The night sky was still light, a glow to the west, and it was warm. Many waters cannot quench love: the anthems setting remained in her ears, repeating itself; a tune so powerful that it might gird one against the disappointments of life, rather than make one aware that our attempts to subdue the pain of unrequited love of impossible love, of love that we are best to put away and not to think about tended not to work, and only made the wounds of love more painful.

love does not cause suffering: what causes it is the sense of ownership, which is love's opposite.

It is in the thirties that we want friends. In the forties we know they won't save us any more than love did.

We do not grow absolutely, chronologically. We grow sometimes in one dimension, and not in another; unevenly. We grow partially. We are relative. We are mature in one realm, childish in another. The past, present, and future mingle and pull us backward, forward, or fix us in the present. We are made up of layers, cells, constellations.

while the leg room is constantly changing, the width of seats have not changed. only our phat arses have gotten wider. even worse than the phat arse is the upper body width of some of these guys!

some estimates are very carefully done, others don't involve much more than wetting a finger and putting it in the air.

I wish I could drink like a lady;
I can take one or two at the most --
Three and I'm under the table,
Four and I'm under the host.

a man will be imprisoned in a room with a door that's unlocked and opens inwards as long as it does not occur to him to pull rather than push.

"I notice," said the duck, "that you only talk with one of your mouths. Can't the other head talk as well?"

"Oh, yes," said the pushmi-pullyu. "But I keep the other mouth for eating--mostly. In that way I can talk while I am eating without being rude. Our people have always been very polite."
