"Something that’s always new, that’s immune to habit, that never gets old. That’s something worth having. Because habit is what destroys the world. Take a new car and put it in an air-controlled garage. Go look at it every day. After one year all that will remain of the car is a vague outline. Trees, stop signs, people, and books grow old, crumble, and disappear inside our habits. The reason old people don’t mind dying is because by the time you reach eighty, the world has basically disappeared. And then you discover a little piece of the world that’s immune to habit. There’s a little rip in my brain when I look at herion."
