Anyone who conceives of writing as an agreeable stroll towards a middle-class life-style will never write anything but crap.

- He Died with His Eyes Open

Greg Hildebrandt

My feeling on the current situation of the world is very simple. I am appalled by all the hatred in the world. Given our violent history I cannot understand how humans still exist on this planet. At 23 years old I worked for Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen, creating art for his TV shows and making films on world hunger. During one of his shows he created this image, Imagine if you will a long line of humanity stretching backwards. Somewhere way at the beginning of the line a slap started. The person who received the slap turned to the next person in line and slapped them. That person slapped the next person. The slap continued all the way down the line until it got to you. You took the slap and you did not pass it on. It stopped there with you. It is up to us as individuals not to pass on hate and violence and murder. Each one of us has the ability to stop the slap. It is not the responsibility of Government, politics, religion or education to stop violence and hatred in the world. The responsibility is ours, each and every one of us. If we do not do this I believe the world will end in chaos and madness and total destruction.

- The Damned Interviews

Carson McCullers

...most of us would rather love than be loved. Almost everyone wants to be the lover. And the curt truth is that, in a deep secret way, the state of being beloved is intolerable to many. The beloved fears and hates the lover, and with the best of reasons. For the lover is forever trying to strip bare his beloved. The lover craves any possible relation with the beloved, even if this experience can cause him only pain.

- Ballad of the Sad Cafe

Tina Strobos

William Blake

Sooner murder an infant in its cradle than nurse unacted desire.

No bird soars too high, if he soars with its own wings.

When man is not, nature is barren.

The eagle never wasted so much time as when he submitted to learn of the crow.

The road of excess leads to the palace of wisdom.

You never know what is enough unless you know what is more than enough.

- ''Proverbs of Hell'' from The Marriage of Heaven and Hell
