Golden Years

"American society is so disgusting. You get a house. You build a big, big fence. You buy a lot of insurance. You save your money for your Golden Years. Has anything ever in the history of the world been more of a misnomer than 'Your Golden Years'? Christ, your teeth are gone, your eyesight's gone, you can't have sex, your mind—everything's gone."
—Harry Crews, quoted in Getting Naked with Harry Crews, 1999
