“Tune in, freak out, get beaten.” Hunter S. Thompson 

And Whitman…

“The joy of being toss’d in the brave turmoil of these times. 

Drum-taps…

Long, too long america, 

Traveling roads all even and peaceful you learn’d from yous and 

prosperity only,

But now, ah now, to learn from crisis of anguish, advancing, grappling with direst fate and recoiling not,

and now and show to the world what your children enmasse really are…”

There are no second acts in american lives.” F. Scott Fitzgerald  

The great strength of a fighting man is his pride. “Nelson Algren 

“Live it up, so you can write it down.” Hemingway 

“One doesn’t become an artist overnight. First you have to be crushed, to have your conflicting points of view annihilated. You have to be wiped out as a human being in order to be born again an individual. You have to be carbonized and mineralized in order to work upwards from the last common denominator of the self. You have to get beyond pity in order to feel from the very roots of your being.” Henry Miller
