OK, legally I can't tell you how I got my hands on this... but below is the full, leaked, text of Donald Trump's first foreign speech, written by him in the toilet of Air Force One, on his way to Saudi Arabia...


I've typed it up in full beneath the photo, because his handwriting is terrible.


Enjoy,

""‘I’d like to invite you to dinner,’ he says.
She laughs. Slides her thumbs into her pockets, rocks back and forth on her heels. ‘You’re sure you’re not busy? It’s kind of the end of the world right now.’"

The Impact of Science on Society by Bertrand Russell

“You said you didn't want to get involved with me,that one of us would get hurt and how you couldn't bear it. Well that just isn't good enough..Look what happens to people just living their lives. They get hurt, it's not fair they get hurt but they do, all the time, no matter how careful they are. Somebody can just just come along and hurt them, for no stupid reason..”
Julian Gough, Juno & Juliet

“Hurt is a part of life. To be honest, I think hurt is a part of happiness, that our definition of happiness has gotten very narrow lately, very nervous, a little afraid of this brawling, fabulous, unpredictable world.”
Julian Gough, Juno & Juliet

“Love, I thought to myself abstractedly. Not 'This is love' or 'Is this love?' Not a sentence, not a certainty, not a thought with moving parts or direction. Just love, all of it, as it is. Whether it's enough or not. Wthether it's real or we're making it up. However shoddy it gets, or bent out of shape. It's still extraordinary. However foolish, however vain. However badly it ends. Love.”
Julian Gough, Juno & Juliet

“There is only one way to read, which is to browse in libraries and bookshops, picking up books that attract you, reading only those, dropping them when they bore you, skipping the parts that drag-and never, never reading anything because you feel you ought, or because it is part of a trend or a movement. Remember that the book which bores you when you are twenty or thirty will open doors for you when you are forty or fifty-and vise versa. Don’t read a book out of its right time for you. ”
Doris Lessing
