Alafair Burke

  • Apathy is grossly undervalued and never there for me when I need it.

  • Apparently, an undocumented side effect of dope is a gross overestimation of one's own intelligence. Dopers become convinced they've hidden their stash so well a cop won't find it. They're always wrong.

  • Anyone who's had a shower and hasn't ingested illegal narcotics within a couple of days stands out on a bench in the courthouse.

  • Playing well with others isn't all it's cracked up to be.

Alafair Burke, U.S. writer, law professor, legal commentator

(1969)
