beside oneself.

Let’s face it. We’re undone by each other. And if we’re not, we’re missing something.

– Judith Butler, ‘Precarious Life: The Powers of Mourning and Violence’.

“But you don’t need anything. You have everything,” I tell him.
Rip looks at me. ‘No I don’t.’
“What?”
“No I don’t.”
There’s a pause and then I ask, “Oh, shit, Rip, What don’t you have?”
“I don’t have anything to lose. ”

-Bret Easton Ellis, ‘Less Than Zero’.
