Charles Bukowski
“Do you hate people?

I don't hate them...I just feel better when they're not around.”
Charles Bukowski, Barfly

Charles Bukowski
“My ambition is handicapped by laziness”
Charles Bukowski, Factotum

Hermann Hesse
“We fear death, we shudder at life's instability, we grieve to see the flowers wilt again and again, and the leaves fall, and in our hearts we know that we, too, are transitory and will soon disappear. When artists create pictures and thinkers search for laws and formulate thoughts, it is in order to salvage something from the great dance of death, to make something last longer than we do.”
Hermann Hesse, Narcissus and Goldmund

Günter Grass
“An empty bus hurtles through the starry night
Perhaps the driver is singing
and happy because he sings.”
Günter Grass

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
