3. "Fear is the emotion that makes us blind. How many things are we afraid of? We’re afraid to turn off the lights when our hands are wet. We’re afraid to stick a knife into the toaster to get the stuck English muffin without unplugging it first. We’re afraid of what the doctor may tell us when the physical exam is over; when the airplane suddenly takes a great unearthly lurch in midair. We’re afraid that the oil may run out, that the good air will run out, the good water, the good life. When the daughter promised to be in by eleven and it’s now quarter past twelve and sleet is spatting against the window like dry sand, we sit and pretend to watch Johnny Carson and look occasionally at the mute telephone and we feel the emotion that makes us blind, the emotion that makes a stealthy ruin of the thinking process."

Romance is when two people are walking next to each other and all of a sudden they find themselves holding hands, and they don’t know how that happened."

    Wenn ich jetzt den Regen sehe, wie er in Schlierenbewegungen an meiner Fensterscheibe herunter tanzt, während ich ins Dunkle draußen starre, denke ich an uns und an unsere geteilten Worte. Wie sich deine Augen weiteten, als ich dir erklärt habe, dass wir uns doch alle nur auf selbst vorgekaute…
