Jerry Heller quotes (showing 1-6 of 6)

“He never liked me. So I never liked him. A long time ago I made a decision that made things a lot simpler for me: I wasn't going to like someone who didn't like me. If someone had a problem with me, I wouldn't argue with him or try to change his mind. If he demonstrated he didn't like me, I came to the conclusion that life was too short, so fuck him. This included quite a few people I ran across in the music business, as well as my own brother and the whole nation of France. I wasn't going to turn into Sally Field ("You like me! You really like me!"), but I wasn't going to waste my time with assholes, either.”

“I thought you looked like a guy who liked to enjoy hisself,” Eazy told me later. “You were the first white guy I ever really talked to who wasn’t trying to collect rent or arrest me.”
