A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies… the man who never reads lives only one.
~ George R. R. Martin (A Dance with Dragons)
I have concluded through careful empirical analysis and much thought that there is someone looking out for me, keeping track of what I think about things, forgiving me when I do less than I ought, giving me strength to shoot for more than I think I’m capable of. I believe they know everything that I do and think, and they still love me, and I’ve concluded, after careful consideration, that this person keeping score is me.
~ Adam Savage
He may be halfway around the world, but he still gave me a Valentine’s Day.
