◆ I'd watched too many schoolmates graduate into mental institutions, into group homes and jails, and I knew that locking people up was paranormal - against normal, not beside it. Locks didn't cure; they strangled.

◆ To Cassidy, the panopticon wasn't a metaphor. It was the greatest failing on everything she was, a prison she had built for herself out of an inability to appear anything less than perfect. And so she ghosted on, in relentless pursuit of escape, not from society, but from herself. She would always be confined by what everyone expected of her because she was too afraid and too unwilling to correct our imperfect imaginings.
- Robyn Schneider99
◆ oh shit it's shit
- Stephen King99
◆ The things people say of a man do not alter a man. He is what he is. Public opinion is of no value whatsoever. Even if people employ actual violence, they are not to be violent in turn. That would be to fall to the same low level. After all, even in prison, a man can be quite free. His soul can be free. His personality can be untroubled. He can be at peace. And, above all things, they are not to interfere with other people or judge them in any way. Personality is a very mysterious thing. A man cannot always be estimated by what he does. He may keep the law, and yet be worthless. He may break the law, and yet be fine. He may be bad, without ever doing anything bad. He may commit a sin against society, and yet realise through that sin his true perfection.
- Oscar Wilde99
◆ The world is a prison in which solitary confinement is preferable.

- Daniil Kharms99
◆ The dogs brought it all back to, you know, to the human side.

◆ If I spent ten years in prison, I'd probably come to value the small things in life. Things like good food, a comfy bed, and a toothbrush sharpened into a shank.
- Jarod Kintz99
◆ We are all so guilty at the way we have allowed the world around us to become more ugly and tasteless every year that we surrender to terror and steep ourselves in it.

- Robert J Gagnon99
◆ My definition of dictionary can't be found in the dictionary. Dictionary—A linguistic prison, confining words to well-defined cells, with little chance of parole.
- Jarod Kintz99
◆ The best thing—in Shadow's opinion, perhaps the only good thing—about being in prison was a feeling of relief. The feeling that he'd plunged as low as he could plunge and he'd hit bottom. He didn't worry that the man was going to get him, because the man had got him. He was no longer scared of what tomorrow might bring, because yesterday had brought it.
- Neil Gaiman99
