Favorite 4th Of July Quotes

1. "I could see the road ahead of me. I was poor and I was going to stay poor. But I didn't particularly want money. I didn't know what I wanted. Yes, I did. I wanted someplace to hide out, someplace where one didn't have to do anything. The thought of being something didn't only appall me, it sickened me. The thought of being a lawyer or a councilman or an engineer, anything like that, seemed impossible to me. To get married, to have children, to get trapped in the family structure. To go someplace to work every day and to return. It was impossible. To do things, simple things, to be part of family picnics, Christmas, the 4th of July, Labor Day, Mother's Day . . . was a man born just to endure those things and then die? I would rather be a dishwasher, return alone to a tiny room and drink myself to sleep."
Author: Charles Bukowski

6. "Nostalgia is, by its very nature, bittersweet, the happiest memories laced with melancholy. It's that combination, that opposition of forces, that makes it so compelling. People, places, events, times: we miss them, and there's a pleasure in the missing and a sadness in the love.The feeling is most acute, sometimes cripplingly so, when we find ourselves longing for the moment we're in, the people we're actually with.That nameless feeling, that sense of excruciating beauty, of pained happiness, is at the core of "4th of July, Asbury Park (Sandy)."

They want to hold a seance and go dressed as bunnies.""What kind of bunnies?" he asked suspiciously."Playboy, I think. Whatever that means.""That sounds about right." Xavier laughed. "But don't let them talk you into anything you don't feel comfortable with.""They're my friends.""So what?" He shrugged. "If your friends walked off a cliff, would you do it too?""Why would they walk off a cliff?" I asked in alarm. "Is someone having problems at home?"Xavier laughed. "It's just an expression.""It's silly," I told him. "Do you think I should go as an angel? Like in the film version of Romeo and Juliet?""There would be a certain irony in that," Xavier said, smirking. "An angel posing as a human posing as an angel.I like it."
