„Vocations drying up, nobody wants to be selfless any more, everybody wants their fun.“

—  John Updike, livro Rabbit at Rest

Rabbit at Rest (1990)
Contexto: Now nuns have blended into everybody else or else faded away. Vocations drying up, nobody wants to be selfless any more, everybody wants their fun. No more nuns, no more rabbis. No more good people, waiting to have their fun in the afterlife. The thing about the afterlife, it kept this life within bounds somehow, like the Russians. Now there's just Japan, and technology, and the profit motive, and getting all you can while you can.
