That's what it was to be alive. To move about in a cloud of
ignorance; to go up and down trampling on the feelings of
those about you. To spend and waste time as though you
had a million years. To be always at the mercy of one
self-centered passion, or another. Now you know-- that's
the happy existence you wanted to go back to.

("Our Town," 1938)
