Bukowski…

November 1, 2010 § Leave a comment

Been really into Bukowski again lately, it’s impossible with out an essay to explain how his writing makes me feel. He truly is one of the best writers that ever lived. Here’s a few quotes that I find particularly meaningful:

“there is a place in the heart that
will never be filled

a space

and even during the
best moments
and
the greatest times

we will know it

we will know it
more than
ever

there is a place in the heart that
will never be filled
and

we will wait
and
wait

in that space.”

“Unless it comes out of
your soul like a rocket,
unless being still would
drive you to madness…
don’t do it.
unless the sun inside you is
burning your gut,
don’t do it.

when it is truly time,
and if you have been chosen,
it will do it by itself
and it will keep on doing it
until you die or it dies in you.

there is no other way.

and there never was.”

“I wanted the whole world or nothing.”

“What matters most is how well you walk through the fire.”

“Any asshole can chase a skirt, art takes discipline.”

“How in the hell could a man enjoy being awakened at 8:30 a.m. by an alarm clock, leap out of bed, dress, force-feed, shit, piss, brush teeth and hair, and fight traffic to get to a place where essentially you made lots of money for somebody else and were asked to be grateful for the opportunity to do so? “

This is what happens when Side by Side gets down at a wedding together. Lots of craziness.

Success is Elusive…

Some wise words that I read today from Bob Lefsetz…. hope they strike you just as well:

People are complicated. Our motivations are multifarious. Success is elusive. You can try, but you’re gonna hit a lot of blind alleys. Your one big break will probably be cumulative, a result of years of hard work that pay off in that one performance that puts you over, years after you thought you should make it, after multiple late night soliloquies wherein you decided to give up.

But those who last soldier on. They know that it’s not only hard work, but a constant exploration of their act, a constant reevaluation, a constant seeking for personal satisfaction that ends up in career fulfillment. – Bob Lefsetz

  • A quote to live by…

    "If you're going to try, go all the way. Otherwise don't even start. This could mean losing girlfriends, wives, relatives, jobs. And maybe your mind. It could mean not eating for three or four days. It could mean freezing on a park bench. It could mean jail. It could mean derision. It could mean mockery, isolation. Isolation is the gift. All the others are a test of your endurance. Of how much you really want to do it. And you'll do it, despite rejection in the worst odds. And it will be better than anything else you can imagine. If you're going to try, go all the way. There is no other feeling like that. You will be alone with the gods. And the nights will flame with fire. You will ride life straight to perfect laughter. It's the only good fight there is." -Charles Bukowski
