Quote by Charles Bukowski in Factotum (Book quote)

That was all a man needed: hope. It was lack of hope that discouraged a man.

Quote by Charles Bukowski in Factotum (Book quote)

Nothing is worse than to finish a good shit, then reach over and find the toilet paper container empty. Even the most horrible human being on earth deserves to wipe his ass.

Quote by Charles Bukowski in Factotum (Book quote)

You have to die a few times before you can really live.

Quote by Charles Bukowski in Women (Book quote)

'That's the problem with drinking', I thought, as I poured myself a drink. If something bad happens you drink in an attempt to forget; if something good happens you drink in order to celebrate; and if nothing happens you drink to make something happen.

Quote by Charles Bukowski in Ham on Rye (Book quote)

Quote by Charles Bukowski in Factotum (Book quote)

My ambition is handicapped by laziness.

Quote by Charles Bukowski

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.

Quote by Charles Bukowski

Sometimes you climb out of bed in the morning and you think, I'm not going to make it, but you laugh inside — remembering all the times you've felt that way.

Quote by Charles Bukowski in Barfly (Book quote)

'Do you hate people?'
'I don't hate them... I just feel better when they're not around.'

Quote by Charles Bukowski

Some people never go crazy. What truly horrible lives they must lead.

Quote by Charles Bukowski

The problem with the world is that the intelligent people are full of doubts, while the stupid ones are full of confidence.
