I don’t consider myself a pessimist. I think of a pessimist as someone who is waiting for it to rain. And I feel soaked to the skin.
I’ve forgotten most of what I’ve read and, frankly, it never seemed very important to me or to the world.
━ Leonard Cohen, Beautiful Losers
You drink like you have to forget something.
Everything passes. Everything changes. Just do what you think you should do.
“All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.”
