one puzzle of daily life at the villa was this: How do you retain a spirit of affection and humor in a crazed, homicidal, unpredictable society?

Boris Pasternak
“Now what is history? It is the centuries of systematic explorations of the riddle of death, with a view to overcoming death. That's why people discover mathematical infinity and electromagnetic waves, that's why they write symphonies. Now, you can't advance in this direction without a certain faith. You can't make such discoveries without spiritual equipment. And the basic elements of this equipment are in the Gospels. What are they? To begin with, love of one's neighbor, which is the supreme form of vital energy. Once it fills the heart of man it has to overflow and spend itself. And then the two basic ideals of modern man—without them he is unthinkable—the idea of free personality and the idea of life as sacrifice.”
Boris Pasternak, Doctor Zhivago

Paul Krugman
“The rich are different from you and me: they have more influence.”
Paul Krugman

Eleanor Roosevelt
“Many people will walk in and out of your life, but only true friends will leave footprints in your heart”
Eleanor Roosevelt

P.G. Wodehouse
“There is no surer foundation for a beautiful friendship than a mutual taste in literature.”
