Quotes About Drop

"I never could read Foucault. I find philosophy tedious. All of my knowledge comes from reading novels and some history.

Id dropped out of high school and had to teach myself. I read Sartre without any background. I just forced myself and I learned nothing." - Author: Michael Gira
