"There's this man in my city who comes out at night and sells old books right off the sidewalk, presumably until the city guard find him. The other week he happened to have this book, 40-years old, with a dedication from a lover to lover. I confused it for part of the Alexander trilogy, but turns out this one is actually about Socratic ideal of love.

Just when you stop believing in fate the perfect book finds you."

"If I don't finish this next week, I'll banish it to dnf.

Which would suck because this is an awesome book, but taking half a year to read it would indicate that my mental capacities are no match for it.

Which would be sad because it's wonderfully accessible. There's just SO MUCH in this book it makes my head spin. Need to do some serious note-taking cos I have a small brain."

David Foster Wallace
“The so-called ‘psychotically depressed’ person who tries to kill herself doesn’t do so out of quote ‘hopelessness’ or any abstract conviction that life’s assets and debits do not square. And surely not because death seems suddenly appealing. The person in whom Its invisible agony reaches a certain unendurable level will kill herself the same way a trapped person will eventually jump from the window of a burning high-rise. Make no mistake about people who leap from burning windows. Their terror of falling from a great height is still just as great as it would be for you or me standing speculatively at the same window just checking out the view; i.e. the fear of falling remains a constant. The variable here is the other terror, the fire’s flames: when the flames get close enough, falling to death becomes the slightly less terrible of two terrors. It’s not desiring the fall; it’s terror of the flames. And yet nobody down on the sidewalk, looking up and yelling ‘Don’t!’ and ‘Hang on!’, can understand the jump. Not really. You’d have to have personally been trapped and felt flames to really understand a terror way beyond falling.”
David Foster Wallace

"Maybe he's got one... but try offering a hand-job first so you retain some leverage.”
