Rachel Dratch
“How did I think of that?" I wondered. I didn't feel like I had thought of it. It's a sort of flow that happens when you are completely in the moment and not getting in your own way. Not trying so hard, not planning ahead, just getting out of your own head and letting the magic happen. You could apply this to any activity, of course. You could apply it to life.”
Rachel Dratch, Girl Walks into a Bar . . .: Comedy Calamities, Dating Disasters, and a Midlife Miracle

Carl Sagan
“There are naive questions, tedious questions, ill-phrased questions, questions put after inadequate self-criticism. But every question is a cry to understand the world. There is no such thing as a dumb question.”
Carl Sagan, The Demon-Haunted World: Science as a Candle in the Dark

Walker Evans
“Stare, pry, listen, eavesdrop. Die knowing something. You are not here long.”
Walker Evans

Colum McCann
“The world spins. We stumble on. It is enough.”
Colum McCann, Let the Great World Spin

William Shakespeare
“By the pricking of my thumbs,
Something wicked this way comes.”
William Shakespeare, Macbeth
