Capitalism is a social cancer. It has always been a social cancer. It is the disease of society. It is the malignancy of society.

the spanish language is the fucking sexiest thing i have ever heard. when someone is just whispering spanish in your ear…wow i really cannot describe. fuck.
There’s an enormous difference between being a story writer and being a regular person. As a person, it’s your duty to stay on a straight and even keel, not to break down blubbering in the streets, not to pull rude drivers from their cars, not to swing from the branches of trees. But as a writer it’s your duty to lie and to view everything in life, however outrageous, as an interesting possibility. You may need to be ruthless or amoral in your writing to be original. Telling a story straight from real life is only being a reporter, not a creator. You have to make your story bigger, better, more magical, more meaningful than life is, no matter how special or wonderful in real life the moment may have been.
