"That's what the phone is taking away, the ability to sit there, like this. That's being a person, right? Because, underneath everything in your life, there's that thing, that forever-empty. You know? That knowledge that it's all for nothing and you're alone. It's down there, and sometimes when things clear away, you're in your car, and you start going, "Oh, here it comes, that I am alone," and it starts to visit on you, this sadness. Life is tremendously sad… so you're driving and go "Ahhh" [grabs phone], and that's why we text and drive. I look around, pretty much 100% of people who are driving are texting."
