"It’s all one ghetto, man… a giant gutter in outer space."
"They welcomed it. Not at first, but right there in the last instant. It’s an unmistakable relief. Because they were afraid, and now they saw for the very first time how easy it was to just let go. They saw, in that last nanosecond, they saw… what they were. You, yourself, this whole big drama, it was never more than a jerry-rig of presumption and dumb will, and you could just let go. To finally know that you didn’t have to hold on so tight. To realize that all your life, all your love, all your hate, all your memories, all your pain, it was all the same thing. It was all the same dream, a dream that you had inside a locked room, a dream about being a person."
