I am not a fan of people who abuse service staff. In fact, I find it intolerable. Itís an unpardonable sin as far as Iím concerned, taking out personal business or some other kind of dissatisfaction on a waiter or busboy.

Anthony Bourdain

I'll tell you something. When you see you become part of the cycle of generations, you lose your ego in the process, because you ain't nothin' special. You're just another cipher in the generations. When you devote all your interest into another person, you lose your self-obsession, and that's when you understand what it is. You don't know (anything) without that moment. You don't want anything to harm this helpless being. That's a fantastic change. And that's when you understand what's happening. I never understood anything until my first baby looked at me. I didn't understand (anything). Now I understand.

Joe Strummer

Alan Hirsch

They said I was the greatest pitcher they ever saw... I couldnít understand why they couldnít give me no justice.
