Rebel Rourke

Funny thing--if you let go of the stuff you know isn't good for you, if you dump it in the trash and say "I want to try things a different way," someone will come along and pluck it out. Arms waving, they'll roll across the street, yelling, "Hey, mister! You forgot something." And they will smirk as they say it.

The point is not to turn around but to move forward.

Anger is a thing that eats the innards. Mickey Rourke is a great actor. I hope he is not eating his own innards; if he is, then Hollywood wins. And that would be succumbing to the mediocre.
