    Just finished Catch 22 - one of the best books I have read in a long time. No idea why I had put it off all this time.

    "I'm going to live forever - or die trying!"

    Edit - and before anyone moans - the real quote is "He had decided to live forever or die in the attempt, and his only mission each time he went up was to come down alive"

    So many great lines in that book. One of my faves:

    "The end result of experiencing terror and injury is not an increase in compassion, but a tendency toward callousness."

    (yes I had to look it up)

    Aye - its great - its books like these that make me wish I could forget it and be able to read it again.
