But he knew he was immoderate -- worse than that, temporarily deranged. ['Herzog']

иногда, стереть хочется всю свою жизнь, час за часом, радость за радостью, поступок за поступком. "извините, не получилось".

в Герцоге все написано -- It was enough to make a man pray to God to remove this great, bone-breaking burden of selfhood and self-development, give himself, a failure, back to the species for a primitive cure. к кольчецам спущусь и усоногим.

But in the morning she would have liked him to disappear. And he was not used to this; he was used to being a favourite.

He fought the insidious blight of nostalgia in New York -- softening, heart-rotting emotions, black spots, sweet for one moment but leaving a dangerous acid residue.

Yes, he was capable of killing her. And yet, while filled with horrible rage, he was able also to shave and dress, to be the citizen on the town for an evening of pleasure, groomed, scented, and his face sweetened for kisses.

He wondered at times whether he didn't belong to a class of people secretly convinced they had an arrangement with fate; in return for docility or ingenuous good will they were to be shielded from the worst brutalities of life.

Gave him strength to carry a heavy-buttocked woman to the bed. Oh, yes -- still in fleeting moments the young and glossy stud -- such as he really had never been.

He continued shaving, like a blind man, by touch and by sound, the sound of bristle and blade.

He inhaled the odors of stone, of urine, bitterly tonic, the smells of rust and of lubricants, felt the presence of a current of urgency, speed, of infinite desire, possibly related to the drive within himself, his own streaming nervous vitality.

напомнило (извините): "He could hear sounds from all over London, a murmuring. And as he listened, it resolved itself into its components, cars and arguments and music. He felt as if the music was everywhere, all around him, a hundred different rhythms in counterpoint, a tapestry being woven underneath him." и всякое такое

He clasped Ramona closer, felt that she was swelling, bursting, heart in the body, body in the tight-fitting red dress.

She sensed that he was strongly agitated, missed his habitual vagueness, the proud air of abstraction in which M. E. Herzog, Ph. D., had once been clothed.

Is this, by chance, the reality you have been looking for, Herzog, in your earnest Herzog way? Down in the ranks with other people -- ordinary life? By yourself you can't determine which reality is real. Any philosopher can tell you it's based, like all rational judgement, on common proof. Only this particular way of doing it was perverse. But it was only human. You burn the house to roast the pig. It was the way humankind always roasted pigs.

Whereas a man like me has shown the arbitrary withdrawal of proud subjectivity from the collective and historical progress of mankind. And that is true of lower-class boys and girls who adopt the aesthetic mode, the mode of rich sensibility. Seeking to sustain their own version of existence under the crushing weight of mass.

Thanks to Ramona he had no need to be greatly envious, but a little envy of the young was quite natural too.

Those strange lights, Herzog's brown eyes, so often overlaid with the film or protective chitin of melancholy, the by-product of his labouring brain, shone again.

I am lying in a hammock, chin on breast, hands clasped, mind jammed with thoughts, agitated, yes, but also cheerful, and I know you value cheerfulness -- true cheerfulness, not the seeming sanguinity of Epicureans, nor the strategic buoyancy of the heartbroken.
