Quotes About Meeting Obligations

"More and more, I felt that I was meeting people like Lee who didnt at all seem part of this modern world and this moment in time - the world of petty aggravations and obligations and boundaries, a time of bored cynicism - because how they lived and what they lived for was so optimistic.
