"Drugs are not my problem. Reality is my problem, drugs are my solution."
"I used to be such a burning example, I used to be so original.
I used to care, I was being cared for.
Made sure I showed it to those that I love."
"I don’t want to care. If I care about things, it’ll just be worse, it’ll just be another thing to worry about. It’s less painful if I don’t care."
"It’s not all bad. Heightened self-consciousness, apartness, an inability to join in, physical shame and self-loathing—they are not all bad. Those devils have been my angels. Without them I would never have disappeared into language, literature, the mind, laughter and all the mad intensities that made and unmade me."
— Stephen Fry, Moab Is My Washpot
