Fiona Russell Powell, The Face, October 1985

"We can't make it. We are ready to die when we are born. We are the patsies. And I hate the intellectual freak who realises all this and condescends to it and makes himself seemingly superior because he feels he just doesn't belong and therefore is." (Charles Bukowski)

"I look inside myself and see my heart is black..." (Jagger/Richards)
