Favorite Quotes:
"Let all of life be an unfettered howl."
                    —Vladimir Nabokov

"Geaux Saints!"

"And still deeper the meaning of that story of Narcissus, who because he could not grasp the tormenting, mild image he saw in the fountain, plunged into it and was drowned. But that same image, we ourselves see in all rivers and oceans. It is the image of the ungraspable phantom of life; and this is the key to it all."
                    —Ishmael, Moby Dick
