Tao Lin Quotes

"...one had to expect very little—almost nothing—from life, Aaron knew, one had to be grateful, not always trying to seize the days like some maniac of living, but to give oneself up, be seized by the days, the months and years, be taken up in the froth of sun and moon, some pale and smoothie-ed river-cloud of life, a long, drawn-out, gray sort of enlightenment, so that when it was time to die, one did not scream swear words and knock things down, did not make a scene, but went easily with understanding and tact, and quietly, in a lightly pummeled way, having been consoled–having allowed to be consoled–by the soft, generous, worthlessness of it all, having allowed to be massaged by the daily beating of life, instead of just beaten."

"We built a perfect little cottage out of sand with the help of Farleys tin and the rusting bucket, and some lichen we peeled from rocks for window-box flowers.

Quotes About Bootleggers

"Good art can come out of thieves, bootleggers, or horse swipes. People really are afraid to find out just how much hardship and poverty they can stand. They are afraid to find out how tough they are. Nothing can destroy the good writer. The only thing that can alter the good writer is death.

So the way to treat her is to show her the back of your hand. Then maybe she will do the crawling." - Author: William Faulkner

Blue collar city worker with prestigious white collar dreams." - Author: Brandi L. Bates
