It’s dark because you are trying too hard. Lightly child, lightly… Just lightly let things happen and lightly cope with them. Throw away your baggage and go forward. There are quicksands all about you trying to suck you down into fear and self-pity and despair. That’s why you must walk so lightly, on tiptoes and no luggage,
| Aldous Huxley
"The capitalist system, viewed critically from a consumer perspective, is said to alienate people. Not just from the goods that we produce and consume. but even from our own experiences, feelings and desires." (Kristofferson 116)
In person it might be a totally different experience, but you’re dealing with a flat screen people look at for like two seconds.
