"The whole world and every human being in it is everybody's business."
(all quotes by) William Saroyan
"Remember that every man is a variation of yourself."
"I am deeply opposed to violence in all its forms,
and yet I myself am violent in spirit, in my quarrel with the unbeatable:
myself, my demon, God, the human race, the world, time, pain, disorder, disgrace and death."
“Try as much as possible to be wholly alive, with all your might, and when you laugh, laugh like hell and when you get angry, get good and angry. Try to be alive. You will be dead soon enough."
"I have made a fiasco of my life, but I have had the right material to work with."
"I do not know what makes a writer, but it probably isn't happiness."
"The purpose of my life is to put off dying as long as possible."
