Gold is heavier than blood.
Love is stronger than gold.

but he wrote pretty good plays anyway.

Language is the food of the intellect.
I’ve eaten lots of junk food and mountains of leftovers.
More than once I’ve bitten into rotten things
and I’ve been poisoned a couple of times
on exclusive dishes.
Mostly I’ve eaten hearty meals in familiar surroundings
and on occasion I’ve had meals so delicious
that they stew in my memory.
The banquet I remember most
was a naked grape served on a pair of smiling lips.
The intellect can’t live on language alone.

A bad conscience comes in two models:
the standard, “I should do it”,
and the expensive,
“I shouldn’t have done it.

*

The media sells sensations and gossip as news
the way a prostitute sells her services as love.
