Henry Chinaski: Jan was an excellent fuck. She had a tight pussy. And she took it like it was a knife that was killing her.
: I decided to clean up the apartment. I thought I must be turning into a fag. Henry Chinaski: All I want to do is get my check and get drunk. Henry Chinaski: If you're going to try, go all the way. Otherwise don't even start. This could mean losing girlfriends, wives, relatives, jobs. And maybe your mind. It could mean not eating for three or four days. It could mean freezing on a park bench. It could mean jail. It could mean derision. It could mean mockery, isolation. Isolation is the gift. All the others are a test of your endurance. Of how much you really want to do it. And you'll do it, despite rejection in the worst odds. And it will be better than anything else you can imagine. If you're going to try, go all the way. There is no other feeling like that. You will be alone with the gods. And the nights will flame with fire. You will ride life straight to perfect laughter. It's the only good fight there is. Pickle Factory boss: Writer huh? Are you sure? Henry Chinaski: No, I'm not. I'm halfway through a novel. Pickle Factory boss: What's it about? Henry Chinaski: Everything. Pickle Factory boss: It's about... cancer? Henry Chinaski: Yes. Pickle Factory boss: How about my wife? Henry Chinaski: She's in there too. Henry Chinaski: Amazing how grimly we hold on to our misery, the energy we burn fueling our anger. Amazing how one moment, we can be snarling like a beast, then a few moments later, forgetting what or why. Not hours of this, or days, or months, or years of this... But decades. Lifetimes completely used up, given over to the pettiest rancor and hatred. Finally, there is nothing here for death to take away.
