Happiness may or may not be looking for her at the bottom of the glass. Chuck said it best: “That’s the problem with drinking…If something bad happens you drink in an attempt to forget; if something good happens you drink in order to celebrate; and if nothing happens you drink to make something happen.” #bukowski #quote #bourbon #drinking #photoaday #july #bulleit #vscocam

If something burns your soul with purpose and desire, it’s your duty to be reduced to ashes by it. Any other form of existence will be yet another dull book in the library of life.

“‘Do you hate people?’
‘I don’t hate them. I just feel better when they’re not around.’”
— Charles Bukowski, Barfly (via raspberrying)

“My dear,
Find what you love and let it kill you.
Let it drain you of your all. 
Let it cling onto your back and weigh you down into 
eventual nothingness.
Let it kill you and let it devour your remains.
For all things will kill you, both slowly and fastly, but 
it’s much better to be killed by a lover.”

- Charles Bukowski
