They marked the buoyancy of her tread, like the skim of a bird which has not yet alighted."

Today's Quote

I must, I must before I die find some way to say the essential thing that is in me, that I have never said yet – a thing that is not love or hate or pity or scorn but the very breath of life... I want to bring back into the world of men some little bit of new wisdom. There is a little wisdom in the world; Heraclitus, Spinoza, and a saying here and there. I want to add to it, even if ever so little."
Author: Bertrand Russell
