From the Book:

What can anything stand for if to compromise is to freeze circumstance? The illusion that growth is a sacred map, the way a member of the meeting will say, “Wrap it up,” the ticket line that stretches out—each points to spending life, and the few huge drops of rain dry away in seconds. I am someone else now. Try me again.
