The saddest people

“And then sometimes I think the people to feel saddest for are people who once knew what profoundness was, but who lost or became numb to the sensation of wonder–people who closed the doors that leads us into the secret world–or who had the doors closed for them by time and neglect and decisions made in times of weakness.”

— Douglas Coupland, from Life After God (Simon & Schuster, 2002)
