It’s a temptation for any intelligent person, and especially for perfectionists such as the ancients and ourselves, to try to murder the primitive, emotive, appetitive self.
But that is a mistake. Because it is dangerous to ignore the existence of the irrational. The more cultivated a person is, the more intelligent, the more repressed, then the more he needs some method of channeling the primitive impulses he’s worked so hard to subdue.
Otherwise those powerful old forces will mass and strengthen until they are violent enough to break free, more violent for the delay, often strong enough to sweep the will away entirely.

Humans! They lived in a world where the grass continued to be green and the sun rose every day and flowers regularly turned into fruit, and what impressed them?
Weeping statues. And wine made out of water! A mere quantum-mechanistic tunnel effect, that’s happen anyway if you were prepared to wait zillions of years.
As if the turning of sunlight into wine, by means of vines and grapes and time and enzymes, wasn’t a thousand times more impressive and happened all the time.

— Small Gods, Terry Pratchett

We mortals, men and women, devour many a disappointment between breakfast and dinner-time; keep back the tears and look a little pale about the lips, and in answer to inquiries say,
“Oh, nothing!” Pride helps; and pride is not a bad thing when it only urges us to hide our hurts— not to hurt others.

— George Eliot, “Middlemarch”

Be alone. Eat alone, take yourself on dates, sleep alone. In the midst of this you will learn about yourself.
You will grow, you will figure out what inspires you, you will curate your own dreams, your own beliefs, your own stunning clarity,
and when you do meet the person who makes your cells dance, you will be sure of it, because you are sure of yourself.

— Bianca Sparacino

I was fascinated by strangers, wanted to know what food they ate and what dishes they ate it from, what movies they watched and what music they listened to, wanted to look under their beds and in their secret drawers and night tables and inside the pockets of their coats. Often I saw interesting-looking people on the street and thought about them restlessly for days, imagining their lives, making up stories about them on the subway or the crosstown bus.

— Donna Tartt, The Goldfinch
