-I teach my child to look at life in a thoroughly materialistic fashion. If he escapes and becomes the sort of person I hope he will become, it will be because he sees through the hokum that I hand out.
-I get up every morning determined to both change the world and have one hell of a good time. Sometimes this makes planning my day difficult.
-People are, if anything, more touchy about being thought silly than they are about being thought unjust.
-The time not to become a father is eighteen years before a war.
