Quote by Proverb
Visits always give pleasure; if not the arrival, the departure.
This quote suggests that visits or encounters with people or places often bring about enjoyment or happiness. It implies that even if the initial arrival may not be pleasurable, there is still satisfaction that can be derived from the departure or culmination of the visit. It highlights the idea that experiences, particularly those involving social dynamics, offer a sense of fulfillment either during or after the encounter, making visits valuable in terms of the pleasure they bring.
Nowadays not even a suicide kills himself in desperation. Before taking the step he deliberates so long and so carefully that he literally chokes with thought. It is even questionable whether he ought to be called a suicide, since it is really thought which takes his life. He does not die with deliberation but from deliberation.
There was only one catch and that was Catch-22, which specified that a concern for ones own safety in the face of dangers that were real and immediate was the process of a rational mind. Orr was crazy and could be grounded. All he had to do was ask; and as soon as he did, he would no longer be crazy and would have to fly more missions. Orr would be crazy to fly more missions and sane if he didnt, but if he was sane he had to fly them. If he flew them he was crazy and didnt have to; but if he didnt want to he was sane and had to. Yossarian was moved very deeply by the absolute simplicity of this clause of Catch-22 and let out a respectful whistle.
