“The thing about being a watcher is this: You are never really a part of things, especially if the person you must watch is yourself, always, just to make sure no one ever really sees you. .”
George Hodgman, Bettyville: A Memoir

“old people who are failing get the angriest with those they are most attached to, the people who make them realize they are no longer themselves.”
