry were willing to put on almost anything to keep them safe in case of a crash, but regular people in cars don't want to be uncomfortable even for a minute. ~ Nils Bohlin
Surviving A Car Crash quotes by Nils Bohlin
The riot screws did not stop there, they dragged him down the corridor where ten other nameless screws repeatedly coshed him over the head and face and body. Dingus by now was totally out cold, he had received the equivalent injuries of someone who was involved in a car crash. ~ Stephen Richards
Surviving A Car Crash quotes by Stephen Richards
My dad died when I was 23. His death was sudden and shocking - the result of a car crash - and I never got to say goodbye. ~ Dani Shapiro
Surviving A Car Crash quotes by Dani Shapiro
They say that if you really want to kill yourself, no one can stop you. There are too many ways to do it. You can jump off a bridge or a building. You can hang yourself. You can crash a car or slit your wrists or swim out really far into the ocean until you drown. Sometimes I wonder why I'm not dead, if I really wanted to kill myself. ~ Albert Borris
Surviving A Car Crash quotes by Albert Borris
I once asked a car-crash victim what it had felt like to be in a smashup. She said her eeriest memory was how one second the car was her friend, working for her, its contours designed to fit her body perfectly, everything smooth and sleek and luxurious, and then a blink of an eye later it had become a jagged weapon of torture- like she was inside an iron maiden. Her friend had become her worst enemy. ~ Jon Ronson
Surviving A Car Crash quotes by Jon Ronson
Losing one's mother to a car crash at age four isn't a readily accessible idea of good luck, but I've come to accept it as the condition that was required for my luck to fall into place. ~ Allegra Huston
Surviving A Car Crash quotes by Allegra Huston
If you knew, then why did you stay with someone like that? When choosing partners, you must be more prudent. -- Junpei

That's impossible, because...that's what falling in love is all about. It's like a car crash, or an avalanche. First you fall head down with love, then it feels like something fell from the sky on you. Either way, there's nothing you can do about it. It's almost impossible to have control of yourself. -- Ei ~ Yuuri Eda
Surviving A Car Crash quotes by Yuuri Eda
After being bombarded endlessly by road-safety propaganda it was almost a relief to find myself in an actual accident. ~ J.G. Ballard
Surviving A Car Crash quotes by J.G. Ballard
My parents always taught me never to take anything for granted because it can be taken away from you like that, especially when it comes to looks. I could get into a car crash tomorrow and disfigure my face. So I have to stay grounded. ~ Lance Gross
Surviving A Car Crash quotes by Lance Gross
Do not assume tomorrow will come. Car crash, heart attack, panda mauling; no promises that you'll see the day after today. What you do get is today. You're here right now, so don't waste it. Today is always the day you have. Tomorrow is always a day away. Something-something ~ Chuck Wendig
Surviving A Car Crash quotes by Chuck Wendig
I have an underwater camera just in case I crash my car into a river, and at the last minute I see a photo opportunity of a fish that I have never seen. ~ Mitch Hedberg
Surviving A Car Crash quotes by Mitch Hedberg
I have actually programmed a fair bit in Perl, like I have C++ code published with my name on it. Other things I have tried and have no intention to do again if I can at all avoid it include smoking, getting drunk enough to puke and waste the whole next day with hang-over, breaking a leg in a violent car crash, getting mugged in New York City, or travel with Aeroflot. ~ Erik Naggum
Surviving A Car Crash quotes by Erik Naggum
A car crash harnesses elements of eroticism, aggression, desire, speed, drama, kinesthetic factors, the stylizing of motion, consumer goods, status
all these in one event. I myself see the car crash as a tremendous sexual event really: a liberation of human and machine libido (if there is such a thing). ~ J.G. Ballard
Surviving A Car Crash quotes by J.G. Ballard
Years later, when they were killed in a car crash on the Farm to Market Road, and the Nell-that-never-lived died with them, Olena, numbly rearranging the letters of her own name on the envelopes of the sympathy cards she received, discovered what the letters spelled: Olena; Alone. ~ Lorrie Moore
Surviving A Car Crash quotes by Lorrie Moore
Ramfis fled the country after Trujillo's death, lived dissolutely off his father's swag, and ended up dying in a car crash of his own devising in 1969; the other car he hit contained the Duchess of Albuquerque, Teresa Beltrán de Lis, who died instantly; Lil'Fuckface went on murdering right to the end. ~ Junot Diaz
Surviving A Car Crash quotes by Junot Diaz
He was born a patron; he didn't choose it. He didn't choose for his mother to die. He didn't choose Syd as his proxy or the car crash or the virus in Syd's blood. Everything that had ever happened had happened to him. He wasn't responsible. He wasn't the princess and he wasn't the frog. He was just a guy getting by the only way he knew how. ~ Anonymous
Surviving A Car Crash quotes by Anonymous
I want a new drug, one that won't make me sick. One that won't make me crash my car, or make my head three feet thick. ~ Huey Lewis
Surviving A Car Crash quotes by Huey Lewis
[We're making materials] so light that you can make a car that two people can lift, but so strong that it has the crash-worthiness of an SUV. ~ Regina E. Dugan
Surviving A Car Crash quotes by Regina E. Dugan
Something pretty bad's happening nearby in the space-time continuum.' the Doctor shouted over the noise. 'The TARDIS is a terrible rubbernecker - like a little old lady, she can't resist slowing down for a gawp at a car crash in the next lane. Bless.'
'This is not slowing down,' bellowed Rory.
'Good point,' agreed the Doctor. ~ James Goss
Surviving A Car Crash quotes by James Goss
Down the hall came the wife. She was glorious, burning. She didn't know yet that her husband was dead. We knew. That's what gave her such power over us. The doctor took her into a room with a desk at the end of the hall, and from under the closed door a slab of brilliance radiated as if, by some stupendous process, diamonds were being incinerated in there. What a pair of lungs! She shrieked as I imagined an eagle would shriek. It felt wonderful to be alive to hear it! I've gone looking for that feeling everywhere. ~ Denis Johnson
Surviving A Car Crash quotes by Denis Johnson
The difference between a sand trap and water hazard is the difference between a car crash and an airplane crash. You have a chance of recovering from a car crash. ~ Bobby Jones
Surviving A Car Crash quotes by Bobby Jones
I survived
A dreadful accident
In the car crash of the century
My shattered hopes
Collapsed on cold cement
But in the back of the ambulance
I'd never felt so content. ~ Owl City
Surviving A Car Crash quotes by Owl City
Nothing can really prepare you for when you get in the Formula One car. Knowing that you're driving a multimillion-dollar car, and if you crash it it's going to cost a lot of money, and they might not give you another chance, is scary. ~ Lewis Hamilton
Surviving A Car Crash quotes by Lewis Hamilton
But we have soothed ourselves into imagining sudden change as something that happens outside the normal order of things. An accident, like a car crash. Or beyond our control, like a fatal illness. We do not conceive of sudden, radical, irrational change as built into the very fabric of existence. Yet it is. ~ Michael Crichton
Surviving A Car Crash quotes by Michael Crichton
And we're going out.

Kill me.

'Got everything?' Mom asks, her voice all sing-songy. We're acting normal. A short-lived facade when I open my bag and Operation Check Contents begins.

1. Phone to call for help if we have a car crash/get mugged/drive into the path of a tornado

2. Headphones to drown out the sound of people if we get caught in a crowd

3. Bottle of water for if we break down and get stranded in the middle of nowhere

4. Another bottle of water in case that other bottle leaks or evaporates

5. Tissues for nosebleeds, sneezing, crying, and/or drooling

6. Sanitizer to kill the germs you can catch from touching anything

7. Paper bag to breathe into or throw up in

8. Band-Aids and alcohol wipes in case open wounds should occur

9. Inhaler (I grew out of asthma when I was twelve, but you can't be too careful when it comes to breathing)

10. A piece of string that serves no purpose but it's been here since for ever and I'm afraid the world will implode if I don't have it

11. A pair of nail scissors for any one of a trillion reasons, most of which conclude with me being kidnapped

12. And, finally, chewing gum to take away the sour taste I always get when the panic hits

Normal takes a nosedive into my bag, sinks beneath the copious amount of clutter, and dies a slow, painful death. ~ Louise Gornall
Surviving A Car Crash quotes by Louise Gornall
We must decide whether to act as if the universe is a cosmic car-crash, in which our actions have no significance beyond their observable effects, or an ordered and purposeful whole, in which our actions continue to echo and reverberate down all eternity. ~ Peter Hitchens
Surviving A Car Crash quotes by Peter Hitchens
Every breath is a choice. Every minute is a choice. To be or not to be. Every time you don't throw yourself down the stairs, that's a choice. Every time you don't crash your car, you re-enlist. ~ Chuck Palahniuk
Surviving A Car Crash quotes by Chuck Palahniuk
Suddenly your whole life is like a car crash, no brakes, gaining momentum, piling up behind you. Your mistakes, missed opportunities, all the time you've wasted, a twisted, rusting heap of scrap metal that can't be salvaged. Overwhelming you. Crushing you. ~ Debbie Howells
Surviving A Car Crash quotes by Debbie Howells
We were racing at circuits where there were no crash barriers in front of the pits, and fuel was lying about in churns in the pit lane. A car could easily crash into the pits at any time. It was ridiculous. ~ Jackie Stewart
Surviving A Car Crash quotes by Jackie Stewart
The ambiguous role of the car crash needs no elaboration - apart from our own deaths, the car crash is probably the most dramatic event in our lives, and in many cases the two will coincide. Aside from the fact that we generally own or are at the controls of the crashing vehicle, the car crash differs from other disasters in that it involves the most powerfully advertised commercial product of this century, an iconic entity that combines the elements of speed, power, dream and freedom within a highly stylized format that defuses any fears we may have of the inherent dangers of these violent and unstable machines. ~ J.G. Ballard
Surviving A Car Crash quotes by J.G. Ballard
