  • The loophole.
  • Yet you propose a plan to destroy me, a plan which demands, with an idiot’s crudeness, without loopholes, detours or escape, that I work at a loss-that I work, with every ton I pour costing me more than I’ll get for it-that I feed the last of my wealth away until we all starve together.
  • If you hold the irrational as your standard of value and the impossible as your concept of the good, if you long for rewards you have not earned, for a fortune or a love you don’t deserve, for a loophole in the law of causality, for an A that becomes non-A at your whim, if you desire the opposite of existence-you will reach it.
  • Rationality twenty-four hours a day, with no loophole, no rest, no escape? . Don’t look at me, God damn you!

  • There are no more uses of "loophole" in the book.
