I wouldn't mind seeing China if I could come back the same day.
One of the quainter quirks of life is that we shall never know who dies on the dame day as we do ourselves.
What are days for?
Days are where we live.
They come, they wake us
Time and time over.
They are to be happy in:
Where can we live but days?
But, o, photography! as no art is,
Faithful and disappointing! That records
Dull days as dull, and hold-it smiles as frauds,
And will not censor blemishes,
Like washing-lines, and Hall's-Distemper boards
The first day after a death, the new absence
Is always the same; we should be careful Of each other, we should be kind
While there is still time.
He married a woman to stop her getting away Now she's there all day.
All the unhurried day / Your mind lay open like a drawer of knives,
Quote of the day
