Leonard Cohen
“i would like to remind
the management
that the drinks are watered
and the hat-check girl
has syphilis
and the band is composed
of former ss monsters
However since it is
new year's eve
and i have lip cancer
i will place my
paper hat on my
concussion and dance”
leonard cohen

Robert A. Heinlein

robert heinlein

Harlan Ellison
“The two most common elements in the universe are Hydrogen and stupidity.”
Harlan Ellison

Margaret Atwood
“Stupidity is the same as evil if you judge by the results.”
Margaret Atwood, Surfacing

Jeanette Winterson
“There are many forms of love and affection, some people can spend their whole lives together without knowing each other's names. Naming is a difficult and time-consuming process; it concerns essences, and it means power. But on the wild nights who can call you home? Only the one who knows your name.”
Jeanette Winterson, Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit
