    “I wish I could say everything there is to say in one word. I hate all the things that can happen between the beginning of a sentence and the end.”

    –Leonard Cohen, seen above on the terrace of his house on the Greek island of Hydra.

    I’m a huge Cohen fan and this is a great photo. I’ve never seen this one before. Thank you theantidote &  holdentumblr.

    Out of the thousands
    who are known,
    or who want to be known
    as poets,
    maybe one or two
    are genuine
    and the rest are fakes,
    hanging around the sacred
    precincts
    trying to look like the real thing.
    Needless to say
    I am one of the fakes,
    and this is my story

    Leonard Cohen

    “I don’t consider myself a pessimist.  I think of a pessimist as someone who is waiting for it to rain.  And I feel soaked to the skin.”
