“Doing that kind of work, you really get to know if you like animals. If you can somehow enjoy cleaning out their cages, then you know you genuinely love animals.”
Jack Hanna, Monkeys on the Interstate: And Other Tales from Americas Favorite Zookeeper

John Irving
“You take every opportunity given you in this world, even if you have too many opportunities. One day, the opportunities stop, you know.”
John Irving, The Hotel New Hampshire

“When I saw you I fell in love. And you smiled because you knew.”
Arrigo Boito

John Irving
“And Father said, “There are no happy endings.” “Right!” cried Iowa Bob – an odd mixture of exuberance and stoicism in his cracked voice. “Death is horrible, final, and frequently premature,” Coach Bob declared. “So what?” my father said. “Right!” cried Iowa Bob. “That’s the point: So what?” Thus the family maxim was that an unhappy ending did not undermine a rich and energetic life. This was based on the belief that there were no happy endings.”
John Irving, The Hotel New Hampshire

John Irving
“Human beings are remarkable - at what we can learn to live with. If we couldn't get strong from what we lose, and what we miss, and what we want and can't have, then we couldn't ever get strong enough, could we? What else makes us strong?”
John Irving, The Hotel New Hampshire
