Cheryl Strayed
“The story of human intimacy is one of constantly allowing ourselves to see those we love most deeply in a new, more fractured light. Look hard. Risk that.”
Cheryl Strayed, Tiny Beautiful Things: Advice on Love and Life from Dear Sugar

Anne Fadiman
“A philosophy professor at my college, whose baby became enamored of the portrait of David Hume on a Penguin paperback, had the cover laminated in plastic so her daughter could cut her teeth on the great thinker.”
Anne Fadiman, Ex Libris: Confessions of a Common Reader

“Tango had helped me forget, if only temporarily. Perhaps it was the having to concentrate so damn hard, but it seemed more than that. Something about the connection, the struggling to sense with the palms of my hands which way my partner wanted me to move, the being with another person so completely, the comfort of our contact.”

Frank Zappa
“So many books, so little time.”
Frank Zappa

“If you listen to tango music then you’ll discover it matches your mood. When you want to find it gloomy then you will, but it can as easily be soulful, passionate or uplifting. For me that evening the music wasn’t beautiful at all. It nagged me, reminded me that time was passing; it set me on edge; it was relentless. I watched the dancing, waited for Angelo to come, and felt nothing but sadness.”
