Pretense of Humanity

"New York is beginning to wear on my nerves, and now
 that spring is coming I want to leave. The novelty has worn off; the city, with all its excitement and grandeur, is a terrible place. The tide swarms on; how people manage the pretense of humanity in such a jostling, surly ant-heap is beyond me."

William Styron, Selected Letters of William Styron
