Quick Quote 1
Anita Sharpe on Life

'America is a nation of 270 million people: 100 million of them are gangsters, another 100 million are hustlers, 50 million are lunatics, and every single one of us is secretly in show business. Isn't that fabulous? I mean, how could you fail to have a good time in a country like that? I could live literally anywhere in the world and do what I do, so, obviously, I live in America by choice -- not for any patriotic or financial reasons necessarily, but because it is so interesting there. America may be the least boring country on earth, and this despite the fact that the dullards on the religious right and the dullards on the academic left (the two faces of yankee puritanism) seem to be in competition to see who can do the most to promote compulsory homogenization and institutionalized mediocrity. It won't work. In America, the chronically wild, persistently haywire, strongly individualistic, surprisingly good-humored, flamboyant con-man hoopla is simply bigger than all of them.' -- Tom Robbins, from Wild Ducks Flying Backward
