To be able to say how much love, is love but little. Death is the ugly fact which Nature has to hide, and she hides it well.

The older I grow the more I distrust the familiar doctrine that age brings wisdom. I write to discover what I think. After all, the bars aren’t open that early.


Unless we remember we cannot understand. In the Spring, I have counted 136 different kinds of weather inside of 24 hours. Lead us not into temptation. Just tell us where it is; we’ll find it.

Love and fear. Everything the father of a family says must inspire one or the other.


There’s something to be said in favor of working in isolation in the real world.
