Nelson Rodrigues

Get in, get out. Don’t linger. Go on.

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 possibly can. You will get an enormous reward. You will have created something.

Kurt Vonnegut

Fuck Rock and Roll (I’d Rather Read a Book).

Richard Hell

If you love God, burn a church.

Jello Biafra

We need to make books cool again. If you go home with somebody and they don’t have books, don’t fuck them.

John Waters

One time I was so fucked up, I changed Rock ‘n’ Roll.

It’s hard to give a shit these days.
