"What difference would it make if I minded? It wouldn't change anything. Do I mind? It never occurs to me to mind. Okay, I got overemotional. But minding? What's the point of minding? What was the point of trying to find reason or meaning in any of these things? By the time I was twenty-five I already knew there wasn't any."
~ Philip Roth, Sabbath's Theater, 1995
