Quote [Manhattan]

He was given to fits of rage, Jewish liberal paranoia, male chauvinism, self-righteous misanthropy, and nihilistic moods of despair.

He had complaints about life, but never any solutions.

He longed to be an artist, but balked at the necessary sacrifices.

In his most private moments, he spoke of his fear of death, which he elevated to tragic heights, when in fact it was mere narcissism.
