I thought it was remarkably deep. The psychology of why we keep clutter in our homes was interesting.

Elizabeth and 1 other person liked Christina's review of One Fifth Avenue:
One Fifth Avenue by Candace Bushnell
"I most enjoyed the underlying theme on how easily all people misconstrue the actions of others, and even further, how these false assumptions are taken so deeply personally that we literally start living our lives in reaction to what we think we s..." Read more of this review »

Prep for interview with Candace. Kind of a madcap romp. Bushnell said the story was heavily influenced by 1940s movies where the women "have speeches." Fun.

W. Somerset Maugham
“Supposing there is no life everlasting. Think what it means if death is really the end of all things. They've given up all for nothing. They've been cheated. They're dupes."

Waddington reflected for a little while. "I wonder if it matters what they have aimed at is illusion. Their lives are in themselves beautiful. I have an idea that the only thing which makes it possible to regard this world we live in without disgust is the beauty which now and then men create out of the chaos. The pictures they paint, the music they compose, the books the write, and the lives they lead. Of all these the richest beauty is the beautiful life. That is the perfect work of art.”
W. Somerset Maugham, The Painted Veil

Ira Gershwin
“The way you wear your hat,
The way you sip your tea,
The mem'ry of all that --
No, no! They can't take that away from me!”
Ira Gershwin

If you have confidence you have patience. Confidence, that is everything.
“If you have confidence you have patience. Confidence, that is everything.”
Ilie Nastase

“Art exists that one may recover the sensation of life, it exists to make one feel things, to make the stone stoney .”

Julian Barnes
“Books say: She did this because. Life says: She did this. Books are where things are explained to you; life is where things aren't. I'm not surprised some people prefer books.”
Julian Barnes, Flaubert's Parrot
