"Life"








                           "You drift from day to day - years go by. 

                                                Then a change comes. 

      What a strange thing to have happen halfway through your life.

                                                         What luck."

                                          - Johnny, _Light Sleeper_



"But in the case of human beings, friendship is a transitory art,

subject to discontinuance without further notice."

"WHAT I'M TELLING YOU IS, IF YOU WANT TO DO THINGS YOUR OWN WAY, YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE TO MAKE A *DECISION* - YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE TO FIND A LITTLE COURAGE.... IF YOU CARE ABOUT SOMETHING, YOU HAVE TO PROTECT IT - IF YOU'RE LUCKY ENOUGH TO FIND A WAY OF LIFE YOU LOVE, YOU HAVE TO FIND THE COURAGE TO *LIVE* IT."

- Owen Meany, John Irving's _A Prayer For Owen Meany_

"The most terrifying thing in the world is your own life, the fact that it's yours and nobody else's." - John Updike, _Rabbit is Rich_

 

 

 
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence;
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I--
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

"Sad to say, I must be on me way
So buy me beer or whiskey 'cause I'm going far away
I'd like to think I'll be returning when I can...."
