But real adventures, I reflected, do not happen to people who remain at home: they must be sought abroad.

You read something which you thought only happened to you, and you discover that it happened 100 years ago to Dostoyevsky. This is a very great liberation for the suffering, struggling person, who always thinks that he is alone. This is why art is important. Art would not be important if life were not important, and life is important.

And just try to remember a few rules of life. Don’t say what you’re thinking, and don’t be too quick to act on what you think. Be friendly to people but don’t overdo it. Once you’ve tested out your friends and found them trustworthy, hold onto them. But don’t waste your time shaking hands with every new guy you meet. Don’t be quick to pick a fight, but once you’re in one, hold your own. Listen to many people, but talk to few. Hear everyone’s opinion, but reserve your judgment. […] And, above all, be true to yourself. Then you won’t be false to anybody else.

Just for the record, the weather today is calm and sunny, but the air is full of bullshit.

They don’t love you like I do
but I don’t know you like them.
They don’t love you like I do
they love you better - I know you best.

I have made many mistakes, in my time.
Built my share of bridges and broken hearts, I’ve told lies.
I have not always followed my own advice.
I’ve fallen flat, but Eva darling sometimes that’s just life.

I mean, if you put enough whiskey in anybody, they can make an alt-country record.
