"Who has never killed an hour?  Not casually or without thought, but carefully: a premeditated murder of minutes.  The violence comes from a combination of giving up, not caring, and a resignation that getting past it is all you can hope to accomplish.  So you kill the hour.  You do not work, you do not read, you do not daydream.  If you sleep it is not because you need sleep.  And when at last it is over, there is no evidence: no weapon, no blood, and no body.  The only clue might be the shadows beneath your eyes or a terribly thin line near the corner of your mouth indicating something has been suffered, that in the privacy of your life you have lost something and the loss is too empty to share."

"Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that all was vanity; but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men - for they may act their dream with open eyes and make it possible."
