I don’t want a future, I want a present. To me this appears of greater value. You have a future only when you have no present, and when you have a present, you forget to even think about the future.

Ann was getting a little chummy. When people get too chummy with me, I like to call them by the wrong name to let them know I don’t really care about them.

it was true that i didn’t have much ambition, but there ought to be a place for people without ambition, i mean a better place than the one usually reserved. how in the hell could a man enjoy being awakened at 6:30 a.m. by an alarm clock, leap out of bed, dress, force-feed, shit, piss, brush teeth and hair, and fight traffic to get to a place where essentially you made lots of money for somebody else and were asked to be grateful for the opportunity to do so?
