Off the Grid

Back soon. Some quotes in the meantime:

For a long, long time it seemed to me that I was about to begin real life. But there was always some obstacle in the way, something to be gotten through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, a debt to be paid. Then life would begin. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life.

- Alfred Souza


Never go out to meet trouble. If you just sit still, nine cases out of ten someone will intercept it before it reaches you.

- Calvin Coolidge


For peace of mind, resign as general manager of the universe.

- Larry Eisenberg


We are all of us compelled to read for profit, party for contacts, bowl for charity, drive for mileage, gamble for charity, go out for the evening for the greater glory of the municipality, and stay home for the weekend to rebuild the house. Minutes, hours, and days have been spared us. The prospect of filling them with the pleasures for which they were spared us has somehow come to seem meaningless, meaningless enough to drive some of us to drink and some of us to doctors and all of us to the satisfactions of an insatiate industry.

– Walter Kerr


The thing to remember is that the future comes one day at a time.

- Dean Acheson
