  • Everybody in this one guy's neighborhood was just like him; and he was normal, he was sane, he was bland, he was ambitious, he was boring, he was fashionable, he was imitative, he was aggressive, and he was frightened; he was "everybody"--everybody and himself--(and extremely mistrustful of any originality or freedom).--Jan Cox
