You still have a lot of time to make yourself be what you want. There’s still lots of good in this world.S.E. Hinton, The Outsiders

I seek the Vatican, and the palaces. I affect to be intoxicated with sights and suggestions, but I am not intoxicated. My giant goes with me wherever I go.

Let me never fall into the vulgar mistake of dreaming that I am persecuted whenever I am contradicted.
We are always getting ready to live, but never living.R.W.E.
