This is my perspective, and has always been, my perspective on life. I have a very grim, pessimistic view of it, I always have since I was a little boy and it hasn’t gotten worse with age or anything. I do feel that it’s a grim, painful, nightmarish, meaningless experience and that the only way that you can be happy is that you tell yourself some lies and deceive yourself … and I’m not the first person to say this or the most articulate person on it, it was said by Nietzsche, it was said by Freud, it was said by Eugene O’Neil. One must have one’s delusions to live. If you look at life too honestly and clearly life does become unbearable because it’s a pretty grim enterprise, you will admit.
