Roger Zelazny, The Courts of Chaos

I have almost reached the regrettable conclusion that the Negro's great stumbling block in the stride toward freedom is not the White Citizen's Councilor or the Ku Klux Klanner, but the white moderate, who is more devoted to 'order' than to justice who prefers a negative peace which is the absence of tension to a positive peace which is the presence of justice who constantly says 'I agree with you in the goal you seek, but I cannot agree with your methods of direct action' who paternalistically believes he can set the timetable for someone else's freedom who lives by a mythical concept of time and who constantly advises the Negro to wait for a 'more convenient season.'

Joseph Conrad

I think some people, who have this incredible talent have it at a great expense - they are amazing artists because of their emotional turmoil, but while they are revered for what they share with the world, it never fills the void inside. As a result, they turn to other vices to try to mask the pain, but it is never enough... It is so sad that they are so lost and burn out before they are able to find peace. I am not sure that there is anything sadder than someone, who died inside before they were ever able to truly live. Re: Amy Winehouse, Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin, & Kurt Cobain

If I were to start taking care of my grooming, I would no longer be my own self ... so the hell with it ... I will continue to be unconcerned about it, which surely has the advantage that I'm left in peace by many a fop who would otherwise come to see me.

Albert Einstein
