If God had wanted us to vote, he would have given us candidates.

The sad truth is that excellence makes people nervous.
— Shana Alexander

I hate life, I hate death and everything in between just doesn’t interest me.
— Chris Rapier

Do the one thing you think you cannot do. Fail at it. Try again. Do better the second time. The only people who never tumble are those who never mount the high wire. This is your moment. Own it.
— Oprah Winfrey

Work is not man’s punishment. It is his reward and his strength and his pleasure.
— George Sand

I’m reading George Sand’s novels ATM, albeit slowly. Consuelo, for example, is taking me years. I mean, literally. Years. I started it sometime late November ’07, I think. It’s a good book if you remember that back then people had no television, radio, and photography. For the hyperactive mind of today, overwhelmed with RSS readers, constant television, and other visual noise, all the landscapes and feelings she paints are tedious.
