To live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion; to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not, rich; to listen to stars and birds, babes and sages, with open heart; to study hard; to think quietly, act frankly, talk gently, await occasions, hurry never; in a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common--this is my symphony.

Drawing Conclusions

A conversation between Dad and Sam who is reading 100 Cupboards by Nate Wilson.

Dad: Sam, are you enjoying that book?
Sam: Yes.
Dad: What's the main character's name?
Sam: Henry.
Dad: Do you like the story?
Sam: Yes, but he can't draw humans.
Dad: Henry can't draw humans?
Sam: No, the author.
Dad: How do you know?
Sam: A lucky guess. There are no pictures.
