of marvelous golden

“I had this idea that there was a whole world of marvelous golden people somewhere…Sort of super-heroic people, all of them beautiful and witty and calm and kind, and I always imagined that when I did find them I’d suddenly know that I belonged among them, that I was one of them, that I’d been meant to be one of them all along, and everything in the meantime had been a mistake.”

—Richard Yates, Revolutionary Road
