The one unbreakable hang-up I have is with cigarettes.  They have a bad effect on me.  They make me extremely nervous.  But I started smoking at twelve, and I've never written a word without a cigarette in my hands.

I've experienced racism - and every other -ism - from every angle:  from gays, from lesbians, from blacks, from women.  You would think that people who would have been oppressed would go, "Oh, I see what's going on here."  But they don't.

Quotes!

The gift of sympathy... is a charming faculty, but one often abused by those who are conscious of its possession, for there is something ghoulish in the avidity with they will pounce upon the misfortune of their friends so that they may exercise their dexterity.  It gushes forth like an oil-well, and the sympathetic pour out their sympathy with an abandon that is sometimes embarrassing to their victims.

     - W. Somerset Maugham
