Two passages of writing I just love and could read over and over again. And, in fact, I do read them over and over again. Hope you like them, too.
“Let’s get hot and cold, because, darling new thing, we’re going through the weeds and the woods and just the sliver of the moon comes in through the dead branches, and the running rabbits and squirrels are underneath and above. Henry David Thoreau is out there thinking, loping around. Louis Pasteur is out there racing with the bacteria.”
– From Ray, by Barry Hannah
“All living things contain a measure of madness that moves them in strange, sometimes inexplicable ways. This madness can be saving; it is part and parcel of the ability to adapt. Without it, no species would survive.”
– From Life of Pi, by Yann Martel
