ambiance courtesy of Lewis Black - 'if it wasn't for the horse...'
i was out a few weeks ago, and overheard someone further down the bar say 'i live in a future of my own devising.' you hear the oddest things in a bar. there's a certain sort of Zen beauty in hearing things out of context.
my favorite is still 'in thirty years, the love hasn't changed, but the tolerance has.'
i mentioned all this to my friend drew, and he said he's heard so many good quotes that he keeps a journal of them. my curiosity piqued, i asked if he'd be willing to share. herewith, his contributions, as my very first guest entry ever. whoo hoo! go, drew!"Not if beautiful is extraordinary, but perhaps beauty has always been very ordinary, and it was just that I couldn't see it." -- Will Self
