My self-summary
"How is it that the poets have said so many fine things about our first love, so few about our later love? Are their first poems their best? Or are not those the best which come from their fuller thought, their larger experience, their deeper-rooted affections?"

"All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us."

“One breath taken completely; one poem, fully written, fully read — in such a moment, anything can happen.”

Every life is many days, day after day. We walk through ourselves, meeting robbers, ghosts, giants, old men, young men, wives, widows, brothers-in-love, but always meeting ourselves.

"All right," said Deep Thought. "The Answer to the Great Question..."
"Of Life, the Universe and Everything..." said Deep Thought.
"Is..." said Deep Thought, and paused.
"Forty-two," said Deep Thought, with infinite majesty and calm.”

I am liberal, agnostic, and intellectually creative. We would not be a good match if you are the opposite of those traits, or if you have a hard time accepting those attributes.
