two thoughts for the day

(Or, now I can delete these from my stickies, where I save fragments that I cannot let go, yet don't know what to do with)

1. “All the tragedies which we can imagine,” said Simone Weil, the French philosopher who starved herself to death at age 34, “return in the end to the one and only tragedy: the passage of time.”

2. Many of our seeming woes are simply the ghosts of lizards holding on to our shoulder blades. (Don't know who said this, unhappily)

There, that was worthwhile, wasn't it?
