FREAK THE MIGHTY QUOTABLE PASSAGES

“Books are like truth serum-- if you don't read, you can't figure out what's real.” 

“Television, is the opiate of the massives.”


 “Pain is just a state of mind. You can think your way out of everything, even pain.”


“Sure it will hurt. But so what? Pain is just a state of mind. You can think your way

out of anything, even pain.”

“Remembering is a great invention of the mind.”

 “You don't need a time machine if you know how to remember.”


“Good riddance to bad rubbish.”


“remembering is a great invention of the mind, and if you try hard enough you can remember anything, whether it really happened or not.”

“You ever notice how long it takes for things to happen when you know they're supposed to happen? My fake Walkman has a built-in alarm, and I set it for two in the morning and wear the headphones to bed, but before you can wake up you have to fall asleep, and I never DO fall asleep because I keep waiting for the alarm to go off.”

“Remembering is just an invention of the mind... It means that if you want to, you can remember anything, whether it happened or not... You don't need a time machine if you can remember.”

 “I never had a brain till freak came along..”

“His heart was simply too big for his body.”

“I never had a brain until Freak came along and let me borrow his for awhile, and that's the truth, the whole truth. The unvanquished truth, is how Freak would say it, and for a long time it was him who did the talking.”

 “Matter of fact, I watch tons of tube, but I also read tons of books so I can figure out what's true and what's fake, which isn't always easy. Books are like truth serum--if you don't read, you can't figure out what's real.”

 “I could tell you all the medical terminology,' She says. 'But what finally happened is his heart got to big for his body' ”


 “Will it hurt?" I ask. "Getting your parts replaced?"
Freak doesn't answer for a while and then he says in his stern, smart voice, "Sure it will hurt. But so what? Pain is just a state of mind. You can think your way out of anything, even pain."


I'm pretty worried about the whole deal, and I go, "But why do you want to be the first? Can't someone else be first? Isn't it dangerous?"
Life is dangerous," Freak says.”

 “Expel the object!" Freak shouts. "Regurgitate, you big moron!" and he gives me another thump and I cough up this yucky mess, but I'm still laughing so hard my nose is running.”
