— Yesterday I announced that I was going to commit public suicide. Admittedly, an act of madness. I’ll tell you what happened: I just ran out of bullshit.

— Bullshit is all the reasons we give for living. If we can’t think up reasons of our own, we have the God bullshit. Through all this pointless pain, humiliation and decay, so there better be someone somewhere
