Dave Eggers
“When I was very young I couldn't watch anything black and white on TV because I knew the people moving were now dust.”
Dave Eggers

William  Martin
“Do not ask your children
to strive for extraordinary lives.
Such striving may seem admirable,
but it is the way of foolishness.
Help them instead to find the wonder
and the marvel of an ordinary life.
Show them the joy of tasting
tomatoes, apples and pears.
Show them how to cry
when pets and people die.
Show them the infinite pleasure
in the touch of a hand.
And make the ordinary come alive for them.
The extraordinary will take care of itself.”
William Martin, The Parent's Tao Te Ching: Ancient Advice for Modern Parents

“I need the thing that happens when your brain shuts off and your heart turns on.”
Elizabeth Wurtzel, Prozac Nation
