“Ricostruire non è mai stato un problema per noi. Chi è rimasto ancorato all’ideale punk degli anni Settanta interpreta ancora il mondo e la vita in termini di demolizione — "distruggi il sistema" e cose del genere. Cose che andavano bene un bel po' di anni fa. Ma i tempi sono cambiati, anche per effetto di quella stessa rivoluzione, e i mezzi di rivolta che erano efficaci allora non hanno più alcun senso in un contesto diverso. Quello che la maggior parte dei ribelli non capisce è che, a forza di distruggere, non è rimasto niente. Per questo, non avendo più niente da abbattere, ci siamo ritrovati a demolire noi stessi.”
Sara Zelda Mazzini

“What you do, boy, is get the money and get as far away from here as you can. Don't even stay for your brother's funeral. It might end up being yours also. So start running and maybe one day you and me both will be thankful for what's happening. I don't know. I know your mother deserves more than a double funeral. When your mother talks to you, I hope you will keep this between us. It won't help matters if she knows I'm the one who made Jimmy pay for his ugliness.”
Donald Goines, Daddy Cool
