Am I scary, or what?
Just in higher education alone, more people go to college now, by enormous amounts, than went to college in the '50's and '60's.

And that's a bigger audience and much more diverse audience than it used to be.

Never write an advertisement which you wouldn't want your own family to read.
You wouldn't tell lies to your own wife. Don't tell them to mine. Do as you would be done by. If you tell lies about a product, you will be found out -- either by the Government, which will prosecute you, or by the consumer, who will punish you by not buying your product a second time. Good products can be sold by honest advertising. If you don't think the product is good, you have no business to be advertising it.

Physically pick each book up, one by one. If the book inspires you, keep it. If not, it goes out. That's the standard by which you decide.
There were a few verses that I wrote literally on the spot.
But the concept was there. It's about being in your own world musically and waking up in the morning and walking outside and being consumed by everything around you. Just being aware of the good things in art and music and life. It's also about how the world is at a boiling point, in a way.
