"It's hard to be religious when certain people are never incinerated by bolts of lightning.”
Introduction
"I'm going to let you in on a little secret. Every day, once a day, give yourself a present. Don't plan it. Don't wait for it. Just let it happen. It could be a new shirt at the men's store, a catnap in your office chair, or two cups of good, hot black coffee. "
 - Special Agent Cooper
