Soft College and Hard Pavements

Picture by Robert Widdowson

I’d decided the campus was just a place to hide. There were some campus freaks who stayed on forever. The whole college scene was soft. They never told you what to expect out there in the real world. They just crammed you with theory and never told you how hard the pavements were. A college education could destroy an individual for life. Books could make you soft.  When you put them down, and really went out there, then you needed to know what they never told you.”

—Charles Bukowski
