“Except for pharmaceutical poison,

there are essentially only two drugs that Western civilization tolerates:

 

Caffeine from Monday to Friday

to energize you enough to make you a productive member of society,

 

and alcohol from Friday to Monday

to keep you too stupid to figure out the prison that you are living in.”

“I’ve always hated Mondays, the whole lot of them.

Too much whiplash, snapping the tired masses to attention.

God’s way, perhaps, of reminding us that we are not masters of our fate,

no matter how deluded we became during the weekend respite.”

“Sunday just came down like a nine-pound hammer

… it was tainted with the closing-in feeling of the loss of freedom.

Because after the sun went down,

it came back up on Monday morning.

And you had to go to work five more days.

And it sucked.”

“In my life long study of human beings,

I have found that no matter how hard they try,

they have found no way yet to prevent the arrival of Monday morning.

And they do try,

of course,

but Monday always comes,

and all the drones have to scuttle back to their dreary workday lives.”

“But no matter what happens, the earth keeps turning.

Monday monrning always comes and eventually,

sometimes excruciatingly slowly,

that Monday morning is followed by a Monday evening.”

“The universe contains any amount of horrible ways to be woken up,

such as the noise of the mob breaking down the front door,

the scream of fire engines,

or the realization that today is the Monday which on Friday night was a comfortably long way off. “

[ Terry PratchettDiscworldMoving Pictures ]
