3 Quotes

So I'm completely breaking this challenge.  I apologize for such destruction and delay, but without further to do, here are 3 of my favorite quotes.

"The optimist proclaims that we live in the best of all possible worlds; and the pessimist fears this is true."       - James Branch Cabell

“”I myself own a flower,” he continued his conversation with the businessman, “which I water every day. I own three volcanoes, which I clean out every week (for I also clean out the one that is extinct; one never knows). It is of some use to my volcanoes, and it is of some use to my flower, that I own them. But you are of no use to the stars.”

– The Little Prince [after talking to a man who collected stars], by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry.  (My all-time favorite book.  Read it if you haven’t!)


"Life is to be lived, not controlled; and humanity is won by continuing to play in face of certain defeat."       - The Invisible Man, by Ralph Ellison

    1. I really hope you do! The powerful symbolism and philosophy contained in so few pages is amazing. The Little Prince is also going to be a movie soon! (P.S. Sorry for destroying this challenge!)
