Kurt Vonnegut Jr.
“If you want to really hurt you parents, and you don't have the nerve to be gay, the least you can do is go into the arts. I'm not kidding. The arts are not a way to make a living. They are a very human way of making life more bearable. Practicing an art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow, for heaven's sake. Sing in the shower. Dance to the radio. Tell stories. Write a poem to a friend, even a lousy poem. Do it as well as you possible can. You will get an enormous reward. You will have created something.”
Kurt Vonnegut, A Man Without a Country

Friedrich Nietzsche
“A casual stroll through the lunatic asylum shows that faith does not prove anything.”
Friedrich Nietzsche

Chuck Klosterman
“Being interesting has been replaced by being identifiable.”
Chuck Klosterman, Sex, Drugs, and Cocoa Puffs: A Low Culture Manifesto

Fernando Pessoa
“Look, there's no metaphysics on earth like chocolates.”
Fernando Pessoa, The Collected Poems Of Alvaro De Campos: 1928 1935: V. 2

Ghérasim Luca
“Since I've started living out my dreams, since I've become the contemporary of the centuries to come, I no longer know death under the annihilating guise it has maintained in today's society. Only in my moments of deepest depression do I realise that in that world of swine into which I was born I shall be forced to die, just as out in the street I'm obliged to rub shoulders with priests and cops.”
Ghérasim Luca, The Passive Vampire
