Daily Euphoria: David Foster Wallace Quote

“’Mario, what do you get when you cross an insomniac, an unwilling agnostic and a dyslexic?’

‘I give.’

‘You get someone who stays up all night torturing himself mentally over the question of whether or not there’s a dog.’”

David Foster Wallace, excerpted from  Infinite Jest (1996)
