“كل هذه الدراسة لا تعني شيئا يا براد. عليك أن تعيش هذا الأمن وأن تتنفسه وأن تنامه. بل حتى ذلك كله ليس كافيا. الأمن يجب أن يصير في ذهنك كباب من الصلب يقفل آليا حتى ولو لعبت الخمر برأسك أو هذيت وأنت تضاجع مومسا فاتنة. سأخبرك كيف أفعل أنا ذلك. هذا المكتب بالنسبة لي يعني العمل .. والخطط .. والأسرار. فما إن أخطو خارجه حتى أتناسى كل شئ تماما. ... ومن هنا كانت القاعدة رقم واحد هى: لا تقم بعمل إضافي بالبيت، ذهنيا كان أم ماديًا.” 1 likes
