“The future is meant for those who are willing to let go of the worst parts of the past. When you cannot take two steps without turning around to inspect your footsteps, you are getting nowhere fast.”
― Corey Taylor, quote from Seven Deadly Sins: Settling the Argument Between Born Bad and Damaged Good


“Bad things happen when good people pretend nothing is wrong.”
― Corey Taylor, quote from Seven Deadly Sins: Settling the Argument Between Born Bad and Damaged Good


“I have come to accept myself for what I am: human. I am not perfect. I am not immune to fate, but I am not automatically doomed for being alive. I feel temptations every second of every day and I am not controlled by them. I do what I want anyway, so who is to say I want anything else? When I want, I let these peculiarities run across me like dogs to their masters. When I do not, I keep them at bay with my will and my testimony. I do not cut myself off from what makes me feel; I just refuse to feel anything that cuts me off from what matters most. It is called will power. With a little practice, you can accomplish great things.”
― Corey Taylor, quote from Seven Deadly Sins: Settling the Argument Between Born Bad and Damaged Good

― Corey Taylor, quote from Seven Deadly Sins: Settling the Argument Between Born Bad and Damaged Good

“Mistakes? Well, hell, we all make mistakes. And what’s more, we are expected to learn from them. It is part of our journey. It is how we move from innocence to resounding wisdom. It is how we keep from retaining a fucking baby’s psyche well into our nineties. It is how everyone keeps from shitting themselves in public and on each other. It is our ever-learning, ever-adapting GPS for this thing called life.”
― Corey Taylor, quote from Seven Deadly Sins: Settling the Argument Between Born Bad and Damaged Good


“Bad music is a form of murder to the true art of music in general.Bad music forced on a child is abuse because it invariably forms that child´s taste in music. Bad music has raped an industry that was held up strongly by great expression for decades but now finds itself floundering, giving in to the lowest common denominator of music just to keep its panties around its waist. Bad music tortures the eardrums and kills little bits of your senses through prolonged exposure. Bad music steals money from shallow pockets, steals airtime from more deserving bands and songwriters, and steals the spotlight from undiscovered geniuses who have all but given up on a dream because of the mediocrity of popular radio. Bad music is a lie, and yet it is foisted on the public in an attempt to turn melodies and songs into hamburgers and fries. Bad music is truly a sin because you don´t have to be exceptional to make it in the music industry anymore. You just have to be good enough to stick around and be tolerated. I understand that bad music is a matter of opinion. I know that. But I am fairly confident that more people agree with me than you suspect.
Bad music is just fucking bad.”
― Corey Taylor, quote from Seven Deadly Sins: Settling the Argument Between Born Bad and Damaged Good

“We [human beings] are what happens when smart monkeys fuck.”
― Corey Taylor, quote from Seven Deadly Sins: Settling the Argument Between Born Bad and Damaged Good


“Our proximity keeps us honest. Our intentions keep us strangers.”
― Corey Taylor, quote from Seven Deadly Sins: Settling the Argument Between Born Bad and Damaged Good


“We are defined by our dignity to rise above debasement. We are certainly better people for doing so.”
― Corey Taylor, quote from Seven Deadly Sins: Settling the Argument Between Born Bad and Damaged Good


“I still harbor lingering doubts about most people. I guess I always will.”
― Corey Taylor, quote from Seven Deadly Sins: Settling the Argument Between Born Bad and Damaged Good


“It is always the nights you cannot remember that eventually become the stories you don’t forget.”
― Corey Taylor, quote from Seven Deadly Sins: Settling the Argument Between Born Bad and Damaged Good


“Sometimes you have to be more than a survivor. Sometimes you have to move on.”
― Corey Taylor, quote from Seven Deadly Sins: Settling the Argument Between Born Bad and Damaged Good


“Things can get tough out there. I am in no way saying life is easy and we should breeze through it like a fart through silk filter; we are going to take our lumps and deal with our own unique adversity. What I am saying is that in all the chaos, remember to breathe, remember to smile, and remember that the only time to panic is when there is truly no tomorrow. Fortunately for the majority of us, tomorrow will always meet us in the morning with a cup of coffee and a fresh deck of cigarettes, ready to crack it's cocoon and mature into today. So ease the grip on your moralities and be yourself. Fantastic is really just the flaws. Nobody is perfect - not you, not me, not Jesus, Buddha, Jehovah, not God. But the great thing is that you do not have to be perfect to be alive, and that is what makes life absolutely perfect.”
― Corey Taylor, quote from Seven Deadly Sins: Settling the Argument Between Born Bad and Damaged Good


“A philosopher thinks out loud to make things better for everyone else. Fanatics make themselves louder because they think they are better than everyone else.”
― Corey Taylor, quote from Seven Deadly Sins: Settling the Argument Between Born Bad and Damaged Good

About BookQuoters

BookQuoters is a community of passionate readers who enjoy sharing the most meaningful, memorable and interesting quotes from great books. As the world communicates more and more via texts, memes and sound bytes, short but profound quotes from books have become more relevant and important. For some of us a quote becomes a mantra, a goal or a philosophy by which we live. For all of us, quotes are a great way to remember a book and to carry with us the author’s best ideas.

We thoughtfully gather quotes from our favorite books, both classic and current, and choose the ones that are most thought-provoking. Each quote represents a book that is interesting, well written and has potential to enhance the reader’s life. We also accept submissions from our visitors and will select the quotes we feel are most appealing to the BookQuoters community.

Founded in 2018, BookQuoters has quickly become a large and vibrant community of people who share an affinity for books. Books are seen by some as a throwback to a previous world; conversely, gleaning the main ideas of a book via a quote or a quick summary is typical of the Information Age but is a habit disdained by some diehard readers. We feel that we have the best of both worlds at BookQuoters; we read books cover-to-cover but offer you some of the highlights. We hope you’ll join us.
