quotes to simmer by (it is going to be 43C here tomorrow…)

Pludek: You see, Berta?  Instead of a total victory one time or a total defeat another, he prefers to win a little and lose a little each time.                                                                                                                                                                                                           Mrs Pludek: Such a player will always stay in the game.

The Garden Party by Vaclav Havel, Act 1, Scene 1

Week after week, we witness the same miracle: that God, for reasons unfathomable, refrains from blowing our dancing bear act to smithereens.  Week after week Christ washes the disciples’ dirty feet, handles their very toes, and repeats, It is all right – believe it or not – to be people.

Annie Dillard
