If I’m going to write something that moves the masses and seizes one’s soul, I have to force myself to sit and watch life long before I ever attempt to sit and write about it. For without the watching the writing doesn’t matter.
Of two sisters one is always the watcher, one the dancer.
I am a free soul, singing my heart out by myself no matter where I go and I call strangers my friends because I learn things and find ways to fit them into my own world. I hear what people say, rearrange it, take away and tear apart until it finds value in my reality and there I make it work. I find spaces in between the cracks and cuts where it feels empty and there I make it work.
Somebody is observing my writings, I know that. That's one reason why I keep reading and writing.
I think one can tell a lot about a person from the way he chooses to let the stub of his cigarette burn out...
Knowledge can be acquired by education, reading, communicating and observing, but also simply by living.
It would seem that the ant works its way tentatively, and, observing where it fails, tries another place and succeeds.
It is possible to interpret without observing, but not to observe without interpreting.
In a lifetime of observing and participating in political debate, I have seen a lot of meanness.
