Four In The Afternoon

Obviously, modern mechanised life becomes dreary if you let it. The awful thraldom of money is upon everyone and there are only three immediately obvious escapes. One is religion, another is unending work, the third is a kind of sluttish antinomianism—lying in bed till four in the afternoon, drinking Pernod. In any case, the essential evil is to think in terms of escape. The fact to which we have got to cling, as to a life-belt, is that it is possible to be a normal decent person and yet to be fully alive.

On The Nod

How many naps can a reasonable person take a day—the late morning, the early afternoon and late afternoon, before dinner, then after dinner on a couch in the living room preceding bedtime . . . .

Joseph Heller
