Douglas Coupland
“When you're young, you always feel that life hasn't yet begun—that "life" is always scheduled to begin next week, next month, next year, after the holidays—whenever.

Douglas Coupland, Life After God

“There are two things that are important in politics. The first is money and I can’t remember what the second one is.”
