Do I hate everyone, everything as much as Holden?
Posted this (above) in 5th of November 2008, after reading Catcher in the Rye, quite obviously. I am reposting this in honor of its creator JD Salinger, who, today, has gone on recluse forever.
"Just because I'm so horribly conditioned to accept everybody else's values, and just because I like applause and people to rave about me, doesn't make it right. I'm ashamed of it. I'm sick of it. I'm sick of not having the courage to be an absolute nobody. I'm sick of myself and everybody else that wants to make some kind of a splash." - Franny, "Franny and Zooey" (JD Salinger)
