Books You Should Be Reading Number 24 Of A Bunch

Apathy Jack writes:

Even Cowgirls Get The Blues, by Tom Robbins

“I’ve lived most of my adult life outside the law, and never have I compromised with authority. But neither have I gone out and picked fights with authority. That’s stupid. They’re waiting for that; they invite it; it helps keep them powerful. Authority is to be ridiculed, outwitted and avoided. And it’s fairly easy to do all three. If you believe in peace, act peacefully; if you believe in love, act lovingly; if you believe every which way then act every which way, that’s perfectly valid – but don’t go out trying to sell your beliefs to the System. You end up contradicting what you profess to believe in, and you set a bum example. If you want to change the world, change yourself.”
