“My life is no longer pulled in different directions or tied to anyone or anything; it is closed in on itself in the silence of death. I turn off the light and shut my eyes. I feel the rhythmic movement of the train as it rolls into the unknown; this movement also brings me peace—the peace of an alibi. Not only am I separated from everything, but I am not situated at any particular spot in the universe: I’m just passing through. I have no more ties to the earth, no more desire or curiosity.” —Simone de Beauvoir, America Day by Day
