Our constant jockeying back and forth among our categories runs the gamut from the most routine behaviors to the most creative ones." - Author: Douglas R. Hofstadter

Quotes About Chelsea

Is there any reason not to open every window, and let the kind scent blanket all Chelsea? As a spell, against falling objects..." - Author: Thomas Pynchon
