A crisp and funny little story. A backstory for the one I read earlier: Mr. Penumbra's 24 Hour Bookstore. Combining the quiet aura of an independent (and mysterious) bookshop, hippy and eccentric people and (eccentric?) tech company like google.

“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.”
Albert Einstein

Ernest Hemingway
“If you are lucky enough to have lived in Paris as a young man, then wherever you go for the rest of your life, it stays with you, for Paris is a moveable feast.”
Ernest Hemingway, A Moveable Feast

E.B. White
“If the world were merely seductive, that would be easy. If it were merely challenging, that would be no problem. But I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.”
E.B. White

Viktor Shklovsky
“You have to store up books, becoming acquainted with human experience; let them lie around your thoughts, becoming yours—ring upon ring, as a tree grows, let them rise up from the depths like coral islands.

If it gets crowded with all the books and there's nowhere to put your bed, it's better to exchange it for a folding bed”
Viktor Shklovsky

Robert Frost
“In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life: it goes on.”
Robert Frost
