"Often, when I see frocks with manifold pleats, ruffles, and ornaments, fitting so beautifully on beautiful bodies, I think they will not remain that way for long, instead they will develop wrinkles that cannot be ironed out, thick, unremovable dust will settle in the ornaments, and nobody would be so ridiculous as to don the same precious frock every morning of every night."

- "Frocks",
Franz Kafka

"When life itself seems lunatic, who know where madness lies? Perhaps to be too practical may be madness. To surrender dreams, this may be madness. Too much sanity may be madness, and madness of all is to see life how it is and not how it should be."

-Miguel de Cervantes,
Don Quixote de la Mancha

I love doing many things, I am cursed with wicked curiosity, and if you met me, you'd probably think I was a bit eccentric, easily amused, and too inquisitive. But then again, its hard to imagine how I really come across now, isn't it? I don't think I'm very good at it.

If I like something, I'll tell you so.

    "Are you a god?" they asked Buddha
    "No", he replied
    "Are you a saint, then?" they persisted
    "No", he replied
    "Well, what are you?" they said
    "I am awake", he replied, and walked away.
