Cherry On Top
“If you hate your parents, the man or the establishment, don’t show them up by getting wasted & wrapping your car around a tree. If you really want to rebel against your parents: outearn them, outlive them, & know more than they do.”
“To hate is to show you still care. Who needs that? Focus on what’s really important.”
“The average is the borderline that keeps mere men in their place. Those who step over the line are heroes by the very act. Go.”
“Why do you think the old stories tell of men who set out on great journeys to impress the gods? Because trying to impress people just isn’t worth the time & effort.”
“Life is full of choices, if you have the guts to go for it. That’s why I get immediately bored with anyone’s complaining about how boring their life is, or how bad their town is. Fucking leave & go somewhere else. Or don’t.”
