What did I give up on today?
I am so deeply entrenched into a state of ennui that I couldn’t really tell you!
“That’s extremely important to understand. He had given up. Because he’d given up, the surface of life was comfortable for him. He worked reasonably hard, was easy to get along with and, except for an occasional glimpse of inner emptiness shown in some short stories he wrote at the time, his days passed quite usually.”
~ Robert M. Pirsig, Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance: An Inquiry Into Values
