“Then it is dark; it is a night where kings in golden suits ride elephants over the mountains.”
John Cheever, The Stories of John Cheever

“I like the freedom that comes with lowered expectations.”
Phillip Lopate

George Eliot
“It is never too late to be what you might have been.”
George Eliot

Herman Melville

Let the most absent-minded of men be plunged in his deepest reveries--stand that man on his legs, set his feet a-going, and he will infallibly lead you to water, if water there be in all that region.

Herman Melville, Moby Dick
