A quarter of America is a dramatic, tense, violent country, exploding with contradictions, full of brutal, physiological vitality, and that is the America that I have really loved and love. But a good half of it is a country of boredom, emptiness, monotony, brainless production, and brainless consumption, and this is the American inferno.
You have to relax when you're shooting an arrow. You can't be tense. And that just helps, in your day-to-day life.

Existence really is an imperfect tense that never becomes a present.
Loved. You can't use it in the past tense. Death does not stop that love at all.

James D. Watson
