I became insane with long intervals of horrible sanity.
Edgar Allen Poe
The trouble with fighting for human freedom is that one spends most of one's time defending scoundrels. For it is against scoundrels that oppressive laws are first aimed, and oppression must be stopped at the beginning if it is to be stopped at all.
- H. L. Mencken
Many people would sooner die than think; In fact, they do so
What I have been telling you, from alpha to omega, what is the one great thing the sigil taught me — that everything in life is miraculous. For the sigil taught me that it rests within the power of each of us to awaken at will from a dragging nightmare of life made up of unimportant tasks and tedious useless little habits, to see life as it really is, and to rejoice in its exquisite wonderfulness. If the sigil were proved to be the top of a tomato-can, it would not alter that big fact, nor my fixed faith.

I'll make this short today. I have to pack up my life. I'm moving again. I'll be staying with friends up in Westchester. That's not a great place for me to be but it's what I got. At least I'll be with friends.

Getting home was then difficult, a 17-minute wait for the . The next one was just 4 minutes behind it. That closed to 2 minutes.

I have it better than every character on the show. Today I'm leaving this room that's been my home the last few years. It's the worst place I ever lived for an extended period of time. And yet I'm feeling bad about leaving it. It does have a good location. No I don't like my neighborhood but I'm right on an express subway line so I can get places easily. What I'll really miss is that it's it is mine. My personal domain. I don't need the Seven Kingdoms. I found that all I need is one room as long as mine. It's not like leaving my house or my apartment but it's still been home.
