Daniel Handler
Over the years they had developed a layer of sincerity over the irony over the sincerity. It was an irony sandwich, then, which tasted mostly like sincerity, like a cheap, bad sandwich.
Handler quotes
What a bad day it was, the clouds were low and cloudy, the rain no fun, and the dark as it hit the late afternoon thick like someone who stops by your place and just won't leave. The day was canceled, almost, on account of the rain spilling itself over everything.
Handler
Money money money money money money money money money. Let no one say it has no place in a love story. It has a particular place. It is something on the right shelf.




Handler Daniel quotes
They are all one, the mothers of us all, like the money you spent. Imagine the vanish of weight if the advice of your mother never existed. They tell us things, unless we have no mothers and either way things turn out such that nothing you've ever heard is ever any help.
Handler Daniel
This world is suchier than we are, and the best thing to do is keep moving and find your keys.
Daniel Handler quotes
Love was in the air so both of us walked through love on our way to the corner.
Daniel Handler
Standing ten feet away from Lila was sort of kickass with her nails drumming on the box with the slot in, where we put everything that we rip in half, and with her blue-eyed beauty and with the gum she was chewing and how lovely she was, in that way that makes you want to find something else lovely just so you can give it to her and see how really kickass it is to have to lovely things next to each other.
Handler Daniel quotes
It was the sort of day when people walk in the park and solve problems. "We'll simply call the taxi company, David, and request a large one, like one of those vans." Is the sort of thing you would overhear if you were overhearing in the park.
Handler
[she] gave me a puzzled frown like she thought offhand i was dead but the media's so unreliable these days.
Handler Daniel
"Instead of change, please give me gun so i can shoot you." She is soft-spoken but short and full of rage lately, like her whole life.
Daniel Handler
The world gets grimy and the love object is in stark relief from its surroundings. This is love, a pretty thing on an ugly street and why wouldn't you pick it up if it appeared in a taxi cab.




Daniel Handler quotes
"I know" Helena said and this is another example of why behave this way? Things just poured out of her mouth lately, like vomit, and sometimes it actually was.
Daniel Handler
"Oh my god!" Hillary is standing in the doorway of the bathroom of the bathroom which on one had is surprising but there's the other hand, too.
Handler quotes
"Yeah, I have a question," said the guy with the wicked eyes... "My question is, I quit. I'm going to quit."
Handler Daniel
This is love, moving to where the money is, and all the while a volcano or an ex-girlfriend might blow the whole thing to hell, as the Americans say. As everybody says.
Handler Daniel quotes
God, or somebody, what is it with terrible things? If you made this world why not a better one?
Daniel Handler
This was that day if you know what I mean.
Daniel Handler quotes
All love gets over, and we must get over it.
Daniel Handler
The rain, the rain, the rain. You can't even hear it outside the window but still it's a sad thing. Rain, the grade school teachers say, makes the trees and flowers grow, but we're not trees and flower, and so many grade school teachers are single.
Handler Daniel
It was a bad day for love.
