——"Ok,so they are not very good. And they know that, right?"
——"It's like that they got all the feelings. And they don't have any skill. And they don't want skill because it's interesting. What happens when your passion is bigger than the tools you have to deal with it? It creates this energy. This, this...this is rock. Isn't great?"
"I mean everyone is doing it."
——"So you just went along with it."
——"It looked fun."
——"That's just dumb. Why would you do something so stupid? Just following along?"
"You scared the hell out of me. Why did you hurt yourself like that?"
——"Why do you smoke yourself to death?"
——”Why are you fine being sad and alone?“
"I think history has been tough on men. I mean that they can't be what they were. And they can't figure out what's next."

"Of all the misconception of love, the most powerful and persuasive is the bielf that falling in love is love. Or at least one of the manifestion of love. Love is supposed to be a feeling that you feel. People say they're falling in love but they're not actually falling in love. It's a fake connection that you feel with someone. And marriage should never happen."少有人走的路

I am gregarious and interested in others and I think intelligence. All I ask is to get to konw people and to have them interested in konwing me. I doubt whether I would marry again and live that close to another individual. But I remain invisible.

“There is a growing disrespect for government. The schools, the news media, and all the institutions. This is not a message of happiness or reassurance. But it is the truth and it is a warning. It is a crisis of confidence. What we can see in the crisis in the growing doubt of the meaning of our own lives and in the loss of unity and purpose for our nation. Too many of us now tend to worship, self indulgence and consumption. But we have discovered that owning things and consuming things does not satisfy our longing for meaning. We are always believe that we are a part of great movement, of humanity itself , involved for the sesearch for freedom. We are at a turning point of our history, the path leads to fragmentation and self-interest, down that road lies a mistaken idea of freedom. It is a certain route to failure.”1975.7.15 吉米卡特 信任危机演讲
