Paper Towns by John Green

We try to keep from worrying by playing a game we’ve just invented called That Guy Is a Gigolo. In the game, you imagine the lives of people in the cars around you. “The thing about That Guy Is a Gigolo, I mean the thing about it as a game, is that in the end it reveals a lot more about the person doing the imagining than it does about the person being imagined.”

I can’t help but feel that Whitman, for all his blustering beauty, might have been a bit too optimistic. We can hear others, and we can travel to them without moving, and we can imagine them, and we are all connected to the other by a crazy root system like so many leaves of grass–but the game makes me wonder whether we can really ever fully become another.
