"I'm a fan or Terry Theise. I buy his wines, I share his palate, and I just generally get where he's coming from as far as wines and their relation to food and life are concerned, so no surprise that I am very much enjoying this book so far." Oct 05, 2020 10:51PM

Bette Davis
“When a man gives his opinion, he's a man. When a woman gives her opinion, she's a bitch.”
Bette Davis

Edward Gorey
“I really think I write about everyday life. I don't think I'm quite as odd as others say I am. Life is intrinsically, well, boring and dangerous at the same time. At any given moment the floor may open up. Of course, it almost never does; that's what makes it so boring.”
Edward Gorey

James Baldwin
“You think your pain and your heartbreak are unprecedented in the history of the world, but then you read. It was books that taught me that the things that tormented me most were the very things that connected me with all the people who were alive, who had ever been alive.”
James Baldwin

Fernando Pessoa
“Literature is the most agreeable way of ignoring life.”
Fernando Pessoa, The Book of Disquiet

Robert A. Heinlein
“How you behave toward cats here below determines your status in Heaven.”
Robert A. Heinlein
