“You’re growing up. And rain sort of remains on the branches of a tree that will someday rule the Earth. And it’s good that there is rain. It clears the month of your sorry rainbow expressions, and it clears the streets of the silent armies… so we can dance”

– Jim Carroll - The Basketball Diaries

“Reverence for Life says that the only thing we are really sure of is that we live and want to go on living. This is something that we share with everything else that lives, from elephants to blades of grass—and, of course, every human being. So we are brothers and sisters to all living things, and owe to all of them the same care and respect, that we wish for ourselves.”

– Albert Schweitzer

“I would feel trapped in this life, if I didn’t know I could commit suicide at any time.”

– Hunter S. Thompson

Every dawn
burns more than it
brightens

Every sunbeam
slits the sky
and shows me the future

but it’s too dark.

“They hung a sign up in our town
“If you live it up, you won’t live it down””

– Tom Waits - Hold On

“My problem is I always drink all my water to celebrate a mirage.”

“It no longer makes me cry and die and tear myself to see her go because everything goes away from me like that now — girls, visions, anything, just in the same way and forever and I accept lostness forever.”

– Jack Kerouac

“Geniuses can be scintillating and geniuses can be somber, but it’s that inescapable sorrowful depth that shines through—originality.”

– Jack Kerouac
