Words to Live By

Leil Lebowitz on Leonard Cohen: "To see Cohen play was to gawk at an aging Jew telling you that life was hard and laced with sorrow but that if we love each other and fuck one another and have the mad courage to laugh even when the sun is clearly setting, we’ll be just all right."

As a ::cough:: aging Jew myself, these seem like words to live by. Loving, fucking and laughing madly in the face of sorrow and death seems a good map for the trip that is this lfetime.
