“This love was a torment, and he resented bitterly the subjugation in which it held him; he was a prisoner and he longed for freedom. Sometimes he awoke in the morning and felt nothing; his soul leaped, for he thought he was free; he loved no longer; but in a little while, as he grew wide awake, the pain settled in his heart, and he knew that he was not cured yet.”  — W. Somerset Maugham, Of Human Bondage

Brilliant. If you haven’t watched Friday Night Lights yet, I recommend starting (the inevitable binge) over a long weekend. Somerset Maugham is for anytime, as long as you’re prepared for the side-effects.
