Quotes!

Today is inspirational quote day at the bivouac. Such things tend to happen during hardboiled phases when it’s easier to assemble snippets of something someone else said and be done with it:

“Everyone is influenced by everybody but you bring it down home the way you feel it.” –Thelonious Monk

“You do a commercial you’re off the artistic roll call forever.” –Bill Hicks

“If people think it sucks, then so fucking what? You’re going to keep going.” –Mike Watt

“Am I so sane that I just blew your mind?” –Cosmo Kramer

“I examine my skin searching for the pore with EXIT over it.” –Bill Knott (Click link for context)

“Just phase out, breathe in, wear sandals and pretend it’s a fine world.” --Charles Bukowski

“A great many people think of feet. And socks.” –Gertrude Stein
