The Story of Our Lives

"It was the same everywhere! Everywhere they looked for "freedom" and "luck" in the past, out of sheer dread of their present responsibilities and future course. They drank and caroused for a few years and then they slunk away to become serious-minded gentlemen in the service of our state."
Demain by Herman Hesse

What are you going to do with yourself?
I think I'll get a predictable, stable, but well paying job, and settle into a complacent bourgeoisie lifestyle after a short flare of releasing youthful energy.
