In the Face of Destiny

How helpless they all looked in the ugliness of sleep. A third of life spent unconscious and corpse-like. And some, the great majority, stumbled through their waking hours scarcely more awake, helpless in the face of destiny.

William Lindsay Gresham
Nightmare Alley

Nightmare Alley - Edmond Goulding 1947
