“The most fatal illusion is the settled point of view. Since life is growth and motion, a fixed point of view kills anybody who has one.”
Brooks Atkinson


In every age "the good old days" were a myth. No one ever thought they were good at the time. For every age has consisted of crises that seemed intolerable to the people who lived through them. ”
Brooks Atkinson

“Drop the last year into the silent limbo of the past. Let it go, for it was imperfect, and thank God that it can go.”
