Quotes

"We'd have the busiest days [at Mirador], and I'd look out at the dining room and sit there and just feel empty," Morton told The Huffington Post. "I was not a terribly pleasant person. I was really rough on people and had the shortest fuse and lost my temper. I didn't like who that was. I was not happy."
"How can this be a destination city if it doesn't even have a hotel? We had to stay in Toooooksberrrry. Who ever heard of Toooooksberrrry?" he guffawed
...Murguia concerns his work more with sincerity and truth than anything else. "I come to poetry out of necessity in a wayway out of an urgent need to define who I am but also as a way to give voice to my community. To me poetry should be read out loud" he writes
..."It is second to Rome as my most favourite city in the world," he said during a Q&A on True To You in January. "When I'm in Istanbul I feel as if I could never die. My life is matched."
