The Libertines Quotes:
Whatever it is that gives you that feeling inside to get out of bed, get out of London and do something. Whatever inspires you to do that - to be alive and to dream.

I've had a few nasty surprises and a few pleasant surprises - acts of random violence and acts of random goodwill. It all adds up to a complete tablet of chaos that you have to swallow - but they never told me it was going to be a suppository!

The first time I fell in love with a real person was at school when I got beaten up and this girl came and sorted me out when I was all mashed up.

The power of healing and drumming.
