Two from Bukowski

"You've been to college, haven't you?"

"Yes, but college can never make a man intelligent. It can only educate him."


"To the accusers I say, go ahead and accuse; the praisers I say, go ahead and praise; to the woman who loves me, I say go ahead and love me; to Marina I say, go ahead and become a wonderful woman; to my car I say, go ahead and keep running so I won't have to buy another one; and to my typewriter I say, go ahead and tell me more things, more and more things, different things; go ahead, go ahead, go ahead . . ."

-- From his newest: ABSENCE OF THE HERO: Uncollected Stories and Essays Vol. 2 1946-1992, April 2010
