« All quotes from this author

I started out very quiet and I beat Mr. Turgenev. Then I trained hard and I beat Mr. de Maupassant. Iíve fought two draws with Mr. Stendhal, and I think I had an edge in the last one. But nobodyís going to get me in any ring with Mr. Tolstoy unless Iím crazy or I keep getting better.
Ernest Hemingway in The New Yorker (13 May 1950)

Everything is going to the beat ó It's the beat generation, it be-at, it's the beat to keep, it's the beat of the heart, it's being beat and down in the world and like oldtime lowdown and like in ancient civilizations the slave boatmen rowing galleys to a beat and servants spinning pottery to a beat...

Jack Kerouac

I can't beat myself
I can't beat myself
And I don't want to talk.
I'm taking the cure so I can be quiet
Whenever I want.
So leave me alone
You ought to be proud that I'm getting good marks.

Elliott Smith

Beat it, beat it,
No-one wants to be defeated,
Showin' how funky and strong is your fight,
It doesn't matter who's wrong or right.
Just beat it.

Michael Jackson
