I’d say to myself or whoever I was with, ‘It’ll look good in the biography.’ and then I’d go ahead and do whatever daft thing it was - like taking acid on the sacred mesa or doing the bungee-jump, getting the haircut, dancing with the stranger, talking to the crowd - whatever I was ‘scared’ of mostly, or fancied doing, or never dared before, I’d try it on the basis that it would make for a more interesting read one day.
Grant Morrison
…it’s a tragedy that we get to live only one life, because if I’d had two lives, I would have spent one of them with her. I would have stayed in the apartment with her, torn the blueprint from the door, held her on the bed, said “I want to rolls,” sang “Start spreading the news,” laughed “Ha ha ha!” cried “Help!” I would have spent that life among the living.
