Go all the way - Charles Bukowski


If you’re going to try, go all the way.

Otherwise, don’t even start.

If you're going to try, go all the way.

This could mean losing girlfriends, wives, relatives, jobs and
maybe your mind.

It could mean not eating for three or four days.

It could mean freezing on a park bench.

It could mean jail.

It could mean derision, mockery, isolation.

Isolation is the gift.

All the others are a test of your endurance, of how much
you really want to do it.

And, you’ll do it, despite rejection and the worst odds.

And it will be better than anything else you can imagine.

If you’re going to try, go all the way.

There is no other feeling like that.

You will be alone with the gods,
and the nights will flame with fire.

DO IT. DO IT. DO IT. All the way

You will ride life straight to perfect laughter.
It’s the only good fight there is.

  2. Nooit paar jaartjes gezeten, of een mes uit iemand rug gehaald, niet kunnen kiezen aan welke hoer je nou je nacht doorbrengt. Auders 6j niet gezien. Veel geld uitgeven, maar nooit iets aan gehad. DAT GEVOEL
