"He just keeps falling and falling"

“The man falling isn’t permitted to feel or hear himself hit bottom. He just keeps falling and falling. The whole arrangement’s designed for men who, at some point or other in their lives, were looking for something their own environment can’t supply them with. Or they thought their own environment couldn’t supply them with. So they gave up looking. They gave it up before they ever really got started.”

-J.  D.  Salinger
