Amory Blaine is reading The Princess and the Goblin: "And next summer we'll come back and see you wear it, Curdie's mother," she added. "Sha'n't we, king-papa?" [I chuckled that Irene refers to Curdie's unnamed mother this way, but considering what she calls her dad, it's no unexpected!]

Confucius
“By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest.”
Confucius

Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.
“Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.”
Theodore Roosevelt

Robert Frost
“Poetry is what gets lost in translation.”
Robert Frost

Rainer Maria Rilke
“Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books that are now written in a very foreign tongue. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer.”
Rainer Maria Rilke

Milan Kundera
“Anyone whose goal is 'something higher' must expect someday to suffer vertigo. What is vertigo? Fear of falling? No, Vertigo is something other than fear of falling. It is the voice of the emptiness below us which tempts and lures us, it is the desire to fall, against which, terrified, we defend ourselves.”
Milan Kundera, The Unbearable Lightness of Being
