"The life you live and the dreams that you dream distort and blur all in slow motion. They broke you down and now you're broken, and it's sadder than the saddest movie I ever saw but without the beauty. So I stopped watching, I stopped caring, I lost all interest and I stopped wearing these plastic smiles. I'll wash my hands clean, I'll forget that you forgot about me. And I'll live the life, the big city feeling, 'cause it's better than suburban dreaming, living off the friends that hate you."
...'Well I hate America Louis. I hate this country. It's just big ideas and stories, and people dying, and people like you. The white cracker who wrote the national anthem knew what he was doing. He set the word 'free' to a note so high nobody could reach it. That was deliberate. Nothing on Earth sounds less like freedom to me...I live in America Louis, that's hard enough, I don't have to love it. You do that. Everybody's got to love something.'
-Belize from Angels in America
