The fictionalized man can write! Don Draper: aphorist, ad man, icon and poet.
People tell you who they are but we ignore it, because we want them to be who we want them to be.
I like sleeping alone, stretching out like a skydiver, cool patches to roll onto. I should appreciate it more.
When a man walks into a room he brings his whole life with him. He has a million reasons for being anywhere. Just ask him for one. If you listen, he’ll tell you how he got there, how he forgot where he was going, and then he woke up. If you listen, he’ll tell you about the time he thought he was an angel, and dreamed of being perfect. And then he’ll smile with wisdom, content that he realised the world isn’t perfect. We’re flawed because we want so much more. We’re ruined, because we get these things, and wish for what we had.
