Quote of the Year

“With my depression, there aren’t so many things that give me joy, and I should be able to celebrate the shit out of the things that do. If I hate just about everything in the world, let me love what I do love hard and unrestrainedly. And even when we’re teenagers, and allegedly immature enough to get away with enthusiasm, we start getting pressured to act cool, so we temper that enthusiasm so goddamn early. I’m done with it. No great art ever was made by dampening your love of anything. No great life was lived by pretending you didn’t give a shit.”

  1. All the cool kids keep enthusiasm rationed,
    Right down to the last explosive ounce.
    But I’d rather indulge my many passions,
    Even if my squaritude’s a little too pronounced.

    (I know I don’t need to attribute that for you, but anyone else -- Marian Call!)

  2. No great art ever was made by dampening your love of anything. No great life was lived by pretending you didn’t give a shit.

    TESTIFY, BROTHA.

  3. Like this a lot!! 🙂

  4. Truth, with beauty built right in. My favorite.

  5. I hate it when people belittle me for being “too” enthusiastic. Happens all the time, though.

  6. That’s a good quote!

    We’re all rather depressed by the passing of Lis Sladen.

    I do hope that your family in NC, and Jeff and his boys are okay, after all the tornadoes.
