“I'm a bit retarded, like most Americans.”
“He’s like a hero come back from the war, a poor maimed bastard living out the reality of his dreams. Wherever he sits himself the chair collapses; whatever door he enters the room is empty: whatever he puts in his mouth leaves a bad taste. Everything is just the same as it was before; the elements are unchanged, the dream is no different than the reality. Only, between the time he went to sleep and the time he woke up, his body was stolen.”
“But it's just because the chances are all against you, just because there is so little hope, that life is sweet over here.”
If men cease to believe that they will one day become gods then they will surely become worms.
