"If you think of doing something in New York City, you can be certain that at least two thousand other people have that same thought. And of the two thousand who do, about one thousand will be standing in line waiting to do it." Sep 18, 2012 08:44AM

Colson Whitehead
“Why should anyone else have it easy. Spoken like a true New Yorker.”
Colson Whitehead, The Colossus of New York

Colson Whitehead
“New York City does not hold our former selves against us. Perhaps we can extend the same courtesy.”
Colson Whitehead, The Colossus of New York

Colson Whitehead
“The loneliness is the worst, because this knowledge is something that cannot be shared, only suffered. Just as well. Why should anyone else have it easy. Spoken like a true New Yorker.”
Colson Whitehead, The Colossus of New York

Colson Whitehead
“Improbable as it may be, the day still has a few indignities left. The day waters down indignity with frustration to make it last longer. Abomination, thy name is Subway. He cannot enter. They flood through turnstiles, hips banging rods, and will not let him enter. He must get home, but it's all he can do to get halfway in before another one charges at him. A fish out of school. Everybody knows how it works except for him. All of them from every floor are crammed into this one subway car: the makers of memos, the routers of memos, the indexers filers and shredders of memos, the always-at-their-desks and the never-around. How do they all fit. Squabbling like pigeons over stale crumbs of seats. Everyone thinks they are more deserving, everyone thinks their day has been harder than everyone else's, and everyone is correct.”
Colson Whitehead, The Colossus of New York

Colson Whitehead
“People spare a minute or two relishing other people's setbacks before their own inadequacies distract them again. This is his umpteenth pint but he has a hollow leg or some sort of emptiness in himself and doesn't feel the least bit tipsy. What they take for her air of mystery is merely a side effect of her medication.”
Colson Whitehead, The Colossus of New York
