Nathanael West Quotes: Their Boredom Becomes More And More

Their Boredom Becomes More And More Terrible. They Realize That They've Been Tricked And Burn With Resentment. Every Day Of Their Lives They Read The Newspapers And Went To The Movies. Both Fed Them On Lynchings, Murder, Sex Crimes, Explosions, Wrecks, Love Nests, Fires, Miracles, Revolutions, War. This Daily Diet Made Sophisticates Of Them. The Sun Is A Joke. Oranges Can't Titillate Their Jaded Palates. Nothing Can Ever Be Violent Enough To Make Taut Their Slack Minds And Bodies. They Have Been Cheated And Betrayed. They Have Slaved And Saved For Nothing.
