If I could wake up in a different place, at a different time, could I wake up as a different person?

It`s only after you`ve lost everything, [...] that you`re free to do anything.

Maybe self-improvement isn`t the answer, maybe self-destruction is the answer.

We are not special.
We are not crap or trash, either.
We just are.
We just are, and what happens just happens.

Page 207

You`re trapped in your lovely nest, and the things you used to own, now they own you.

If you don`t know what you want, [...] you end up with a lot you don`t.
