But like a batter striking out, or an athlete that just can't get the ball in the goal, the bad streak passes. Do something else for awhile. It goes away. I think it must be like living in a rainy climate. Just wait until the sun comes out again.(less)

Beat the Reaper by Josh Bazell
“I should say here that being chronically sleep-deprived is so demonstrably similar to being drunk that hospitals often feel like giant, ceaseless office Christmas parties. Except that at a Christmas party the schmuck standing next to you isn't about to fillet your pancreas with something called a “hot knife.”

Josh Bazell
“So I'm on my way to work and I stop to watch a pigeon fight a rat in the snow, and some fuckhead tries to mug me! Naturally there's
a gun. He comes up behind me and sticks it into the base of my skull. It’s cold, and it actually feels sort of good, in an acupressure
kind of way. “Take it easy, Doc,” he says.”
Josh Bazell, Beat the Reaper

Robert A. Heinlein
“In the absence of clearly-defined goals, we become strangely loyal to performing daily trivia until ultimately we become enslaved by it.”
