They talked of trivial things – of people they knew casually, of a new building going up on the campus, of an old one torn down; but what they said did not seem to matter. A new tranquility had come between them. It was a quietness that was like the beginning of love; and almost without thinking, Stoner knew why it had come. They had forgiven themselves for the harm they had done each other, and they were rapt in a regard of what their life together might have been.Almost without regret he looked at her now; in the soft light of late afternoon her face seemed young and unlined. If I had been stronger, he thought; if I had known more; if I could have understood. And finally, mercilessly, he thought: if I had loved her more. As if it were a long distance it had to go, his hand moved across the sheet that covered him and touched her hand. She did not move; and after a while he drifted into a kind of sleep."
Author: John Edward Williams

Neither could a moron explain why a death camp was ultimately humane."

Once they hit six or seven they put away "Cinderella" andher shoe fetish, "The Three Little Pigs" with their violation of building codes, "Miss Muffet" and herwell-shaped tuffet—all forgotten or discounted. And maybe that's the way it has to be. To survive in theworld, you have to give up the fantasies, the make-believe. The only trouble is that it's not allmake-believe. Some parts of the fairy tales are all too real, all too true. There might not be a Red RidingHood, but there is a Big Bad Wolf. No Snow White, but definitely an Evil Queen. No obnoxiously cuteblond tots, but a child-eating witch… yeah. Oh yeah."

Today's Quote

Failure is just part of the process, and it's not just okay; it's better than okay. God doesn't want failure to shut us down. God didn't make it a three-strikes-and-you're-out sort of thing. It's more about how God helps us dust ourselves off so we can swing for the fences again. And all of this without keeping a meticulous record of our screw-ups."
