    Here's a throw away quote for the thirty or so, maybe fifty, people who wanted to leave Mar a Lardo while Trump was announcing his next run at the presidency and of course, announcing lots of other things.

    "We cannot get out.
    We cannot get out.
    The drums, the drums!"

    "Go without a coat when it's cold; find out what cold is. Go hungry; keep your existence lean. Wear away the fat, get down to the lean tissue and see what it's all about. The only time you define your character is when you go without. In times of hardship, you find out what you're made of and what you're capable of. If you're never tested, you'll never define you character."
    ~ Henry Rollins

    "I hope death is like
    being carried to your bedroom
    when you were a child
    & fell asleep on the couch
    during a family party.
    I hope you can hear the laughter
    from the next room"

    “Nowadays silence is looked on as odd and most of my race has forgotten the beauty of meaning much by saying little. Now tongues work all day by themselves with no help from the mind.”

    “I celebrated Thanksgiving in an old-fashioned way. I invited everyone in my neighborhood to my house, we had an enormous feast, and then I killed them and took their land.”

    It's getting colder. When November walked away it left the door open. And December snuck in like a thief.

    "What does it mean to be a self-conscious animal?

    The idea is ludicrous, if it is not monstrous. It means to know that one is food for worms.

    This is the terror: to have emerged from nothing, to have a name, consciousness of self, deep inner feelings, an excruciating inner yearning for life and self-expression—and with all this yet to die.
    It seems like a hoax..."
    -- Ernest Becker

    “He had never felt anything like that before - yet somehow he knew that from now on he would always feel like that, always, and something caught at his throat as he realized what a strange sad adventure life might get to be, strange and sad and still much more beautiful and amazing than he could ever have imagined because it was so really, strangely sad.”
    ― Jack Kerouac
