Morning Musings (I.E. Reading) 12/28/2015

Here are some quotes from my morning reading that I found deep or amusing:

“It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.

However little known the feelings or views of such a man may be on his first entering a neighbourhood, this truth is so well fixed in the minds of the surrounding families, that he is considered the rightful property of some one or other of their daughters.”

— from “Pride and Prejudice.”

Well, good thing I’m in possession of no such fortune lol :P. Good to know nobody’s conspiring for me in that regard :P.

Anyway, here’s the other one.

“… I am haunted
by the feeling that she is saying
melting lords of death, avalanches,
rivers and moments of passing through.
And I am replying, ‘Yes, yes.
Shoes and pudding.'”

— from “Say You Love Me” by Jack Gilbert.

Been there sir, been there. Glad to see I’m not the only one :).
