If I Ever Had to Write a Profile for a Personals Ad or My Epitaph, I Think I'd Use This

"Nothing is ever lost. If you have moved over vast territories and dared to love silly things, you will have learned even from the most primitive items collected and put aside in your life. From an ever-roaming curiosity in all the arts, from bad radio to good theatre, from nursery rhyme to symphony, from jungle compound to Kafka's Castle, there is basic excellence to be winnowed out, truths found, kept, savored, and used on some later day. To be a child of one's time is to do all these things."

- Ray Bradbury

As You Were

We see things not as they are,
but as we are.

-The Talmud
