Dry? Infinite Jest?

I have these quotes written on a post-it note I don't know if they are from "Dry" - Augusten Burroughs, or "Infinite Jest" - David Foster Wallace. "Dry" deals pretty much exclusively with recovery from alcoholism, but "Infinite Jest" has an important story-line involving recovery too. So really the quotes could have come from either. Or maybe they were from "The Center Cannot Hold". Whatever, they made me think.
  • No single moment in and of itself is unendurable.
  • That you will become way less concerned with what other people think of you when you realize how seldom they do.
  • That sometimes human beings have to just sit in one place and like, hurt.
