Douglas Coupland

And then I felt sad because I realized that once people are broken in certain ways, they can’t ever be fixed, and this is something nobody ever tells you when you are young and it never fails to surprise you as you grow older as you see the people in your life break one by one. You wonder when your turn is going to be, or if it’s already happened. ― Douglas Coupland, Life After God, (Scribner July 1, 2002)

One thought on “Douglas Coupland

  1. Q: Do you find that there are any similarities between horses and women?

    A: (BUKOWSKI) Yeah. You can ride ’em, but you don’t know who’s gonna be riding ’em the next race. They switch around on their jockeys. And then you can’t bet on them, they change form, and they’re unpredictable. Only thing is, horses sometimes break their legs; women break men.
