Because somehow in our social existence today we're only allowed to express our feelings weirdly and indirectly. If you express them directly, everybody goes crazy.
I mean, we go to dinners and parties like that all the time. These evenings are really like sort of sickly dreams...because people are talking in symbols. No one says what they're really thinking about.

...that moment of being face to face with another person. It’s strange that we find it so frightening. I mean, first of all, there are some pretty good reasons for being frightened. The human being is a complex and dangerous creature. I mean, really, if you start living each moment? Christ, that’s quite a challenge. If you really reach out and you’re really in touch with the other person...
