"I’ve always been accused of being a cynic. I think cynicism is sour grapes. I think cynicism is a weakness. It’s saying everything is wrong! EVERYTHING IS WRONG! You know? This is not right! That is not right! Cynicism is the weakness that keeps one from being able to adjust to what is occurring at the moment. Yes, cynicism is definiteiy a weakness, just as optimism is. The sun is shining, the birds are singing — so smile. That’s bullshit too. The truth lies somewhere in between. What is, just is. So you’re not ready to handle it…too bad."

Charles Bukowski (on cynicism), “Interview Magazine”

HAPPY BIRTHDAY CHARLES BUKOWSKI !
