Time on his hand and himself on his mind

“You just… you just don’t do anything. You get lost in your head, and you sit around thinking instead of getting on with something, and most of the time you think rubbish. You always seem to miss what’s really happening.”

[…]

“Something more than waiting for life to change and keeping your options open. You’d keep your options open for the rest of your life, if you could. You’ll be lying on your deathbed, dying of some smoking-related disease, and you’ll be thinking, well, at least I’ve kept my options open. At least I never ended up doing something I couldn’t back out of.”
