I was once a shameless full-time dope fiend. Yeah, me Bob. The sweet mother’s son. Me and my crew robbed drugs stores. Drugstore Cowboy 1989 ***** starring Matt Dillon & Kelly Lynch & James Remar & James Le Gros & Heather Graham & William Burroughs et al, director Gus van Sant, opening remarks
After any kind of drug haul, everyone in the crew indulged. I laughed to myself as I pictured blues and Dilaudid in such great amounts on the spoon that it would literally be overflowing. Upon entering my vein, the drug would start a warm itch that would surge along until the brain consumed it in a gentle explosion. It began in the back of the neck and rose rapidly until I felt such pleasure that the whole world sympathized and took on a soft, lofty appeal. Everything was grand then. Your worst enemy – he wasn’t so bad. The ants in the grass – they were just, you know, doin’ their thing. Everything took on the rosy hue of unlimited success. You could do no wrong, and as long as it lasted, life was beautiful. ibid.
Most people don’t know how they’re gonna feel from one moment to the next. But a dope fiend has a pretty good idea. All you gotta do is look at the labels on the little bottles. ibid.
I’m a junkie. I like drugs. I like the whole lifestyle. ibid.
Nobody can talk a junkie out of using … something. Something to relieve the pressures of their everyday life. ibid.
Narcotics have been systematically scapegoated and demonized. The idea that anyone can use drugs and escape a horrible fate is anathema to these idiots. I predict in the near future right-wingers will use drug hysteria as a pretext to set up an international police apparatus. ibid. Tom
It’s this fucking Life. You never know what’s going to happen next. ibid.

If you stand alone, you’re just so much shit to those people. ibid.
You work, they don’t: that’s all you got to know about the enemy. ibid.
The union didn’t have too much it could give to the people back then. All we got in common is our misery. ibid. commentary
A new day coming: sometimes I could just about see it. But it were a dangerous living for a union man and you didn’t dare turn your back. It was hard time. It was hungry times too. The union relief was spread thin, and hope of a new day could feed your soul but leave your belly rumbling. ibid.
