May everyone live, and may everyone die, Hello, my love, and my love, goodbye.
Leonard Cohen (21 septembrie 1934 Montreal – 07 noiembrie 2016 Los Angeles)
Happy landing in Paradise, Mr. Cohen! I hope the Lord of Songs is merciful.
”To those few high school girls/who preferred my work to Dylan’s/I leave my stone ear/and my disposable Franciscan ambitions”
„I don’t really understand that process called reincarnation but if there is such a thing I’d like to come back as my daughter’s dog”
”I didn’t kill myself / when things went wrong / I didn’t turn / to drugs or teaching / I tried to sleep / but when I couldn’t sleep / I learned to write / I learned to write / what might be read / on nights like this / by one like me”
