Notes from a Secret Journal
Edward Abbey on:
Government-"Terrorism: deadly violence against humans and other living things, usually conducted by a government against its own people."
Sex-"How to Avoid Pleurisy: Never make love to a girl named Candy on the tailgate of a half-ton Ford pickup during a chill rain in April out of Grandview Point in San Juan County, Utah."
New York City-"New Yorkers like to boast that if you can survive in New York, you can survive anywhere. But if you can survive anywhere, why live in New York?"
Literature-"Henry James. Our finest lady novelist."
