— Last Man Standing —

I often find that a novel, even a well-written and compelling novel, can become a blur to me soon after I've finished reading it.

— Kesha

I want to see all the countries in the world and learn all the languages. I want to have thousands of friends and I want all my friends to be different. I want to play six instruments.

I need to read at least one major book every week. And I need to remember that my seventy years are going to go by too quickly.

— John Maynard Keynes
