there are in everyone’s life certain connections, twists, and turns
which pass awhile under the category of chance, but at last, well
examined, prove to be the very hand of God."
Sir Thomas Browne
"The voyage of discovery is not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes."
"To be nobody-but-yourself-in a world which is doing its best night and
day, to make you everybody else - means to fight the hardest battle
which any human being can fight…"
E. E. Cummings
