“Join us. Play the game. It will bring you an untold number of rewards and you will finally have some direction and purpose in your lives. Take control of yourselves and those around you. Bend them to your will and all worldly pleasures will be yours...”
Martin Hopkins, Cracks in the Pavement

“Nothing is ‘wrong’ with me, Dan. What’s wrong with you? she said in the same eerily quiet voice, dark eyes fixated on Dan, as she breathed heavily.”
Martin Hopkins, Cracks in the Pavement

“The slick concrete reflected the facades of the work weary - grey, cracked and old,
but more importantly, trodden upon.”
Martin Hopkins, Cracks in the Pavement

“Some people never go crazy. What truly horrible lives they must lead.”
Charles Bukowski

“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.”
Charles Bukowski

“There's a bluebird in my heart that wants to get out
but I'm too tough for him,
I say, stay in there, I'm not going to let anybody see you.”
Charles Bukowski

“Be thankful that you have a life, and forsake your vain and presumptuous desire for a second one.”
Richard Dawkins
