"Books say: She did this because. Life says: She did this. Books are where things are explained to you; life is where things aren't. I'm not surprised some people prefer books. Books make sense of life.

--Julian Barnes, Flaubert's Parrot

"Curiosity is one of the permanent and certain characteristics of a vigorous intellect."

-- Samuel Johnson, The Rambler
