There was a silence you could have cut in chunks. A long silence. It stretched out and lasted until it became an answer in itself.

Frederic Brown, The Fabulous Clipjoint, 1947

He laughed a little, bitterly. ‘Sometimes I feel like finding one of these big-time gambling games you hear about, where there’s no limit, and betting my little bankroll on one blackjack hand, quit win or lose. Then either I’d have enough, or nothing. And nothing wouldn’t be much worse than half enough. Maybe better.’

'Better, how?'

'Then I could quit worrying about it. Then every time I spent a quarter for a shot of whiskey or a dime for a glass of beer, it wouldn’t hurt me. I’m not worried about going to hell, Ed, but I begrudge the money the ticket costs.'

Frederic Brown, The Fabulous Clipjoint, 1947

…in every exuberant joy there is heard an undertone of terror, or else a wistful lament over an irrecoverable loss.

Friedrich Nietzsche, The Birth of Tragedy, 1872
