The painting showed a hairless, oppressed creature with a head like an inverted pear, its hands clapped in horror to its ears, its mouth open in a vast, soundless scream. Twisted ripples of the creature’s torment, echoes of its cry, flooded out into the air surrounding it; the man or woman, whichever it was, had become contained by its own howl. It had covered its ears against its own sound. The creature stood on a bridge and no one else was present; the creature screamed in isolation. Cut off by - or despite - its outcry.
Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? – Philip K Dick

When you feel perpetually unmotivated, you start questioning your existence in an unhealthy way; everything becomes a pseudo intellectual question you have no interest in responding whatsoever. This whole process becomes your very skin and it does not merely affect you; it actually defines you. So, you see yourself as a shadowy figure unworthy of developing interest, unworthy of wondering about the world - profoundly unworthy in every sense and deeply absent in your very presence.
Ingmar Bergman

You can try and be someone you’re not, if that’s the river that you want to cross. You can choose the life of a bohemian, or you can choose the material world.

But all I need is somewhere to lay, somewhere to lay my hat up. I need someone to love in the middle of the day. I need someone to be, someone to drive around town. I need someone to love when the chips are down.

ok, so I have a thought. if I'm traveling 60mph and my destination is 60 miles away, and the closer I got to my destination, my speed decreases accordingly so that I would always be moving at such a speed that it would always take me an hour of traveling to arrive. 30 miles away and 30 mph, 10 miles and 10 mph, but what about feet and inches and even measurements smaller, would I never reach the exact spot? assuming I'm even capable of reaching such a precise spot. what would that be called?
