Angry, and half in love with you, and tremendously sorry, I turned away.
You must stay drunk on writing so reality cannot destroy you.
I know. I’m very hard to talk to. I realize that.
J.D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye (via letargos)
For those who believe in God, most of the big questions are answered. But for those of us who can’t readily accept the God formula, the big answers don’t remain stone-written. We adjust to new conditions and discoveries. We are pliable. Love need not be a command nor faith a dictum. I am my own god. We are here to unlearn the teachings of the church, state, and our educational system. We are here to drink beer. We are here to kill war. We are here to laugh at the odds and live our lives so well that Death will tremble to take us.
I’d rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy
My imagination will get me a passport to hell one day.
― John Steinbeck, East of Eden
