Frank Zappa
“Well, I'm not here to impinge on anybody else's lifestyle. If I'm in a place where I know I'm going to harm somebody's health or somebody asks me to please not smoke, I just go outside and smoke. But I do resent the way the nonsmoking mentality has been imposed on the smoking minority. Because, first of all, in a democracy, minorities do have rights. And, second, the whole pitch about smoking has gone from being a health issue to a moral issue, and when they reduce something to a moral issue, it has no place in any kind of legislation, as far as I'm concerned.”
Frank Zappa

John Cheever
“For lovers, touch is metamorphosis. All the parts of their bodies seem to change, and they seem to become something different and better.”
John Cheever

Charles Bukowski
“The trouble with these people is that their cities have never been bombed and their mothers have never been told to shut up.”
Charles Bukowski

John Cheever
“I can’t write without a reader. It’s precisely like a kiss—you can’t do it alone.”
John Cheever

“I've been homesick for countries I've never been, and longed to be where I couldn't be.”
