"Nobody realizes that some people expend tremendous energy merely to appear normal."
Albert Camus

"Good friends, good books and a sleepy conscience: this is the ideal life."

"Persons attempting to find a motive in this narrative will be prosecuted; persons attempting to find a moral in it will be banished; persons attempting to find a plot in it will be shot. By Order of the Author."
Mark Twain
