Trent Reznor sent over sixteen different musical sketches between three-and-a-half and eight minutes long. It wasn’t really scored to any specific point; it was just kind of like—he said, ‘Well, here’s an idea, and here’s an idea, and I was sort of thinking of this for this, but we sort of moved stuff around and edit things and sort of fit it.’ And then, that track started playing. I think it was track seven, ironically. I was in my office, and I was scrolling through a little MP3, and all of a sudden, I heard this weird, it’s almost like legati, The Shining
, kind of like this odd dissonance, this guttural sound. And then over the top of it came this little piano melody. And I heard it and I said, ‘That’s the main titles.’ It was kind of astounding because it seemed to talk about this loneliness, the piano was this lonely—it was almost childlike, and yet it had this kind of seething anger, vitriol, that was sort of bubbling under it.
And in the end I think I’ve learned the final lesson from my travels in time; and I’ve even gone one step further than my father did: The truth is I now don’t travel back at all, not even for the day, I just try to live every day as if I’ve deliberately come back to this one day, to enjoy it, as if it was the full final day of my extraordinary, ordinary life.

Every writer, of every political flavor, has some neat historical analogy, or mini-lesson, with which to preface an argument for why we ought to bomb these guys or side with those guys against the guys we were bombing before. But the best argument for reading history is not that it will show us the right thing to do in one case or the other, but rather that it will show us why even doing the right thing rarely works out.
The biggest coward is a man who awakens a woman’s love with no intention of loving her.
Traveling alone has been everything except lonely for me.
