“The reason you haven’t felt love is because it doesn’t exist. What you call love was invented by guys like me, to sell nylons. You’re born alone and you die alone and this world just drops a bunch of rules on top of you to make you forget those facts. But I never forget. I’m living like there’s no tomorrow, because there isn’t one.”

— Don Draper, Mad Men

Nostalgia - it’s delicate, but potent… in Greek, “nostalgia” literally means “the pain from an old wound.” It’s a twinge in your heart far more powerful than memory alone. This device isn’t a spaceship, it’s a time machine. It goes backwards, and forwards… it takes us to a place where we ache to go again. It’s a carousel that lets us travel the way a child travels - around and around, and back home again, to a place where we know we are loved.

The reason you haven’t felt love is because it doesn’t exist. What you call ‘love’ was invented by guys like me to sell nylons. Pretty sure about it. You’re born alone and you die alone and this world just drops a bunch of rules on top of you to make you forget those facts but I never forget. I’m living like there’s no tomorrow because… there isn’t one.

I can’t wait until next year when all of you are in Vietnam. You will be pining for the day someone was trying to make your life easier. And when you’re over there and you’re in the jungle and they’re shooting at you, remember you’re not dying for me because I never liked you.
