All politicians should be required to drink Ayahuasca 10 times before taking office.
I go home and stay there. I wash and scrub up each day, and that's it.
One month I actually grew a moustache, just so I could say that I'd done something.
I tried growing a mustache as a young man, but it got too itchy for me. Never tried it again.
But where do you store your crumbs?
Being Irish, he had an abiding sense of tragedy, which sustained him through temporary periods of joy.
William Butler Yeats

“You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you can not fool all of the people all of the time.”
― Abraham Lincoln
Nations have their ego, just like individuals.
A friend is someone who can see the truth and pain in you even when you are fooling everyone else.
“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”
-- Joseph Goebbels
It's just a job. Grass grows, birds fly, waves pound the sand. I beat people up.

"I can understand your personal vexation with me, but what do you have against the horse I rode in on?"
Trump understands that too well!
“In the good old days this doesn’t happen because they used to treat them very, very rough. And when they protested once, you know, they would not do it again so easily."
“So Matilda’s strong young mind continued to grow, nurtured by the voices of all those authors who had sent their books out into the world like ships on the sea. These books gave Matilda a hopeful and comforting message: You are not alone.”
― Roald Dahl, Matilda
“The books transported her into new worlds and introduced her to amazing people who lived exciting lives. She went on olden-day sailing ships with Joseph Conrad. She went to Africa with Ernest Hemingway and to India with Rudyard Kipling. She travelled all over the world while sitting in her little room in an English village.”
― Roald Dahl, Matilda
“I grieved to think how brief the dream of the human intellect had been. It had committed suicide.”
― H.G. Wells, The Time Machine
Interviewer: Many people who come to your concerts here regard it as a kind of pilgrimage. Most would like to meet you. What do you feel you have to offer your fans on this kind of individual level?
Bob Dylan: In India they have men that live in the Himalayas and people make long journeys to sit at their feet. And what happens when they sit at their feet? Nothing. Nothing happens; they’re usually given a big dose of silence. Sometimes it’s better to be quiet than to make a lot of noise; because when you’re quiet you’re usually more in tune with the birds and the bees and the phantoms of life.
Don't sweat the petty things and don't pet the sweaty things.
