All the king’s men cannot put it back together again.Taxi Driver (1976)
A philosopher once asked, “Are we human because we gaze at the stars, or do we gaze at them because we are human?” Pointless, really… “Do the stars gaze back?” Now *that’s* a question. - Stardust (2007)
Loneliness has followed me my whole life. Everywhere. In bars, in cars. Sidewalks, stores, everywhere. There’s no escape. I’m God’s lonely man.
June 29th. I gotta get in shape now. Too much sittin’ is ruinin’ my body. Too much abuse has gone on for too long. From now on, it will be fifty push-ups each morning, fifty pull-ups. There’ll be no more pills, there’ll be no more bad food, no more destroyers of my body. From now on, it will be total organization. Every muscle must be tight.
