WORDS TO LIVE BY [#37]

 

I was recently looking through some old note books and found a bunch of random quotes that I'd written down. Above is one of them. It is from a novel called Cut My Hair, about a punk kid growing up in early 90s DC. It is one of my favourite novels and I absolutely adore that particular passage. I remember writing it down as soon as I'd read it, thinking, "That's me! I am that tiny star, at the edge of the sky, waiting for some one to pick me."

Fuck, aren't we all.

The author, Jamie S. Rich, has a blog which can be found here. He currently writes comics. Motherfucker has been on Blogger since 2002. Who knew Blogger even existed in 2002?!? Also, buy the novel right here.
