Quotes Max Brooks

„Point is, that's the image of those in uniform, and it couldn't be further from the truth.“

—  Max Brooks, World War Z
World War Z, Context: Attack. When I first heard that word, my gut reaction was, "oh shit". Does that surprise you? Of course it does. You probably expected "the brass" to be just champing at that bit, all that blood and guts, "hold 'em by the nose while we kick 'em in the ass" crap. I don't know who created the stereotype hard-charging, dim-witted, high school football coach of a general officer. Maybe it was Hollywood, or the civilian press, or maybe we did it to ourselves, by allowing those insipid, egocentric clowns- the MacArthurs and Halseys and Curtis E. LeMays- to define our image to the rest of the country. Point is, that's the image of those in uniform, and it couldn't be further from the truth.

„Who knows if this is humanity’s greatest weakness or strength? The debate continues, and probably will forever.“

—  Max Brooks, The Zombie Survival Guide
The Zombie Survival Guide, Context: Joy, sadness, confidence, anxiety, love, hatred, fear—all of these feelings and thousands more that make up the human “heart” are as useless to the living dead as the organ of the same name. Who knows if this is humanity’s greatest weakness or strength? The debate continues, and probably will forever.

„So the next time someone tries to tell you about how the true losses of this war are "our innocence" or "part of our humanity"… Whatever, bro. Tell it to the whales.“

—  Max Brooks, World War Z
World War Z, Context: You wanna know who lost World War Z? Whales. I guess they never really had a chance, not with several million hungry boat people and half the world's navies converted to fishing fleets. [... ] So the next time someone tries to tell you about how the true losses of this war are "our innocence" or "part of our humanity"... Whatever, bro. Tell it to the whales.
