Marry your best friend. I do not say that lightly. Really, truly find the strongest, happiest friendship in the person you fall in love with. Someone who speaks highly of you. Someone you can laugh with. The kind of laughs that make your belly ache, and your nose snort. The embarrassing, earnest, healing kind of laughs. Wit is important. Life is too short not to love someone who lets you be a fool with them. Make sure they are somebody who lets you cry, too. Despair will come. Find someone that you want to be there with you through those times. Most importantly, marry the one that makes passion, love, and madness combine and course through you. A love that will never dilute - even when the waters get deep, and dark.

What’s great about this country is that America started the tradition where the richest consumers buy essentially the same thing as the poorest. You can be watching tv and see Coca-Cola, and you can know that the President drinks Coke, Liz Taylor drinks Coke, and just think, you can drink Coke too. A Coke is a Coke and no amount of money can get you a better Coke than then one the bum on the corner is drinking. All the Cokes are the same and all the Cokes are good. Liz Taylor knows it, the President knows it, the bum knows it, and you know it. - Andy Warhol
I wonder if Coca-Cola ever gave Andy Warhol any free products. Or Campbell’s soup, for that matter.
“I worry that you’ll work in an office, have children, celebrate wedding anniversaries! The world of the heterosexual is a sick and boring life!”

Some of the best dialog in a John Waters film ever, and that’s really saying something.
A lot of people throughout my adult life have asked me, “What are you so dressed up for? What’s the big occasion?” And I always say, “The occasion is life! And I’m happy to be living it!
