every week

If I had my life to live over again, I would have made a rule to read some poetry and listen to some music at least once every week.

Charles Darwin as quoted by Henry Drummond in Stones Rolled Away: And Other Addresses to Young Men, Delivered in America (1899)



Nostalgic for the past, while yearning to cast off the chains of bygone ages and step forward into the bright utopia of the future. Proud of its achievements, yet despising its own flaws.

Marie Brennan, With Fate Conspire (2011)

Note: This is a quote about London, but it struck me as pretty fitting for end-of-the-year reflections, too 🙂



Before it’s too late, without thinking too much about it first, pack a pillow and a blanket and see as much of the world as you can. You will not regret it. One day it will be too late.

Jhumpa Lahiri, The Namesake (2004)
