“Everybody was screwed. There were no winners. There were only apparent winners. We were all chasing after a lot of nothing. Day after day. Survival seemed the only necessity. That didn’t seem enough. Not with Lady Death waiting.It drove me crazy when I thought about it.” —from Pulp, by Charles Bukowski
Don’t speak cause ur mind is amazing.
“When I lived in South Jersey or whatever, there was no time for day dreaming. And life was simpler there. You weren’t hassled, you didn’t have people trying to hold you up or goose you and stuff like that. But that’s all there was. There was no chance for extension. There was no chance to be destroyed or really be created there; you just lived. And that’s okay for some people, but I always felt something different stirring in me…And that’s why I came here; ‘cause I knew there was stuff inside of me that could, like, flower. Maybe it would really ruin me. Maybe I’d feel really shitty about it. But at least it would come out. There was no place for it to surface.” —Patti Smith
