If You Really Want To Hurt Your Parents...
"If you really want to hurt your 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 mattr 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
"Any fool can be happy. It takes a man with a real heart to make beauty out of the stuff that makes us weep." -- Clive Baker
"If you don't like it, eat me." -- Warren Zevon
