"New Year’s Eve always terrifies me life knows nothing of years." ~ Charles Bukowski
"The free soul is rare, but you know it when you see it - basically because you feel good, very good, when you are near or with them."

“We’re all going to die, all of us, what a circus! That alone should make us love each other but it doesn’t." ~ Charles Bukowski
"I could see the road ahead of me. I was poor and I was going to stay poor. But I didn't particularly want money. I didn't know what I wanted. Yes, I did. I wanted someplace to hide out, someplace where one didn't have to do anything. The thought of being something didn't only appall me, it sickened me. The thought of being a lawyer or a councilman or an engineer, anything like that, seemed impossible to me. To get married, to have children, to get trapped in the family structure. To go someplace to work every day and to return. It was impossible. To do things, simple things, to be part of family picnics, Christmas, the 4th of July, Labor Day, Mother's Day...was a man born just to endure those things and then die? I would rather be a dishwasher, return alone to a tiny room and drink myself to sleep." ~ Charles Bukowski
