[Also Ist Mein Sohn Ein Simpel.'In Einer Hinsicht. Aber Der Größte Teil Der Menschheit Ist So. Weil Es Sonst Zu Schwer Zu Ertragen Ist, Mensch Zu Sein. Im Gegensatz Zu Den Tieren Wissen Wir Zu Viel. Sie, Die Anderen Tiere, Wissen Gerade Genug, Um Ihren Job Zu Machen Und Zu Sterben. Um Zu Essen, Zu Schlafen, Zu Vögeln, Babys Zu Kriegen Und Zu Sterben.]

Quotes About Bolan

"We have all lived through that shriveling moment when a parent walks into a room and repeats, with sardonic disbelief, a couplet picked up from the stereo or the TV.
