J. D. Salinger
I can't be running back and forth forever between grief and high delight.
I am a kind of paranoiac in reverse. I suspect people of plotting to make me happy.
It's really too bad a lot of crumby stuff is a lot of fun sometimes.
I'm sick of not having the courage to be an absolute nobody.
The mark of the immature man is that he wants to die nobly for a cause, while the mark of the mature man is that he wants to live humbly for one.
If you really want to hear about it, the first thing you'll probably want to know is where I was born, and what my lousy childhood was like, and how my parents were occupied and all before they had me, and all that David Copperfield kind of crap, but I don't feel like going into it, if you want to know the truth.
