" sometimes i want to go to sleep and merge myself with the foggy world of dreams and not return to this, our real world. Sometimes I look back on my life and am surprised at the lack of kind things I have done. Sometimes I just feel like that there must be another road that can be walked - away from this person I became - either against my will or my default"
(life after god, douglas coupland)


" other thoughts: sometimes I wonder if its too late to feel the same
things that other people seem to be feeling. Sometimes I want to go to
people and say to them: 'what is it that you're feeling that I am not?
Please - that's all I want to know.' "
(Life after god)


" I think about this...I think about how hard it is - even with the
desire, and even with the will and the time - I think of how hard it is
to reach that spot inside us that remains pure, that we never manage to
touch but which we know exists - and I try to reach that spot."
(life after god)


" Life was charmed but without politics or religion. It was the life of
children of the children ot the pioneers - life after god (...)
I think there was a trade-off somewhere along the line. I think the
price we paid for our golden life was an inability to fully believe in
love, instead we gained an irony that scorched everything it touched.
And I wonder if this irony is the price we paid of the loss of god."
