I collect quotes from novels, non-fiction articles, song lyrics, poems etc. (Well, not so many poems, I’m a prose kind of guy.)
Anyway, I will periodically post some of my favorites.
“No! You’re wrong. I’m not a troublemaker. I’m a hellraiser. And there is a very large difference between the two. Troublemakers grow up to be priests and politicians and social reformers. They are always meddling in other people’s lives. Hellraisers don’t meddle. They rage and roar, and they celebrate life and mourn its shortness. Hellraisers destroy only themselves, and they do it because they love life too much to fall asleep.”
