È una malattia. La gente ha smesso di pensare, di provare emozioni, di interessarsi alle cose; nessuno che si appassioni o creda in qualcosa che non sia la sua piccola, dannata, comoda mediocrità.
(Richard Yates)

Es una enfermedad. La gente ha dejado de pensar, ha dejado de sentir, ha dejado de preocuparse por las cosas; nadie que se apasione o crea en algo que no sea su maldita y cómoda mediocridad.
Richard Yates.

“He found it so easy and so pleasant to cry that he didn’t try to stop for a while, until he realized he was forcing his sobs a little, exaggerating their depth with unnecessary shudders. Then, ashamed of himself, he bent over and carefully set his drink on the grass, got out his handkerchief and blew his nose.
“The whole point of crying was to quit before you cornied it up. The whole point of grief itself was to cut it out while it was still honest, while it still meant something. Because the thing was so easily corrupted: let yourself go and you started embellishing your own sobs… and then what the hell did you have?”
–Richard Yates, Revolutionary Road
