Charles Bukowski's quotes

  • People who drink and still function say they're not alcoholics. I don't see what one has to do with the other. Whether you're an alcoholic and whether you function are two different questions.[1987]
  • Everybody calls me Hank. Nobody calls me Charles.[1987]
  • My writing it very simple. Maybe clarity is a better word.[1987]
  • I like to drink and write and have the novel happen to me and I'm as surprised as anyone else. I'll be so deep into it that sometimes Linda will open the door unexpectedly and I'll scream.[1987]
  • The way I became a barfly was, I didn't like what I saw in the 9 to 5. I didn't want to become an ordinary working person, paying off the mortgage, looking at TV, terrified. The bar was a hiding place, to get out of the mainstream.[1987]
  • I hate to go into bars anymore. I've had too much of barrooms.(...)Now I go up with my bottle and write, all alone. The company's great. Turn on the radio and type. I like looking at a novel and you don't know what you're gonna type next.[1987]
  • We're all going to die, all of us, what a circus! That alone should make us love each other, but it doesn't. We are terrorized and flattened by trivialities. We are eaten up by nothing.
  • I am my own god. We are here to unlearn the teachings of the church, state, and educational system. We are here to drink beer. We are here to kill war. We are here to laugh at the odds and live our lives so well that death will tremble to take us.
  • Death does not come when you call, even if you call him from a Shining Castle.
