"That is part of the beauty of literature. You discover that your longings are universal longings, that you're not lonely and isolated from anyone. You belong." --F. Scott Fitzgerald "The Augusteum warns me not to get attached to any obsolete ideas about who I am, what I represent, whom I belong to, or what function I may once have intended to serve. Yesterday I might have been a glorious monument to somebody, true enough -- but tomorrow I could be a fireworks depository. Even in the Eternal City... one must always be prepared for riotous and endless waves of transformation" --Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat Pray Love "Granted, history lends itself to the conclusion that pause is rare, that any respite is as merciful as it's bound to be brief, that the very nature of existence is unstable and it is therefore best to be prepared for just about any catastrophe lurking right around the corner on any arbitrary morning. Thus the only real surprise should be those single sunny awakenings on which there is no surprise. Yet in defiance of all we know in theory, it remains common psychic practice to assume that world affairs will keep bumbling along the way they've been doing, much as from day to day Galileo himself would have persistently perceived the spinning globe on which we hurtle as standing still" --Lionel Shriver, The Post-Birthday World "Over second and third cups flow matters of high finance, high state, common gossip, and low comedy. [Coffee] is a social binder, a warmer of tongues, a soberer of minds, a stimulant of wit, a foiler of sleep if you want it so. From roadside mugs to the classic demi-tasse, it is the perfect democrat." --Author Unknown "they are alive and well somewhere, the smallest sprout shows there is really no death, and if ever there was it led forward, and does not wait at the end to arrest it, and ceas'd the moment life appear'd. all goes onward and outward, nothing collapses and to die is different from what anyone supposed, and luckier" --Walt Whitman
