some old books, Lin Kristensen from New Jersey, USABooks 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. The only problem is that the lives they make sense of are other people's lives, never our own.

-- Julian Barnes (19 January 1946-) British novelist and short story writer, Flaubert's Parrot, p 168
