“It was time to take the pumpkin out of the pot and eat it. In the final analysis, that was what solved these big problems of life. You could think and think and get nowhere, but you still had to eat your pumpkin. That brought you down to earth. That gave you a reason for going on. Pumpkin.”
Alexander McCall Smith, The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency

Pete Seeger
“Do you know the difference between education and experience? Education is when you read the fine print; experience is what you get when you don't. ”
Pete Seeger

Alexander McCall Smith, Friends, Lovers, Chocolate
