melancholy, waste, evil, and hope

``Every man has inside himself a parasitic being who is acting not at all to his advantage`` - WSB

``Happiness is a byproduct of function, purpose, and conflict; those who seek happiness for itself seek victory without war.`` - WSB

It`s possible to circumvent morality. It`s not altogether evil, but it tends to have bad results for most people, myself included. I can see my failings as an easy microcosm for the world that is looting the future. Not that it`s an excuse, to abstain from embodying the change I want to see in the world.

`Perhaps all pleasure is only relief.``

I`ll simply let William Burroughs speak for most of this entry. The gentleman junkie. These quotes all sound so pertinent to me right now. Like this one:

``The cat does not offer services. The cat offers itself. Of course he wants care and shelter. You don't buy love for nothing. ``

``There couldn't be a society of people who didn't dream. They'd be dead in two weeks. ``

Oh, and this one just takes the cake... to the bakery, to see the other cakes:
``Your mind will answer most questions if you learn to relax and wait for the answer. ``
