‘His usual mood was one of indefinite basic sadness. He had the dejected helplessness of an orphan — an inability to fill the emptiness of life between the sensational events of meals. This was reflected in the aimlessness of his movements, in his irrational fits of melancholia, his sad whimpering and his inability to settle down in one place.’

Nimrod, Bruno Shultz
