169. rain on the roof and instant coffee

“Let us toast to animal pleasures, to escapism,
to rain on the roof and instant coffee,
to unemployment insurance and library cards,
to absinthe and good-hearted landlords,
to music and warm bodies and contraceptives…
and to the “good life”, whatever it is and wherever it happens to be.”

– Hunter S. Thompson, The Proud Highway: Saga of a Desperate Southern Gentleman

"Do you see the story? Do you see anything?... It seems to me I am trying to tell you a dream - making a vain attempt, because no relation of a dream can convey the dream sensation... No, it is impossible; it is impossible to convey the life-sensation of any given epoch of one's existence - that which makes its truth, its meaning - its subtle and penetrating essence. It is impossible. We live, as we dream - alone." Marlow in Heart of Darkness, Joseph Conrad.
