Quote #194

For many years I was known as a Monk. I shaved my head and wore robes and got up very early. I hated everyone and no one found me out. My reputation as a Ladies’ Man was a joke. It caused me to laugh bitterly through the ten thousand nights I spent alone.

Leonard Cohen, from the poem ‘Titles’, from The Book of Longing (damningly reviewed here)
