[The First Night Stephen And I Slept Together, He Whispered Numbers Into My Ear: Long, High Numbers -- Distances Between Planets, Seconds In A Life. He Spoke As If They Were Poetry, And They Became Poetry. Later, When He Fell Asleep, I Leaned Over Him And Watched, Trying To Picture A Mathematician's Dreams. I Concluded That Stephen Must Dream In Abstract, Cool Designs Like Mondrian Paintings.]

Quotes About Age Of Innocence Ellen

Actually, you can see it all around, once you learn to spot it." - Author: Diane Duane
