Leonard Cohen
The older I get, the surer I am that I’m not running the show.
We are so lightly here. It is in love that we are made. In love we disappear.
This is a broken world, and we live with broken hearts and broken lives, but still that is no alibi for anything. On the contrary, you have to stand up and say, "Hallelujah," under those circumstances.
I don't consider myself a pessimist. I think of a pessimist as someone who is waiting for it to rain. And I feel soaked to the skin.
The last refuge of the insomniac is a sense of superiority to the sleeping world.
Poetry is just the evidence of life. If your life is burning well, poetry is just the ash.
