She’s been having a day and then another, going to plays, going to parties.

"Tell you what, Jack. You get old, you find out you’re ready for something but you don’t know what it is. You’re always getting prepared. You’re combing your hair, standing by the window looking out. I feel like there’s some little fussy person whisking around me all the time. That’s why I jumped in the car and drove headlong all this way."

"To break the spell," I said. "To get away from routine things. Routine things can be deadly, Vern, carried to extremes. I have a friend who says that’s why people take vacations. Not to relax or find excitement or see new places. To escape the death that exists in routine things."

Vernon Dickey, Jack Gladney

White Noise, Don DeLillo

I met a traveller from an antique land
Who said: “Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert. Near them on the sand,
Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown
And wrinkled lip and sneer of cold command
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them and the heart that fed.
And on the pedestal these words appear:
`My name is Ozymandias, King of Kings:
Look on my works, ye mighty, and despair!’
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare,
The lone and level sands stretch far away”.

—Percy Bysshe Shelley

“Without drugs, he couldn’t write; he needed more than in the past. Along with marijuana, Seconal, booze, coffee, and two packs of cigarettes a day, he began taking a tranquilizer, Miltown, and a type of amphetamine with the trade name of Benzedrine. Bennies, long used by long-haul truckers and pilots, were a favorite of various Beat Generation figures, Jack Kerouac and Allen Ginsberg most notably. The trick was to find the point at which the drugs balanced out and he could write for an hour or two.”
— J. Michael Lennon, biographer of Norman Mailer, A Double Life (2013)
