It's a mistake to confuse pity with love.
If you can talk brilliantly about a problem, it can create the consoling illusion that it has been mastered.
If it can be written, or thought, it can be filmed.
I never learned anything at all in school and didn't read a book for pleasure until I was 19 years old.
Here's to five miserable months on the wagon and the irreparable harm that it's caused me.
Any time you take a chance you better be sure the rewards are worth the risk because they can put you away just as fast for a ten dollar heist as they can for a million dollar job.
