Ernest Hemingway
“I love sleep. My life has the tendency to fall apart when I'm awake, you know?”
Ernest Hemingway

Kurt Vonnegut
“I want to stand as close to the edge as I can without going over. Out on the edge you see all kinds of things you can't see from the center.”
Kurt Vonnegut, Player Piano

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

Kurt Vonnegut
“Just because you can read, write and do a little math, doesn't mean that you're entitled to conquer the universe.”
Kurt Vonnegut, Hocus Pocus

Allen Ginsberg
“Poetry is not an expression of the party line. It's that time of night, lying in bed, thinking what you really think, making the private world public, that's what the poet does.”
Allen Ginsberg
