"Most of life is so dull that there is nothing to be said about it, and the books and talk that would describe it as interesting are obliged to exaggerate in hopes of justifying their own existence."
E. M. Forster, A Passage to India

"To live is so startling it leaves little time for anything else."
Emily Dickinson
