“The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.”
Marcel Proust

“If personality is an unbroken series of successful gestures, then there was something gorgeous about him, some heightened sensitivity to the promises of life, as if he were related to one of those intricate machines that registered earthquakes ten thousand miles away.”
F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby

Benjamin Franklin
