"I want to perform an unnatural act."

- Lenny Bruce

"I get a kick out of being an outsider constantly. It allows me to be creative. I don't like anything in the mainstream and they don't like me."

- Bill Hicks

"I don’t like ass kissers, flag wavers or team players. I like people who buck the system. Individualists. I often warn people: “Somewhere along the way, someone is going to tell you, ‘There is no “I” in team.’ What you should tell them is, ‘Maybe not. But there is an “I” in independence, individuality and integrity.’” Avoid teams at all cost. Keep your circle small. Never join a group that has a name. If they say, “We’re the So-and-Sos,” take a walk. And if, somehow, you must join, if it’s unavoidable, such as a union or a trade association, go ahead and join. But don’t participate; it will be your death. And if they tell you you’re not a team player, congratulate them on being observant."

-George Carlin

"The more I see, the less I know for sure."

- John Lennon

Why I set my goal to read 365 books in one year

In short, I wanted to expand my reading tastes, and try different things. Sure, I have a goal, but I'm not going to die by it. I read fast, so yes, I go through some books quicker than others, but I'm not skimming. I've DNFed I think two or three books so far this year. Hopefully I won't have to do that again.


But anyway, I'm happy about my goal, and I love reading. Some people think I'm nuts, but I'm having fun and learning things about myself as a reader (and a writer!). And isn't that the idea of reading, fun?


Anyway, enjoy.
