And it could be a terrible road. It could be a road of circumcising your daughter’s clitoris, because that’s a fucking tradition. I mean these fucking crazy bitches in Africa that cut holes in their lip and stretch them out to put plates on. Why is that? Because they got on a fucking road, they’re stuck with that road, regardless of rational thinking. They didn’t use rational thinking at all.

It’s a fucking golden rule, and there is a reason for it and that reason is that, we’re connected in some strange way that we don’t totally understand. Unless you are good to other people around you, unless you’re kind and friendly, and warm and loving you’re not going to fucking enjoy this life. You’re just not.

We talk to dudes, especially of talented dudes and they don’t follow up with what they are going to do, you know…
