Book cover for Manic: A Memoir
The memory of sustenance is a terrible thing. Far worse, I think, than actual starving. Starving just kills you. Longing can gnaw away at you forever.
Charles Bukowski
“Some people never go crazy. What truly horrible lives they must lead.”
Charles Bukowski

Sigrid Undset
“All my days I have longed equally to travel the right road and to take my own errant path.”
Sigrid Undset, Kristin Lavransdatter

Carson McCullers
“Next to music, beer was best.”
Carson McCullers, The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter

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

Charles Bukowski
“Do you hate people?”

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