"I was naturally a loner, content just to live with a woman, eat with her, sleep with her, walk down the street with her. I didn't want conversation, or to go anywhere except the racetrack or the boxing matches. I didn't understand t.v. I felt foolish paying money to go into a movie theatre and sit with other people to share their emotions. Parties sickened me. I hated the game-playing, the dirty play, the flirting, the amateur drunks, the bores."
“I don’t care if people hate my guts; I assume most of them do. The important question is whether they are in a position to do anything about it.”
"People need connections (writers, heroes, stars, leaders) to give life form. A child's sand boat facing the sun. Plastic soldiers in the miniature dirt war. Forts. Garage rocket ships.
Ceremonies, theatre, dances...to reassert Tribal needs and memories; a call to worship, uniting above all, a reversion, a longing for family and the safety magic of childhood."
