“Anybody can do as I do — work just as slowly as I, and better. All you have to do is rid yourself of certain tastes, and sacrifice a few pleasures.

I am not at all virtuous, but I am consistent.

And though I have great needs (which I never mention), I would rather be a wretched monitor in a school than write four lines for money.

I could have been rich; I said fuck all that, and I continue to live like a Bedouin, in my desert and my pride.

Shit, shit, shit: Such is my motto.

And I embrace you tenderly.”
