Found Words – Mad Men

“Teddy told me that, in Greek, nostalgia literally means, ‘the pain from an old wound.’ It’s a twinge in your heart, far more powerful than memory alone. This device isn’t a space ship; it’s a time machine. It goes backwards, forwards. It takes us to a place where we ache to go again. It’s not called the wheel; it’s called the carousel. It lets us travel the way a child travels, round and around, back home again, to a place where we know we are loved.”

-Don Draper, “The Wheel,” Mad Men S1E13
