“When someone looks at me and earnestly says, “I know what I saw,” I am fond of replying, “No, you don’t. You have a distorted and constructed memory of a distorted and constructed perception, both of which are subservient to whatever narrative your brain is operating under.

“My God, there’s absolutely nothing tenth-rate about you, and yet you’re up to your neck at this minute in tenth-rate thinking. Not only is the way you’re going at your prayer tenth-rate religion but, whether you know it or not, you’re having a tenth-rate nervous breakdown.”
