Depressed?  Of course we’re all depressed.  We’ve been so quickly, violently, and irreconcilably plucked from nature, from physical labor, from kinship and village mentality, from every natural and primordial anti-depressant.  The further society “progresses,” the grander the scale of imbalance.  Just as fluoride is put in water to prevent dental caries, we’ll soon find government mandating Prozac in our water to prevent mental caries.

My meaningless office job:  they pay me for my body and mind, but my heart gets no paycheck and my soul pays the taxes.

Damaged people are dangerous. They know they can survive.

The turning point in the process of growing up is when you discover the core of strength within you that survives all hurt.

The chief reason for drinking is the desire to behave in a certain way, and to be able to blame it on alcohol.
