“I prefer to remain mysterious and have people make their own judgment calls about me.”

I don’t think man was meant to attain happiness so easily. Happiness is like those palaces in fairy tales whose gates are guarded by dragons: we must fight in order to conquer it.

  • Ron Weasley: [about Ginny and Dean] What is it he sees in her?
  • Harry Potter: She's smart... funny... attractive...
  • Ron: Attractive?
  • Harry: Well you know... she has nice... skin.
  • Ron: Skin. So you think Dean's dating my sister because of her skin?
  • Harry: Well, no, I'm just saying it could be a contributing factor.
  • Ron: Hermione's got nice skin. You know, as skin goes, I mean.
  • Harry: I-I've never really thought about it. But I suppose, yeah. Very nice. [long pause] ...I think I'll be going to sleep now.

I do believe that books can change lives and give people this kind of language they wouldn’t have had otherwise

Every form of happiness is one, every desire is driven by the same motor - by our love for a single value, for the highest potentiality of our own existence - and every achievement is an expression of it.
What really knocks me out is a book that, when you’re all done reading it, you wish the author that wrote it was a terrific friend of yours and you could call him up on the phone whenever you felt like it.

About:

computer science and middle eastern studies. i'm a proud cancer. read about me, ask me, or read my blog.

I’d like to travel back to when the Summer of Love seemed about to re-write all the rules forever. Ideally, I’d wake in some cedarwood pavilion in Old Kyoto, where the maple trees reflect on the tranquil morning lake, but almost immediately I’d have to dress, go out and attend a secret espionage meeting; If I thought about it, I really need to go traveling much more than I do, with no strings, no visas, just the freedom to move and get away whenever I want, and sometimes I wish numbers would add themselves up. I’d like to possess a super-weapon that can deflect any attack, and it would be amazing to see the fluid lines, the brilliant motility of Frank Gehry’s buildings in Bilbao, New York and LA. Pets? A friendly pig would be something of a conversation piece, and you can tell how clean and intelligent they are. Finally, I’d like to throw a party with a bit of South American carnival in it, and maybe I’d invite an angel along, to bring a blessing on everyone there. My wishes.
