If something works, you’re not trying hard enough

I should have posted this a few weeks ago. There was a widely accepted story at my secondary school that this person had carved their original name into a school desk. Some people claimed to have found it. I never did.

“People are so fucking dumb. Nobody reads anymore, nobody goes out and looks and explores the society and culture they were brought up in. People have attention spans of five seconds and as much depth as a glass of water.”

“Speak in extremes, it’ll save you time. ”

“There’s a terror in knowing what the world is about”

“I’m always amazed that people take what I say seriously. I don’t even take what I am seriously.”

“If it works, it’s out of date.”

“I’m just an individual who doesn’t feel that I need to have somebody qualify my work in any particular way. I’m working for me.”

“Once you lose that sense of wonder at being alive, you’re pretty much on the way out…”

All David Bowie (except the headline).
