The future has many names: For the weak, it means the unattainable. For the fearful, it means the unknown. For the courageous, it means opportunity.

Victor Hugo

Punk is musical freedom. It`s saying, doing and playing what you want. [...] `Nirvana` means freedom from pain, suffering and the external world, and that`s pretty close to my definition of Punk Rock.

Kurt Vonnegut

I hope no one reading this book thinks that "The exception proves the rule" means that if you have an exception, it means the rule is true. That`s just bugnutty. I had it explained to me as "The exception tests the rule." Also not true. The exception does not test the rule - it disproves the rule.
