"Still I say, what means it? (...) I admit I'm a braggart, but I'm not calling it thus because what was the use of it all anyway, for as the Preacher sayeth: "Vanity of vanities . . . all is vanity." You kill yourself to get to the grave. Especially you kill yourself to get to the grave before you even die, and the name of that grave is "success," the name of that grave is hullaballoo boomboom horseshit."
Jack Kerouac, Duluoz, o vaidoso (Vanity of Duluoz)
