Life never gives us what we want at the moment that we consider appropriate. Adventures do occur, but not punctually.
{ EM Forester, A Passage to India }

“It’s been my experience that you can nearly always enjoy things if you make up your mind firmly that you will.”
{ LM Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables }


What astounded him was the knowledge that he had experienced rather little; when he thought about this he felt embarrassed; yes, he was ashamed, because to live here on earth so long and to experience so little was ignominious.
{ Milan Kundera, Laughable Loves }

{ Edward Mathieu, The Life of a Chef }
