“I realize that a certain school of thought
says that who we are is something we construct for ourselves. We build ourselves out of what we think we remember, what we believe to be true about our life; and the possessions we gather around us are supposedly a part of this, that we are, to some extent what we own.”

“There's something almost weightless about our world, I think, something fleeting and insubstantial that's ill at ease with any pretence of certainty.”

“Dark feelings can become a habit. And if they're strong enough, like many strong feelings, they can even be enjoyable.”
