contemplating neuroses

"I honestly do not know why I feel the daft sting of imagined embarrassments. The ones that occur are more than plenty, God knows. I must not let myself think like this. I don't know why I do. Unless to visualize something infinitely worse than anything that could possibly happen, so that whatever happens may seem not so bad in comparison." -- p. 68

Jonathan Safran Foer had a line similar to this:

"I've thought myself out of happiness one million times, but never once into it."

Read "Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close."
