"My Blue Tears (Previously Unissued Acoustic Demo)"

There is a crack in everything, because this is the realm of the crack, the realm of failure, the realm of death, and unless we affirm failure and death, we’re going to be very unhappy. The more we affirm death, the happier we get. The more we affirm failure, the more successful we get.

— Leonard Cohen

sadly i don’t think vol. 2
"Woman is the Boss"ever came out

We all want to dissolve. We all need that experience of forgetting who we are. I think that’s what love is—you forget who you are. Forgetting who you are is such a delicious experience and so frightening that we’re in this conflicted predicament. You want it but you really can’t support it. So I think that really what our training, what our culture, our religious institutions, our educational and cultural institutions should be about is preparing the heart for that journey outside of the cage of the ribs.

— Leonard Cohen
