Keanu quote of the day

"I didn't take my studies any further than high school. At 15 or 16, I already had my first job. But my grandfather worked for the Encyclopaedia Britannica and I had a couple of volumes in my bedroom. I started reading them out of curiosity and couldn't put them down. After that I followed my intuition and friends' recommendations: Hemingway, Faulkner, Fitzgerald, Chekhov, Tolstoy. I wish I could read in French, German and Russian."

Keanu quote of the day

I DRAW A HOT SORROW BATH

IN MY DESPAIR ROOM

WITH A MISERY CANDLE BURNING

I WASH MY HAIR WITH REGRET SHAMPOO

AFTER CLEANING MYSELF WITH PAIN SOAP

I DRY MYSELF WITH MY GORGEOUS WHITE

ONE HUNDRED PERCENT AND IT WILL NEVER CHANGE TOWEL

THEN SMOOTH ON MY I DON'T DESERVE LOTION

AND I HATE MYSELF FACE CREAM

THEN I PUT ON MY ALONE AGAIN SILK PAJAMAS

AND GO TO SLEEP

WHEN THE HUE HAS GONE BLUE

AND YOU CAN'T QUITE GRIN AND BEAR IT

LET THE WORD PICTURE REMIND YOU

IT CAN ALWAYS BE WORSE
