"Some people never go crazy. What truly horrible lives they must lead."

"Sometimes you climb out of bed in the morning and you think, I'm not going to make it, but you laugh inside - remembering all the times you've felt that way."

"We are all going to die, all of us, what a circus!  That alone should make us love each other but it doesn't.  We are terrorized and flattened by trivialities, we are eaten up by nothing."

"You have to die a few times before you can really live."

"I don't hate people.  I just feel better when they're not around."

"If you're losing your soul and you know it, then you've still got a soul left to lose."

"I was laying in bed one night and I thought, I'll just quit - to hell with it.  And another little voice inside me said, don't quite - save that tiny little ember of spark.  And never give them that spark because as long as you have that spark, you can start the greatest fire again."  

- Charles Bukowski

He who fucks nuns will later join the church."
