“Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistance. Talent will not. There is nothing more common then unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not. Unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not. The world if full of educated derelicts. Persistence and Determination alone are Omnipotent.”

– Joe Strummer

“Life is easy to chronicle, but bewildering to practice.”

“I like to think of myself at home in the armchair, writing, smoking and occasionally wandering down the shop.”

– Stephen Fry
