Irvine Welsh Quote: I'm more of a warrior than you'll ever be. I believe in the class war. I believe in the battle of the sexes. I believe in my tribe.

Quotes about Irvine Welsh: We start off with high hopes, then we bottle it. We realise that we're all going to die, without really finding out the big answers.

Basically, we live a short disappointing life; and then we die. We fill up our lives with shite, things like careers and relationships to delude ourselves that it isn't all totally pointless.
