"By now I can only muster up a feeble half-smile. “So what does your family do for Christmas? Big celebrations?” Oh shut up, you nosy cow, I think. You will probably faint if I tell you. You’ll have to pull down your oxygen mask." Dec 03, 2016 12:33AM

Blaise Pascal
“Our nature lies in movement; complete calm is death.”
Blaise Pascal

Ralph Waldo Emerson
“It is easy in the world to live after the world's opinion; it is easy in solitude to live after our own; but the great man is he who in the midst of the crowd keeps with perfect sweetness the independence of solitude.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson, The Complete Prose Works of Ralph Waldo Emerson

Carter G. Woodson
“The bondage of the Negro brought captive from Africa is one of the greatest dramas in history, and the writer who merely sees in that ordeal something to approve or condemn fails to understand the evolution of the human race.”
Carter G. Woodson, The Mis-Education of the Negro

Sylvia Plath
“I saw my life branching out before me like the green fig tree in the story. From the tip of every branch, like a fat purple fig, a wonderful future beckoned and winked. One fig was a husband and a happy home and children, and another fig was a famous poet and another fig was a brilliant professor, and another fig was Ee Gee, the amazing editor, and another fig was Europe and Africa and South America, and another fig was Constantin and Socrates and Attila and a pack of other lovers with queer names and offbeat professions, and another fig was an Olympic lady crew champion, and beyond and above these figs were many more figs I couldn't quite make out. I saw myself sitting in the crotch of this fig tree, starving to death, just because I couldn't make up my mind which of the figs I would choose. I wanted each and every one of them, but choosing one meant losing all the rest, and, as I sat there, unable to decide, the figs began to wrinkle and go black, and, one by one, they plopped to the ground at my feet.”
Sylvia Plath, The Bell Jar

William Shakespeare
“They do not love that do not show their love.”
William Shakespeare, The Two Gentlemen of Verona
