My favorite poem

  1. Elsewhere the world may be blustering or sleeping, wars are fought, people live and die, some nations disintegrate, while others are born, soon to be swallowed up in turn—and in all this sound and fury, amidst eruptions and undertows, while the world goes its merry way, bursts into flames, tears itself apart and is reborn: human life continues to throb.

    So, let us drink a cup of tea.

     — Muriel Barbery, The Elegance of the Hedgehog
  2. If you mean to murder me, then bloody well get on with it.

     — George R. R. Martin, A Storm of Swords
  3. Monday is an awful way to spend 1/7 of your life.

     — Steven Wright
  4. Any color, so long as it’s black.

     — Henry Ford
  5. We know everything there is to know about kissing. It requires 34 facial muscles and 112 postural muscles.

     — The Big Bang Theory, “The Agreement Dissection” (2011)
