Well, you never knew exactly how much space you occupied in people’s lives.
Most of us have a favorite, a heroic period, in our lives.
Most people think everybody feels about them much more violently than they actually do—they think other people’s opinions of them swing through great arcs of approval or disapproval.
...it could not stand still, it must go on or go back.
The best contacts are when one knows the obstacles and still wants to preserve a relation.
"I am going to a war."
“What war? Any war. I haven’t seen a paper lately but I suppose there’s a war—there always is.”
“Some one can help me.”
“Maybe so. You can help yourself most."

The strongest guard is placed at the gateway to nothing.
Either you think—or else others have to think for you and take power from you, pervert and discipline your natural tastes, civilize and sterilize you.
Trouble is when you’re sober you don’t want to see anybody, and when you’re tight nobody wants to see you.
“Did you have fun?”
“Just as much fun as anybody has running away from things."
It’s hard to go on liking people who don’t like you.
