There is no escape… You want to get drunk, so you have to accept the hangover. You say yes to the sunlight and pure fantasies, so you have to say yes to the filth and the nausea. Everything is within you, gold and mud, happiness and pain, the laughter of childhood and the appreciation of death. Say yes to everything, shirk nothing. Don’t try to lie to yourself… You are a bird in the storm. Let it storm! Let it drive you! ~ Herman Hesse
