Moods

“Books are finite, sexual encounters are finite, but the desire to read and to fuck is infinite; it surpasses our own deaths, our fears, our hopes for peace.” – Roberto Bolaño

“Rich people march on Washington every day.” – I. F. Stone

“Away from this kingdom, from this last undefiled place, I would keep our governments, our civilization, and all other spirit-forsaken & corrupt institutions.” — excerpt from ‘There Are Not Many Kingdoms Left’, The Love Poems of Kenneth Patchen

“Making the simple complicated is commonplace; making the complicated simple, awesomely simple, that’s creativity.” – Charles Mingus

“The revolution to be made in the US will require the masses to make material sacrifices rather than acquire more material things… That great transformative and humanizing experience still lies before us.”  – Grace Lee Boggs

“The price one pays for pursuing any profession, or calling, is an intimate knowledge of its ugly side.” – James Baldwin

“Our very strength as lesbians lies in the fact that we are outside of patriarchy; our existence challenges its life.”  – Charlotte Bunch

“Humankind is innocent, loving, and creative, you dig? It’s the bureaucracies that create the evil, that make Honor and Community impossible, and it’s the kids who really take it in the groin.”  – Paul Goodman

“Everywhere one seeks to produce meaning, to make the world signify, to render it visible. We are not, however, in danger of lacking meaning; quite the contrary, we are gorged with meaning and it is killing us.”  – Jean Baudrillard

‘The crisis consists precisely in the fact that the old is dying and the new cannot be born; in this interregnum a great variety of morbid symptoms appear.’  – Antonio Gramsci

I was definitely in a Shakespeare mood when I made up this blog.
